The publication VGC, citing anonymous sources, reported that the PS5 in the UK showed the largest start of sales in the history of consoles.
- The PS4 once had a quarter of a million copies in two days. PS5 sold “much better”
- VGC Says PS5 Strongly Outperforms Xbox Series X & S (155,000 Per Day)
- Two-thirds of sales came from the PS5 with a floppy drive. Xbox Series X and S have roughly the same ratio
Without a shortage, both consoles would have shown much more impressive results. All new lots will probably be quickly sold out. At least 3,500 consoles fell into the hands of a group of dealers, and several dozen more were stolen from delivery vans.
Sony has already announced that the PS5 launch is the largest in its history. This automatically makes the console the record holder in the general sense.
