Analyst firm DFC Intelligence has said that the PlayStation 4 had the most successful launch of any console to date.
According to the firm, by selling 2.1 million units since launch the PS4 has become the "world's biggest console launch."
“The initial success of the PlayStation 4 bodes well for its future. The PlayStation 2 and Wii went on to be the best selling console systems ever. DFC Intelligence does not believe that the PlayStation 4 will surpass those systems but reiterates its forecast that the PS4 will be the number one system of this generation,” the firm said.
Microsoft announced yesterday that Xbox One managed 2 million sales in the same period, although DFC believes that Microsoft's console will have a more limited appeal over time.
What do you think of this? Are analyst's all talk, or do they have a point?
To us it doesn't really matter which system sells the best, as long as both have a healthy user base then it'll be good news for gaming. We don't want one system to run away with all of the sales as competition is good for innovation.
