Past year the publication reported that the PS4 sold 50,000 units during its launch week, managing to sell a further 30,000 units after four weeks on sale.

GamesIndustry.biz has revealed that the Xbox One X sold over 80,000 units in the United Kingdom in its first week of sales, beating the PS4 Pro sales and matching the Switch's launch. Indeed, it took PS4 Pro four weeks to reach the same number.

After launching earlier this month, the Xbox One X has been quite popular with many retailers selling out at a near-constant clip. Stock shortages of both PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch will have affected their sales performance.

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. Other new releases including Need for Speed Payback and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus also featured.

Leading up to release of Xbox One X we released a ton of videos showcasing the consoles power, especially with the 360 back compat games.

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.

In many ways, Xbox One X is the culmination of years of trying to fix the Xbox brand.

In short - this is a great news for Team Xbox at Microsoft and Xbox fans.
