A new milestone across the pond
The Switch recently celebrated quite a victory in the UK, becoming the best-selling gaming hardware of 2022 in that region of the world. Roughly 880k units were sold in the UK for 2022, beating out the PS5’s 770k and the Xbox Series X/S’ 720k. Turns out that’s not the only feather in Nintendo’s cap when it comes to UK Switch sales.
After being on the market for 5+ years, Switch has managed to move over 6 million units in the UK alone. That might not seem like a huge number, but it’s actually quite impressive! The UK isn’t a huge portion of the gaming market, but it definitely has some dedicated gaming fans. Nice to know that 6 million of them have decided to give Switch a shot.
From here on out, the Switch is likely to see hardware sales continue to drop, as that’s the natural progression of things for hardware this late in its life. That said, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom could give the platform a considerable boost. Long story short, the sales story in 2023 is going to be a very interesting one to follow!
