Our friends over at Destructoid report that the PlayStation 3 has become the UK’s fastest selling console ever.

Chart-Track has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that UK consumers snapped up 165,000 PlayStation 3 units in the two days following the console’s launch.
That makes PS3 the fastest-selling home console in history, beating the Wii – which shifted 105,000 units during its launch weekend – and Xbox 360, with 70,000 sold.
Both Nintendo and Microsoft struggled to meet demand with their consoles, leading to stock shortages – but Sony previously stated that the UK would get around 220,000 of the 1 million PS3 units allocated to Europe for launch
