GameIndustry.biz - who revealed the latest hardware sales data from GFK Chart-Track - noted today that the Xbox One X sold 80,000 units (up-weighted by 20% from 67,000) during its launch week in the UK. This number is the same as the Nintendo Switch in the first two days of launch.
On paper the Xbox One X is more powerful, with a processor whose clock speed is marginally higher than that of the PS4 Pro. Both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 Pro sales were throttled at launch by stock shortages - an issue the Xbox One X doesn't appear to have been held back by. On average, the Xbox One X is the platform that maintains a higher resolution in most scenes, offering a level of detail overall higher. Majority of the Xbox One X units sold were the Project Scorpio limited edition versions. The best-selling Xbox One game of the week was Call of Duty: WWII, followed by Assassin's Creed Origins (which was promoted with the system), Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and the Forza duo: Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3.
With the release of the Xbox One X, we are getting 4K patches for multiple games and Destiny 2 is one of the games that will feature the One X enhancements. The PlayStation 4 Pro, which launched a year ago, took four weeks to reach the same number, with its launch week sales tallying up to 50,000 units. With Xbox traditionally seeing greater success in the USA, it will be interesting to see how the console fares across these markets in the weeks to come.
Last week Microsoft's latest video console, the Xbox One X, released across the globe - delivering a premium gaming experience in a high-end package.
