UK, March 27, 2007 - As expected, PlayStation 3 has become the fastest selling home console in British history, with 165,000 consoles flying off the shelves since it was launched last Friday.

Thanks to plenty of early stock - compared to the Wii and Xbox 360 - most people could walk into a store over the weekend and buy a console without any hassle. In fact, many retailers still have units available and the 165,000 consoles sold only account for a third of the overall UK stock.

PS3 comfortably beat the Wii and Xbox 360 launches, which managed to sell 105,000 and 70,000 respectively. However, while PS3 may be the best-selling home console, it still failed to eclipse Sony's PSP, which racked up a staggering 185,000 sales during launch weekend.

The fact that it has new Blu ray technology makes it a good investment.

Hey guys! i didnt want to make a thread just for this but im thinking on getting a ps3 but i have a regular Sony Triton TV, no HDTV so i know the graphic is not going to be the same as it looks at bestbuy stores, My friend is telling to get the HD TV first and then get the console but shit is not that easy.

The question is ....how big of a difrence would that make?

It won't make a huge difference but it will be noticable. I've heard people complain about not being able to read the text in certain games due to the low quality picture standard TVs put out. If anything you'll just notice that the overall graphics aren't as crisp as what you see in Best Buy but still playable.

Sony = Nazi's.

It's amazing their brand still sells after all the stupid things that have been said by their people. And that Europe still falls blind for the corporation that fucked them over with months of release, chips and more.

Well it's now wonder it becomes the fast selling console rigth now. Business has never been bigger. It's just growing. And being socially accepted and cool to play games.
