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.

Think I read the XB1 was 160£, and the PS4 was 230£ (its like a 199$ XB1 vs a 300$ PS4, in USD).
Thats a pretty big price differnce, and the UK is one of the markets where the xbox does well.

PS4 still won.

It's actually a pretty significant win for the Playstation brand over xbox in its second strongest market. Sony have really just proved that even at a much lower price xbox has less value to the average consumer.

What were these crazy Xbox deals everyone was talking about?



Ouch @ Battlefield 5 for being outsold in its first week by the competition which was in its 7th week there.

I guess the usual stuff, like they do here in Germany all the time. 199,- with three of four games.

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.

Xbox is literally in a perpetual state of discounts/sales. It may vary from deals with specific retailers, to region, to more all encompassing rebates, but IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS happening on some significant level. I remember posting over 2 years ago, that I wish somebody was tracking the frequency of such events, and since then, it hasn't let up at all. 

- edit. I took out my juicy shot. It was so juicy. I wish I was eating it right now.

Well damn!

Microsoft could do so much better simply by working on its image in Europe.  They should not be losing so bad with prices so low.

This Black Friday they had Xbox One S 1TB bundles for 166€. And yet they are still losing in Germany 5:1 to the PS4.

Cheapest I can find atm is 166,- Euros (includes tax) for a 1TB X1S with Forza Horizon 4. At Saturn Germany, if someone is interested.

Or X1X 1TB with Fallout 76 for 374,-

 

Sale numbers are 4:1 in favour of PS4 over here, last I looked.

Oh it’s 5:1 now? Last I looked it was still 4:1. But yeah, makes sense after this year and Spider-Man.

It’s getting to that ratio. According to VGC this year to date ratio is 4,4:1
