PlayStation 4 UK Console Sales In 2013 Outpace Xbox One By 166,000

Posted on Thursday, January 2 @ 10:31:42 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Console sales figures for the UK are in, and in 2013 Sony's new console has come out on top, outselling Xbox One by a margin of 166,000 units.

According to ERA, PlayStation 4 sold 530,000 units in the region for the five weeks it was out, while Xbox One sold just 364,000 consoles. This shouldn't be all too surprising considering the strength the PlayStation brand traditionally has in the UK. I'm sure the $400 price didn't hurt either.

"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. Retailers will be working hard in 2014 to maintain the sales momentum of these two great new pieces of kit," Kim Bayley, ERA director general said.
