PS4 Was "By Far The Largest Launch" In Canadian Gaming History
Seems our neighbors to the north are big fans of the PlayStation 4.
According to Sony Computer Entertainment Canada vice president and general manager Steve Turvey, the launch of the PS4 was the biggest release in Canadian gaming history. As he told GamesIndustry.biz:
"The launch was a huge success by any standard of measurement. It was by far the largest launch in gaming history in Canada, and we were really thrilled by the execution, but mostly the response by PlayStation fans and consumers."
Although they didn't release exact sales figures for the region, we do know that over 1 million units were sold in North America within the first 24 hours. Microsoft's Xbox One releases in Canada on Friday, November 22, and that also has a chance of being the region's biggest game launch. These two consoles are going to continue trying to one-up each other during the holiday season; the big question is, which one comes out on top?
Polls suggest Sony has the edge but we'll have to wait and see.
