The PS3 and PSP have passed a new sales milestone in the U.K.
Sony Computer Entertainment U.K. head Ray Maguire tells trade paper MCV that the home and handheld consoles have sold over 2 million and 3 million units in the region, respectively.
The announcement comes after the late February release of the highly-anticipated PS3 exclusive first-person shooter, Killzone 2.
"[Killzone 2] certainly has helped drive hardware," Maguire said. "I think there were a lot of people out there who wanted something which really showed the power of PlayStation 3 – and now they can see a reason for them to get on board," Maguire said.
He also surmised that the PS3's sales performance in relation to its higher price tag "suggests more longevity of the PS3 because we have chipped away at the top end of the triangle."
Sony announced that the PSP passed the 50 million unit sold-in mark earlier this year. The company has big plans for the handheld, having announced major franchises for the platform in 2009, including Rock Band, Assassin's Creed and MotorStorm.
