PS4 sales hit 2 million in the UK alone

PS4 sales in the UK have reached two million, according to new data.

In less than 18 months since the PS4 release date, UK sales of Sony’s latest console have surpassed two million.

The latest milestone was revealed by data obtained by MCV via GfK Chart-Track, which showed the 2 million mark was achieved at the weekend.

PS4 sales are doing so well that the console is doing better than the PlayStation 2 — Sony’s previous best-seller.

“Reaching the milestone of two million PlayStation 4 sales in the UK in less than 18 months is an achievement we are very proud of,” said PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara.

“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 everyone involved in helping us achieve this landmark.”

The PlayStation 4 has been on sale in the UK for 75 weeks, and hit the 1 million mark at 42 weeks.

PS4 is currently the fastest selling console in the UK, outpacing its rival Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Worldwide PS4 sales have reached 22 million to date.
