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.

majiebeast964d 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.

LOL_WUT964d ago (Edited 964d ago )

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!

KUV1977964d ago

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 why964d ago (Edited 964d 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.

shivvy24964d ago

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

davekaos964d 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

Freedomland964d ago

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

Christmas is not even here yet

NatureOfLogic964d ago (Edited 964d ago )

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

Flawless victory for Sony. 6 million easily by March.

nukeitall964d ago

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

Demand outstrips supply right now for everyone.

johndoe11211964d 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.

SolidStoner964d 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

Flutterby964d 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.

mikeslemonade963d 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.

wooferine963d ago

@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 owned963d ago

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

b163o1963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

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

cleft5963d ago

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

karl963d ago

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

UltimateMaster963d 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.

pyramidshead963d ago

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

S2Killinit963d ago (Edited 963d 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...

Good heavens this has to be the fastest selling console in gaming history :o

It doesn't have to be, it is the fastest selling console in history.

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

GirlOnFire963d ago

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

Crystallis963d ago

add another million to that number when its released in Japan. so you looking at close to 3.5 million in feb.

Christopher963d ago

I'm not sure they will do 1m in Japan at release. Maybe half that. Consoles in general have been a diminishing market in Japan with handheld devices taking over.

We'll see, though.

Sevir963d ago

I doubt it'll sell a million that fast in Japan, the Vita launched in Japan and couldn't even break a million in the first month. In fact, it sold 300k units in week one and dropped to less than 10 thousand units the following week. The 3DS didn't sell well till the price dropped over there.

It'll have a big opening, and then drop.

Tetsujin963d ago

And I'm a part of that 2.1 million.

Bathyj963d ago

2 million in 2 weeks?

So 52 million in the first year?

UncleGermrod963d ago

is this where i line up to blow them? seems like it.

We are the World Record Breakers .

triforce79963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Well it's to be expected with the way Sony hyped the ps4 up,when in relaity I'm reading lots of articles/reviews where people sold the ps4 and got a wiiu on Amazon UK and say wiiu is more impressive go read them that's the reality ?? sales mean jack it's quality and as critics say wiiu is the nextgen console to own at the moment because it has the most impressive games and features that work.......

Knack stand alone is at 99 in sales charts on Amazon UK,Mario 3D World is at 17 work it out and 3D world has been at 17/18/19 in the sales charts for the last week and a half,Knack was at like 169 last week,so stand alone versions in Uk it looks like 3D world is in much higher demand......

2.1 million ps4's sold i'll say after around 3 million are sold it will drop off considerably,plus wiiu sits at around 4.1 million so still a while to go yet Sony.......

And it hasn't even released in Japan. I'm sure the Japanese will be lapping it up after how well it went down everywhere else.
