PS5 sales were absolutely enormous last month, with 900,000 consoles being sold in the UK alone, a new report has revealed.
The PS5 albsolutely smashed XBox Series X sales which slipped into third place behind the Nintendo Switch, according to GamesIndustry.biz.
It is unclear how much stock availability has affected the new XBox’s performance, although it seems likely to have played a significant role.
The news comes as thousands of Christmas Playstation 5 orders were cancelled by Very after they were made via a third party.
The orders were placed through Crep Chief Notify, a business which charges members £30 a month to send them alerts when consoles become available.
The group claimed last month that it had exploited a link to make high-volume orders from Very for the Series X and PS5 for its members.
But Very was alerted to the practice and had no choice but to cancel the orders as the level of stock simply wasn’t available, a spokesperson told Sky News.”
