Xbox One best-selling console in UK for four weeks, but PS4 remains in control – report

Xbox One is the best-selling console four weeks running, according to a report on MCV. Sales are up due to three factors: shortages of PlayStation 4, a £30 price cut, and the release of Titanfall – the latter of which helped Xbox One sales increase by 96%. Despite the recent increase in sales, Sony’s PlayStation 4 is still “in control,” according to retailers, and next week’s figures may tell a different tale with a replenishment in stock. A new PS4 shipment arrived last weekend, giving the console a 72% boost in sales. MCV was informed extra stock of the console would land in stores in time for infamous: Second Son’s release – which was yesterday.
