PlayStation 3 sales in the U.K. have rocketed by a whopping 138 per cent thanks to the launch of the recent Super Slim model.
According to MCV, 37 per cent of that figure can be attributed to sales of the 500GB version of the PS3 Super Slim.
The PS3 Super Slim launched last week and clocks in at 25 per cent smaller and 20 per cent lighter than its predecessor, the original PS3 slim. In addition, it also boasts a sliding disc cover as opposed to the loading drive present in earlier models.
Aside from the 500GB edition, U.K. gamers will also be able to pick up a 12GB flash memory version of the super slim model, replacing the 250GB SKU available in North America.
Stay tuned for our review of the PS3 Super Slim in the near future.
