The PS4 is indeed the fastest selling console in UK history.

However, try not to read the Daily Mail. For your own sake.

Hmmm....they sold 100,000 more PS4's than MS sold Xbones, very impressive. TLHBO.

I think this qoute sums it up.

"Similarly, IHS has predicted Sony will sell 2.4 million PS4 consoles by the end of 2013, with Microsoft managing a similar amount of 2.2 million Xbox One consoles."

If that comes to pass MS will be singing and dancing in the streets, lol. That alone invalidates the article, but oh well. Things look great for both systems and that's a win for gamers no matter what you prefer.

You are seriously quoting that Nazi paper?

@clyde46: Referring anything to a Nazi, which isn't a Nazi, pretty much invalidates any further communication you may have on this site, including your opinions. Banning you now.

No matter what your choice in gaming consoles, you should never frequent the Daily Mail.

@Randolph: Because your opinion differs. Right, my child? Oh no wait... because the are "nazis." Right?

Lord Rothermere was a friend of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, and directed the Mail's editorial stance towards them in the early 1930s.[33][34] Rothermere's 1933 leader "Youth Triumphant" praised the new Nazi regime's accomplishments, and was subsequently used as propaganda by them.[35] In it, Rothermere predicted that "The minor misdeeds of individual Nazis would be submerged by the immense benefits the new regime is already bestowing upon Germany". Journalist John Simpson, in a book on journalism, suggested that Rothermere was referring to the violence against Jews and Communists rather than the detention of political prisoners.[36]

Rothermere and the Mail were also editorially sympathetic to Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists.[37] Rothermere wrote an article entitled "Hurrah for the Blackshirts" in January 1934, praising Mosley for his "sound, commonsense, Conservative doctrine",[38] and pointing out that: "Young men may join the British Union of Fascists by writing to the Headquarters, King's Road, Chelsea, London, S.W."[39]

The Spectator condemned Rothermere's article commenting that, "..the Blackshirts, like the Daily Mail, appeal to people unaccustomed to thinking. The average Daily Mail reader is a potential Blackshirt ready made. When Lord Rothermere tells his clientele to go and join the Fascists some of them pretty certainly will."[40]

@xboxdone74: Because they are the Fox News of the UK, they are just bad at journalism, and appeal exclusively to the absolute worst in people.

PS4 - 250,000 in 2 days

XB1 - 170,000 in 2 weeks

WiiU - 150,000 In 1 year

Yup, SDC confirmed. Time for Nintendo and MS to give up all hope in UK.

LOL even the PSP sold like hot cakes at launch, how did that work out for Sony? PS4 has no long term vision, the sales will tail off quickly.

Don't quote the Daily Mail. They suck.

It's just that the xbox one seems so media focused over gaming, which should be it's root and the fee for xbox live gold still is a slap in the face !!

People love to hate end of the day daily mail is a news paper it tells it how it is for the most part, you may think its important about gaming and will slag it and say everything but this fore them is little news and is not being biased towards ps4 just because most of you think so.
