These figures are based on data from GfK Entertainment.
Sales of the switch continue to rise. Since the beginning of the year, the console has risen 13.6% in the first three months of 2020, not bad for a machine entering the market for a fifth year. March 2020 is an important month for UK physical sports and console sales due to the start of the COVID-19 lockout, so comparisons for 2021 do not seem very logical. In the four weeks to April 3, 2021, 217,268 game consoles (unnoticed data) were sold in the UK, down 7.6% from the same period in 2020.
In terms of box games, more than a million games were sold in March 2021, a 20% drop from the same period in 2020. Nintendo Switch topped the charts in March, Animal Trafficking: The best-selling game of the month, 12 months after New Horizons launched.
