Calling all gamers!
Sony's new console, the PlayStation 4, has become the fastest-selling console in UK history after its debut on Friday, November 29th.
This new console sold over 250,000 units, sources told MCV
, replacing the previous record holder PSP which sold 185,000 units back in 2005.
PS4 also helped increase the sales of games such as Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts
, Need for Speed Rivals
and Assassin's Creed 4.
Sony UK managing director Fergal Gara recently told TechRadar
that he sees a short life for PS4 due to the public's constant appetite for new technology: "I think there's reasons to believe that the next cycle might be shorter in markets such as the UK. It's probably a sign of the times and how much has changed in seven years, but I think the willingness and the appetite to pick up new technology fast has probably changed quite a bit".
It has been recently suggested that the console's cloud streaming service would launch throughout the UK in 2015 and next year in the US.
