Total UK console installed base is...

Note: includes DS and PSP.

How many consoles from this generation have now been sold around the UK? Answer: 32.4 million.

That covers everything from PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 to DS and PSP. The number was found buried within a meaty GAME financial paper.

Chart-Track, data-tracker and publisher of the results, didn't break down the number by platform. But we can assume that Nintendo's consoles dominate the pile, Xbox 360 is sandwiched somewhere in the middle and Sony's machines snap at heels from the rear.

The new total (based on sales ending 4th December 2011) signifies a 5.2 million bump on last year's lump sum. That's the slowest growth for a couple of years, but with Kinect and Move out and 3DS on the horizon, 2011 could set about rectifying that. Similarly, if Nintendo chose to dock the price of Wii, sales may once more shoot through the roof.
