Another month has passed, and the Nintendo Switch continues to outperform the competition in the UK thanks to continued supply restrictions.

Of the 93,000 consoles sold in February, and while we don’t know the exact cut, the Switch took the lion’s share of that figure. However, overall Switch sales are down 30% compared to the same period in 2021.

In February 2021, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Rage was released, which undoubtedly significantly increased the sales of consoles.

Total console sales in 2022 are currently down 33.4% year-on-year, which is no doubt mainly due to continued component shortages.

When it comes to software sales, it’s no surprise that FromSoftware’s juggernaut tops the top ten. ancient ring but Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes 4th place. Given that Nintendo doesn’t release digital sales figures, we’d say that’s a good result for Game Freak’s latest game.

1. Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
2. Forbidden Horizon West (Sony)
3. FIFA 22 (EA)
4. Pokemon Legends: Arceus (Nintendo)
five. Grand Theft Auto 5 (Rock star)
6. Dying Light 2: Stay Human (Techland)
7. Total War: Warhammer III (Sega)
8. Call of Duty: Vanguard (Activation Blizzard)
