The Xbox One X has enjoyed success in the UK, selling 80,000 in its first week.
This nearly matches the total sales of the Nintendo Switch during its first week in March. The X also outpaced PS4 Pro numbers from its launch week when it only hit 50,000. It took the PS4 Pro four weeks to reach the 80,000 mark in the UK.
However, both Sony and Nintendo were impacted by supply shortages, which dropped the possible number of sales.
Nevertheless, Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg was pleased and confirmed the number via Twitter:
This is no doubt a win for Microsoft to start off the Holiday season. It’s a much better result than Japan too.
