The PS3 has now passed the 3m sales barrier in the UK, SCEE has officially confirmed.
“We are delighted to have passed the 3m milestone with PS3,” an SCE UK spokesperson told MCV.
“With the incredibly strong line up that we have going forward – Heavy Rain, White Knight Chronicles and God of War III in the first quarter alone, then Gran Turismo 5, Modnation Racers, Motion control, and a few surprises for the new fiscal year, this is a great way to start the New Year.”
Sony recently reported that it sold 3.8m PS3 consoles around the world in the closing weeks of 2009.
Industry figureheads around the world have been keen to praise the PS3’s global performance in recent times, with NPD describing its North American performance as “a turning point” and ELSPA boss Mike Rawlinson calling it 2009’s “star console”.
