And following a recent report from GamesIndustry.biz, it appeals the console lived up to expectations - reportedly selling 80,000 units in the UK.
Just how well the souped-up Xbox One X would sell minus any notable exclusive content had been the subject of much debate, but it seems that in the United Kingdom, at least, demand is very high. This is an impressive start considering the fact that Nintendo Switch sold this much unit in the first week when it launched in March 2017.
The PS4 has outsold the Xbox One globally by a ratio of about 2:1 as of early this year, but both the Xbox One S and Xbox One X gave notable boosts to Microsoft's console in the UK.
Beyond that, it was revealed that the Second World War inspired Call of Duty game, which launched last week, was the best-selling title on Xbox One, beating out games such Assassin's Creed Origins, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.
After the release on November 7th, there is a lot of curiosity to find out how the powerful Xbox One X came out the first week on sale.
How well did Xbox One X sold in the first week in the UK?
Even if you don't have a 4K TV or the new Xbox One X, Microsoft promises the hardware to work, running supersampling to show off the hardware's lifelike capabilities for graphics and sound, at least with insects like a ladybug. Well, the answer there remains in the negative - Xbox One X runs within a very similar 50-60fps window to the Pro version.
