According to GamesIndustry.biz’ Christopher Dring, all consoles in the UK market grew in September 2022. Like last month, the PlayStation 5 took the top spot in the UK hardware charts.
Christopher Dring from GamesIndustry.biz regularly provides us with interesting statistics and figures on the British console market.
In a recent tweet, Dring pointed out that all three consoles have grown in the past few months. The Xbox Series X in particular benefited from new deliveries in September. Without giving exact figures, Dring explained that the PlayStation 5 topped the UK hardware charts last month, just like it did in August.
“September was a really strong month for console sales. Across the UK, all three consoles saw sales jump. Xbox Series X inventories got a big boost. The PlayStation 5 took first place. I hear similar reports from other markets,” said Dring.
PS5 recently reached the next milestone in the UK
Just recently, the PlayStation 5 hit the next milestone in the UK, selling more than two million copies. It took Sony’s current console just 98 months to achieve this milestone on the island. Only the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s Wii sold faster in Great Britain.
According to Dorian Bloch, head of GfK Chart-Track, the PlayStation 5 could have set a new record. However, the supply bottlenecks that the PlayStation 5, like the Xbox Series X, had long struggled with prevented it from reaching the two million unit sales mark faster in the UK.

According to unconfirmed reports, the PlayStation 5 supply bottlenecks may finally come to an end in fiscal year 2023/2024 (April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024) as Sony and Sony Interactive Entertainment aim to ship 30 million consoles in the upcoming fiscal year. At least that’s what the well-known industry insider Tom Henderson reported.
September was a really strong month for console sales. Across the UK, all three consoles saw a jump in sales. There was a big surge in Xbox Series X stock. PS5 holds the No.1 spot. I am hearing similar stories across other markets, too
