    ps3 165,000 PS3s sold in UK

    The votes have been counted, the phone lines are closed - and top shop watchers Chart-Track can now reveal that UK consumers bought no less than 165,000 PlayStation 3 units in the first two days after the console went on sale.

    That makes PS3 the fastest-selling home console in history, beating the Wii - which shifted 105,000 units during its launch weekend - and Xbox 360, with 70,000 sold. Microsoft and Nintendo struggled to meet demand for their consoles, leading to bare shelves, empty hands and wet cheeks across the land.

    Amazing...the PS3 sells 165,000 and still is in stock at quite some stores. I never figured that would happen.

    it will sell because they had all the time to prepare for this launch. if this was a worldwide simultaneous launch akin to the 360 and the Wii it wouldn't have the capacity to meet demand. this is normal because it's a launch. the real treat is to figure out how much it'll move post-launch or how much consoles are going to collect dust in-stores.
