The PS5 is the fastest-selling PlayStation console in the UK to date, having hit the 1 million units sold mark three weeks faster than the PS4 did.
The PS5 has been riding an unbelievable wave of success since its launch in November last year, with clean -up sales data and surprisingly familiarity and no sign of stopping. Not surprisingly, its worldwide success is also reflected in Britain.
As per the information released by Gfk (via Sports), the PS5 crossed 1 million units sold in the UK on August 28. That means the best -selling PlayStation console in the UK to date, after that milestone three weeks earlier than the PS4. Although the lack of shares initially affected console sales, the large number of resale over the past few months has helped drive sales more quickly.
For the month of August, which saw a total of 151,500 consoles sold in the UK, the PS5 was the best -selling device of all, with the Nintendo Switch following behind, and the Xbox Series X / S earned third place. In total, more than 1.4 million consoles have been sold in the UK in 2021 to date, a third more than comfort consoles sold at this time last year.
The PS5’s worldwide cargo numbers currently stand at 10.1 million units. Recently 1 million signage units were crossed in Japan as well.
