    Even though the retailer I ordered from screwed up their orders, Sony managed to allocate a new shipment. They seem to be doing a formidable job. And I'll get my long sought after PS4

    @Bligmerk:Yes, although they could be saving up for Japan launch. And you might have to factor in packaging, shipping and logistics delay.

This sold-through number is pretty solid evidence that Sony production didn't make it to manufacturing 1 million PS4 per month. The plants went full force in August, so August, September, October, November to reach 2.1 million (since they are all sold out), means they are averaging 500,000 per month. So, now moving forward to the Japan/Asia launch means December, January, February, which could indicate Sony only having another 1.5 million for that launch. From the way things are looking, the Japan launch will be 1 million and another record for Playstation in Japan. The "launch window" for global launch numbers doesn't end until February, and it doesn't look like MS is going to launch in Japan at all.
    You assume uniform production, which is atypical. August would have been setting up the first lines, running test units and ironing out kinks. Then start ramping up production in September to maybe 1/2 of max production by end of September, and maybe full 1M per Month rate by end of October. Keep in mind these are hitting those run rates at the end of those months, not for the full month. So maybe somewhere in the 1.5M units available for shipping at beginning of November, which is when the shipping to the distribution centers in NA happened. Another 0.5M produced by Mid Nov when units start shipping to EU sites for distribution. So that's a bit over 2M units and up at a 1M unit per month run rate. Expect another 1M units shipped to retailers before the holidays to be > 3M units be end of this year.

    And at that production rate that can build to about 6M units by end of Fiscal year. Though they're conservatively estimating 5M units sales should sales drop off (which often happens after the holidays.) But expect a solid 0.5M in sales at the Japan launch alone.

    The PS3 launch in Japan was 500,000 and that sold out in two days with huge shortages. I was careful to say "average". Of course, production lines will ramp up but it usually means adding facilities. That will come after the launch window. Nah, Japan is more like an easy 1 million, with some shortages. There is a huge shift starting to happen in JRPG and the devs aren't wasting time with politics, they are identifying the PS4 as their prime platform, if not only platform.

    They need to keep the momentum going by releasing more games that take advantage of the console.

    Lol.

    Awesome news. If they had 4 million they would have sold them all.

    I want to apologize to those who may have misconstrued my previous post as a backhanded jab at Sony. That wasn't the intention at all, but Rapture pointed out to me where it could have been viewed that way.

    I am truly glad that Sony seems to be doing very well. Although they are my 2nd platform videogames-wise, for years they have been #1 for most of my other electronics (Televisions, DVD/Blu-Ray players, home theaters, etc etc). But as you all know, Sony has been hurting in the last 7 or 8 years from the Koreans (Samsung, LG) and they aren't quite the shinning beacon they once where. They've had to cut back to survive and the PlayStation brand was kinda seen as their main chance for survival.

    I'm glad the PS4 is doing well. That helps Sony stick around as a company. Cuz a market without Sony just wouldn't be the same. I debate Sony fans a lot..... and although it may seem like I don't have Sony's back by doing so, that truly isn't the case.

    I might be asking this in the wrong place, but can someone give me some pointers on where to buy a PS4 in London? Or do I just have to wait until the new year to get one?

    I'm glad to see this become a sticky. The PS4 deserves a permanent sales thread too.

    Thought it was worth including it in this thread as well:

    According to El33tonline, the launch figures for the PlayStation 4 in South Africa have deemed it “the fastest selling console in Ster Kinekor Entertainment history,” reports the South African distributor.

    Mario Dos Santos, CEO of Ster Kinekor Entertainment, speaks highly of the PS4's success:

    “It has been an interesting road full of surprises this last year in the lead up to the PS4 announcement and we are ecstatic that we’ve broken a SKE record with these sales thanks to our loyal customers and stakeholder support. The demand continues to overwhelm supply, but we’re working extremely hard to get PS4 consoles into the hands of customers as quickly as possible," he commented.

    PlayStation 4 has sold 530,000 units in the UK in just five weeks

    PlayStation 4 has sold 530,000 units in the UK in just five weeks, according to ERA (using Chart-Track data).

    Lets discuss this news. Before trolls try to move it to the VS section.

    Yes MODS, I have seen the " sales sticky" guess what, no one else has. People blank it out, the same way people blank out certain shelves in a supermarket aisle.

    And sold means in someone's living room. The demand is still sky high to.

    Strong start, lots of devs jumping on those numbers, great times ahead.
