Switch is the most profitable ‘format’ for all of entertainment in the UK
Here’s a bit of an interesting tidbit: Switch is the most profitable ‘format’ for all of entertainment in the UK. That’s despite a 12.5 percent dip year-over-year.
Switch beats out DVDs, Blu-ray, and CDs, and it’s even just ahead of vinyl. The console’s boxed sales hit £88.7 million since January 1.
To compare to other gaming platforms, PS4 and PS5 combined was at £79.6 million for the year thus far. Xbox software sales, comprised of both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S boxed games, are at £17.8 million. PC follows significantly behind.
Here’s a chart breaking things down further:
We still have a few months to go to close out the year, but Switch still has some heavy hitters ahead. Splatoon 3 launches later this week, which will be followed by Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet in November – and Pokemon games always prove to be massive sellers. Third-parties will be chipping in with their own games as well such as Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope in October.
