Switch Sold as Much as PS5, XS, PS4, and Xbox One Combined in the UK in 2020 - Sales

The Nintendo Switch had around a 50 percent marketshare in the UK in 2020, according to the head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring. 

Dring says the Nintendo Switch sold as well as the combined sales of the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in the UK last year.

In a response to another tweet, Dring said the stock of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S was higher than their predecessors and that PS4 and Xbox One sales sold "very well last year," which was driven by the pandemic, price cuts, and launches like The Last of Us Part II.

Sales of the old systems were certainly down, but when you factor in how good the launches of the new ones were with that, this is actually very impressive for Nintendo. It's possible it'll happen again next year, if supply constraints continue for the first half of the year for the new consoles.

It is 180 millions my new prediction. It can only happen that it beats the PS2

If the Switch outsells the ps2 it'll be just by a couple million and for it to happen next year would need to be better for Nintendo than this one and I'm pretty sure that won't happen though it is pretty probable the Switch will become the 3rd best selling console of all time when it's all said and done.

I have made many accurate console predictions in the past (Not on this website) and if you want a switch estimate, Ima say 125 - 135 Million, if it sells more (which it can) it would only happen if we have a great software line up to drive the hardware sales through the roof

Still zero PS5 for sale, pathetic really. Next gen should of been delayed.

Great for Switch, its a great platform. However, there was very limited supply of Playstation and Xbox consoles. For whatever reasons, Nintendo was able to get more units on the market.

Nintendo is smart and chosen by God to lead gaming to a brighter future.
