Sony has sold 2 million PlayStation 4 consoles in the UK, faster than it did with the PlayStation 2 – the company’s best-selling machine in the country.
MCVUK is reporting that as of last weekend, 2 million PlayStation 4s have been sold in the UK. The data is based on GfK Chart-Track estimates.
This makes PS4 the fastest-selling Sony console ever, as well as the best-selling console in the country in 2015 thus far.
“Reaching the milestone of two million PlayStation 4 consoles in the UK in less than 18 months is an achievement we are very proud of,” PlayStation UK’s Fergal Gara said.
“To be the best selling ‘next generation’ console in Britain – installing faster even than the PlayStation 2 – is testament to an amazing and constantly improving product, the hard work of our trade partners and the team at PlayStation UK, and most importantly, the passion of the players. I would like to thank every one involved in helping us achieve this landmark.”
It’s worth emphasising that the “fastest-selling” milestone is only referring to Sony’s other consoles, and not the country’s in general.
Sony recently announced that over 22 million PlayStation 4 units were shipped by the end of March, worldwide.
