Written by Michael Angelo on Wed, Dec 4, 2013 10:00 AM

Sony has announced during the Japanese PlayStation Awards that, as of 1st December, it has sold 2.1 million PS4 consoles to consumers.

The hardware giant sold 1 million PlayStation 4 units in just 24 hours after the U.S launch. This was followed by a further 1.1 million sales for PS4’s global launch, which expanded to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America...

Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony said that "PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history with the North American release and we've continued this incredibly successful start in Europe, Australasia and Latin America,"

"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."

They've even prepared a video as a "Thank you" to the players, check it out...

Are you impressed with the start for the PS4? Have you already got yours or are you still planning to buy one?

I don't get it why is PS4 so expensive in Brazil, it's hard to believe that any one would even buy it with that price.

Apparently 63% of the cost of a PS4 in Brazil is due to their massive import taxes. http://www.joystiq.com/2013/10/22/ps4-so-expensive-in-brazil-due-to-import-taxes-says-sony/

How doesn't it make sense? The PS4 is a lot more powerful than the Xbox One, it's better, it'll get more sales.

GD totals the resolution a bit weird, I have a 1440p and two 1080p monitors. The horizontal resolution is correct but as I have two different vertical resolutions it defaults to the lowest.

Get 5-10fps in what? I only game on my 1440p monitor and I sold a 7870 ready to upgrade to a 290X or 780ti.

I just said I only play games on my 1440p monitor. GD also defaults the vertical resolution to the lowest and as I have a 1440p monitor and two 1080p monitors, it calculates the horizontal resolution correctly but the vertical resolution is for the 1080p monitors only.

Man consoles are such a ripoff nowdays.
Playstation 4- $399
Online fees/Playstation plus- $50
1 game- $60 (new)
Total price: $509 for 1 GAME, And the graphics aren't even maxed out (depending on the game).

Playstation Plus does give you free games every month
and that 1 game you have mentioned costs as much as 59.99 euros in the UK when compared to $59.99 in the US
Although it may seem like a rip off, but PS4 is a far better option when compared to the XB 1

You didn't thin about the uses of the PC homeboy!!! Unlike consoles its not made just for gaming which explains the reason behind that price!!!

I know, was just pointing out that what the original poster was saying could be said for PC as well. Consoles are also multifunctional these days, not as much as PCs, but they do more than gaming, it's just deciding on what suits you best. All I use my PC for is internet, ms office and a little gaming.

This is quite incredible, and I wonder how much Xbox One's have been sold in comparison.
I plan on buying my PS4 for Christmas and I know that's going to be a nightmare!
