It was a hard fought battle, though.

Black Friday may be more of an American thing than a British thing, but Black Friday discounts and promotions have become a pretty regular thing in the UK over the last few years as well. It lines up really well with the Christmas shopping season, so it does make sense.

This Black Friday saw some good promotions for both, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in the UK, and in the end, both consoles ended up doing pretty well. However, for the regular console warrior, the news here is that the PS4 managed to beat out the Xbox One… but only just. The PS4 managed to eke out 139,000 units sold over Black Friday, while the Xbox One sold 134,000 units.

The Wii U, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii collectively managed to sell 42,000 units. Which really isn’t a whole lot. It seems like the UK is strictly PS4/Xbox One territory for now.

    • Mattia Milani

      Tell me, what exclusive games can you play now on ps4 ? 🙂

    • kevin

      Let’s see until dawn, tearaway unfolded, uc collection, MLB the show, bloodborne, dragon quest heroes, tales of zestiria, talos principle I could go on

    • Mattia Milani

      Valid titles ? Until Dawn finished 1 month ago, same for the UC Collection, Bloodborne, well no way I’m gonna spend my money for a copy and past of Dark Souls

    • kevin

      Lol goes to show what a fanboy you are because while bloodborne Def has the blueprint of a souls game it’s more then different enough that it isn’t even close to being a copy and paste of a souls game.

  • d0x360

    Shouldn’t that headline say BARELY beats? Hype is driving Sony and clearly its starting to run out. Sony needs to step up their game quickly If they want to keep posting good numbers.

    This race has just begun.

    • Mr Xrat

      You keep saying that. It never happens.

  • Mr Xrat

    So MS’ crutch for the rest of the year being a flop falls through as well. Interesting.

  • Gamez Rule

    Was anyone shocked in knowing that PS4 would sell more than Xbone ☺

    PS4 is going from strength to strength and no matter how you look at it overall it outsold Xbone. I’m still waiting for the *overall sales figures for the Xbox One to consumers* as we know that PS4 sold over 30 million to consumers so far and don’t mind sharing.
