Since the launch of the massively popular "Titanfall" first-person shooter video game, weekly sales of Xbox One have increased by 96 percent in the U.K. — a twofold increase since the new console debuted in November 2013.

Eurogamer.net reported that "Titanfall" was launched as an exclusive for Microsoft, running on Windows and Xbox One. A version of the game is also set to be released for the older Xbox 360 platform on March 25.

Not surprisingly, any game that can lift the sales of its underlying console is bound to the be a No. 1-selling game, and "Titanfall" is verifiably the best-selling game of 2014 thus far. It has nearly doubled the sales of its nearest competitor, "FIFA 14."

On Twitter, many have endorsed the game. 







More than 70 percent of new Xbox Ones sold last week were part of the £399 Xbox One "Titanfall" bundle, Eurogamer said, which comes with a download of the game.

"Dark Souls 2" is in second place for week-to-week sales, up 20 percent. "South Park" comes in third, followed by "The Lego Movie," "Thief," and "FIFA 14."

Increased sales of the Xbox One is certainly welcome news for Microsoft and the Xbox community as the new PlayStation 4 outsold the console nearly two-to-one through January. In February, Xbox made headway, selling nearly 90 percent of PS4's figures, according to GameRant.com.
