Xbox One X first week sales equal those of Nintendo Switch

No Official Xbox One X Bundles Will Be Released This Holiday

GamesIndustry.biz has contacted major United Kingdom retailers to find out more about Xbox One X's launch sales in the England: as reported, the Microsoft console has sold about 80000 units in the first week of presence on the market from 7 to 12 November.

Given that the Xbox One X did not launch with a new game created to show it off at its best, these sales are impressive for a mid-generation update. This puts the device's first week sales in line with the Nintendo Switch and ahead of Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro.

A gamer asked Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg on Twitter if the Xbox One X will have bundles including games such as Destiny 2, LA Noir and more.

If you are upgrading from an older console then this is plenty to keep you engaged for months and keeping in mind that the bundle costs the same as the Xbox One X, you can already sense the appeal that it has to offer customers that are going to be making the choice between the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro.

Beyond that, it was revealed that the Second World War inspired Call of Duty game, which launched last week, was the best-selling title on Xbox One, beating out games such Assassin's Creed Origins, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.

The figures have also revealed that the Project Scorpio edition of the console achieved the most sales, while Call of Duty: WW2 was the top-selling Xbox One game in the new console's launch week.

Microsoft's original Xbox One was released in late 2013 alongside Sony's PS4, which it quickly fell behind in terms of sales thanks to the console's disastrous unveiling and the company's decision to back-peddle on a number of key decisions it had made.

Due to its large £450 price tag it's unlikely Xbox One X will continue to sell well like Nintendo Switch did, but the week one figures are still a strong start for Microsoft.
