Sony's sold two million PS4s in the UK

Although Sony's other businesses aren't faring too well, its entertainment division is helping keep the company's head above water. This is thanks, in part, to the success of the PlayStation 4, which continues to outstrip sales of the Xbox One and further compound Microsoft's console misery. With 22.3 million worldwide sales now in the bag, Sony has provided an update on how well the PlayStation 4 is getting on in the UK, announcing that it's now shifted more than two million units. According to Sony, the console reached the milestone over the past weekend, keeping it ahead of the super successful PlayStation 2. Those sales have also helped make it the best-selling domestic games console for 2015 so far. While it took 42 weeks for the PS4 to reach one million sales, it only took a further 35 weeks for Sony to double that tally. Something tells us that the console price wars are definitely influencing buyers, but exclusive games like Bloodbourne are doing their bit too.
