When Microsoft announced its new generation, it presented 2 console models, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.

Xbox has begun to stand out in a market dominated by Nintendo and PlayStation in recent years, the United Kingdom, according to the console sales report carried out by GfK and shared by Gamesindustry.biz. To begin with, it was confirmed that the total sales of the Xbox Series X | S have already exceeded one million units sold in this market, thanks to the momentum that both consoles had during December 2021, which was 108% and which was also seen buoyed by a major Xbox Series X restock.

These figures allowed Xbox Series X | S to rise to second place in sales, leaving Nintendo Switch in the first position – an unrivaled console in the United Kingdom for years – and sending the PS5 to third position, a fact that stands out in a market that had been reluctant to adopt Microsoft’s gaming proposal.
