UK: Switch and New Pokemon Snap were #1 in April
Based on the latest sales from the UK, Switch was the best-selling console during the month of April. Although sales are actually down year-over-year, it’s still performing very well.
GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring says that sales trends puts Switch “on par with Xbox 360, which over time went on to do 9 million units in the UK.” Only the DS and PS2 sold more.
Also worth mentioning is that New Pokemon Snap was the best-selling game in the UK in April. That feat was accomplished in just two days. On Sunday, we heard that physical launch sales were four times higher than the original.
