PlayStation 4 sales in the UK have shot past the 1 million mark, Sony has revealed.
UK MD Fergal Gara told MCV that the console managed the feat in just 42 weeks, making it the second fastest-selling console in the country of all-time. The Wii managed to hit the same figure in 38 weeks.
"We have certainly seen PS3 consumers come across quite hard and fast," Gara said. "But a very significant proportion are people we have never seen on our network before. And from their behaviour and the types of games they are playing, it’s fairly clear that a big chunk of those have come across from Xbox, which is tremendous to see. And there’s a chunk that look like they’re brand new to gaming. And they’ve picked PS4 as their first serious gaming device."
