The Sony PlayStation 4 has surpassed one million units sold in the United Kingdom, thanks to a sales surge because of the recent release of Destiny. It took less than 10 months to reach the 1 million unit mark, a faster tally than the PlayStation 2 or 3 in England.




"It's a fortuitous coincidence that the launch of Destiny will bring us over the million mark," said Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment UK managing director. "If you reflect back to last year, we announced PS4 and Destiny at the same time."


Even though global PS4 sales slowed in August, the console was still able to top the Microsoft Xbox One and Nintendo Wii U. Each company is preparing for the 2014 Christmas holiday shopping season, with Microsoft expected to do everything possible to generate sales to better compete against Sony.
