Xbox One X Reportedly Outsells PS4 Pro, Matches Switch in UK DebutWeek

3.8
Today is Monday, so it’s time for some sales data from the land of Her Majesty, the United Kingdom. According to GFK Chart-Track, Call of Duty: WWII had an impressive week, retaining the top of the sales chart for the second week since its release.

“Its second week figure tops ‘Fifa 18s’ second week, making it the highest selling second week for a title of not only this year, but 2016 as well. ‘Fifa 18’ does climb one position into No2 this week (+0%), pushing Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ in the opposite direction down to No3 (-38%). EA’s new release ‘Need for Speed Payback’ debuts in at No4, one place below what its predecessor ‘Need for Speed’ did back in 2015. Sega have 2 new releases in the top 10 this week with ‘Sonic Forces’ debuting in at No5 and ‘Football Manager 2018’ in at No10. Elsewhere in the top 40 we have 2 more new releases in Microsoft’s ‘Super Lucky’s Tale’ in at No23 and EA’s ‘The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs’ at No27.”

If you’d like more details, you can also check out the full top-forty chart at the bottom of the post.

Interestingly, GamesIndustry also reports that according to data shared with the outlet by retailers, the Xbox One X debuted with over 80,000 units sold in its first week on the shelves. This is well above the PS4 Pro, that sold roughly 50,000 units in its debut week last year (and took four weeks to reach 80,000), and matches the first week of the Switch.

Of course, it remains to be seen how launch shortages affected the numbers of each console, but this is certainly a rather flattering number for the Xbox One X, considering the higher price point compared to its rivals.

RepBandit I find it pretty cool that the switch pulled the same amount of units

ODST Because people would rather read comments than the article. They referenced launch weeks.
PS4 Pro: 50,000 units
Xbox One X: 80,000 units
Nintendo Switch: 80,000 units
The funniest thing is that this is only for england. No other stats on the US or other countries. interested to see the numbers on a more global scale rather than nation because Xbone beat PS4 in sales in the US by a small margin back in 2013 on launch but PS4 outsold Xbone 3 to 1 globally in the same time frame.


Considering UK & EU are Sony's more dominant regions in terms of market share, one could make the assumption that the US performance will be similar. I wouldn't be surprised if it outsells globally during launch month. But hey, I'm no market analyst, that's just my opinion

Not surprised because everyone wants 4K

As i expected knew people would pay for the performance.

Not surprising, Xbox One X had the better marketing and most hype around it, and being a system that does native 4k makes it one of the most anticipated consoles this year.
