Sony to Sell 5 Million PlayStation 4 Units by April 1st

The sales predictions at Sony enter into the region of some pretty big figures. Already, the Japanese giant has announced that by the end of 2013 it will have sold at least 5 million units of its PlayStation 4. What that means in actual terms is that between the PS4 launch which is due in November of this year and April 1st, it will sell at least a million units on a monthly basis. This is a huge goal alright. 

The launch ceremony is to occur in North America. This fact regarding sales figures was announced at the momentous occasion of its Tokyo Game Show keynote address. 

When you compare this with Microsoft’s record the difference becomes obvious. It took Bill Gates’ behemoth a full 365 days to make the shipments of 5 million units of its Xbox 360

Meanwhile, Sony’s PS3 hit the 4.28 million sales figure by the end of its first quarter six years ago. And that was about half a year after its release. The PS4 won’t be accessible to the Japanese before the end of April, 2014 though. 

While, seeing the trends of the past, Sony expects even bigger sales figures this time around, this is not inevitable. Rather it is an expectation that may be exceeded or dashed to the ground by slow sales. We’ll just have to wait and see.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
