Xbox One X surpasses PlayStation 4 Pro first-week sales in UK

Xbox One X surpasses PlayStation 4 Pro first-week sales in UK

The Xbox One X sold over 80,000 units in the United Kingdom, according to data shared by retailers to GamesIndustry.biz, a number which trounces the PS4 Pro's 50,000 units sold.

To begin with, Call of Duty: WWII looks great on both Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, offering a perfectly fluid gaming experience that keeps the 60fps fixed in every situation. By comparison, the original PS4 sold 250,000 over its launch weekend when it was first released, and the original Xbox One managed 150,000 in the same period.

Stock shortages of both PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch will have affected their sales performance. The gap nearly certainly won't close this generation, but it may yet narrow. There were a couple of predictions regarding the sales of the Xbox One X but it is too early to come to a conclusion. The best-selling Xbox One game of the week was Call of Duty: WWII, followed by Assassin's Creed Origins (which was promoted with the system), Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and the Forza duo: Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3.

Retailers note that the most popular version of the console was the special edition Project Scorpio variant. This puts the device's first week sales in line with the Nintendo Switch and ahead of Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro.

According to GfK Chart-Track's retail sales data, all four of the aforementioned games featured in the top five best-selling Xbox One games at retail last week. With Xbox traditionally seeing greater success in the USA, it will be interesting to see how the console fares across these markets in the weeks to come.

More than 70 games supported Xbox One X at launch, with that number set to increase each week.
