Amazon UK Discusses Huge Gap Between Xbox One and PS4

Last Updated: February 5, 2014


The PS4 has been doing much better than its competitor in the United Kingdom, to the point where Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition sold over twice as many PS4 copies as Xbox One copies in the UK.

Ketu Patel, who is the category leader for video games and software at Amazon UK, has said the gap between the two consoles is pretty big. When it comes to the consoles themselves, he added that the PS4 is the number one bestseller, and the Xbox One is in the top five.

He feels Titanfall’s exclusivity will boost the Xbox One’s sales and narrow the gap, but he didn’t sound convinced that it would close the gap entirely.

We can’t be sure why the PS4 is so much more popular than the Xbox One in the UK—is it the game selection? the technical specs?—but it’s definitely a noteworthy trend.
