PS4 Is Now The Second-Fastest Selling Console In UK History
PlayStation has always fared well in Europe and the PlayStation 4 is no exception.
The PS4 has exploded out of the gate in the UK and according to MCV, it has become the second fastest-selling video game console in the region's history.
Sony's next-gen console hit one million in total sales only 42 weeks after launching. In comparison, the PS2 (which eventually became the best-selling console of all time, with around 160 million sold worldwide), didn't reach the milestone until after 50 weeks at market. The Xbox 360 required 60 weeks. Only the Nintendo Wii has topped them all, hitting one million in just 38 weeks.
Of course, the difference is that the Wii was a fad - as I always said it was - which sold like crazy for a few years and then you couldn't give one away. Obviously, the PS4's appeal will last much longer, so the PS4 could end up becoming the best-selling game system in the UK.
