PS4 the fastest selling console in UK history – 8 of the top 10 games on PlayStation 4

That did not take long at all. Chart Track has confirmed PS4 is already the fastest selling console in UK history, racking up over 250,000 sales in 48 hours. It also said that 8 of the top ten all formats chart entries are PS4 games. So, good going for Sony then.

PS4 officially the fastest selling console in UK history

Apparently the previous 8-year-old record belonged to the first PSP [Double checks... Really?]. In terms of games, Chart Track reports that the Killzone hardware bundles helped put that at number one with the top five looking a bit like this:

  1. Killzone: Shadow Fall
  2. FIFA 14
  3. Battlefield 4
  4. Call Of Duty Ghosts
  5. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

If you were wondering Knack came in at 13. The only non-PS4 games in the all formats top ten were GTA 5 at 7 and Batman Arkham Origins at 10.

You can see how the PS4′s UK launch went down around the country here.
