Xbox One sold more than PS4 last week in the UK - report

Xbox One has outsold PlayStation 4 for the past week, according to a retail source.

xbox price cut

A report on MCVUK cites an anonymous retail source in saying that Xbox One hardware sales climbed 155% week-on-week.

PlayStation 4 saw an increase in sales as well, an 80% increase according to the source.

Presumably the jump is a result of last week's price cut, and the release of FIFA 15, which is mostly associated with the Xbox brand in advertisements.

Something which Sony was well aware of when it too offered a similarly-priced bundle, which surely also helped the jump in PS4 sales.
