Xbox One S

People are buying more Xbox Ones than any other console

People in the UK bought more Xbox Ones than any other games console in October, new research has revealed.

Figures from leading market research company GfK Entertainment revealed that Microsoft’s console was the best-selling product of its kind for the second consecutive month.

Microsoft has launched a range of Xbox One S bundles in recent weeks following the release of the hi-tech console.


Harvey Eagle, Xbox UK Marketing Director, said: “It’s great to see such enthusiasm for the new Xbox One S, as well as the range of exclusive bundles including FIFA 17, Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1 and now – for the first time – Minecraft. All of which are available to purchase now.

“The Xbox One S is the only console available with built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and HDR for gaming and video. Couple this with fantastic value for money and acclaimed blockbuster games including Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4, and the imminent Dead Rising 4, and there has never been a better time to own an Xbox One.”
