Sony has revealed that one million PS4s have been sold in the UK since its launch, with these figures being sales through to consumers not retail outlets. It’s a rather large milestone making the console the second quickest to reach the million mark in the UK, with Nintendo’s Wii holding the title for fastest to reach that goal. With the latest figures pointing at over 10 million PS4s sold worldwide the UK has approximately 10% of the market.
We are pleased to announce that the PS4 has sold through 1 million units in the UK!

With the holiday season just a couple of months away the rate of sales will likely increase, and this time Sony is prepared to meet the demand. Speaking to Eurogamer Sony’s UK boss, Fergal Gera, stated that there will be plenty of supply this year, unlike last where there were shortages.
“So in short, way ahead. I’m expecting both a very strong sales Christmas and healthy volumes this Christmas. I don’t anticipate any consumer problems.”
Now we just have to wait for Microsoft to announce its sales figures, and with the new Kinectless bundle the million mark could be reached soon enough.
