GamesIndustry.Biz reports that the PlayStation 3 has now sold over one million units in the UK, a milestone reportedly reached several weeks before the PlayStation 2 did back in its embarrassingly low-polygon day. Sony's black behemoth was launched in the region on March 23 2007 -- roughly 47 weeks ago -- and thus reached the million mark in (slightly) less time than the 50 weeks taken by its predecessor.

Considering the PS3's steeper price and the considerable competition it faces compared to the PS2, the news bodes well for Sony's future in the territory, especially when coupled with EA's pro-Station prediction for 2008. Things would be looking quite rosy if it wasn't for that darn Wii contraption.
