Sony’s PlayStation 4 saw a very strong launch across the world, most especially in the UK where it became the fastest selling platform in the country’s history since the PS Vita. According to MCV, it’s sales even managed to surpass the Xbox 360’s annual sales. At last count, it has sold 3 million consoles worldwide.

Sony UK MD Fergal Gara stated that, “We are delighted with the very strong sales of PS4 to date. Since we unveiled the console, gamers have shown huge interest in the PS4. Our focus now is rebuilding stock levels so those have not been able to get a PS4 can finally experience the next-gen.

“I’d like to thank the gamers, our retail and publishing partners who played a big part in making this success possible.”

As good as the PS4 did though, it didn’t beat the Nintendo 3DS in terms of overall sales. We did get Fire Emblem: Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a new Zelda and Pokemon and many other games for the platform, so it’s understandable.
