The PlayStation 4 has managed to outperform the Xbox One once again in the UK by achieving to gain more sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, according to GfK Chart-Track. The PlayStation 4 also managed to have the most amount of sales for last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 took a 48% share of all physical copies which were sold compared to the Xbox One’s 43%, leaving 5% in it between the two consoles. However 91% of all physical copies which were sold in the UK of Black Ops 3 were for current-gen consoles, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 only gaining 8% of the share as more people transfer over to the latest generation of consoles. That is an increase of 23% compared to last year where only 68% of copies sold were for either the PS4 or Xbox One.
Physical PC sales however performed considerably worse, leaving it with only 1% of the share, although virtually all PC sales would have been done digitally.
No official sales figures have yet been released by Activision, however they have stated previously that pre-orders of Black Ops 3 were higher than those for last year’s Advanced Warfare.
