Sony PlayStation 4 sells 1 million in first 24 Hours

The Sony PlayStation 4 went on sale on Friday, November 24. Sony announced on Sunday that the highly anticipated launch of the new PS4 resulted in 1 million units sold through during the first 24 hours after it became available in the United States and Canada. This is much much better than for the Sony PS3. According to a 2007 Sony announcement it took the PS3 two month to reach two million in Japan and United States combined.

"The Sony PS4 was designed with an unwavering commitment to gamers, and we are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc. "Sales remain very strong in North America, and we expect continued enthusiasm as we launch the PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support."  

The Sony PS4 is really hard to find. This is actually a problem for Sony. They need to flood the market now before the Xbox One launches. If you cannot buy a PS4, some consumers will go and get a Xbox One instead.

Gamers can also broadcast their gameplay in real-time through Ustream or Twitch, and friends can comment on the streamed gameplay. The PS4's launch lineup includes highly anticipated games such as Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, NBA 2K14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts. The PS4 system also offers access to entertainment options through a curated portfolio of digital entertainment apps, including Sony's own Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited, as well as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, NBA Game Time and Hulu Plus, all available on PlayStation Store.

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.
