GameStop: PS4 Launch Has Already Eclipsed PS3 Launch
It helps when you actually have systems to sell.
During a recent earnings call, GameStop president Tony Bartel said the PS4 sell-through numbers since November 15 (launch day) are 80% higher than the total number of PS3 units sold during GameStop's entire 2006 fiscal year.
Of course, we have to put that in perspective, as the PS3 launched in November 2006 and GameStop's fiscal year ended in February 2007, so it was only a matter of three months. Still, that means the PS4 needed less than six days to nearly double the PS3's first three-month sales tally. It was also confirmed that the retailer has sold through their launch stock, and nearly 2.3 million people are on their "First to Know" list.
It was previously reported that over 1 million PS4 consoles were sold in North America in the first 24 hours.
