Xbox One X Sells 80000 in the UK During First Week

Postado Novembro 14, 2017

According to GamesIndustry.biz, retailers in the United Kingdom have shared data which have revealed that week-one sales of the Xbox One X, which launched on Tuesday 7, 2017, have hit the 80,000 mark.

As it turns out, the Xbox One X is off to a pretty decent start, at least in Europe.

That's roughly the same amount as the Nintendo Switch in March, and 30,000 more than the PS4 Pro during the same period. Speaking of, the Xbox One X United Kingdom sales data completely thrashes that of Sony's mid-gen console, which took four whole weeks to reach the same sales figure after it launched in November, 2016. The new console of Microsoft has 6 teraflops of power, an AMD processor of 8 cores at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, 4K Blu-Ray player, Dolby Atmos sound and full 4K game compatibility.

Although Microsoft hasn't released sales figures for the console, Aaron Greenberg (Head of Xbox Games Marketing Head) took to Twitter to confirm the reported results.

The PC-like Xbox One X is also considered to be more of an upgrade over its predecessor than the PS4 Pro.

Microsoft has announced its 2017 Black Friday deals, including the lowest price ever on the Xbox One S console. That's why we're seeing both Sony and Microsoft drop the prices of their consoles.

Xbox One S bundles will also be included in the deal and you can save up $50 off any 500 GB or 1 TB bundle starting the 19th through the 27th.

Microsoft's claim that the console is worth it on old, 1080p TVs is also true - however, the difference in loading times and slight performance increases perhaps isn't worth the money to grab yourself the console. A process that might only see fruit in many years to come.
