The best-selling console a September in the UK it was PS5, as certified by the data provided by GfK. In second position we find Xbox Series X, while in third Nintendo Switch. Overall it has been a good month for hardware sales, with all platforms experiencing significant growth.
The result of PS5 is due to an increase in supplies compared to previous months. This is its best performance since February / March 2021. Also the increase in sales of Xbox Series X it was born from the increased supplies, a sign that it is still the biggest problem of the new generation.
Tail light is Nintendo Switch, which in any case performed well, thanks to the price reduction of 20 pounds applied by Nintendo to the basic version of the console, which buffered the braking due to the arrival in October of the Nintendo Switch OLED (whose data will be processed precisely for the month of October).
In total, more than 1.6 million consoles were sold in 2020 and in the UK alone. an amount 43.2% higher than in the same period of 2020. Obviously, a further surge is expected during the Christmas period. In terms of revenues, £ 600 million was spent on consoles during the year, 100% more than in 2020.
Speaking of accessories, the DualSense white, the official PS5 controller, takes first position, followed by the black DualSense and The Pulse 3D Wireless headphones for PS4 and PS5. In fourth position we find the white Xbox wireless controller.
