PlayStation 4 has become the fastest-selling console in UK history, market research outfit Chart-Track has announced.

PlayStation 4 sold 250,000 units in two days, following the console’s launch on Friday. It smashes the previous record of 185,000 set by the PSP in 2005. MCV reports that PlayStation 4’s UK sales numbers equate to £87 million in revenue.

The Xbox One, meanwhile, sold 150,000 units in the same period of time.

Just read this a few moments ago and it's fantastic news. Judging by the sales, Sony has done a great job of getting people back on their side.

That's excellent. Keep proving to 'certain' people that console gaming is not dead.

Sad, but not surprising at all to be honest. There's no way that console will bounce back. Nintendo in the UK is equivalent to Xbox in Japan.

The most Surprising thing was Knack a new IP with terrible review scores ended up outselling Mario.

Slash, that does surprise me. At the same time, It's just that 3D World is on a console that no one wants. It's a fantastic game, but a quality game means nothing if the hardware it's on isn't appealing to anyone.

So much for me thinking that game could move units. XD
