I bet Europe clears a million consoles as well. With 2014 looking mind blowing good in exclusives and 3rd party content first. They are setting themselves up for much success.

Europe will most definitely sell more than 1mill, it's Sony's strongest region. Really hoping the failure rate stays away from EU though, don't want to get my console to have to send it off again, that would kill me.

europe wil lsale way more than a mil N.america did
cause europe is sony base

neocores1484d ago

I think they will sell over 1mil in 12hrs

They pulled another hype move that was false. The New York event was the same.

Midnight in Toronto is 1:30AM here, and 1:00AM in the rest of Atlantic Canada. Thousands of PS4's were already sold when:
"Last Thursday night, Sony Computer Entertainment Canada VP and GM Steve Turvey was in Toronto to officially sell the first PlayStation 4 in Canada."

People were already home with theirs and playing when this console was sold.

edit: But yeah, Toronto is dope.

No. I'm in Vancouver, and I GOT THE FIRST PS4 in Canada ;)

Varmint1484d ago

@BattleTorn I think you've got your time zones mixed up, man! At 9pm in Vancouver it was already midnight in Toronto!

KingofGambling1484d ago

is that from a movie poster or something?

jhoward5851484d ago

Wow, even with Sony's mediocre launch titles the ps4 still manage to sale like hot cakes.

sincitysir11484d ago

I don't know whether to slap u or hug u. U say something sweet and kind while still saying something opinionated

jhoward5851484d ago

Thank you I keep it real...

I like to speak my mind, that's me. (Smile)

He's trolling in his/her best possible way.

PeaSFor1484d ago

the console itself is a "system seller", its a breath of fresh air for gamers.

noctis_lumia1484d ago (Edited 1484d ago )

uncharted
god of war
gran turismo
mgs4

Mediocre is all in personal opinion. Most everyone who has purchased a ps4 are enjoying their games. Reviewers hasnt hasnt swayed them from the games. Sure Cod is the top seller. But first party software is doing quite well both digitally. I certainly dont think the launch games are mediorce

jhoward5851484d ago (Edited 1484d ago )

PS4's launch titles were Ok....nothing jaw dropping game play wise. Now don't wrong, I'm not saying Ps4's launch titles weren't any good. I'm saying that I was expecting the ps4 to have better games at launch.

I'm pretty confidence Sony's 2nd wave of games are going to wow us. I can't wait.

@Jhoward95, cant argue there

PeaSFor1484d ago

Sevir1484d ago

Had to give this one a bridge, trolls love bridges

izumo_lee1484d ago

That's what they said about the PSone, PS2 & PS3. Guess we know how all these systems turned out eh?

PixelKnot1484d ago

I've seen you keep posting the same thing, if you're not going to say anything positive for the early success of the Na PS4 launch, then it's best you stick to posting in the Wii U section.
