Jack Tretton has provided some comments in regards to the sales and stock of the PS4. According to a report from Games Industry International on Dec. 12, the president and chief executive officer first talked about the impressive milestones reached so far for the next-generation system.

Jack Tretton confirmed that the PS4 had “the largest console launch in history,” selling more than a million units in the North American region alone on the first day of release. He also stated that the NPD reported that the console was the best selling next-generation system in terms of hardware and software for the month of November. You can check out some images from the new gaming console in the slideshow to the left of this article and his statement below:

PlayStation 4 sales in North America and worldwide have been incredibly strong since launch, culminating in PS4 being recognized as the largest console launch in history. In North America alone, more than one million PS4 units were sold in only 24 hours and we're pleased NPD has reported that PS4 was the top selling next gen platform for both hardware and software in November.

The president and chief executive officer went on to provide an update on the stock availability of the PS4. He admitted that “demand continues to overwhelm supply.” However, he reassured fans that Sony Computer Entertainment is going to work hard to ship as many units as possible throughout the rest of the holiday season. You can find his comments below:

We are humbled by the passion and excitement demonstrated by gamers for PS4. Demand continues to overwhelm supply, but we're working hard to get PS4 units into the hands of customers throughout the holiday season.

The PS4 was first released in North America on Nov. 15. The next-generation system, which also came out for select European countries on Nov. 29, has an official price tag of $399.99.
