PS4 becomes fastest-selling console in UK historyWritten by: / / 3 Comments
Market research company Chart-Track has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 beat the eight-year record held by Sony’s own PlayStation Portable to become the fastest-selling console in UK history. The PSP sold over 185 000 units when it launched in the UK in September 2005 so we at least know that PS4 launch sales exceeded this total until Sony provides us with exact figures.
The Xbox One launched in the United Kingdom a week before the PS4 but clearly failed to set the charts alight during its first few days of availability despite the Xbox 360 being the UK’s most successful home console during recent years.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One still have to launch in a few major territories such as Japan so it will be interesting to see how their respective worldwide sales compare at the end of next year.
