European hardware/software sales for March 2023
Not the best month for Nintendo
The final numbers for game sales in Europe have come in for March 2023, and we’ve got the breakdown. First up, let’s take a look at the top 10 games across Europe for March 2023.
As you might have noticed, there is no Nintendo game in the top 10 for March. The highest-placing Nintendo title was Metroid Prime Remastered at No.11, and it’s also important to remind you that Nintendo only reports physical numbers, whereas all other games/companies on the list combine digital/physical sales for their chart placements.
Along with this, we also have some details on how the hardware side of things went.
- console hardware sales were up 67% to 570,000 units
- 1.5 million add-on products were sold across the markets, a rise of 13% over the year before
- 1.9 million points cards and wallets were sold in March 2023, a drop of 1.9% over the year before
Finally, and most likely the info you’re waiting for, the PS5 took first place, while Switch snagged second and Xbox came in third overall.
