Sony sent us baked goodies today in celebration of selling five million PlayStation 3s here in the UK.

PS3 Cake

Following last month's PS3 Super Slim launch, the Japanese firm enjoyed a huge jump in sales and this week surpassed the 5m mark in Blighty, a figure confirmed by GfK Chart-Track.

A second Super Slim edition with a 12GB capacity is set for release this Friday.

Bravo, Sony. With world telly sales so stale, the PS3 is going to remain your bread and butter. And reaching such a milestone is no piece of cake. Your gift was, though. Nomnomnom. ®
