Sony takes a major win from Activision’s blockbuster launch.


PS4 hardware sales rose 300% in the UK last week thanks to Destiny’s launch, MCV’s reporting.

While no specific figures were forthcoming – the number’s from ChartTrack: if you release the actual data you go to jail for 100 million years – it’s been confirmed that last week was PS4’s biggest of the year in Britain.

PS4 outsold Xbox One by 2:1 in the UK last week.

Destiny took over $325 million in sales in its first fives days on sale, as reported yesterday.

The “shared world shooter” was the most pre-ordered new IP in history.
