PS3 Breaks UK Records

It took a while, but the PS3 finally arrived in the UK last week, and already it has raked in some impressive stats, selling an estimated 165,000 in the first two days of sale, an impressive figure for a console with a high price point, at a period in the year where game sales are slow.

The 165,000 units sold means that the PS3 has become the fastest selling home console in UK history, selling more than the weekend takings from both the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, who struggled to keep up with initial demand during a busy Christmas period. The fastest selling piece of gaming hardware is still the Sony PSP, with 185,000 units sold in its opening weekend.
