PS3 sales hit 5 million in the UK

Basically that’s a lot of PlayStation 3. According to Sony’s press release, “Cumulative sales of the PlayStation 3 have surpassed 5 million units in the UK.

Those figures are apparently, “The number of retail sales to customers confirmed by GfK Chart-Track“. It’s a figure that’s likely to carry on going up with the recent release of the PS3 Super Super Slim which is over half the size and weight of the original Foreman Grill model. Crucially it finely and firmly plants the console well under the £200 line that saw the PS2 explode sales-wise

Sony’s UK VP and managing director Fergal Gara said, “This is another historic moment for the PlayStation brand, and something I’m incredibly proud of. I’d like to thank all our consumers, retailers and 3rd party partners for helping us achieve this figure, and look forward to continued success.”
