Xbox One X smash PlayStation Pro sales numbers in UK

Share

On paper the Xbox One X is more powerful, with a processor whose clock speed is marginally higher than that of the PS4 Pro.

In terms of games, Call of Duty: WWII was the best selling game on Xbox One X in the first week, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Origins was in second place, followed by Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, Forza 7 and Forza Horizon 3. Achieving significant advancements in graphical processing power, the console debuted as the most powerful on the market, pushing 4K resolutions, HDR content and other visual enhancements. And following a recent report from GamesIndustry.biz, it appeals the console lived up to expectations - reportedly selling 80,000 units in the UK. The figure is equal to the number of Switch consoles Nintendo sold when the console launched in March.

Retailers have shared the data that reveal that Microsoft's Xbox One X is well ahead of the PS4 Pro sales during its first week which did just a little over 50,000 back in November.

GamesIndustry.biz has contacted major United Kingdom retailers to find out more about Xbox One X's launch sales in the England: as reported, the Microsoft console has sold about 80000 units in the first week of presence on the market from 7 to 12 November.


The figures have also revealed that the Project Scorpio edition of the console achieved the most sales, while Call of Duty: WW2 was the top-selling Xbox One game in the new console's launch week.

While the Xbox One X has been criticised for its first-party lineup and premium price tag, it appears this has detracted from the console's appeal - at least in the UK.
