Sony’s PlayStation 4 just went on sale last Saturday in the United States and Canada and the units went flying out of stores in a matter of hours.

In fact, Sony has sold over a million units in the first 24 hours in North America alone, making the PS4 the company’s fastest-selling console. There’s even a possibility that it may overtake the Wii U’s sales figures just before the end of the year once the console hits European shelves in under two weeks.

However, a number of bugs have been reported by users all over the world after getting their consoles. For starters, the PlayStation network bogged down last Saturday due to the increased number of PS4 logons that happened that day. This prevented a lot of users from downloading the essential day-one software update as well as downloading games and playing online.

There were even reports that some users experienced a “blue light of death” that rendered their consoles dead on arrival. Nevertheless, selling over a million units on its first day is quite a feat to achieve. And it’s very interesting if its main competitor the Xbox One would fair similarly once it becomes available.
