Despite terrible deals compared to last year and the xbox one the ps4 was victorious. The xbox second and then finally the switch.

I'm surprised Spyro is not higher on the UK list during Black Friday, considering how well Crash did over there.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Not surprising PS4 did best in the UK, but it is surprising that all the consoles did so narrowly close to each other though. Looks like Switch had a great Black Friday in what is generally one of it's worst markets. All it really had going for it was £30 off in some places online like Amazon for a while, and only £20 off at GAME.



If PS4 was narrowly ahead of XBO, XBO was narrowly ahead of Switch, and the total sales between the 3 were 300k, then we're looking at gaps of probably 30k at the most.

So:
PS4: 130k
XBO: 100k
NS: 70k

Even under this extremely conservative estimate for Switch, that would still be a 226% increase over what VGChartz thinks Swtich sold last Black Friday in the UK.

Xbox was almost free and still couldn't win in the UK, jezz.

Monster Switch performance though at that price, WW numbers must be ridiculous for Switch & Ps4 and pretty lackluster for Xbox.

If the numbers really were that low in the UK for the Switch last year, definitely a huge win for the system.



Nice win again for PS4.



Playing right now : Batman Arkham Knight (PC), Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (PC), Alien Isolation (PC).

This article is a little weird. It says PS4 DOMINATES hardware sales....then says JUST ahead of XB1 lol. Like isn't that contradicting itself lol. Anywho...

PS4 was as expected despite the XB1 having MUCH better deals if I am not mistaken. Switch did very well and should be up YoY.

It is nice to see all 3 so close!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

XBO was almost free?
