After a solid six years going on seven of being on the market, PlayStation 3 has sold over five million units in the UK, MCV has revealed.
The new milestone was reached faster than projected after PS3 sales surged to 138 percent following the launch of the redesigned PS3 slim on September 28th, boasting 500GB.
“It is fantastic that we passed the 5m mark,” UK MD Fergal Gara told MCV. “But most importantly to me is not the milestone itself, but the fact that there is momentum behind it. And with the new chassis, and the way the market is panning out this year, PlayStation definitely has the momentum.”
