Why UK data? The country closely monitors the retail market and often provides data that is then projected onto the rest of Europe. It happened so historically.
However, you shouldn’t discount the Xbox either. The console shows good sales figures after a successful presentation at E3. For example, in Europe in June it managed to sell more devices than Sony.
