I don't know where you're getting this fastest selling of all time unless you're only talking about NA (in which case this could be true) but you probably aren't seeing as you're using global numbers sold at 3.78m which the article doesn't state. It only says they sold 3.9m to retailers. Where is this 97% sold? Because as far as I know global sales for it total to about 3.2m

The 3.9 million was sold to retailers not to consumers..

Stop making up crap and troll baiting.

Fun fact TC Sony Already sold 4.5 mill more than m$ 3.9 shipped. What happen to all that M$ talk before release how they was going to out shipped Sony?

Sony japan release next month you can close your eye and add 1 mill to Sony list easily.

Shipped=/=Sold some people have reading comprehension that why M$ have to word the number to make xbotx feel good about wasting $500 on a 720p machine.


Over time Japan will add sales to PS4 but historically they are very slow adopters. The PS3 only sold around 80k in 24 hours when it launched in Japan.

Europe is Sony's biggest base of sales.

How'd Sony manage to give up so much ground since E3 2013?

I don't really think they have given up ground. PS4 is currently selling around 1.5x more than XBone.

And that's with shortages..if systems were more available the number would probably be close to 2x.

At current rate of sales in 3 years if xbox has sold 30 million units Sony will have Sold 15 million more units.

Rate of sales will change..but if there is a big influx of production for Sony you will see a quick boom of sales for them.
