Thankfully for Sony and its investors, it seems like the company's critical rollout of its PlayStation 4 game console has by all accounts smashed records. In the first 24 hours on sale, Sony managed to sell an astounding 1 million PlayStation 4 consoles.

And while important, this isn't the only major storyline that will interest investors this week: On Friday, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) will also be rolling out its much-anticipated Xbox One console.

More than just consoles
Meanwhile, there's also the record-setting rollouts of two of the most successful gaming franchises of all time: Take Two Interactive's (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) Grand Theft Auto 5 and Activision Blizzard's (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) Call of Duty: Ghosts.

In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at the storylines in the gaming space that investors must watch in the months and weeks to come.
