A good start to the market is vital for Microsoft’s games division and the first reports after the Xbox Series X | S debut in the most important markets are delivering good news, at least from the perspective that it is exceeding what has been achieved by Xbox One years ago. In the case of the United Kingdom, a market lost by Xbox in the past generation, things have started well and the new consoles have already made history.
According to various reports, the debut of Xbox Series X | S in the United Kingdom has been a success and both consoles added 155,000 units sold in the first 24 hours, surpassing the 150,000 that Xbox One sold in its debut in 2013, so which is already the most successful console premiere for the brand in the region. According to the comparisons, the launch of Xbox Series X | S in this market could be considered as the third most successful, as it would only be below the debut of PS4, which is counted with 250,000 units in the first 48 hours and the launch of the PlayStation Portable, which sold 185,000 units in a single day, holding the record for the fastest-selling hardware in this market.
The great reception that Xbox Series X | S has had in the UK yielded interesting data, such as the fact that 2/3 of the purchases were Xbox Series X, while 1/3 chose or had no other option but to buy the Xbox Series S. Also, this great reception in one of the most important markets worldwide meant that both consoles were sold out, which is ultimately a success for Microsoft’s games division.
This information comes days after Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, confirmed that the debut of Xbox Series X | S is already the most successful for the brand, leaving behind what was achieved by Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Xbox Series X | S are now available and in this link you will find all the information related to the new generation of Xbox.
