Xbox One Sales Nearly Double In UK Following Titanfall Release
In week to week sales, the Xbox One sold 96% more consoles in the week of Titanfall‘s launch than in the previous week. Titanfall understandably takes the top sales spot in the UK, knocking Dark Souls 2 out and even passing FIFA 14 for the most copies sold in 2014.
The likely culprit for the massive increase in hardware sales is the 399 GBP Xbox One Titanfall bundle, which accounted for more than 70 percent of the Xbox One hardware sold during the week.
Microsoft has also said recently that hundreds of thousands in the US have played the game since Tuesday’s launch. The game has received rave reviews, scoring a Metascore of 89 on PC, leading all other PC games. The Xbox One version scored an 86, following only FIFA 14, and tied with Tomb Raider and NBA 2K14.
The Xbox 360 version is set to release March 28, and has been defended by Microsoft as a “first class experience.”
