With over 10 million worldwide sales, Sony's PlayStation 4 has enjoyed a very solid start. It's consistently outselling Microsoft's Xbox One, and in the UK, it's already become the company's fastest-ever selling console. In an interview with Eurogamer, Sony UK boss Fergal Gara revealed that it took the PS4 just 42 weeks to reach one million sales, beating the PlayStation 3 and the PS2 to the same milestone by four and eight weeks respectively. By contrast, the Xbox 360 took a total of 60 weeks, while Xbox One figures remain undisclosed.

Although impressive, the PS4's race to one million only ranks it as the second fastest-selling home console ever. The top spot actually belongs to the oft-forgotten Nintendo Wii, which notched its first million sales in just 38 weeks. Like this editor, many UK gamers chose Sony when it introduced The Last of Us: Remastered -- we wouldn't be surprised if the same happens again now that the white PlayStation 4 and Destiny bundle is on sale.
