PS3 outsells the 360 in UK by 2-to-1

Sony’s PlayStation 3 console is currently outselling the Xbox 360 by as much as 2-to-1 in the UK, as sales of the next-generation machine skyrocket following the release of the 40GB console and subsequent price cut for the 60GB model.

Total weekly PS3 sales for the week ended October 21 stood at 64,087, catching up to Nintendo’s Wii console, which sold 70,322 units sold.

Meanwhile, despite a spike in sales following the release of Halo 3 some weeks ago, Xbox 360 sales slumped to just 37,303, having been outsold by every system last week other than the aging Gameboy Advance.

The 40GB SKU will arrive in North American territories on November 2.
