(Pocket-lint) - With official sales figures yet to be released, it has been revealed that the PlayStation 4 is the fastest-selling console in the UK, ever.

The console was released in the country on Friday, 29 November, and has outsold the Xbox One released a week earlier, which is said to have shifted 150,000 units in 48 hours. It has also outsold Sony's own PSP handheld, which was the previous holder of the record. That originally sold 185,000 units in four days of release, but it is believed that the PS4 has smashed that figure.
