Following the success in North America, the PS4 has set a new record in UK, becoming the fastest selling console in UK's History, says MCV. The console managed to sell over 250,000 units during its first 48 hours on sale, breaking the record previously held by the PSP which sold 185,000 units in its three days of availability.
Despite being released first, the Xbox One didn't manage to outsell the PS4 in UK, selling 150,000 units within its first two days. Both PS4 and Xbox One have already outsold the Wii U, despite Nintendo's console being available in the UK since last year.
The PS4 was released in UK last Friday, with most retailers already reporting that the console is currently sold out. The Xbox One has been available in UK since the 22nd of November.
