PlayStation 4 Sells One Million Units on Release Date; Still Has No Must-Own Games

The next generation of consoles has finally arrived (yes, the WiiU was released last year, but no one really seems to care), and PlayStation 4 sold one million units in the U.S. and Canada when it was released this past Friday.  Sony is predicting three million units sold before the end of the year, and that’s a realistic target, especially since shoppers haven’t trampled each other yet for the Black Friday sales (the system won’t be discounted, but it will likely come with bundle offers from retailers).  We’ll see how sales of Xbox One match up when Microsoft’s new console is released this Friday.

However, there are still no must-own games for Sony’s system.  Then again, the PlayStation 3 also didn’t have any, and it cost $600 at launch as opposed to PlayStation 4’s $400 price-tag.  I, for one, would like to thank all the early adopters for discovering the system’s kinks and quirks, and for their willingness to buy games that are also coming out on the current generation of consoles.
