Sony: PS4 Outpacing Xbox One Three-to-One in Spain

PS4 sales are outpacing Xbox One sales in Spain, according to PlayStation Spain and Portugal CEO James Armstrong. Armstrong claims that the PS4 is outselling Xbox One by more than three units to one. The console has sold about 80,000 units in Spain since the European PS4 release date of November 29, he also claims. Armstrong said that the company is working hard to fulfill another 12,000 – 15,000 pre-orders that have yet to be met due to supply constraints.

The PS4 debuted in North America on November 15. On Dec. 3, Sony said that worldwide PS4 sales stood at right around 2.1 million.

We expect to see just who won over the holiday shopping crowd sometime in January (or perhaps a little sooner), but right now it looks like both consoles are doing pretty well by all accounts.

    Could be :)
    I just thought it was hilarious.. nearly mid afternoon and almost 20 Xbones right there in the middle of the isle.. I couldn't resist getting a picture of it. Have yet to spot a single PS4 even in the usual place i'd find new releases hidden away (Few ever think to look in K-Mart around here usually)

    Hi GrimCW,

    Perhaps to a lesser minority extent those potential Xbox One buyers. May have heard of the technical difficulties even if its just affecting a small percentage of new buyers. And, just the perception of that negative trend are buying PS4's instead.

    I think it applies here too.. Walked into Wal Mart today.. almost  20 or so XBones sitting on a shelf in the MIDDLE OF THE ISLE.. mostly untouched..

    just sitting there.. no one was even glancing at them!

    This was about 2PM or so btw.. so plenty of time for crowds (not that theres ever not a crowd this season)

    And not a PS4 in sight… Not for over a month (excluding maybe 3 they had on black friday just to keep with the advertisment..)…

    Hi Guys,

    One thing to consider is that Spain is experiencing economic depression level difficulties. So the price difference between the PS4 and the Xbox One probably is having a greater impact in Spain. I wonder if the same trend is happening in: Greece, Italy, Ireland, Cyprus, and Portugal? Since those European countries were the hardest hit economically experiencing depression's.
