The Entertainment Retailers Association has issued a report detailing the sales of the PlayStation 4 in the United Kingdom, and the results are in: the PlayStation 4 still reigns supreme.
According to the ERA, The PlayStation has sold 530,000 units in the United Kingdom since launch, compared to the Xbox One's 364,000 units. Sony generated £181.8 million in sales while Microsoft managed to generate £144.5 million, with the smaller gap in profits coming from the Xbox One costing more than the PlayStation 4.
ERA Director Kim Bayley issued a statement on the sales, while at the same time issuing a subtle jab at each system:
"Games continues to deliver digital sales strongly, but it was disappointing that Xbox One and PS4 came so late in 2013 and then huge demand meant stock sold out quickly. Retailers will be working hard in 2014 to maintain the sales momentum of these two great new pieces of kit.”
Will we see the PlayStation 4 continue to dominate the Xbox One in 2014? Let us know in the comments, PS4 Experts readers!
