PS4 is Selling so Much Faster than PS3, PS2 and PS1 that it’s Not Even a Competition

With 5.3 million sold through to customers, it’s a given by now that the PS4 is selling very fast, faster than its predecessors, but how much faster? Quite a lot. (PS2, PS3, PS4)

Tony-A  +   215d ago | Well said
As soon as I saw the milestone it had reached, I knew this wasn't gonna be just some mild success for Sony...

Over 5 million units? Sold THROUGH? The PS4 hasn't even been available in both NA and EU for THREE MONTHS. Less than three months and it hasn't even launched in its home country?

Those figures are unfathomable. It managed to reach the sales figures of Nintendo's newest console from 2012 in under 90 days.

Think about that.

On another note, every generation has had at least one console reach the 100 Mil Club since the 5th generation (PSOne, PS2, Wii). I think it's safe to say that one of these consoles will do the same this generation. The question is... how fast? The PS2 broke records when it became the fastest to reach that figure after close to 6 years on the market. With the PS4 selling faster than Sony's - and the industry's - most successful console in history, it's making for a really entertaining story.

I haven't even bought my PS4 yet! Waiting for inFamous: SS but, to be honest... I might not be able to wait another whole month.

doesn't matter if there is no competition.
PS1 and PS2 had no competition but still managed to be 2 of the best consoles ever made.

it's actually a good thing that devs focus their strengths and ressources on the most powerful console.

The only thing holding back the PS4 is Sony simply not being able to make them fast enough,

if they continue selling at this rate 3rd party games will have no choice but to focus efforts on the PS4 and it will only make it increasingly difficult and certainly a lot more expensive for M$ to pay for timed exclusivity

M$ could not have messed things up more for xone if they had sat down and planned it.

Great news for sony and the PS4. Lets all think positive. We have heard how the wii-u was selling faster than the wii in its initially launch and how the xb1 was selling faster than 360 when it launched.

but this is sony so there is potential for it to sustain that launch momentum. Quick out of the gate is one thing but it has to have lasting power to stay in the lead and so far its looking that way.

on a side note, I would encourage everyone who eventually gets their PS4 to consider picking up a secondary system like a wii-u or xb1. its good to play the field especially when there are games on both that you wont be able to play on PS4 and vice versa. Next gen FTW.

Xsilver and Abizzel - thank you for putting me on to that video. That was funny as all hell.

*Back on topic - Amazing to see the numbers of the launch consoles. It goes to show I wasn't the only dumbass waiting in line for the PS1 and 2. PS3 and it was too expensive so I didn't have any problems going to the store and buying one. and PS4 I saw the writing on the wall when they debuted it, I went right to Amazon and pre-ordered it. Hell of a product Sony - now just redesign the rubbers on the DS4's thumbsticks.
Giul_Xainx  +   214d ago
I'm going to make a bet for bragging rights that PS4 will hit 10 million units by the end of march.
UltraNova  +   214d ago
And whats even more interesting is the fact that nearly all those sales are authentic.

Let me explain. Of the 10 million initial/launch xbox 360's sold how many of those where an one time buy and not a replacement for bricked units (RROD @ 40-50% rate)?

Even the PS3 had 8-10% failure rate during launch!

Looks like a truly successful console launch this time around!

Except thats not true. I just tested COD and more people are playing on X1 then PS4. So right there, your wrong. And people do own the system. MS hasnt given any new numbers but we can guess its sold in the 4 millions now. So...... You could replace X1 with the PS4 in the title of this article and it would still be true. The fact is, both systems are massively successful so far. Its fanboys like you that distort the facts.

I have both consoles (PS4 & X1) and GHOST for both. I have played on both consoles in the same day several times over and usually there are more people playing GHOST on the PS4 than X1. Only once did I see a higher number of X1 players and it was only by a couple thousand.

I need to back to Cali. In & Out Burger is the best. There's nothing like it in New York. But if I go to Cali, I'll miss the pizza.
On topic,I think more people own PS4s than Xbox ones but more importantly there may be more people that own both consoles than those who only own the Xbox One.
If that is true,MIT may explain why more copies of multiplats are sold for the PS4 besides the fact that there have been more PS4s sold.

I also think that if MS struck a deal with all publishers to sell all there games at a maxi um of $50, they could probably push quite a few more consoles.

Do you idiots event think about what your saying? Take the title of this artilce "ps4 is selling so much faster than ps3 ps2 and ps1 that its not even a competition#selcomment" and replace PS4 with Xbox 1 and it would still be true. The fact is both systems are massively successful. MS hasnt given any new numbers but we can bet that its in the 4 millions now. The fact that its in only half of the territories of the PS4, $100 more, released 2 weeks later and the shit they went through. Thats a massive success. The fact is, and i know you fanboys hate facts, both systems are massive success SO FAR. This is a long game. The X1 is nothing like the Wii U. It took the X1 2 months to sell what the Wii U sold in close to a year. So no, it isnt the same and just because you say it that way, doesnt make it true.
ShwankyShpanky  +   215d ago
Since MS announced 3mil sold at the end of 2013, you're suggesting they sold 1mil in a month and a half? Even though Jan NPD suggests they only moved about 150k in the US? Mm-kay.

"half the territories"

Yet all the major Xbox markets are represented.

"released 2 weeks later"

Actually, it was only one week later, and that was only in North America. Rest of the world got PS4 one week after the Xbox.

I was at Gamestop over the weekend and within 15mins of the store opening, there had already been more than 20 people coming in asking for the PS4 (they didn't and haven't had any at this store for quite sometime, I asked) To their credit, the sales associate asked them if they wanted a Xbox One.. should've seen the reactions on the faces of these people, would have curdled milk.

I was able to spot 2 in WalMart last Sunday...but it was about 2 a.m. (couldn't sleep, decided to get groceries). However, and you might not believe it, but THOSE sold before they could make it to the shelves. The guy was literally carrying them out of the warehouse, in his cart, and a guy walked up and bought them BOTH!!! Sure he made a little cash on Ebay. Either that, or he is really generous.

Maybe it didn't have online support and no good FPSs, but it definitely had great games.

The difference is that Wii sold as a FAD for 3 years.After the Fad over,the sales went down and Nintendo abandoned the machine with only 5 years in the market.

Sony on the other hand,support their consoles for 10+ years(look at PS3,PS2,PS1).The PS4 can reach the PS2 levels for sure.
theizzzeee  +   215d ago
Not really. Before that time folks had to choose between graphics and an innovative way to play. Then PS3 and XBOX 360 added motion control and people no longer had to choose. Wii sales decreased and the PS3 and XBOX 360 sales increased.

@Kwiet: Heh... so true. I wasn't too impressed with either machine's launch lineup, but I got a midnight launch PS4 just for the novelty factor. I knew I'd be getting one eventually, and I've never bought a day 1 console, and I'm interested to see how the OS evolves (also interested to see how long my "launch day" console lasts). And I happily just played the freebies until early December when my brother insisted on buying me KZ:SF because he thought it was ridiculous that I bought a new system without buying a game to go with it (I initially had KZ:SF preordered with the console, but cash was tight in November).
DigitalRaptor  +   215d ago
@ KwietStorm

Even if that were true, there's no way I'd risk the scenario of not having one due to shortages, when inFamous: Second Son comes out next month. Like ShwankyShpanky said, it's nice to have it, to see it grow and be along for the ride.

And still, there's been plenty of great things to play, and it's only due to get better.

The system is doing great and it's not even out in all it's strongest regions just yet. It's going to be the highest selling 8th ten console come the Japan release, and once Sony's own AAA titles start really dropping within the next year, it's only going to snowball from there. Not to mention if multi plats remain better on the system, then it will be people's choice for multi plats as well. Just make sure this train keeps roaring, Sony. It's nowhere near out of the woods just yet, but it's doing great so far.

It would be incredible if the ps4 outsold the ps1 and 2 making it the biggest selling console ever, and I think it will. I'm hoping the PS4 can reach 200 million units sold but we'll see.

200M seems irrational, it could hit 100M+.

People can't wait for quality products, simple, hence I went ps4, Xbox one can wait... And wait ;)

When Sony announced $400 dollars after Microsofts $500 all I could think of was PS1 vs Sega Saturn and that faithful E3. I knew this would happen.

Oh, I didn't say I don't love the KZ:SF multiplayer, I just question the claim that the online is "booming."

I think another 3-5 million PS4s are going to sell next week in Japan alone.
Abriael  +   215d ago
I'd say that's a bit overly optimistic. Japan isn't a BIG country. There are only 127 million people in the nation. I'd say 1-1.5 million is more realistic for first week, and it'd be already enormous.

Damn Congrats SONY not surprised though bc the PS4 is a Masterpiece of a console! Kinda off topic but SONY what's up with the PS4 camera?? I haven't seen 1 in months and i know a few people looking for one lol

I dont think that the console itself will break PS2s records but it will sell well.

The initial sales push is just because more people are aware of the start of the 8th generation because everyone is overhyping it. Some people are still buying 7th gen consoles either because they are "catching up" or casuals.

Im not in a hurry though. Still waiting for the sales rush to slow down so Sony can bring PS4s to the market that arent as rushed. (every playstation console gen has suffered from launch day model problems, they might not break in a month or a year but once they do, it will be a nasty timing)
