Andrew House writes: "In what is shaping up to be a historic year for gamers, I’m delighted to share an important new milestone with you. PS4′s North American debut on 15th November was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours. Now, with PS4′s global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold."

Amazing.

Well Done Sony, that's impressive figures.

majiebeast1354d ago

They could have easily done more if they had more supply. Ive seen them go on ebay in Germany for 620euro's or higher.

People were quick to point out that it got outsold on Black Friday by the competition but little did they know this console was pulling in the numbers in another region. 2.1 million as of Dec 1st how does that feel? ;)

Congrats to Sony!

At the launch-event in Berlin they could have easily sold 4 times as many as they had in stock. 1.200 consoles for 5.000 people (guestimates).

Why o why1354d ago (Edited 1354d ago )

Asda in the uk by me are saying they aren't getting new stock until january. They sold out pretty swiftly. Hopefully they'll get more in before that. Sony aren't meeting the initial demand. They must be both pissed and pleased

So they sold a million more than Xbone (even with low stock), and only just a few days ago launching in Europe? They haven't even launched in Asia yet.

Sony destroying the competition already.

i still dont have my console yet, waiting for the pre-christmas one

davekaos1354d ago

This is nothing short of phenomenal for sony. With the demand so high if sony had the supply I would guess that figure could easily be 4 million

It shows how hot the product is when stores such as CEX are buying the console for £400 which is £50 more than retail

VICTORY!!
Shaka laka boom boom!
Congrats to Sony fanboys and Sony.

Christmas is not even here yet

WOW! Looks like I picked a winner. Loving my PS4. PS2 vibes all over again.

Flawless victory for Sony. 6 million easily by March.

nukeitall1354d ago

If think both MS and Sony could have sold more if they had more supply.

Demand outstrips supply right now for everyone.

johndoe112111354d ago

You're right I think the biggest issue for sony right now is supply. I think this momentum is going to continue well into the first quarter of next year.

Congrats to sony! After everything they've been through with the ps3 and showing that they've learned from their mistakes, I think they deserve it.

@nuketail
Maybe you're right but based on the reports I've seen it's still very possible to walk into a lot of stores worldwide and pick up an xbox one off the shelf, the same cannot be said for the ps4.

SolidStoner1354d ago

Considering that Japan will get PS4 only in 22 feb 2014, aslo similar to many other countries... including mine.. so count me in later! +1 :D

Flutterby1354d ago

@nukeitall

You wish MS was sold out lol , I can 100% confirm there are still day one editions available world wide lol Xbone isn't doing as well as you would like to pretend, ps4 on the other hand is actually sold out.

mikeslemonade1354d ago

Based on the sample size in Berlin. 5,000 people in line with only 1,200 PS4s. So PS4 will sell around 7.5 million before they can actually meet the demand. Only then you can walk into the store at any given moment and buy a PS4.

@karl That $100 price difference is really having an impact on the Xbox One's sales. Sony read the target market better than Microsoft this generation and is following a very effective pricing strategy.

u got owned1354d ago

Great sales! Congrats to Sony, although Vita sold 2.1 units during that same time frame.

In my best Mortal Kombat voice "Finish him"...
Congrats Sony, started with PS1 and haven't looked back

cleft51354d ago

There it is, 2 to 1 for Sony versus Microsoft and this is only the start. Microsoft has to do something and soon.

karl1354d ago

Almost no dissagrees but my comment is mark as trollling and i loose another bubble? Weird

UltimateMaster1353d ago

Over 2 Million sold.
5 Million, can they make that many from now to march? It will sell but only if there's that many available.

That made me laugh a lot more than it should have.

pyramidshead1354d ago

Fantastic news indeed. And this is only the beginning :)

S2Killinit1354d ago (Edited 1354d ago )

this is a victory through sticking it out and not abandoning the principals that made gaming what it is today. this didn't happen overnight. people are just realizing that Playstation stayed true to gamers throughout last generation, and the generations before that. This was long time coming...

That's nothing short of amazing. Well played Sony.

GirlOnFire1354d ago

The fun doesn't stop there. Japan has yet to release PS4 also! If I was them I would be crying by now. ^~^

Crystallis1354d ago
