Just thought there was some interesting tid bits this week from Gi.biz.

Mario Kart 8: Deluxe was the No.1 boxed game in the UK last week, driven by deals around the Nintendo Switch console over Black Friday.

The Switch title, which has sold over two million copies in the UK, jumped six places following a 567% jump in sales week-on-week. There was a special Switch Black Friday console bundle featuring Mario Kart 8.

As Black Friday weeks go, it was a relatively weak one by physical game sales standards. Black Friday boxed game sales in the UK are down 10% compared with the same period in 2020, which means 100,000 fewer boxed games were sold this year than last year.

And the big new release of the week was Farming Simulator 22, which debuts at No.13. The game sold best on PS4, which accounted for 37% of sales, followed by Xbox (34%), PS5 (14%) and then PC also 14%). - will add to my sheet of numbers

Adios ps5, xsx in the UK. Its time for the Switch to take his throne, in the UK market.
