PS4 pre-order numbers revealed

Sony during its gamescom presser has announced a host of new PS4 details including its release date. What came as a surprise was the fact that it also revealed that the console has already been pre-ordered more than 1 million times. (PS4, Sony)

1 mil! That's really fantastic. I thought it was gonna be in the hundred thousands, but this is insane!

Just goes to show you, when you show that you care about the gamers, the gamers respond accordingly.

Looking forward to playing some well-populated Battlefield matches online.

MS must have heard about this number and started second guessing all their decisions.

Well deserved Sony.

I wonder how this ranks all time for console pre-orders.
MWong  +   621d ago
Has to rank pretty high, will get higher since the console release is still 4 months away. I don't think I have ever heard a console with pre-orders that high. Especially after only starting pre-orders a little over 2 months ago.

I wonder if MS will reveal their numbers now? I can't imagine the One has more than 250,000 per-orders with all the controversy MS have generated over the last few months. Most of my friends still think the Xbox One won't play used games.

Lol the pre-orders are already a 1/3 the total Wii U install base. Looks like its Wii U vs X1 this gen.

Just posted the preorder news but you got to it first. Like Damn. :(

That's amazing, I knew the pre-orders were high but not that high.....I don't even think the PS2 pre-order numbers were that high nor the PS3 numbers either.

Good job by Sony for listening to the gamers and giving them what they want in a console, now the carnage officially begins by Sony.
