    Xbox One UK sales spike but PS4 still in control

    Microsoft’s Xbox One has been the best-selling games console for four weeks in a row, MCV understands.

    The machine has benefited from a Ł30 price cut, while the launch of Titanfall last week caused a surge in console sales of 96 per cent.

    But retailers have told MCV that PS4 remains in control, and that Xbox’s recent success has been aided by shortages of Sony’s console.

    In fact, a fresh supply of PS4s last weekend caused a 72 per cent rise in sales.

    MCV understands that Sony is preparing to release extra stock into the trade for this Friday’s launch of Infamous: Second Son, which is PlayStation’s big hope for the quarter.

    Looks like Titanfall is doing its job over there.

    Titan Fall is only 1 title, it is not enough to save the Xbbox One.
    Wait for the 360 version to drop and see some real sales.

    To be expected. X1 will get a nice bump from this (probably a fairly large one). Question is......how long does it last?

    What source is the article based on? What numbers do they have ? Seems like they "understands" and can not show any numbers ?

    MCV is trade press. If you don't want to believe them you don't have to but you will find their numbers and articles throughout the UK games industry. I don't think they have ever been discredited, given they are writing to the people who already know most of this stuff.

    They wont say, obviously their sources don't want to get into to trouble for leaking sensitive information.
    Chart-track info is supposed to be only available to those that pay for it.
