PS4 PlayStation 4 UK Sales

While we know that the PlayStation 4's crushing its console competition globally, the UK – along with the US – is typically touted as a region where things are a little closer. On the back of today's financial report, however, the platform holder has boasted that it's been on top for six months straight in Britain, meaning that its box remains unbeaten in 2015.

One of the reasons for its success can be attributed to Batman: Arkham Knight, which the Japanese giant deployed an exclusive gun metal machine alongside. The game, according to the platform holder, is now the fastest selling release of the year in the UK, beating the record previously held by CD Projekt Red's excellent role-playing title, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.

"We are delighted with the success of both Batman: Arkham Knight, with its exclusive PS4 content, and the limited edition Batman PS4 bundle," a chuffed spokesperson told MCV. "It contributed significantly to the PS4 leading next-gen sales for the month of June – continuing our successful streak winning every month this year so far." Nothing stops this train, eh?
