[EN]: SCEA announced earlier today the company has sold over a million PlayStation 4 consoles in its first 24 hours of availability in the US and Canada.

Andrew House, President and Group CEO at Sony Computer Entertainment, said: “PS4 was designed with an unwavering commitment to gamers, and we are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal. Sales remain very strong in North America, and we expect continued enthusiasm as we launch the PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support.”

Sony still has a few issues to overcome: the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One is coming in five days, the high price of the PS4 in Brazil, and PS4 hardware/software problems (system update and “blue light of death”).

For now, Sony has something to be happy about: the most consoles sold during a launch in its history. The PlayStation 3 reached its first million consoles sold 50 days after its launch.

[ES]: Sony anunció el día de hoy que la compañía ha vendido más de un millón de consolas PlayStation 4 en sus primeras 24 horas de disponibilidad en los EE.UU. y Canadá.

Andrew House, presidente y director general de grupo de Sony Computer Entertainment, dijo: “El PS4 fue diseñado con un firme compromiso para los jugadores, y estamos encantados de que la reacción de los consumidores ha sido tan fenomenal. Las ventas siguen siendo muy firmes en América del Norte, y esperamos continuo entusiasmo al lanzar la PlayStation 4 en Europa y América Latina el 29 de noviembre. Estamos muy agradecidos por la pasión de los aficionados de PlayStation y les damos las gracias por su continuo apoyo”.

Sony todavía tiene algunos asuntos que superar: el lanzamiento del Xbox One de Microsoft viene en cinco días, el precio alto del PS4 en Brasil, y problemas hardware/software del PS4 (actualización del sistema y la “luz azul de la muerte”) .

Por ahora, Sony tiene algo para ser feliz: la mayoría de consolas vendidas durante un lanzamiento de su historia. El PlayStation 3 llegó a su primer millon de consolas vendidas tras 50 días de su estreno.

Xbox One: 13 countries confirmed for 2013 console launch | 13 países confirmados para el lanzamiento de la consola en 2013

[EN]: Microsoft announced via its Xbox Wire that the launch of the Xbox One will not make it to all the 21 markets it had promised earlier during E3 2013.

Though people in many of the announced countries will be happy to be among the first to experience Microsoft’s new console, the ones in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland, will have to wait sometime in 2014.

The causes of the delay, according to the post, are “to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice and languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.”

As an apology, the company will offer a pack-in game to those who have already pre-order the console in each of the mentioned countries.

Las causas de la demora , de acuerdo con el puesto, son “para localizar el “dash” del Xbox One, incorporar la voz y otros idiomas, y crear asociaciones para traer aplicaciones y contenidos locales importantes de cada país”.

A modo de disculpa, la compañía ofrecerá un juego empaquetado para aquellos que ya tienen pre -ordenada la consola en cada uno de los países mencionados.

Nintendo confirms the launch of its next console | Nintendo confirma el lanzamiento de su próxima consola

English | En español: [http://blogs.impre.com/piensa-digital/2011/04/25/nintendo-confirma-el-lanzamiento-de-su-proxima-consola/].

A few hours ago in Japan, Nintendo confirmed what many people had been expecting. After days of what were only rumors and unsubstantiated alleged information, the Japanese company said it will demonstrate its upcoming game console during E3 2011 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) from June 7th to 9th.

Nintendo said its next gaming console, according to rumors called Project Café (like the Wii was first called Revolution), will be available next year. There’s still no definite date for its launch, however, it will be available according to the company after April 2012 due to the lack of inclusion of sales of a new console ending March 2012.

The early arrival of a next-generation console may cause some changes at Microsoft and Sony. It is thought that the next console will be more powerful than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and be accompanied by a new controller that includes a large touch screen, and that future consoles from Sony and Microsoft may not be available until 2014. More specifications of the next Nintendo console will be revealed during E3.
