PS3 breaks UK console records

Chart Track says approximately 165,000 PlayStation 3s were sold in...

 

UK gamers apparently didn't hold a grudge after Sony delayed the launch of the PlayStation 3 in Europe for three months. The console went on sale in the UK this past weekend, and the first round of sales numbers are in.

According to industry watcher Chart Track, the PS3 became the fastest-selling home console (does not include portables) in UK history, with almost 165,000 moved in its first two days on sale.

The PS3 was still behind a portable in the all-time gaming platform ranks, but it's doubtful that Sony will mind. The PlayStation Portable holds the record for fastest-selling gaming console with approximately 185,000 sold in its first two days on sale. The previous record holder for home consoles was the Wii, which sold more than 50,000 units in its first 12 hours, and was widely reported to have sold approximately 105,000 units in its opening weekend.

The PS3 helped two Sony software titles take the top spots on the UK's all-formats chart last week, with Resistance: Fall of Man and Motorstorm falling in slots one and two, respectively. Overall, six of the top 10 all-formats games were PS3 titles.

This marks the first time for the franchise to hit Nintendo consoles and we are told it will not just be a port. There are not a lot of details as of yet- we'll update as they come in.
