Pretty crazy to see how well the PS4 is already doing. Over 2 million sold since it was released and it hasn't even been a month!

Once again, this is fantastic news. They definitely learned from the Playstation 3, back in its first HORRIBLE year. Sony should easily reach their 5 million goal by the end of the fiscal year.

Still wish we knew how much they sold in Europe.

What I find intriguing is how well both systems are doing. Microsoft haven't revealed exact numbers but it sold over 1 million in 13 regions. Sony sold just over 2 million in 32 regions. That to me says that these systems are about as good as neck and neck in this race as both would likely be on similar numbers if both launched in 32 regions. It's great news for gamers as we need these systems to be in competition. What we need now is for Wii U to start selling as a three horse race is always better but I don't have high hopes for that. I mean PS4 and Xbox One will both likely surpass the Wii U lifetime sales by the end of this year. That said, great news for Sony and great news for gamers all round as Microsoft aren't doing too bad either.

It really comes down to the games as time goes on. Exclusives down the road in particular.

One I can think of in the PS4's favor is Infamous: Second Son. For the One, I'm not sure? Since I don't have the One, I haven't really looked into its future at all.

Both consoles have a pretty positive future from an exclusive stand-point.

PS4 has;

Drive Club
inFamous: Second Son
The Order: 1886

Some of them are unknown quantities like;

Drive Club which only has the rather good history of its developer Evolution Studios to go on, but so far it's looked good.
The Order: 1886 is also an unknown quantity and it's Ready At Dawn's first home console release after working on God of War titles for handhelds. The most anticipated exclusive is
inFamous: Second Son and for good reason as it looks to take the previous games and just amp it up to insane levels. There are other exclusives if you count indie games but those are core AAA exclusives on the way in the next year.

Xbox One has;

Quantum Break
Sunset Overdrive
Fable Legends
Halo

Like the PS4 exclusives in the coming year there are some unknown quantities and some more recognizable faces that gamers will already know what to expect.

Quantum Break is the next title from Remedy and is being touted as Alan Wake meets Max Payne which sounds interesting, though time will tell on that one.
Sunset Overdrive is the next game from Insomniac Games, creators of Ratchet and Clank/Resistance. They jumped ship from Sony to Microsoft and this is the first game, other than that not much is known about it which is odd for a 2014 release.
Fable Legends is basically taking the gameplay fans love but giving it a 4-player co-op twist as everything is better with friends, right?
Halo is Halo, we know what we're getting with this it ultimately depends what story in the expanded universe they are choosing to tell with this one. It's probably the safest release Microsoft have for next year as Halo always does well.

Both systems look a bit thin in terms of exclusive content but when you add in some of the indie games and the multi-platform titles then they fit in quite well. Microsoft seem to have a major exclusive for every quarter of next year which is a good way to do things. That said we have VGX 2013 coming up where so many big name games get announced so both consoles may strengthen their 2014 exclusive line up at that event.

Sony showing that their even number consoles are going to be the dominant ones. 2.1 Million in just over 2 weeks is fantastic news for the Playstation brand and for Sony who were in somewhat of a financial struggle not so long ago.

PS4 has already surpassed WiiU LTD sales in under a week.

I believe Xbox One did as well.

...at least 3DS is doing well.

I'll order my PS4 on the next payday.. Gonna get the Killzone SF pack, so, I'll be adding my 500€:s to that already very impressive number soon. Remains to be seen if I'll get it before the end of the year though, but I can wait.

"How hungry for next-gen gamers have been". It's strange but i'm not hungry in the slightest. I feel like PS3 is still thriving, having had such a brilliant latter half of it's 'life cycle'. I feel like the next gen has come too early. Maybe i'll lighten up a little once Second Son hits and we start hearing news of other Sony staples (Guerrilla's new IP, Naughty Dog's next title, Metal Gear etc). Am I the only one who is going to wait it out (till about mid-2014?)

Yeah, it's sort of a bummer having so many good releases come out on the PS3 only, since so many people bought a PS4 and all.... WOULD SORT OF LIKE TO BE PLAYING ON IT....

Why would you buy a console if it doesn't have any games you'd like to play.

Do you not own either of, Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Black Flag or FIFA for the PS3? As you can upgrade to the PS4 and is uses the PS3 discs too. It's only £9.99/$9.99.

Give me Infamous and The Order and I'll be one of those 2 million people who own the console.
Unfortunately, The Order is scheduled for Fall 2014. >_>
