Xbox One X hits 80,000 United Kingdom sales in first week

However in the graphics department, this is where the Xbox One X has the lead with more TFLOPS and also more memory with 12GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the PS4 Pro's 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. On average, the Xbox One X is the platform that maintains a higher resolution in most scenes, offering a level of detail overall higher.

As reported by Gamesindustrybiz, UK retailers have now revealed first week numbers across the region, which tallies to 80,000 units sold. And following a recent report from GamesIndustry.biz, it appeals the console lived up to expectations - reportedly selling 80,000 units in the UK.

It's first week sales are also well ahead of PS4 Pro, which did a little over 50,000 back in November 2016. A year ago the publication reported that the PS4 sold 50,000 units during its launch week, managing to sell a further 30,000 units after four weeks on sale.

While the Xbox One X has been criticised for its first-party lineup and premium price tag, it appears this has detracted from the console's appeal - at least in the UK.


Given that the Xbox One X did not launch with a new game created to show it off at its best, these sales are impressive for a mid-generation update.

Xbox One X lives up to its billing as "the world's most powerful console", impressively improving the performance of all games on the system, and able to run many that choose to support it in 4K resolution and at a smooth 60 frames per second.

The folks at Digital Foundry attempt to find that out by comparing the graphics of both consoles using Sledgehammer's recently-released Call of Duty: WWII, which you can check out for yourself in the video above. Did you pick up an Xbox One X during launch week?
