PS3 is the summer's best selling console in UK


PlayStation 3 was the No.1 console of the summer in the UK according to a new report.

MCV reports that thanks to a little help from the UK's second best selling game of the year, The Last of Us, PS3 hardware sales trended ahead of Xbox 360 for most of the summer.

“The success of The Last of Us is testament to the vision and quality of Naughty Dog, plus the tremendous support we've received from retail and media partners, who helped make it one of the year’s best selling games,” said SCE UK marketing director Murray Pannell.

Based on various pre-order charts it also looks like the PS4 is currently trending ahead of Xbox One, although it'll be impossible to tell for sure how the new consoles will match up to each other until quite a few months after release.

Don't go getting all big-headed now, Sony.

Probably not much danger of that as as soon as they're done reading that PS3 sales report they'll be having to read the Vita sales report right after :(
