$399 for PS4 is incredible, PS4 is going to have the best opening for a Playstation console since the PS2.

Not all pre orders are day one or week one but 1 million 3 months out is pretty great.

Wow, this is great new. The PS4 is going to sell a lot the first week. It's good that the pS4 will be coming out in Nov. I will not get a ps4 this year, or an xbox one but next year I will get one. I still have a lot of games for ps3 that I want to play for this year, games like GTA V.

1 million sounds like an awful lot. What are launch numbers for previous consoles?
