Whoa, PS4 Software Sales Are Swiftly Outpacing the Xbox One in the UK
Posted by Kell Andersen
Intense console rivalry may not be healthy or productive, but it sure can be a lot of fun – especially when you're on the winning side. We've known for a while that the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One in the UK, but it's been a week or two since we've had some fancy numbers to gloat about. PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara is on hand to save the day, though, bringing the world yet another astonishing Sony sales figure. Speaking at an event attended by Eurogamer.net this morning, the company bigwig postulated that the PS4 to Xbox One sales ratio in the UK currently sits at around 1.5:1.
While this figure may seem fairly insignificant at first, when you consider that we're talking about millions of units here, it quickly becomes clear how impressive it really is. With that said, we already knew that just about every living human bought one of Sony's next-gen systems, so this doesn't really come as too huge a surprise.
Interestingly, Gara also noted that this ratio is actually reversed from the last generation of consoles, which, again, isn't particularly surprising considering the PlayStation 3's slow start. What do you make of these astounding sales numbers? Do some complicated maths in the comments section below.
