PS4 doubles Xbox One sales at launch

See also

While Microsoft stated that it set a record with a million units sold worldwide, there have been plenty of reports of Xbox One's still on shelves. The initial report for Sony is that it had sold one million units in the United States alone at launch. The system launched in Europe over the weekend, and in a PlayStation blog, Sony revealed the global sales. Europe, alone, outdid North America as it sold 1.1 million units, bringing the total worldwide to 2.1 million as of December 1st.

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 blog can be viewed here. What's even more astonishing is that the PS4 has yet to launch in its biggest market. Japan. The system will hit there in February. Sony has set its goal at 5 million units sold by the end this fiscal year. You have to wonder if the launch in Japan will get it really close.
