Some good news for Microsoft as it has been confirmed that the Xbox One outsold the PS4 last week, at least in the UK. According to an MCV source sales for the Xbox One rose 155%, though actual figures hadn’t been confirmed. Meanwhile the PS4 achieved an 80% sales spike, though again actual figures were not confirmed. The rise in sales could have been down to the price cuts and deals for both consoles, as well as the arrival of FIFA 15 which was the best selling game last week in the UK.
According to other figures FIFA 15 sold best on PS4 with 32% of physical sales, while the Xbox One following with 22%. The Xbox 360 version of the game managed to outsell the One’s sales, achieving 30% of sales. The PS3 sold the least with 15%. Overall though it is good to see both new gen consoles doing well, as this just allows for more developers to create games for either machine, which in turn means more of a variety for the gaming audience.
