PlayStation 4 Console Image

Sony’s next generation console, the PlayStation 4, is off to a booming start. The company has announced that they have surpassed one million units sold in the first 24 hours it was on store shelves.

But that’s just the start according to them. Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Jack Tretton is predicting three million units sold by the end of 2013, and the hope is that five million units will be sold by the end of their fiscal year in March of 2014.

If you want a tiny idea of just how many PS4 systems were pre-ordered, Amazon has released images from one of their order fulfillment centers. You can see them below.

Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., said of the news:

“PS4â„¢ was designed with an unwavering commitment to gamers, and we are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal. Sales remain very strong in North America, and we expect continued enthusiasm as we launch the PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support.”

According to Amazon, if you exclude their Kindles, the combined pre-orders of both the PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One (set for release in just a few days on November 22nd) would make up the largest product release in Amazon history of any product in any category worldwide. A big deal considering how much they cost. Proof of just how big gaming is right now.

You can try and grab your own PS4 right here, though they may not be easy to get your hands on with the holidays right around the corner (people are already selling consoles they’ve secured for upwards of $1,000 on Amazon).

Here are the images mentioned above. Keep in mind, this is just ONE of the many fulfillment centers Amazon has.

  1. Using that 3rd picture, it looks like 36 PS4s to a pallet. I counted about 30+ pallets in the first row before my eyes went buggy. At least 2 rows and part of a 3rd (or more)? The picture is impressive but it doesn’t even scratch the surface of what’s been sold! Crazy how much space and resources this one product seems to use.

  2. more interesting is the sheer number that arrived DOA or died shortly after being plugged in, on the night it was released, I lost count on Amazon of how many were bad, last count was over 500, that’s just what was reported on Amazon.
