Switch Best-Selling Console in Europe and Australia in November, PS5 Slightly Behind

Switch Best-Selling Console in Europe and Australia in November, PS5 Slightly Behind - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 March 2021 / 3,356 Views

The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console across Europe and Australia in November, according to the head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring. 

Switch sales compared to November 2019 are down just 2.2 percent as last year saw the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, which helped drive sales. 

The PlayStation 5 had a strong launch across Europe and Australia, but it fell just short of the Switch for the month. However, it should be noted the PS5 didn't launch in Europe until November 19.

The PlayStation brand had a bigger share of the overall market when you add up sales for the PS5 and PS4, according to Dring. However, it was fairly close, mainly due to the UK.

Interesting sales :) 2020 is a legendary Gaming-Year for me, so many fantastic Games. And The PlayStation 5 is completely sold out in every country and is not in any store. The Dualsense is the best controller and I'm sure that 2021 will be a gigantic year - when enough PS5 consoles can be produced for all gamers.
