According to a recent tweet from MCV editor Chris Dring, both Microsoft and Sony saw a significant rise in hardware sales, namely for the Xbox One and PS4 respectively.
Xbox One sales jumped 96% last week. But according to my retail source, PS4 sales also rose by 72.4%. That’ll be because some stock came in

It is safe to assume that the Xbox One sales spike is in direct relation to the recent release of highly popular Titanfall, be sure to read our full written review. On the Sony side of the equation and as Chris points out, with the addition of more PS4’s being in stock this increase was expected. Sony has recently mentioned that come April they will have a steady flow PS4 units in the UK, US and Japan. We’ll just have to wait and see.
