News from this week’s UK charts suggest that the Xbox One launch games fared well in its first week on sale. But perhaps the biggest news is that, according to MCV, Xbox One sales are due to overtake the Wii U’s lifetime sales in the UK. Chart-Track this morning detailed that the next-gen console doubled the number of units sold from the Xbox 360’s launch week. An unnamed source told MCV that 150,000 Xbox One units were sold within a 48-hour period in the UK and that the console was just a “few thousand units short of beating the Wii U’s total sales”.
Microsoft claimed on Saturday that worldwide sales totalled over a million units in just 24 hours. The Wii U’s worldwide lifetime sales stands at 3.91 million, according to the Q2 financial results. Let us know what you think of this news in the comments below.
