Well PS4 was a world wide launch, and the ps3 launched later in Europe. The PS3 sold over 700k in the first 4 weeks in Europe, so these numbers paint kind of the wrong image. No denying the PS4 is selling way better though.

But PS3 launched in Japan and PS4 didn't.

Gratz to Sony.

Damn impressive, and yet there's hardly any PS4 on shelves...

Both Sony and Microsoft approach this one much better from a supply chain perspective, so that's a big part of it. However, history has shown an increase in sales between every generation.

Wow, PS4 and XBO are opening up to much stronger sales then the PS3/360 did. I wonder, are both consoles just opening strong because of how long the PS3/360 gen was, or will this gen sell a lot more in general?
