PlayStation 4 and Xbox One show impressive sales figures

PS4 and Xbox One are both selling extremely well in the UK, although on this occasion it's Sony that has come out as the front runner.

PlayStation 4 sold 530,000 units in the UK in just five weeks, while Xbox One has sold 364,000 units since its launch, although it should be noted that both numbers are a lot higher than any previous console launch.

ERA director general Kim Bayley told MCV, “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.”

Currently it's quite hard to get hold of both console, although Xbox One appears to be slightly easier to find than PS4.

Do you own any of these consoles? What's your take on these figures?

Had a PS4 since launch and, after a false start with a DOA unit which was, thankfully, replaced in just 3 days, I absolutely love it. Interface is slick and dropping back to it in the middle of a game makes the PS3 look clunky and ridiculous.

Slightly easier to find is a bit of an understatement. It's instock pretty much everywhere, where the PS4 is out of stock everywhere.

It's great that both consoles are selling so well and I'm happy with my PS4 but now I want to see new games that really show what it can do. The launch line up was solid but nothing more, I want some proper next gen experiences now.
