PS4 sales are tracking faster than PS2 in the U.K.

Sony has announced that PS4 has sold two million units in the U.K. since its launch in November 2013.

What’s more, the format holder’s flagship console has achieved the milestone faster than the PS2, which is currently Sony’s best-selling platform in the U.K. Well, to be fair, it’s also the best-selling platform ever, notching up 155 million sales globally since its launch 15 years ago. 

According to MCV, the sales milestone was achieved just last weekend and based off of data obtained by GfK Chart-Track.

Fergal Gara, head of Sony Computer Entertainment U.K., commented, “Reaching the milestone of two million PlayStation 4 consoles in the UK in less than 18 months is an achievement we are very proud of.

"To be the best selling ‘next generation’ console in Britain – installing faster even than the PlayStation 2 – is testament to an amazing and constantly improving product, the hard work of our trade partners and the team at PlayStation UK, and most importantly, the passion of the players. I would like to thank every one involved in helping us achieve this landmark.”

Sony confirmed last week that 22.3 million PS4s have been sold worldwide.
