Xbox One Reportedly Reaches 1 Million Units Sold in UK

By   /   Nov 20, 2014

Xbox One has managed to sell one million units in the UK, having outsold the PlayStation 4 for three weeks in a row.

MCV UK reports that various retailers in the region have confirmed how the new price cuts have attracted a large populace to help Microsoft break the one million barrier. In addition to attractively priced bundles, the Xbox One also had a slew of recent releases that went perfect with its recent offers – Sunset Overdrive, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

“We’re seeing fantastic momentum with Xbox One having sold almost 10 million units to retailers worldwide,” said Xbox UK marketing director Harvey Eagle.

“We have an excellent line up of games to look forward to in 2015, including Quantum Break, Fable Legends and of course Halo 5: Guardians. With some great deals to be had on the high street, now really is the best time to be an Xbox One owner.”

Its competitor, the PlayStation 4, reached the same figure back in September. Many predict the Xbox One to close out the gap eventually in 2015 with what Microsoft is teasing to be an action packed year.

Now we’ll see if the console can manage to maintain its new found momentum without its price cuts.

As far as the official figures are concerned, I believe that Microsoft is waiting for the holiday season to be over so that they are close enough to Sony in terms of sales before going public.
