Xbox One X hits 80,000 United Kingdom sales in first week

Xbox One X hits 80,000 United Kingdom sales in first week

Microsoft's powerful Xbox One X console has sold 80,000 units during its first week on sale in the UK.

Of course, stock shortages of both PS4 Pro and Switch will have impacted the performance of those machines.

It appears the Xbox One X is off to a strong start in the United Kingdom, outselling its closest competitor during its respective launch week. 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.

Beyond that, it was revealed that the Second World War inspired Call of Duty game, which launched last week, was the best-selling title on Xbox One, beating out games such Assassin's Creed Origins, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18. You'll also see adaptive 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and 4K on the Xbox One X.

According to GfK Chart-Track's retail sales data, all four of the aforementioned games featured in the top five best-selling Xbox One games at retail last week.

The figures have also revealed that the Project Scorpio edition of the console achieved the most sales, while Call of Duty: WW2 was the top-selling Xbox One game in the new console's launch week. With Xbox traditionally seeing greater success in the US, it will be interesting to see how the console fares across these markets in the weeks to come.

With the Xbox One having received very little in the way of exclusives this year, it's somewhat surprising that it has performed so well in the region.

More than 70 games supported Xbox One X at launch, with that number set to increase each week.
