It is being reported that some 530,000 PS4’s were sold in the UK since the system released in Europe on November 29th. This represents about 217 million euros in revenue. This is compared to the Xbox One which sold 364,000 units in 5 weeks (having a weeks head start over the PS4 in Europe).

This brings to an end the decline in the games market thanks to these sales and the sales of Grand Theft Auto 5 when it launched back in September.

While physical game sales declined by 3.3 percent this year, the digital market soared by 16 percent meaning it has overtaken physical for the first time in the history of the industry.

It’s a great time to be a gamer!
