Christopher Dring, director of, unveiled this week thatin the UK, in 2020, as many Nintendo Switch sold as there were PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X and S cumulative. No figure is revealed, too bad, but the information is ultimately not so surprising. The Switch is an almost essential console, and gamers obviously didn’t jump on the PS4 and Xbox One as the new generation arrived.
