Sony's PlayStation 5 was the best-selling console in the UK in February, according to the head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring.
Only 3,000 units separated the PS5 from the second best-selling console, the Nintendo Switch. There was no mention of the Xbox Series X|S, which was the best-selling console in January.
Dring added that sales for the PS5 and Switch were up in February when compared to January. The PS5 had more consoles shipped in the second half of the month and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury boosted Switch sales.
2021 sales so far are practically tied between the PS5 and Switch with the Switch only ahead by a few hundred units.
Over 350,000 consoles have been sold in the UK in 2021 so far, according to Dring. This would include sales of the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and the last-generation consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One.
Ooooh it was close in the UK hardware charts for February. Just 3,000 console sales separated PS5 (no.1) from Nintendo Switch (no.2)— Christopher Dring (@Chris_Dring) March 1, 2021
