Yoshida: PS4 has sold through over 1 million units within 24 hours of the launch in North America
Congratulations Sony PlayStation!!!!!
wow good numbers! Dare I say it... shipped or sold?
Glad to say I contributed to that number. This gen is going to be awesome.
'sold' as in 'sold'. got it?
Sold through means sold to consumer.
The easiest way to answer that question is to go to your local retailer and see if there's any available.
Yeah, I'm sure they shipped at least twice that amount, if not more. 1 million sounds like a reasonable amount for them to have sold. With more on the horizon, no doubt.
Then come the rest of the world. that would be $400mil one day
You don't know the meaning of the word "sold"? Or maybe it's your fanboism blinding you as always? Why not throw a couple of "Dat _______" phrases you like to troll with so much? maybe you're out of material already? Hmmmm ..
Glorious. Such a powerful and quality console. Sony deserves good sales because they made a proper console for core gamers.
@ studio What's with the personal attacks? I can't even ask a serious question without getting attacked by you? Dat fanboy mad
Dat second account. Not fooling anyone.
The only reason it isn't more and a lot more by the look of things is that Sony can't build them quick enough. PS4s are going to be hard to find this christmas.
its gonna beat wii u sales with the japanese launch
I'm pretty sure it's sold since they're sold out everywhere and will most likely continue to be sold out throughout the holidays.
WOW 1,000,000+ console sold in just 24 hours ?! and only in NA ?! @_@ when ps4 launch in the rest of the world the world wide numbers will be scary
The difference between 'numbers sold' and 'numbers shipped' are completely different. 'Numbers sold' are those that have been purchased by customers, whereas 'numbers shipped' are those purchased by retailers and are sitting in a warehouse... waiting to be 'sold' to consumers. Let's just assume that the 1 million are 'numbers sold.'
Even if they are shipped, there isn't any stock lying on the shelves. There are already news of stocks sold out across the country and people shopping for ps4 being returned so they are sold any way.
hahahahaha Shipped or sold? Seriously? That doesnt even come into the equation purely because we know all these consoles are sold out until 2014.
Some dares to guess how many in PAL territories day one? I can't wait!!
Playstation 4 - 24hr - over 1 million console sold PS2 took 3 days to ship 1 million units, Wii U - 1 week(168hr) - 400 000 console sold Wii - 8 days(192hr) - 600 000 console sold Playstation 3 - 2 months - 1 million console sold Xbox 360 - 2 weeks - 326,000 console sold It should Pass the Wii U within a few weeks (1.75m NA) 1.39M sold through.
They will sell as much as they can produce......
Congrats to SONY they deserve it the goal of 5 million by years end looks like its going to be demolished! Good for SONY!
They sold out of preorders, so right now, shipped is the same as sold.
PS2 times are definitely back. Now keep good games coming Sony
@Ezz2013 + bubble for interesting
are you saying you believe none of these systems were sold and are just sitting on store shelves? i was at my brothers Gamestop yesterday and they kept telling people they didnt have any extra PS4 to sell, and only had the ones for people who reserved them. these are sell through to customers just deal with the fact that the launch was a success just like X1 will be.
Sell through = sold to consumer Sell in = shipped. Impressive numbers even if it was the latter.
Well deserved. Without a shadow of doubt what so ever.
wow! good job sony.
it's safe to say sold, in this case.
"sold-through" = Sold by retailers, as in these are in the hands of consumers. Sold in = to retailers. Btw, Walmart is supposedly getting their next shipment of PS4s on november 22nd! LOL, direct competition with the X1 launch.
and i was one of the buyer.
Sold. Do you even know what sell-through means?
@BBBirdistheWord Well, seeing as I can't even find the damn console, "Shipped" and "Sold" are pretty much the same thing.
@Ezz2013 I'm thinking they're gonna hit that 5 million mark a lot sooner than they were predicting.
Dat trolling attempt. TTTrollistheWord
It would have to be "sold" since they are out of stock everywhere.
does that mean this is first launch that havent been sold out on launch?
Wow, I think he was kidding guys. This is very good news for Sony and Playstation fans. The 3rd party developers will take notice of these numbers and the Playstation will continue to get great games. This is also good news for Microsoft because it means that there is still a big console market and I am sure that they will have very good numbers next week.
I can almost guarentee that a lot more than 1 million were shipped. This is 100% sold in the hands of the consumer figures.
you're getting "attacked" because this is a tired question by now. No company in the world can track the amount of unit sold to customers, EVER!! every single company that post "sales numbers" posts the amount shipped.
1 million sold. It's sold out everywhere.
I assume it would be sold because all the shipped consoles are sold out.... @ChrisW Still regardless, if you have a high shipped number its because the demand for it is also high.
Once again sold vs shipped doesn't matter to Sony. It only matters to fans wanting to use it as fodder. Once Sony ships units out of their distributor they already got their bank. They don't sell product on consignment. You have to pay Sony to have them ship them to you. I highly doubt vendors will be able to keep the PS4 on the store shelves or online dealers for the 1st few to several months. So again shipped = sold by the manufacturer or publisher. They sell it to vendors under MSRP and then the vendor (retail or online) sell it for full MSRP to make what money they can. Business 101
Sold Through = Sold to Customer, not retailers.... Why dont people realize this?
@Dmarc, Yes... I accidently omitted an important word; "sold out." It's only when something is not sold out that there is a great difference between 'shipped' and 'sold.'
Just to make a comparison, how many WiiU consoles were sold on the first day? Also a million? I'm not sure myself, but I wanted to gauge if this is good or a good start that could go either way.
Did you even read the quote, it stated sold as in SOLD. What other definition do you need? The mind baffles!
Wow, BBB.... the fanboys really jumped all over you. I saw absolutely nothing negative whatsoever about your comment. "shipped or sold?" Legitimate questions, seeing as how reports always fail to specify. You didn't attack, you qualified it with "dare I say it...", and you said "Wow good numbers!" You people are insane! Can't even take a compliment. They are indeed great numbers, and it's awesome for Sony and gamers. How this thread turned so negative so quickly is unbelievable. It's as if people were so threatened by what might have been a valid point that they felt some strange urge to shut you down and insult you. A simple clarification would have been much less childish. I can proudly say my PS4 is one of those 1mil.
@ malokevi Yeah. agreed. Those fanboys have some serious issues. Dat ps4 neurosis.
Why are you getting Disagrees? O_o
*Cough* Angry Xbox Fans *Cough*
do you really have to ask ?
For comparison's sake, in case no one knew: The PS4 sold over 1 million units within 24 hours in the US alone (obviously). The PS3 reached 1 million units SHIPPED in the US nearly two whole months after launch in 2006. Granted, they were allegedly plagued with delays despite everyone saying it was easy to find in stores, but it's still a remarkable difference. I hope they can keep up with demand.
The world isn't perfect , whenever you go you will see some idiots living a conspiracy life .
18/261 disagrees! Of course some random fanboys are going to come through and disagree. All things considered, the ratio is NOTHING! I came into this article expecting all positivity, but instead playstation fans have made a point of jumping all over the negativity. How hard would it be to ignore those 18 disagrees? Is it necessary to dwell on negativity? Why must you all continue to do this?!?!?!?!?!?!?
damn that's amazing!!
And soon we will see if Microsoft's claims of selling just as many consoles will hold true. But it's great to see Sony bounce back. When you're about the gamers, gamers will buy the product.
Well Xbox One is launching simultaneously in 13 countries which will maybe (not even sure now seeing how well PS4 sold day 1 in the US) might give it a slight advantage in launch sales. One thing's for sure though, with european launch included I think we will see PS4 outselling the Xbox One 3:1 by the end of the month.
ms is going ship 1 million as well
I thinking it won't be that bad... 1.5:1 most likely... Maybe 2:1 Id love to see it equal but feel ps4 will hold a slight lead with price being the main factor
Microsoft has never exactly been honest with their figures, so I'd take their word with a grain of salt. For those inevitable disagrees, remember back in 2012, when they said they had the best selling console worldwide? mmmhmmm
congrats sony and hopefully ms will have a great launch too BBBirdistheWord shipped from ms or sony's end means sold. So for this Generation let's leave that argument behind. next gen is off to a great start, here is hoping both sony and ms can carry on the momentum and have great competition throughout next gen to deliver us the gamers great content
I should hope MS has a better launch, they're going out in 13 countries vs. the PS4's one, if MS can't even match the PS4 like that then it'd be seriously troubling. Especially since the Ps4 will launch in 30 or so countries on the 29th.
the faster the base install gets bigger the better software support we'll get from 2nd and 3rd-parties
Which already is. Diablo Reaper and Kingdom undefire 2 is confirmed to be comming to the PS4 only and not others. Yes there will be even more soon with the way the PS4 is selling.
