Ask anyone at Sony, and they're likely to tell you that sales of 10 million PS4s in less than nine months is unvarnished good news. But in an uncharacteristic bit of self-questioning, Sony's head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has expressed some bewilderment and nervousness over the system's quick success.

"It's just beyond our imagination. We are so happy. But I for one am a bit nervous because we do not completely understand what's happening," Yoshida told Eurogamer in a recent interview. "You need to understand why your products are selling well so you can plan for the future, right? It defied the conventional thinking. Lots of people thought the dedicated game hardware might not be needed going forward, but still lots of people are very excited." ..

While PS4 sales have been quicker than expected, the worry of exhausting the market may be overblown. The PlayStation 3 took just over 13 months to sell its first 10.53 million units worldwide after its release in late 2006. That system then went on to sell more than 75 million units worldwide over its lifetime. It's possible that the universe of "core gamers" interested in a game console has dwindled in the intervening time or moved on to mobile or PC platforms, perhaps. Still, the quick sales of the PS4 thus far could just as easily suggest the opposite has happened. ..

if its singpost, they could even offer to mail the printed pages to me.
