Xbox One X First Week Sales In UK Beat The PS4 Pro And Match The Nintendo Switch

The Xbox One X is out now and in the first five days since launch, more than 80,000 units have been sold in the UK. This number is the same as the Nintendo Switch in the first two days of launch. It should be noted that the Xbox One X sales are higher than the PS4 Pro that only sold 50,000 units in the first 5 days and it took the PS4 Pro 4 weeks to get to 80,000 units.

Shortage of Nintendo Switch and PS4 Pro units also had a part to play in all this but we can see that the Xbox One X is off to a good start. There were a couple of predictions regarding the sales of the Xbox One X but it is too early to come to a conclusion. Majority of the Xbox One X units sold were the Project Scorpio limited edition versions.

The best selling games for the Xbox One were Call of Duty: WWII, followed by Assassin’s Creed Origins, FIFA 18 and the Forza duo: Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3.

With the release of the Xbox One X, we are getting 4K patches for multiple games and Destiny 2 is one of the games that will feature the One X enhancements. The update is as follows:

On December 5, along with the launch of Curse of Osiris and Season Two, we’ll be deploying an update to Destiny 2 that will deliver stunning gameplay with high dynamic range (HDR) lighting to these new consoles. You’ll also see adaptive 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and 4K on the Xbox One X.

Destiny 2 runs great on PC and other consoles and it will be interesting to see how well the game runs on the One X.

Let us know what you think about the Xbox One X and whether or not you are getting the new Microsoft console.
