PS3 Slim

Based on a quick back-of-fag-packet calculation, it appears that the PS3 may have sold as many as 40,000 units in the UK, in the first week alone. According to the BBC, the PS2 Slim sold 50,000 in the UK. Sony recently commented that first week sales of the PS3 Slim amounted to 80% of that number, hence the figure in the headline.

Sony must be extremely pleased, given the less than stellar sales of the original version of the PS3.
