    PS3's a Record Breaker

    As expected, PlayStation 3 has become the fastest selling home console in British history, with 165,000 consoles flying off the shelves since it was launched last Friday.

    Thanks to plenty of early stock - compared to the Wii and Xbox 360 - most people could walk into a store over the weekend and buy a console without any hassle. In fact, many retailers still have units available and the 165,000 consoles sold only account for a third of the overall UK stock.

    PS3 comfortably beat the Wii and Xbox 360 launches, which managed to sell 105,000 and 70,000 respectively. However, while PS3 may be the best-selling home console, it still failed to eclipse Sony's PSP, which racked up a staggering 185,000 sales during launch weekend.

    I guess if the other two consoles were delayed for around 5 months, they would have sold more at launch. I'd be lying if I said I was surprised by this.

    Congratulations to Sony in any case. Let's hope this helps their overall sales and popularity.

    That is some very good news for Sony. However, the important thing is what will become of the 2/3 of units in stock.
