    PS4 Sales and Numbers Thread

    Discuss

    https://twitter.com/PlayStationEU/st...82723294470144

    In what is shaping up to be a historic year for gamers, I’m delighted to share an important new milestone with you. PS4′s North American debut on 15th November was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours. Now, with PS4′s global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold.

    It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible line-up of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.

    While PS4′s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that videogames represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play.

    Thank you for your passion and your support – we couldn’t have done this without you.

    LAWD! like I said, unto the next one

    The break down
    Tokyo, December 3, 2013 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced that cumulative sell through for the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system worldwide has surpassed 2.1 million units*1 as of December 1, 2013. The number includes the 700,000 units sold through in Europe and Australasia launching on November 29. The PS4 system became available on November 15 in the United States and Canada and on November 29 in Europe, Australasia and Latin America and is now available in 32 countries globally.

    “PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history with the North American release and we’ve continued this incredibly successful start in Europe, Australasia and Latin America,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide, but we are diligently working to meet those growing demands and to deliver additional PS4 units to our retail partners throughout the holiday season. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support.”

    PS4 consumers embraced the deep social capabilities offered by the PS4 system, including heavy use of live broadcasting on Ustream and Twitch and sharing content through Facebook® and Twitter. PS4 gamers have demonstrated particular interest in the new “SHARE” button on the DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller, with more than 6.5 million shares captured.

    Looking ahead, the PS4 system will evolve through PlayStation’s cloud gaming services, available in the U.S. in 2014. Based on Gaikai Inc.’s cloud-based technology, the service will enable users to have access to a catalog of critically acclaimed PlayStation®3 (PS3™) games on PlayStation 4 and PS3, followed by PlayStation®Vita.

    *1 Number of retail sales to consumers is estimated by SCEI.

    Good number. Would probably have been even higher if there was enough PS4's available.

    Would've been much higher indeed if there were more ps4 available for sure.. in Norway the number was incrediable low. I think 10 000 machines were available here. I was offered 600 $ over what I bought mine for

    I dont know kinda worries me a lil.. last gen xbox was the cheaper option so most kids got that. That meant online being filled with loud-mouth, rude and annoying kids. Many times i met people online telling me that they were originally xbox-gamers but changed cos it was too annoying playing online there.. i fear that will happen with ps4 this year.
    I know u can always mute em, but still it gets annoying.

    I was waiting for a worldwide sales number confirmation. Now if even more were available this number would sky rocket. Or perhaps it is in best interest to keep the demand high? Either way the PS4 is a hit, and now we just need a good flow of awesome games. Oh wait........they are coming!

    I really have to commend Sony for their dedication during this launch. When my retailer botched up my order and sendt out units left and right to people that came late - Sony made sure everyone got their order. My PS4 is finally on its way!

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    hot damn. PS4 production can't keep up with demand. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up one in March. I need my Infamous fix. I'm thinking about preordering it so I can get the Cole’s Legacy DLC(won't be sold through psn)

    If the supply was there surpassing 5 million would occur well before March.

    The subject line isn't quite correct. It should be the NA/EU launch, not worldwide. There is a Japan/Asia launch still coming. 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.
