Sony PS4 hits the 1 million milestone in North America on the launch day itself

Sony has gone on record to reveal that it managed to sell over 1 million units of the PS4 gaming console within 24 hours in North America where it was released on November 15. This shows how eagerly gamers were waiting for the machine to hit the market.

By achieving this particular feat, Sony has raised the bar to a great extent and what remains to be seen is weather the Xbox One is capable of hitting this milestone or not. The fact that the PS4 is as much as $100 cheaper than Microsoft’s contender works in the former’s favor. Nevertheless, we are sure the Xbox has its set of fans who are willing to shell out the extra bucks.
