Sony’s PS4 Is The UK’s Fastest Selling Console Ever

Published December 2, 2013 by |

Sony’s PlayStation 4 has become the fastest-selling console in UK retail history.

The new £349 next-gen console launched on Friday, November 29th, and quickly sold more than a quarter of a million units in less than three days.

The console launched alongside a line-up of more than 25 games, including FIFA 14, Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Need for Speed: Rivals, Just Dance 2014, Resogun and others.

The PS4’s 250,000 UK debut therefore performed better than the Xbox One, which launched earlier last month. Microsoft’s £429 machine reportedly sold around 150,000 units in the same timespan.

Following the successful launch Sony has promised to send a “substantial” amount of PlayStation 4 units to the UK in order to meet demand before Christmas.
