yayyyyy sony executives get millions in bonus payments while tc works for minimum wage

yayyyyy!

lol. So salty. I especially love the part where you say I work on minimum wage. :-3

yeah I am salty of the sony exec's

im sure they are making millions from all these sales.

but youre not right? I guess flipping handburgers has its own pleasures.

Tell me more about my life, please!

Not sure why you ignored every iphone after the first.. Pretty sure every iphone after probably the 3gs sold faster than this.

iPhone 5s/5c Sales Top Nine Million in 3 Days

Because they're refreshes of the same product line.

I was comparing product launches, really. Admittedly, later iPhones and Galaxy S phones probably sold at a higher rate, but they were each a refresh.

(also, your link combines 5S and 5C- two different variants).

How the fuck is PS4 not a refresh of the same product line of the 3 previous PlayStations

And obviously, at MINIMUM either the 5s or 5c sold over 4.5 million in only 3 days. You can deduce over the course of 5 months they sold faster than the ps4

The PS4 is a completely different product, different hardware, different software, different everything. The iPhone 5S runs the same hardware and software as iPhone 5. You are arguing that the PS3, the PS3 Slim, and the PS3 Super Slim were different products. Or that the Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, and Gameboy Color were different products. They weren't.

It's a console refresh and in fact I'd say it's nothing more than the upgraded 360. Stop cherry picking products and this is a stupid thread. Go make a thread about Nintendo WiiU and why it's sucking ass right now.

I'm just saying it's not the fastest selling thing ever. with the logic on hardware that Iphones haven't changed so they don't count ,if that's the precedent everyone wants to maintain then during last gen the 60gb fat b/c ps3 was different then the non b/c ps3s and shouldn't be included in ps3 sales count because the hardware is different. And no charizard I don't think you're a cow I didn't realize you were OP I redacted that statement I'm glad for Sony the ps4 is hot right now but the drought Is starting to be annoying. I've only used mine for mgsgz don't starve and stealth since the end of last year. I had zero interest for infamous just like the others. And the only big thing I can see it getting until fall is tlou a last gen redo. So ya I'm salty as fuck because they aren't delivering. The xbone pisses me off too don't get me wrong I just find that I prefer it so far it has better games and variety. And of all next gen consoles the wii u gave me that new feeling console vibe a lot longer then the ps4 or xbone did, I still play it regularly. Zombi mh3 and the 2 Mario pikmin etc and being able to keep playing my wii titles was important the wii had the best rpg selection last gen minus oblivion and skyrim.

fastest selling console ever yes, I'm pretty sure iPhones and galaxy's sold a lot faster.

There have actually been quite a few items that have sold more than the ps4 in a 24 hour period....

I am actually doing my own research an I'm finding quit the opposite. The PS4 is the slowest and worst selling device, EVER.

I will present my research pointing out this amazing correlation as soon as I'm finished compiling.

Wrong you are Clive. When you factor in that the ONE is only in 13 countries and the PS4 is in like 47..................the research is staggering at this point.

SONY buildings are the fastest selling buildings on the planet as well,lol

Well done SONY, pleasantly surprised myself, didn't think it would sell faster than Apple products, Apple fans have been known to wait outside shops for days waiting for the latest Ipad/Iphone

This is a very flawed comparison. Why are you comparing the first ipod and iphone to the PS4. Phones in this era sell way faster than consoles (for obvious reasons) so this is already a rather flawed comparison.

iPhone 5 sells 9 million in first weekend

Samsung Galaxy S5 sells better than the S4 which was over 10 million in 1 month

Even more so, the PS4 is going to slow down in sales in the upcoming months. (Its still going to win the generation easily though) Its going to start trending under the Wii soon and possibly the PS2.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 add-on Kinect is the fastest-selling consumer electronics device ever – we know because Guinness World Records says so.

The controller-free motion-sensing device sold an incredible 10 million units between its 4th November 2010 launch and 3rd January – that's an average of 133,333 units per day.

But which products did Kinect beat to top spot on the fastest-selling list?

Here are the Guinness-endorsed top four best-selling consumer electronics devices ever by units sold per day:

  • Kinect: 133,000 (released 4th November, 2010)
  • iPhone 4: 120,000 (released 24th June, 2010)
  • Wii: 85,000 (released 19th November, 2006)
  • iPad: 50,000 (released 3rd April, 2010)

Ok, sure, it had Twilight Princess at launch, but that was pretty much it for a fair while, along with dodgy ports of CoD 3 and Need For Speed Carbon.

I am pretty sure units being built are the same. It is where they are allocated that are different.

Also I am pretty sure you ignored the one year difference between xbox 360 and Ps3 constantly. A year where ps3 was launched with 0 countries.

Don't say "PS4 is the fastest selling ANYTHING of all time" then setup tons of parameters so it can be.

Excite Truck was an excellent game. I put a good 60 hours into that one.

This is the fourth play station so comparing it to the first I pod is flawed logic. The intellect of cows is at all time low. Keep playing them sales on the indiestation yo

The fourth PlayStation is an entirely different product running entirely different hardware and software than the first PlayStation.

The seventh iPhone or nineteenth iPod (or whatever the fuck we are on now) still run the exact same software- there is no song that runs on an iPod Touch that won't run on a classic iPod.

Also, did you call me a cow? Looooooool

But there is software, apps and games that will not run on the older iPods/Phones

Impressive, I can see why though.

X1 is quite a surveillance console that requires Kinect and other shady stuff. Gaming is not its primary point.

Wii-U has that stupid tablet controller.

So yeah. PS4 is the only one to choose from for a reasonably featured console that focuses on gaming.

So what you're saying is SONY is the TRUE by gamers FOR gamers company? I wholeheartedly agree.

I'd like to take this time to give a big shout out to SONY for everything they've done for us this gen. It's been nothing short of amazing thus far.
