News: PS4 is the UK's Fastest-Selling Console Ever

PS4 sells 250,000 units in first 48 hours on sale in the UK, in comparison the Xbox One sold just 150,000 in its first 48 hours on sale, but more interesting is that in the same period the 7 year old PS3 sold 168,000 units!

Not quit panic stations yet for Microsoft, but already looking like this Christmas more people are after the more powerful pure gaming console PS3 than the jack of all trades, master of none XBox One!

It seems that Sony learnt from the mistakes of the past with Nintendo Wii beating all with pure gaming, and taken a leaf out of their book.

It will be a long race, but right now Sony are seemingly in the lead.
