250k sold through.
The PlayStation 4 has bested the Xbox One's UK opening weekend sales figures, Chart Track confirmed today.
Sony's system, which launched this past Friday in the UK and Europe, sold through approximately 250,000 units within the first 48 hours, easily beating the Xbox One's number of 150,000 from the launch the previous week.
The news means that the PS4 is officially the UK's fastest selling console ever, and that both consoles easily eclipsed Nintendo's Wii U opening weekend numbers. Depending on who's numbers you look at, both the PS4 and Xbox One already have a larger user base in the UK than the Wii U, which was released over a year ago.
UPDATE: More data has been pushed our way, indicating that the Xbox One has sold 170,000 units in the UK since launch, and that both the PS4 and Xbox One have now definitely surpassed the Wii U in terms of lifetime sales.
