Nintendo’s Wii console has finally been overtaken in the UK [via], with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 now the best selling console this generation. Sony’s PlayStation 3 remains in third place.
Stat tracking company Chart Track say the Xbox 360 has now told over 8.4 million units, and is “regularly outselling” its rivals.
“This is an historic milestone and our sincere thanks goes to each and every person that has bought and enjoyed Xbox 360 over the past eight years,” said the wonderfully named Director of Xbox and entertainment, Harvey Eagle.
“As you saw at E3 earlier this month, we announced a new Xbox 360 form factor and we are committed to ensuring Xbox 360 remains the best place to play games, connect with friends and enjoy your entertainment. You’ll see great exclusive content coming not only to Xbox 360, but also to Xbox One later this year.”
Sony’s PlayStation 2 is still the best selling console across all generations in the UK though, with 10 million units the figure Microsoft has to beat.
