Xbox, PlayStation and Switch sales jump 41% in September | UK Monthly Charts
Sales of games consoles surged by 41% during September. GfK panel data shows that over 176,000 machines were sold.
All three main consoles had a strong month. PS5 remained the best-selling console, with sales up 9% over August. The machine now boasts over two million players in the UK.
Just behind PS5 is Xbox Series X and S, which saw a significant 104% jump in sales compared with August.
Further back in third spot is Nintendo Switch, although even that console enjoyed a strong 44% sales uplift during the month, helped by the launch of Splatoon 3.
Overall, year-to-date console sales are still down 35.5% in the UK.
