PlayStation 4 sales are apparently up big time in the UK following the launch of the Pro model last week. Citing data from Gfk, MCV reports that PS4 sales overall jumped 204 percent week-over-week for the week ended November 12.

According to the report, 65 percent of PS4 sales for the week were the Pro model. Standard edition PS4 sales jumped 8.5 percent week-over-week.

Sales of Sony's console in the UK paced ahead of the Xbox One, as PS4 sales (PS4 and PS4 Pro) were 44 percent better than total Xbox One sales during the week, the report said. The PS4 ended the week with a 53 percent hardware marketshare while the Xbox One came in at 37 percent.

The Xbox One had a strong week in the UK as well, as sales of the console rose 85 percent.

In the United States, the Xbox One has been the best-selling console since July, while the console has been the best-selling system in the UK and Australia since September. It's possible PS4 sales have been depressed by the early September announcement of the more powerful PS4 Pro, which launched on November 10. Sales figures for November will be announced in December.
