USA Preorders Chart, 9 November 2013 - PlayStation 4 Sets Record

"There are nine games in the top 40 to be in its final week: Eight of the nine games are for the PlayStation 4 which launched today on November 15. Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Madden NFL 25, NBA 2K14, Knack, and FIFA Soccer 14.

First week sales for the PlayStation 4 are expected to set an opening week record for a console. The console is expected to sell around one million units in its opening week.

Five games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, down from seven last week, and the top 15 has 100,000 or more pre-orders, up from 15 last week. Five games added 20,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week and 20 added 10,000 or more, up from 16 last week." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, PS4)

wow look at that PlayStationRawrr ;). more sales=more money= better games & more tech. hell yes! :D

I wonder which system held the previous record?

Wii maybe?
mikeslemonade  +   237d ago
Giggman you're smart.


Wii with 600k essentially in the first week. Sony did a good job timing the annoucments and making the supply. Certainly a lot smoother than the PS3s with the complications of the cell chips.
Eonjay  +   237d ago
And that ladies and gentlemen is why PSN is down. I just set my system up and its AMAZING!
ThanatosDMC  +   237d ago
Ouch, those Xbone numbers. MS might lower the price soon or even release a Kinect less sku.
Irishguy95  +   236d ago
Jealous of all you *******s, I can wait till March but dammit it would be nice to have it right now. Just for Resogun haha

Can anyone give me their impressions on all the games they've played so far? All F2P ones, AAA's, any of them?

coulndt agree more its like PS2 all over again ¡¡¡

only sony could pull this off ¡¡¡
pyramidshead  +   237d ago
In primarily Xbox territory too which is the important part. Will be interesting to see the UK pre-order numbers and sales as well as the UK is a lil Xbox Island. The rest of Europe is practically up for Sony domination.
Langkasuka  +   237d ago
Sony is also launching PS4 in South East Asia in about one month's time, which is a predominantly PC region. We were pleasantly surprised we get to join the 2013 launch time frame. I think it will sell very well, a lot of talk here about the PS4 social media features.
GT67  +   237d ago
If you build it (PS4) gamers will come by the butt load.

you will see downgrade after multiple issues on the system which is happening in mass ,whow sony were playing with all of us this time ,they were playing politics with us and was striking on weak parts of xb1 to get more pre orders and say wow sony are god of gaming.
NewAgeisHere  +   236d ago
If you think Sony is doing good now, wait till it hits Europe.......from what I hear demand is so high that anyone who hasn't preordered will be getting his console in january if he's lucky.
Zefros  +   237d ago
Rememeber this is JUST NA, not even launched in europe and asia yet, this is huge news!
GiggMan  +   237d ago
Agreed. Congrats Sony.

Now don't sleep, and keep the ball rolling.
Sarcasm  +   237d ago
So they're probably going to hit their 3 million target by the end of this month.
T2  +   236d ago
Jeez is that possible ? Wow a record even I didnt see that coming
AD705  +   236d ago
When does the PS4 launch in Europe and Asia?

Correct me if im wrong but doesn't the PS4 launch in Europe a week after the xbox one?

Yup nov 29 I believe.

Lowsnamebrand  +   237d ago
im waiting to here official numbers because what i saw last night was nothing short of amazing, about 30 people with preorders and another 30 to 40 in a separate line without them, and this wasnt even like a gamestop or best buy who i guarantee had longer lines and more console, i went back this morning to buy another controller and the clerk said they only had 2 left
1OddWorld  +   237d ago
I looked at GameStop and Walmart before going to BestBuy to grab my pre-order. Was curious how many people would be inline and seen similar numbers at BestBuy and Walmart about 70 total at each, but GameStop was well over 100+ and if I had to guess maybe 150 or so.
Sarcasm  +   236d ago
The best buy I picked up from had about 100 people picking up their preorder and sold some walk ins, but turned away about 200 people.
Viking_Socrates  +   237d ago
Really nice, hoping to see the official numbers.
NavydAd  +   237d ago
lets see how many will be sending them back
Bathyj  +   237d ago

Angels3785  +   237d ago | Well said
Well lets see...that'll be .4%.....you're digging your own grave.every electronic has hardware failure rates. The difference is you'll cling to anything you can get to try and make playstation look bad. Pathetic.

AndrewLB  +   237d ago
That 0.4% number is complete BS. Sony has no way to know how many PS4's have the problem until consumers contact them with the warranty claim. M$ tried to do a similar thing with the 360 and it really bit them in the a$$.
1OddWorld  +   237d ago
Angels3785 - Perfect reply to an obvious Troll.

I give you a bubble for intellect.
DragonKnight  +   236d ago
@AndrewLB: That .4% number is an estimate. Sony can't post hard facts on the first day so the fact that you're arguing about it is as lame as your attempt to claim that the number could be higher (and let's face it, you wouldn't be so gung ho on this if you were claiming the possibility of it being lower).

Perhaps though you didn't consider the fact that these PS4's are connected online and Sony can determine which consoles are malfunctioning that way. I have no idea if that's true or not, but neither do you.
punisher99  +   237d ago

Not nearly as many 360s that had to be sent back thats for sure.
GiggMan  +   237d ago
Count those replacement sells also. Just like the 360 did lol.
T2  +   236d ago
Haha are you serious ? Any one that comes back will be instantly snatched up
OrangePowerz  +   237d ago
So they expect around 1 million sold and 6 people complain about a red light and the internet and Xbox community is up in arms that the console is fundamentally broken?
Riderz1337  +   237d ago
Do you even need to have the product purchased on Amazon to write a review? They could just be trolls...
Enemy  +   237d ago
There were like 100 reviews before the PS4 even came out, so nope.
OrangePowerz  +   237d ago
I don`t read Amazon reviews especially since the internet works the following way.

Everything works fine = Don`t write anything
Something doesn`t work = write 200 pages about it and make 20 videos.

The amount of people complaining is very low. If you look at problems that happen for many people you wouldn`t be able to surf the net without seeing people with complains like the SimCity launch or the Diablo 3 launch.

There are certainly some consoles with issues but it doesn`t appear widespread at all. I know for a fact that there is no general hardware issue or general overheating issue if you treat the console normally.
BG11579  +   237d ago
@Enemy,"There were like 100 reviews before the PS4 even came out, so nope." out of more than 4000 delivered from the Tacobell...
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   236d ago
Well I don't know exactly how Amazon reviews work and I'm sure some people are having problems, but I just readed through many of Amazon customer reviews and I believe more than half of those 1 out of 5 stars reviews are just bullcrap... There is one guy who just said PS4 had burned his house down, killed his cat named Master Chief and that the fire department is reporting many cases like that on launch day... I guess this show how reliable Amazon reviews really are.

Anyway, even if we were to consider each of the almost 300 1/5 reviews on Amazon as a true indicative of a faulty unity that needs to be replaced, we would still need to consider Amazon alone sold way more than 100k PS4. That means it would still be around 0.3% fail rate if all those complains were true (which they obviously aren't) and Amazon had sold nothing more than 100k (which they have). So there's nothing to worry about more than any early adopter buying any piece of electronic should worry.
iiwii  +   237d ago
They are the vocal minority. And yes, it does appear a few people have had some issues, and I tend to believe that it does have something to do with the day one patch, but these are the things that happen with launch systems. Sony will get it worked out.

I wonder if those same people will be as concerned over the XBox when we have to go through these stories again next week?
Ketzicorn  +   237d ago
Yeah people are not understanding that even if 500+ consoles of the 500,000+ that have serious problems(which I haven't seen near that many reports,and you have to account for false reports) that the percentage is still around .1% of all the consoles in peoples hands and while it always sucks to get a faulty unit it's the risk of buying electronics but yet even with these low numbers people are acting like the world is burning.
T2  +   236d ago
Ya the million others are busy happily playing games ... The other reviews are 2 broken consoles and greenpowerz , xboxfun and their multiple email accts
Mr_Writer85  +   236d ago
It's the risk of buying day one electronics ;)

If there is problem by the time PS4 version 2 is out Sony would of looked at any problems with the current system and engineered solutions to those problems.

Buying the first version is always a risk but I for one don't want to NOT take that risk!

Unreal01  +   237d ago
Haha, your picture cracks me up.
GamersRulz  +   237d ago
one million just in NA region?

That's impressive if accurate. I expect even bigger sales in EU and rest of the world.

PS4 might overtake the WiiU in one month. lol
Clarence  +   237d ago
This is big for Sony. The numbers are going to be huge when it's all said done. There's still Europe and Asia.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   236d ago
South America too (we get they the same day as Europe). Although price here is crap all around (as was much discussed early on), you can be sure people will still buy as many as they put out here.
MadMax  +   237d ago

Rageanitus  +   237d ago
I'm excited for PS4 (getting mine shipped to me around start of DEC).

But Honestly after looking at KNACK and playing a bit of it I am a bit dissapointed. I got the MYEH feeling feeling.

Lets hope Killzone lives up to its hype.

The other games can be found on PC and older gen consoles. so it was really those games IMO.
thekhurg  +   237d ago
Killzone is very fun if you're a fan of fps. The multiplayer is strong.
C-H-E-F  +   237d ago
Killzone really had me going, I have yet to play bf4 yet because of Killzone. I hope that says alot :D!!
Sarcasm  +   236d ago
Killzone is the title to get, the graphics are amazing. The sp is the best in the series. It's not perfect and the story can fall flat a little here and there, but overall worth it. The mp is pretty fun too.
Themba76  +   233d ago
well i have KZSF, BF4, AC4, Resogun, NFSRivals, Warframe, DC Universe Online, and Knack. Knack is the game I played the most so far (8 hours straight) I don't see the problem here.

C-H-E-F  +   237d ago
Yeah, I was pissed Knack was sold out everywhere and Battlefield 3 (tried to get it from Target buy 2 get 1) luckily a friend of mine worked at Target and held the battlefield 4 for me. Knack is really just gone every, my collection is currently bf4, killzone, nfs rivals and nba 2k14. If anyone wants to game on PM me :D. I love the what i'm seeing in these stores tho. Also around 40 people showed up at the best buy where I pre-ordered my ps4 (they didn't pre-order) and they all were about to get one. I was so shocked!! welp that's all folks :D Oh and I haven't turned my ps4 off yet, and it's still cool like a fan...(get it huh huh?)

This is what you get when the console cycle has gone on for far too long. People are so burned out on the PS3 and 360 and are ready for new consoles.
