Congratulations Sony PlayStation!!!!!

BBBirdistheWord1856d ago

wow good numbers!

Dare I say it... shipped or sold?

Chug1856d ago

Glad to say I contributed to that number. This gen is going to be awesome.

FlunkinMonkey1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

'sold' as in 'sold'. got it?

majiebeast1856d ago

Sold through means sold to consumer.

Brugal1856d ago

The easiest way to answer that question is to go to your local retailer and see if there's any available.

TopDudeMan1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

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.

shoddy1856d ago

Then come the rest of the world.

that would be $400mil one day

Studio-YaMi1856d ago

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 ..

Hatsune-Miku1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

Glorious. Such a powerful and quality console. Sony deserves good sales because they made a proper console for core gamers.

BBBirdistheWord1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

@ studio

What's with the personal attacks?

I can't even ask a serious question without getting attacked by you?

Dat fanboy mad

FlunkinMonkey1856d ago

Dat second account.

Not fooling anyone.

amiga-man1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

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.

vishmarx1856d ago

its gonna beat wii u sales with the japanese launch

Lionsguard1856d ago

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.

Ezz20131856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

1,000,000+ console sold in just 24 hours ?! and only in NA ?! @[email protected]

when ps4 launch in the rest of the world
the world wide numbers will be scary

ChrisW1856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

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.'

AsimLeonheart1856d ago

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.

Gamer19821856d ago

hahahahaha Shipped or sold? Seriously? That doesnt even come into the equation purely because we know all these consoles are sold out until 2014.

MazzingerZ1856d ago

Some dares to guess how many in PAL territories day one?

I can't wait!!

Ezz20131856d ago

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.

NewAgeisHere1856d ago

They will sell as much as they can produce......

RyuCloudStrife1856d ago

Congrats to SONY they deserve it the goal of 5 million by years end looks like its going to be demolished! Good for SONY!

boneso821856d ago

They sold out of preorders, so right now, shipped is the same as sold.

abzdine1856d ago

PS2 times are definitely back.
Now keep good games coming Sony

NewMonday1856d ago


+ bubble for interesting

Aceman181856d ago

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.

gaffyh1856d ago

Sell through = sold to consumer
Sell in = shipped.

Impressive numbers even if it was the latter.

pyramidshead1856d ago

Well deserved. Without a shadow of doubt what so ever.

nix1856d ago

it's safe to say sold, in this case.

FamilyGuy1856d ago

"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.

PeaSFor1856d ago

and i was one of the buyer.

President1856d ago

Sold. Do you even know what sell-through means?

SnotyTheRocket1856d ago

@BBBirdistheWord Well, seeing as I can't even find the damn console, "Shipped" and "Sold" are pretty much the same thing.

johndoe112111855d ago


I'm thinking they're gonna hit that 5 million mark a lot sooner than they were predicting.

solidjun51855d ago

Dat trolling attempt. TTTrollistheWord

iiwii1855d ago

It would have to be "sold" since they are out of stock everywhere.

Magicite1855d ago

does that mean this is first launch that havent been sold out on launch?

ScorpianusNoir1855d ago

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.

DialgaMarine1855d ago

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.

UltimateMaster1855d ago

1 million sold.
It's sold out everywhere.

Dee_911855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

I assume it would be sold because all the shipped consoles are sold out....

Still regardless, if you have a high shipped number its because the demand for it is also high.

Boody-Bandit1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

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

Panthers1855d ago

Sold Through = Sold to Customer, not retailers....

Why dont people realize this?

ChrisW1855d ago


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.'

pixelsword1855d ago

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.

grimmweisse1855d ago

Did you even read the quote, it stated sold as in SOLD. What other definition do you need?

The mind baffles!

malokevi1855d ago

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.

BBBirdistheWord1855d ago

@ malokevi

Yeah. agreed.

Those fanboys have some serious issues.
Dat ps4 neurosis.

do you really have to ask ?

Tony-A1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

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.

Ultimax1855d ago

The world isn't perfect , whenever you go you will see some idiots living a conspiracy life .

malokevi1855d ago

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?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Jughead34161856d ago (Edited 1856d ago )

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.

Triella1856d ago

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.

Masterchief_KOK1856d ago

ms is going ship 1 million as well

n4rc1856d ago

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

DialgaMarine1855d ago

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

showtimefolks1856d ago

congrats sony and hopefully ms will have a great launch too


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

Prophet-Gamer1855d ago

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.

black0o1856d ago

the faster the base install gets bigger the better software support we'll get from 2nd and 3rd-parties

NateCole1856d ago

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.
