The Switch overtaken by the PS5 and Xbox Series in the UK

In the month of May in the United Kingdom, sales of the Switch were exceeded by those of the two competitors Sony and Microsoft. The main reason ? Chronic stockouts that left many players waiting for their new generation console, and who were finally able to buy it, thanks to stock restocking.

We note that sales of the Switch are down from year to year: the kingdom was in containment, and the Animal Crossing madness had been there. But the current performance of Nintendo’s console remains very good, it is 60% more sales compared to May 2019.

On the games side, Nintendo places 6 games in the top 20. Nintendo does not share the sales figures for digital games with GFK unlike the others, so it is likely that these games are underclassified due to incomplete data.
