We reported a while back that the PS4 had been outselling the Xbox at a rate of over 3:1 in Europe, this gap has been decreased to nearly 2:1 . This is despite the fact that the Xbox One has been delayed until Q3 in major European countries, which is certainly good news for Xbox One fans.
As you can see, the only console that is showing growth is the Xbox One. This may be the Titanfall effect but Infamous is released soon too and PS4 sales are falling dramatically. The Xbox One is now distancing itself from the Wii U despite the recent release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
The recently released Titanfall will undoubtedly be a hit in the UK, with plenty of marketing and with the territory being known for its love of FPS games. This being confirmed as Titanfall has leaped in to pole position in pre-order charts in the UK and currently sits at number 1 in the Amazon UK charts despite the supposedly ‘huge’ gap between the two systems sales. The gap is inevitably going to get much closer in the coming weeks and by the time the Xbox One is released in all of Europe then the stories of ‘certain failure’ could cease.
The initial gap that the PS4 has claimed is a big one but not one which can’t be caught. With recent news of price cuts for the Xbox One the race for top console is heating up and is going to be a much closer run race than first expected.
