One million PS4s sold on first day

Although PlayStation 4s aren’t due to ship (well, away from the grey market) to this region for another week or so, initial sales from North America are looking good for Sony’s next-gen machine as it prepares for the mother of all console battles with the Xbox One. On the first day of release last Friday, as many as one million units are believed to have been sold to customers across the US and Canada. Now, of that one million, just how many are currently heading over to the Middle East with a rather inflated price tag?

Come forth Fallout 4

Fallout fans could have reason to rejoice as the rumour mill is starting to turn regarding the fourth instalment in Bethesda’s iconic, post-apocalyptic role player. Sources have revealed that the studio has filed a trademark for Fallout 4, shortly after the appearance of a teaser website titled Survivor 2299, featuring a counter due to expire on December 11 – the week of the Spike VGA Awards and a popular time for unveiling new titles. Troublesome internet users, however, have attempted to dispel the rumours, with some claiming that the site is a hoax. Spoilsports.
