Those 1 million pre-orders sure are real. We’ve been notified via a press release that the PS4 has shipped 1 million units in North America on Day 1. This is a monumental amount of sales and something not many people were expecting after what happened with the PS3.
“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 console was released on November 15th in the US. We will keep you updated once we hear more on this.
