PS4 outsells Xbox One in UK by a decent margin

To some it may come to as a shock, but Sony’s PS4 outsold the Xbox One by almost 166,000 units in the UK during 2013.
According to Chart-Track data obtained by the Entertainment Retailers Association, the PS4 sold 530,000 units throughout the region, while the Xbox One only managed to sell around 364,000 units.

Another interesting stat is that the Next-gen consoles have earned a combined £326m at UK retail, with PS4 hardware generating £181.8m, and Xbox One earning £144.5m.

Microsoft is believed to have sold more than 2 million units around the world, selling 111,111 units per day since making its debut on November 22.

ERA director Kim Bayley said that it was unfortunate that next-gen consoles arrived so late in the year.

“Games continues to deliver digital sales strongly, but it was disappointing that Xbox One and PS4 came so late in 2013 and then huge demand meant stock sold out quickly,” said Bayley.

“Retailers will be working hard in 2014 to maintain the sales momentum of these two great new pieces of kit.”
