According to figures released by the specialist retailer GAME, 5.1 million PS4 and Xbox One consoles have been sold in the UK and the PS4 outsold the Xbox One by around a million units in the UK. This figure is similar to ones released earlier this month from MCV which reported that PS4 had passed three million UK sales in January which, when combined with today's figures, suggests that around two million Xbox Ones may have been sold.
While this might appear bad, both consoles are well ahead of the sales figures they had when the war was between the PS3 and the Xbox 360. GAME said that there are 5.1m PS4/Xbox One sales versus 3.5m at the same point in the last generation. The figure means that the current installed-base of PS4 and Xbox One is roughly a third of Xbox 360/PS3's total, which GAME says has sold 14.5m units in the UK.
Worldwide PS4 sales passed 35.9m units in January. Earlier this year, EA thought Xbox One sales at around 19 million.
