Sony’s next-generation console, PlayStation 4 went on sale in North America on November 15th. During the first 24 hours, the company managed to sell over a million units of the PlayStation 4, making it their largest console debut ever. Later the console launched in several European and Latin American countries, making it available in total 32 countries worldwide. Earlier on Tuesday, Sony mentioned that it has sold over 2.1 million units in two weeks since the console released on November 15th.
According to Andrew House, President and Group CEO,
It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible line-up of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.
The tablet wars are becoming fierce. Microsoft announced earlier that PlayStations 4′s competitor, Xbox One sales crossed one million in first 24 hours after it launched on November 22nd, calling it the biggest launch in Xbox history. There’s another interesting fact here: Xbox one went on sale in multiple countries at launch compared to PlayStation 4, which launched only in North America on November 15th.
But, we can’t really name winner here, just say that it’s going to be a competitive year for the consoles.
