According to industry analyst GamesIndustry.biz, the Xbox One X sold over 80,000 units in its first week, selling more in one week than the 50,000 consoles the PlayStation 4 Pro sold in November 2016, its own launch month. This puts the device's first week sales in line with the Nintendo Switch and ahead of Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro.

In terms of games, Call of Duty: WWII was the best selling game on Xbox One X in the first week, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Origins was in second place, followed by Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, Forza 7 and Forza Horizon 3. They seem to have got the start they wanted with the Xbox One X. It would be interesting to see how things go from here for Xbox One X.


While the Xbox One X has been criticised for its first-party lineup and premium price tag, it appears this has detracted from the console's appeal - at least in the UK. This puts the Xbox One X in a seemingly much stronger position for its initial debut, with a majority of these sales attributed to preorders of the limited-run "Project Scorpio" variant.

The folks at Digital Foundry attempt to find that out by comparing the graphics of both consoles using Sledgehammer's recently-released Call of Duty: WWII, which you can check out for yourself in the video above.


It is more than likely that this bundle will be restocked in the upcoming weeks in order to compete with the Xbox One X. You still need to buy games on the Xbox One X in order to take advantage of the superior hardware that it has to offer.
