In terms of unit sales, Switch accounted for 42% of all consoles sold last week, ahead of Xbox Series X/S (40%) and PS5 (18%).
That’s according to data from retail tracker GfK Entertainment, which was published on GamesIndustry.biz.
While PS5 trailed its rivals in terms of unit sales, it’s worth noting that it has a relatively high retail price and it didn’t receive the same level of discounts as some other consoles. GfK didn’t provide any sales data based on revenue generated.
Overall consumer spending on game hardware, physical games and accessories during Black Friday week in the UK were up 4% compared to 2021, but last week only ranked as eighth biggest of the 10 Black Fridays tracked by GfK.
