Back in September, Sony revealed that PlayStation 4 sales in the UK crossed 1 million, which made it the 2nd fastest-selling console of all-time in the region at 42 weeks.

Now, eight months later and 75 weeks after its initial launch, Sony confirmed to MCV that PS4 sales have topped 2 million in the UK. Not only does this make it the best-selling console of 2015, but it also reached the milestone faster than the PlayStation 2.

Based off of GfK Chart-Track retail data, PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara talked about passing 2 million: “Reaching the milestone of two million PlayStation 4 consoles in the UK in less than 18 months is an achievement we are very proud of.”

On a worldwide basis, Sony’s financial report recently revealed that PS4 sales are over 22.3 million. By March 2016, the company expects to have that number around 38 million.

Do you think there’s any chance the Xbox One or Wii U will catch up to the PS4 in the UK?
