Sony's PlayStation 4 is the fastest-selling console in UK history, according to official sales figures.

Chart-Track said PS4 beat the eight-year record help by Sony's PlayStation Portable, which launched in 2005 to the tune of 185,000 sales. PS4 beat Xbox One, which launched on 22nd November, and its predecessor PlayStation 3.


Just for the record the Xbone did 150k.

The PS4 launch in the UK set another record for biggest launch after NA. Numbers will be out soon.

Now would that be life time sales in the UK, or life time sales world wide, because if it's life time world wide, mother of god.

The Twitter post is a little confusing.

A bit worrying for MS as 360 bossed ps3 here in the UK. There is much more buzz over the ps4 than the xb1. That the tv integration is basically gimped in Europe due to 50hz broadcast standard hasn't exactly helped the bone, and MS are still silent on that matter.

The exact number of PS4s sold in the UK was not revealed, although MCV understands that the figure is not just higher than PSP’s 180k, but significantly so.

My guess is around 250ks for the PS4. If it's 500ks, :O

Sony's taking it over.

On another note; I thought this was a pretty funny excerpt from that article: "and rounding out the top 10 is Batman: Arkham Oranges.
"Welcome to nowhere and finding out where it is."

I don't think there will ever be a console generation when Microsoft sells more than Sony.
