September 19, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Destiny’s launch last week not only helped PlayStation 4 sales in North America and Japan, but it also gave the system its biggest week of 2014 in the UK.

This news comes from MCV, who reports that a “senior industry source quoting Chart-Track data” told them that PS4 hardware sales rose 300% week-over-week in the UK after the launch of Destiny. While specific sales numbers weren’t shared, the source revealed that it was the biggest week for the PS4 so far in 2014.

In comparison, PS4 hardware outsold Xbox One hardware 2:1 during Destiny launch week, with the Xbox One seeing a sales boost thanks to Destiny and a low price.

As well, PS3 hardware beat Xbox 360 hardware, which is against the norm.

Do you think Destiny will be the highest-selling PS4 game in the UK for 2014?
