Thanks to GamesIndustry, we have new insight into the UK gaming market for November 2021.
For the second month in a row, Switch was the best-selling console, as it was boosted by the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle sold around Black Friday. The PlayStation 5 followed second with the Xbox Series X and S coming in third.
As far as software is concerned, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond was the fourth best-selling game of November in the UK while Shining Pearl came in at #7. GamesIndustry points out that they would have placed in third had their sales been combined. Additionally, that’s without counting digital sales.
