    PS4 Sales In UK Might Have Surged As Well Last Week

    Even since both new consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, came out in November last year analysts and fans alike have been keeping an eye on the competition between them. In several markets it appears that the PS4 might be outselling the Xbox One. However last week it was reported that the Xbox One sales had gotten a big boost over in the UK, sales apparently jumped 96 percent. If that happened, it could be attributed to the launch of Titanfall, a much awaited title for the console. A report suggests that this boost really might not have helped Xbox One leave its rival behind.

    Skype For Xbox One Updated

    Skype For Xbox One UpdatedSkype has announced an update for Skype for Xbox One which adds better synchronized chats, push notifications, and bug fixes – among other things, here’s the exact list from Skype’s blog post:

In fact, the release of the new PS4 and Xbox One consoles continued the momentum in the right direction, where the gap between the two competing consoles have also narrowed by quite a considerable margin. Since Microsoft did announce that it sold 258,000 Xbox Ones last month, PS4 sales figures should be a wee bit more than that. Could swing gamers affect the sales figures differently this month?
