Article is two days old, I wonder why our resident organic news stand has not posted this.
HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game?

Xbox one won one day, in one region.

Not much to celebrate but it's something I guess. Rejoice!

I love how the Fanboys instantly go into defence mode when presented with something that go against their narrative.

@SRV_God Please, show me where I said anything that would provoke that salty response?

It's nothing to celebrate and nothing to be negative about. It's a completely inconsequential piece of news that shouldn't provoke on overly positive or, especially, negative response. Though I suspect lots of trolling about why it doesn't count and how Sony winning in other areas is all that matters.

It's nice for Microsoft. The more consoles they sell the more software and live subscriptions (where the real money is made) can be sold. So good for them.

Nothing wrong with posting it. Xbox is making ground in the UK and it's great news for for the UK fan base that's growing. We shouldn't have to post on eggshells because of the massive Titanic level of insecurity the trolls have like the first poster that posted in here.

What I find beyond funny is if it was the Xbox coming in second it would've been posted hours after it went up.
Nothing comes out as you plan it out to be.

Return of the King, baby!

That site and data looks about as reliable as Vgchartz though, if not worse. What is their method and sample?

Spurred on by the interest in the X and some incredible deals on the One S, the One outsold the PS4. The One S was available with a game for £169.99 over the Black Friday weekend, substantially cheaper than the PS4 with a game (£199.99). The One S also had some discounts available in the run up to Black Friday, whereas Sony chose to focus on pushing PS VR rather than the PS4.

Much was made of Microsoft’s Xbox One X launching this year as a rival to the PS4 Pro. The One X can justifiably claim to be the most powerful console ever made. However, all the power in the world can only do so much against a £449.99 RRP which didn’t move more than £10 on Black Friday. In contrast, Sony dropped the Pro from £350 to £300 with at least two games bundled in.

The One X sold well, but nowhere near as well as the Pro. The fantastic deal Sony offered on their flagship console was too good to resist for many. However, there’s still plenty to be positive about the One X’s prospects given it was £150 more expensive than every other console on the market.

Interesting stuff...

Thanks for the link!

TC stop making fun of MS by highlighting them winning a single day of sales based on internet data. We know they have trouble selling their consoles, no need to rub it in :/
