PlayStation sales top 2 million

Two million youngsters in the United Kingdom are now playing on PlayStation computer games, according to the manufacturer Sony. PlayStation, which runs hit games like Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy 7, claimed the figures made it the best- selling manufacturer of video consoles in every country in the world.

Sony Computer Entertainment said that it had doubled sales of the units in eight months, having broken through the one-million sales barrier last May. Its marketing director, Alan Welsman, said: "This record-breaking performance reinforces Sony PlayStation as the market leader, and strengthens its position as a leading home entertainment package providing next generation video gaming to million in Britain and around the world." The product was launched in the UK in September 1995.
