UK sales for January 2019 – Switch sells more physical titles than the Xbox One for the first time
Posted on February 1, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News, Switch
New sales data is in from the UK for the month of January 2019.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, a new entrant, charted at #4. While one month sales were up 17% compared to the original Wii U game, Switch had a much higher install base at the time.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also charted at #6. Sales were down 87% month-on-month, which makes sense as it is no longer a new release.
In January 2018, Switch comprised just 13.1% of all physical games sold in the UK. However, one year later, that number increased to 281.%. Switch actually sold more physical titles than the Xbox One for the first time in January. Nintendo’s console has also been doing better than the Xbox One in terms of value for six out of the past nine months.
