It’s no secret that PlayStation 5 is a massive success. Sony outright confirmed that it was the company’s biggest console launch ever and that demand was “unprecedented.” However, it also seems that the next-gen console broke console launch records in the UK as well.

This is according to VideoGamesChronicle, which cites publishing sources that it spoke to. Launch sales have reportedly “far exceeded” the PS5 which sold a whopping 250,000 units in the first 48 hours. With the Xbox Series X/S reportedly selling about 155,000 units on its first day, this puts the PS5 at a significant advantage. Interestingly, it seems that sales for both could have been higher if there was more stock.

It also seems that the regular version of the PS5 was more popular than the digital version and made up two-thirds of launch sales in the UK. Most hardware sales were also via pre-orders so it should be interesting to see if both Microsoft and Sony can keep up the momentum heading into the new year. As always, stay tuned for more details on the same.
