Over 3M PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Sold in UK, Says GAME
GAME, a UK based retailer is quite popular among the gamers in the region. Recently, they published their half year results for the financial year 2014/15 to boast of all that they have achieved over the course of the last six months.
However, that was not the only thing they shared.
According too figures provided by their financial reports, the latest generation of consoles, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have managed to sell over three million units combined in the United Kingdom!
While they were not discussing the sales of latest generation consoles in specific (only their own performance in relation to them), they did reveal a bit about them in this sentence:
The intense promotional activity seen over our peak period drove rapid consumer adoption of the latest generation of consoles, with the installed base of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners in the UK reaching over three million units by the end of January, significantly ahead of our expectations.
However, that figure represents both consoles and doesn’t answer the one burning question that diehard fans of both Microsoft and Sony ask i.e. which one sold more?
We might not have the exact figures but we can estimate. It was back in November 2014 when the Xbox One reached one million in sales. Whereas PlayStation 4 had reached the same figure in September 2014.
With around three months’ gap between the feats, the mathematician in me suggests that the difference between their sales could be anywhere between 0.2 million and 0.5 million with PlayStation 4 taking the lead.
So what do you say, is that in line with the performance of the consoles?
