The PlayStation 4 is now Sony's fastest-selling console, selling through 1 million consoles in just 24 hours.

According to Yahoo Japan, this surpasses Sony's previous record with the PlayStation 2, which reached 1 million sales in three days. However, the launch for that console was limited to Japan.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed via Twitter that the 1 million figure represents sell-through, meaning that is the number sold directly to consumers. The PS4 has gone through some controversy due to early network issues and a post quickly taken down from the Electronic Arts help page, but that has not seemed to stymie interest in the system.
