Amazon predicts Xbox One will claim consoles sales record... and then be beaten by PS4

Publish date:

Xbox One will become the biggest and fastest selling console ever when it is released on November 22nd, Amazon has predicted.

The retailer adds, however, that it will be overtaken by Sony's PS4 just a week later. PS4 is currently top of Amazon UK's PC and video games pre-order charts, with Xbox One in fifth.

The operation to deliver a new Xbox or PlayStation to Amazon customers on release day is well underway,” Amazon Europe VP Xavier Garambois stated.

The pre-orders we have seen for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 show that gamers across the UK are eager to be amongst the first to try out the latest gaming experience, and the much-anticipated release of these next generation consoles is guaranteed to lead to hours of gaming pleasure.

Also a favourite for Christmas lists in 2013, we can expect these consoles to be keeping children and adults alike entertained on Christmas day and into 2014.”
