According to website MCVUK, overall PS4 sales tripled for the week ending Saturday, November 12th.
The sales data originates from UK sales tracking firm GFK.
The release of the PS4 Pro last week helped boost PS4 console sales by 204% in the UK.
That’s according to GfK hardware data seen by MCV for the week ending Saturday, November 12th, which says that overall PlayStation 4 sales rose 204 per cent week-on-week.
Of total PS4 sales for this period, 65 per cent of them were PlayStation 4 Pro. Sales of the original PlayStation 4 models – launch and slim – rose 8.5 per cent week-on-week.
Total PS4 sales were 44 percent higher than Xbox Ones, with Sony’s console claiming a 53 per cent share of the hardware market.
Microsoft’s machine took a 37 per cent slice.
It was a good sales period for Microsoft also, with the Xbox One seeing an 85 per cent jump week-over-week.
This will in part be due to the platform holder cutting the price of original Xbox One models.
