Black Friday week is biggest for PS4 hardware sales since console launch

Pokémon Sun and Moon combined sales top chart.

More PlayStation 4 consoles were sold in the UK last week than at any point since the system's November 2013 launch.


The reason? Black Friday and its surrounding days of deals.

Black Friday week in 2015 previously held this record. Presumably this year's new PS4 slim and Pro models helped push demand even higher.

There's no mention of how Xbox One performed, although since the launch of Xbox One S it has seen its numbers soar.

On the software side, Pokémon Sun and Moon entered the chart in third and fourth places behind FIFA 17 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Combined, however, Sun and Moon sales would have topped the chart.

We're still waiting for the full top 10 but will add it here shortly.

  • FIFA 17
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Pokémon Sun
  • Pokémon Moon
  • Battlefield 1
  • Watch Dogs 2
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Gears of War 4
