The PlayStation 4 shipped out more consoles on its launch day through Amazon than any video game system in history.

The data was confirmed by an Amazon spokesperson to GeekWire, who made the claim of most shipped all-time.

Amazon is a good way to judge how the PS4 is doing because of their rating system. However, according to GeekWire, around 40 percent of customers who bought the console gave it one star and were dissatisfied with their purchase.

"More than 99 percent of Amazon customers are having a great experience with their new console," an Amazon spokesperson told the electronic site. "We are working with Sony to assist the small percentage of customers who have reported issues and our customer service team stands ready to offer an exchange or where possible, help customers get their systems up and running."

According to Amazon policy, their customers are able to receive new consoles or refunds if their console was defective or broken. However, with almost 40 percent giving the console one star, and the spokesperson claiming 99 percent satisfaction, some of the numbers appear off.

After the first 24 hours Amazon made an announcement to let customers looking to purchase the Playstation 4 know they were wiped out.

"Due to extremely high demand, Amazon.com is currently sold out of the Playstation 4 inventory. However, there may be offers available from Marketplace Sellers. Please check back on the Amazon Video Games Facebook page for the next update on when Amazon.com will have more Playstation 4s," Amazon posted.

Sony overall sold more than 1 million PS4 units on its launch day in the U.S. and Canada alone.

"PS4 has sold through over 1 million units with the 24 hours of the launch in North America!!! :D," Sony President of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida announced on Twitter.
