Took it extra month to do Wii numbers. That's quite impressive. Destiny sure helped I bet. Congrats to Sony.

Well said. I believe they have UK firmly locked as PS territory this gen.

Playstation Now is the fastest selling game streaming service of all time.

Great figures show that Sony's investment in making a gamer-centric system paid off. To be honest I'm kinda surprsised it has done nearly Wii like numbers because the Wii was a phenomenon that was featured on just about every regular news and breakfast programme in the UK. So it demonstrates the PS4's success comes from a grass roots level.

PlayStation UK boss Jim Ryan has previously said that Sony would have sold a lot more in the launch window if not for stock shortages.

I hope they build on their early success wisely!

nobody thought the Wii numbers would be repeated, PS4 is going close but with core gamers instead of casuals.

"But a very significant proportion are people we have never seen on our network before. And from their behaviour and the types of games they are playing, it’s fairly clear that a big chunk of those have come across from Xbox, which is tremendous to see. And there’s a chunk that look like they’re brand new to gaming. And they’ve picked PS4 as their first serious gaming device."

this is great news because having one dominant platform with a huge install base will encourage investment on games because the cost to develop on one platform will be low(especially on the dev friendly PS4), we have already seen this with the large number of announced Japanese games for the PS4.

Well done Sony. . .they've made decisive strides in taking back the only 2 regions it was being outsold in. . Doesn't bode well for the competition

The 2 places MS dominated last generation were the US and the UK. So MS will not be happy they are losing there main EU territory to Sony.

In comparison the wii also launched at $249 us $150 usd less than the PS4 which plays a major factor in a consumer purchase for a home console, especially when price justification at that time when the PS3 was taking so much heat with it's price point which further helped the numbers of its competitors.

PS4 is 2nd coming of video games Jesus Christ.

Was at the midnight launch. I swear it looked like as if gamestop was giving the PS4 destiny bundles away for free. It had to be about 2:1 picking up the bundle instead of just the game itself.

Gamer19821471d ago

That white console 0_o dreamy...

MasterCornholio1471d ago

In a bundle like that Destiny is a pretty big system seller. Plus its a Bungie game and those games tend to sell very well.
