Sony's console records an 11 fold jump in UK sales following the launch of the new PS3 Slim.
Sony's PS3 recorded a massive week-on-week jump in sales during the week ended September 5, GfK Chart-Track has told Edge.
The increase follows the launch of the new PS3 Slim on Tuesday, September 1. According to a GfK Chart-Track spokesperson, the console outsold Microsoft's Xbox 360 by three units to one during the week in question. PS3 sales outpaced those of Nintendo's Wii and DS Lite by the same amount.

The 3-1 gap is made more impressive as the the slim is £50 more than the reduced Elite and 360 had a 4 day head start. For the record the price of the 360 Arcade went up in price to £159.99.
