PS4 Becomes Fastest Selling Console In UK History

PS4 Becomes Fastest Selling Console In UK History

The PS4 is now the UK’s fastest selling console according to Chart Track, beating the old 8-year record held by PSP of 185,000. PS4 beat Xbox One, which launched on November 22nd, and it also beat its predecessor, PS3.

Sony is yet to announce actual PS4 figures.

The bestselling PS4 exclusive was Killzone: Shadow Fall, coming in at number 4 on the UK charts. Of course Call of Duty: Ghosts is sitting at number 1 (people can’t get enough of that game!). FIFA 14 dropped to second place although, according to Chart Track, the game saw “strong sales” on Sony’s new console. Battlefield 4 is in at third.

The big stunner however, was the fact that Knack debuted at 13, beating the epic Super Mario 3D World, which debuted at 14. Yes, you read that right.

Nintendo’s Wii U is in big trouble in the UK.
