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 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.
In the meantime the resell market for the Sony PS4 has started on eBay and Amazon . The $399.99 Sony PS4 console resells on eBay for over $500. People who pre-ordered the Sony PS4 are making a quick profit of over $200 by reselling their sealed PS4 consoles. This is a nice profit.
The offers on Amazon are much more aggressive. the lowest price right now is $799.99 for the PS4 Launch Edition. If you absolutely need to have a Sony PS4 now, eBay is the best place. You can also try yourself to find inventory. Today was a total bust, but maybe Monday has new inventory. Check out our How to Find a PS4 in Stock guide find out the best way to find a PS4.
