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.'

Boody-Bandit  +   282d 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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

Considering all (or most) of those numbers are from preorders since February, 1 million units sold on launch are very good numbers, but not outstanding. This is November and in this month consoles like the Wii, X360 and PS3 used to sell 2-3 million consoles. If the PS4 (or Xbox One) sell more then 3 million this month, then i would call them outstanding numbers.

tiffac008  +   283d ago
@lelo2play

I think its asking to much for the PS4 or any console to sell 3 million in its first month. There will be demand and supply issues to consider and I think a lot of people considered that 1 million pre-order to be a combination of NA + EU but this is only NA not counting the pre-orders in EU.
Eddie20101  +   282d ago
@lelo2play

Some people never think before they speak, 1 million is launch Day number as in one day of sales as in the 15th of November with nearly a month and a half before Christmas as in One continent. The PS4 will probably sell 3 Million this holiday when it launches in Europe that is if they have manufactured enough to do so, which they probably have.

The biggest launch day number ever, one of gaming biggest achievements and some people have nothing better to do than try to discredit it.

BTW some people DO have shares in Sony/MS/Nintendo. Also there's nothing wrong with backing a team, just so long as you don't start abusing the other teams. Do you back any sports teams? You know they're businesses, right? We buy their tickets/merchandise and celebrate wins - SAME!

lol I don't know why you have to be bitter, they made the PS4 how the gamers wanted it and in return, we give them our cash. Of course they do it for the money, but it's not as easy as you think. As long as we get what we want out of it, we're satisfied and we give them our thanks and our money. That's how it always works, we only buy electronics when it meets our demands so stop acting like they're always against the consumer.

There are only around 200 DOA reports on amazon and less than half of them are verified (meaning they actually bought one from amazon so they might not even have one). So the DOA consoles are vastly over-rated well under 1%.

1nsomniac  +   283d ago
BBBirdistheword & Redfirm are both correct in a sense.

The console itself is making a loss reportedly somewhere between $30-$50 so again reportedly 1 game purchase will put them in profit.

Also, although they're reporting a loss on each product sold you'll find this is marketing commercial talk based on marketing commercial figures. The truth is the internal actual real life financial cost is usually well below.

Seeing how everybody is buying at very least 1 game at launch, most people are buying more than 1 game as well. That's already millions of dollars profit, day 1!

They're losing around $30-40 for each console sold but that doesn't take software, accessories or PS+ sales into consideration, so they're definitely looking at a profit overall.
SoulSercher620  +   283d ago
They profit from things such as games sold, PSN, etc. So seeing that they ony lose out on $30-$50 per console isn't really that big a deal.

they are losing round 30 to 50 bucks per console sold. you have to take into account all the other costs beside the hardware too which playes a role

BUTTTTT if you keep in mind that ps+ is needed to play online and that no person buys a new console without a game. then YES, they are making profit :)

I highly doubt that since it's an AMD powered console. AMD doesn't charge much for hardware.
FlunkinMonkey  +   283d ago
Awesome.. Numbers are looking good and the ridiculous claims of defective consoles are actually a very small percentage.

To be fair it was expected that it would get blown out of proportion by the media and Xbox fans considering they have been getting savaged by the media and Sony fans for months on end (a fair amount of it justified in my view).

Don't think it helps the MS cause though as this backlash will only be served back to you next week upon Xone release.

Do you think EA and Respawn are now thinking that Tital Fall should have been multi plat. Thats potentially a million lost sales right there and its just after 24 hours after the launch of the PS4.
IHassounah  +   283d ago
Unfortunately the deal was made infront of a full room of government or something like that so they can't make the change o anything cause it's impossible to , expect Titanfall 2 to be on the PS4
Bathyj  +   283d ago
Don't worry, they were paid well. Probably the same amount that 2 or 3 million copies sold on ps4 would have got them.
majiebeast  +   283d ago
Respawn was already thinking that but EA sold it as a permanent exclsuive to microsoft without telling respawn.
Funantic1  +   283d ago
Not really. Titanfall will be on the Xbone, PC, and 360. There were over 80 million 360s sold just by themselves. EA and Respawn have no worries about Titanfall sales. Besides that in the beginning Respawn went to Sony and MS with ideas and about Titanfall having dedicated servers but only MS offered a solution.
Gamer1982  +   283d ago
EA dont care about Titanfall as MS will have give them a MASSIVE cheque for that to cover losses. The more PS4s sell the more they will have to pay no doubt.
Octo1  +   283d ago
The only game that makes me want to get an Xbone. Just like Gears of War made me want to get a 360. Ahh well. Will have to wait for the sequel to come out.

How much did the Wii sell on day one ? Just asking cause if it sold not that much then Sony just got a record done
Masterchief_KOK  +   283d ago
i believe 1 million
Triella  +   283d ago
Actually it was 600K the first WEEK for North AND South America. Which means Wii record is pulverized.

Think it was around 600k, so its a new record :)
IHassounah  +   283d ago
I just found out that the Wii was released approximately world wide on launch day , in Japan the console sold 300k units , in US it sold 700k units , in Europe it sold 400k units , looks like Sony didn't break the record but they could if they add the other other sales world wide
Triella  +   283d ago
@IHassouna

No no the Wii launched first in the Americas (USA, Canada, Mexico, Brasil, Peru, etc.) and almost a month later in Japan and other territories.

Yes sony have made a record in sales and it will only get better when they release in the rest of the world in 2 weeks :)

@bbbird

The previous record was the wii with 600k not even close to the ps4.

Gold Trophy unlocked - reach over 1 mil. units in 1st day in US

Platinum trophy - reach 30 mil. units in US
BG11579  +   283d ago
"reach 30 mil. units in US", is only a Gold trophy if you don't add a time limit.

Platinum trophy - reach over 155 mil. sold worldwide. Trophy name: "To overcome the legend."

Nice numbers. Ill get mine next year with an Uncharted bundle. Well done Sony. Lets hope there arent massive numbers of defective units. Noone wants that at this time of year.

Of course it "includes preorders" other than a few lucky people that got one om launch with out, THEY WERE ALL PREORDERED!
Pintheshadows  +   283d ago
What difference does that make? The consoles are still sold through. 1 million of them.
Mister_G  +   283d ago

Idba  +   283d ago
Just think of it, 1 million + sold and about 5000 people are having issues. 5000 = 0.5%!!

Wasn't the Vita TV released in Japan this week as well? It'll be interesting to gauge those numbers.
imt558  +   283d ago
Btw. PS4 beat the record of PS2 launch day in Japan which sold 980 000 units in 24 hours!
DrJones  +   283d ago
Consider that Japan has a much smaller population than the US. That means that 980.000 sold is greater sales in proportion.
DrJones  +   283d ago
1 million sales in 24 hours is still outstanding though.
