Xbox One Tops UK Console Sales List For Second Straight Month

The Xbox One S is helping big time.

Posted By | On 01st, Nov. 2016 Under News


Xbox One S

While we all know the Xbox One has trailed the PS4 since the two consoles launched, Microsoft is making up ground now. While it’s still not winning the console wars, a new report shows the Xbox One S led all UK Sales among consoles for the second straight month.

Gameindustry.biz is reporting this is the first time Microsoft’s console has outsold the PS4 for two months in a row since the two consoles first launched. These kinds of numbers are underlined by comments from Microsoft that the Xbox One S is the fastest selling console in America.

Of course, that statement is a bit of a trick, since it’s also the newest. Still, Microsoft has gotten itself some momentum when it comes to the console wars. The real question now is whether or not the company can keep it going. If it can, then the battle between Microsoft and Sony is just getting started.

      Bought New Xbox One at Target Suspect it was Used? (self.xboxone)

      submitted 1 day ago * by Trickycoolj

      Bought my first Xbox One this weekend at Target with the cartwheel coupon. Got the BF1 bundle since my boyfriend said he’d trade me a game I actually want for the BF1 game. So I gave him the code this evening and it was already redeemed. Everything in box seemed factory sealed, had to cut the stickers on the outside, but I thought it was odd the controller had the batteries installed and the thumb sticks had that telltale grime in the ridges on top like they were used. Didn’t think anything of it until the BF1 code was used. Really pissed now. Who do I contact Microsoft or Target? Serves me right for buying the dang thing visiting relatives 3 hours away. AND I just started downloading my entire rock band catalog.

      EDIT 1: Called Microsoft when support opened up this morning. The BF1 code was redeemed 10/28. I bought the console 10/28 at 6pm and didn’t open the box until after driving home 10/29, boyfriend input the code 10/30 and got the error. Definitely was used out of the box. Starting to wonder if they swapped in a Used controller too.

      Called Target in Oregon where I purchased the Xbox. They assured me they don’t return electronics to the floor when returned. No electronics iPads, game systems, etc they all get sent back. I told them Microsoft says it was redeemed before I bought the system so clearly something is wrong here. Either an employee is sneaking the code out or they’re selling returned merch. She assured me they would exchange for a new system and to come on in. I said I was in the next state. She says to explain it to my nearest store they’ll gladly take care of it. I said I don’t particularly feel confident about that, it’s a city Target with lots of uniformed security they’re sticklers on returns. I asked if they could call Oregon if they needed verification she said they shouldn’t need to. I asked if she could look up the console and see if it was returned. (A consumerist article suggested they can look up S/N) she said no. Then hemmed and hawed and said she wasn’t sure maybe but probably not no. And policy states to send it back to the mfr if returned they never put stuff back out she works at the return desk. I said maybe they should consider retraining in that policy before Christmas. Glad I didn’t buy this for a gift.

      Called Target in Washington explained the situation to the store operator. They got me the manager. Manager was wowed that Oregon sold a return that’s against policy (greeeeat). I explained Microsoft could see the redemption of the code before I purchased the console and that the batteries were installed (engineering red flag batteries could leak if installed and ruin the device when not in use) the guy was like wow that’s crazy. He said they would absolutely exchange it and went to make sure they had the exact bundle and put it aside with my name and a note that it was an even exchange since he will probably be off work by the time I can get there after work. It’s Halloween it’s gonna be a madhouse. I’m not looking forward to it.

      Gotta go home and factory reset the console clean and pack it up before hitting up Target. I keep thinking I’m glad it was me and not an unsuspecting parent that put this thing in a closet for Christmas. Will try an update later.

      EDIT 2: just got home and reset the console to factory and packed it up. Sure enough the clear circle stickers on the opposite side of the box from what I opened are really dirty on the edges against the white box. This was opened with heat. The controller serial did match the serial on the controller wrapper so at least that matches. On my way to target. Hope I don’t run into mobs of people buying candy and costumes last minute.

      EDIT 3: props to my local Target and the sweet girl at customer service that had to get two people to figure out the cartwheel, wishbook and sales tax to make the exchange even. The supervisor/trainer had to make the tax 0.000001 or something like that to make it work. And the gentleman that I spoke to in the morning that was off for the day that made sure the note said “EVEN exchange” needs so many props. As for Tanasbourne Target in Beaverton Oregon, don’t ever buy electronics there, shop at local at Fred Meyer or Costco instead.

      And if ever someone from Microsoft stumbles on this thread for crying out loud you need tamper evident security seals on the Xbox One packaging especially those that have game codes inside!

      EDIT 4: opening the new console. Lots of obvious clues now. The green instruction slip was not on the top of the box when opening. The cables were only coiled with one plastic strap not two. The batteries are not in the controller. And the console itself is wrapped tight like a Christmas present not open on one side. Goes to show, unbox your new electronics when you’re wide awake. I should have noticed more of these.

      This type of scam happens a LOT with returned Xbox One consoles. So many people have complained about buying brand new sealed Xbox One consoles and finding Games/DLC have already been installed on the console when they open them, or new games are downloading and installing to the console that they themselves didn’t purchase. Used/ returned Xbox One consoles being repackaged and resold as ‘new’ is apparently a common thing. It sounds like retailers are getting tired of dealing with the massive loads of returned Xbox One inventory. The hilariousness of Xbox ownership continues. Slap yourself. You should of had a V8, and bought yourself a PS4 instead.

      Meanwhile, that stupid fool Starman that I replyed to ain’t saying a damn thing. He’s probably off somewhere checking his own Xbox out to make sure it wasn’t a returned console, or wondering why he keeps getting all these free game downloads. The funniest thing about it is that most people who complain in the Xbox forums that they are getting free games that they didn’t pay for are being told by the regular circlejerks to “quit complaining and just be happy they’re getting free games”. You idiots are buying returned electronics being resold as new. You Xbox people are truly “spethal”.

      Hence the 3.9 million PS4s shipped last quarter, Xgimp. Puts that 25k gap last month into perspective, doesn’t it?

    Wow that is one crazy desperate black man trying to get the attention he doesn’t get back home. The success the Xbox brand is having has him damage controlling in overtime. What a deplorable this man is no wonder he is like Trump, putting so much energy to try and persuade himself and everyone that he alone has made the right purchase. Pathetic and funny at the same time :’)

      Clean up the graphical errors in your post. You can do better than this. Have someone else type it for you next time. You’re far too emotional at the keyboard right now. Why copy and paste something on the same screen where the original post still exists? I commend you on your bravery though. Are you menstruating again?

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Aww the crazy black man thought he had anything relevant to tell me but just ended trying a little to hard and failed miserably. 2/10 for that drivel that you tried to pass as a smart comment.

    • crazy_black_man-

      You’re so pathetic.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Is that all or are you going to edit it because you need more time to think of something? LOL

      Go be mad in a corner kid. 🙂

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. You sound pretty pissed off.

      Xbox One needs better single player exclusives (self.xboxone)
      submitted an hour ago by ZKZakke

      I’m getting sick of multiplayer and co op games and would really like for Xbox to get a high quality single player game. ReCore was fun but not that great and Quantum Break blew chunks, so badly that it sold horribly and destroyed Remedy’s relationship with Microsoft
      I wish Xbox would get a single player caliber game like Zelda or Bayonetta 2 on Wii U, or TLOU or Bloodborne on PS4 But the issue is that Xbox gamers are too multiplayer centric. Xbox gamers love their multiplayer and co op games so much that single player games get neglected. Last gen was different though, Fable, Skyrim and Mass Effect were all huge successes on the Xbox 360

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Oh so you needed that time to, yet again, make another irrelevant comment by posting someone else opinion. Desperation at its finest.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Tell me, what would make you angrier, me acknowledging your angry responses or me ignoring you? I always want to do whatever pisses you off the most. Gotta love it. Good times man!

    • -youjustgotburned-

      You? make me angry? LOL Someones projecting their own anger on others. I just say it how it is and you come b*tching at me with weak irrelevant comments because you got nothing else to say. Sorry but I am not the sad f*ck who stalks Xbox gamer comments and attacks a piece of plastic as if it was a leaving thing. 🙂

    • crazy_black_man-

      Your spell check is horrible, but your constant need to use profanity tells me a few things about you. You actually ARE angry, and you can’t find the strength to contain your anger, while trying to express yourself intelligently. Of course this makes me very happy. I almost can’t wait to read what you’re gonna write next. Your angry text is the equivalent of a small child acting out, marking all over his parents walls in crayon.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Aww poor little crazy black man has nothing to say so he goes for the “grammar corrections” and “you are angry” card. You must use howtotryhard.com a lot LOL

      Man thanks for proving my point. You make it so easy to get under your skin.

      Well good day. 🙂
