After the news earlier today that market research group DFC Intelligence was dubbing the launch of the PlayStation 4 the biggest ever for a console, a statement from Sony President and CEO Jack Tretton confirmed it, backed up by new numbers from the NPD.

"PlayStation 4 sales in North America and worldwide have been incredibly strong since launch, culminating in PS4 being recognized as the largest console launch in history," Tretton explains. "In North America alone, more than one million PS4 units were sold in only 24 hours and we’re pleased NPD has reported that PS4 was the top selling next gen platform for both hardware and software in November."

The figure of one million units sold within 24 hours was impressive and it seems like Sony is able to meet demand for its new hardware fairly well all things considered. Jack concludes: "We are humbled by the passion and excitement demonstrated by gamers for PS4. Demand continues to overwhelm supply, but we're working hard to get PS4 units into the hands of customers throughout the holiday season."
