GZ: Other websites have reported that PS3 sales in the UK have risen by 999 per cent, but it's actually higher due to the fact that Chart-Track's system doesn't go any higher.
According to Chart-Track, sales of the PS3 have increased by over 999 per cent in the UK. The hardware and software tracker's system is actually limited to three digits, so the actual increase is higher, at around eleven times the previous week.
Of course, like in Japan, consumers have been waiting for the release of the PS3 Slim, with PS3 sales dropping by 20 per cent last week.
Xbox 360 sales are actually up again, this time by 29 per cent, compared to a 43 per cent increase a week earlier.
The PS3 Slim's sales puts the console ahead of all other video gaming hardware, at three times the sales of the Xbox 360, DS Lite and Nintendo Wii individually (they all sold around the same in the week ending 5th September).
