PS3 Selling Like Hotcakes in the UK

CheeseMan42 - September 7, 2009 08:18AM in Gaming

Sales of the new PS3 Slim are way up this week in the UK, 1000 percent over the previous week. This can likely be attributed to the fact that it is a newer model with a larger hard drive, and more importantly a lower price. The PS3 Slim even managed to outsell the other two major consoles and the DS Lite by a 3 to 1 ratio. Though the important question is whether the demand will stay up or if this was just a one time spike. Also, it is unknown how many units were purchased by new customers rather than existing customers looking to upgrade.
