Nintendo Switch is the Best-Selling Console of 2022 in the UK

    Surpassing PS5 sales in December 2022.

    This past December, the Nintendo Switch became the best-selling console of 2022 in the UK according to the GfK.

    PlayStation 5 was leading in unit sales leading into the holiday season in the UK before Nintendo Switch gained more momentum.’s Christopher Dring reports the Nintendo Switch surpasses total PlayStation 5 sales near the end of the year in the UK. Increased supply of PlayStation 5 allowed Sony to lead in sales for most of 2022.

    The PlayStation 5 was the best-selling console of November 2022 in the US according to the NPD Group. The console’s lead in November marked the fourth consecutive month as a best-seller. However, Nintendo Switch still leads in the US as the best selling console in unit sales whereas the PlayStation leads in dollar sales due to a higher MSRP.

    Supply of the PlayStation 5 dramatically increased year-over-year compared to November 2021. US NPD results for December 2022 have not been released yet, but the PlayStation 5 is expected to continue its lead in dollar sales. On the other hand, Nintendo Switch will likely be the best-selling console in unit sales for all of 2022 in the US.

    Lastly, Nintendo plans to publish its nine months earnings release for fiscal year ending in March 2023 on February 7. The company will share updated worldwide sales figures for the Nintendo Switch and its games.
