Following reports of the PS5 beating the PS4’s launch sales record in the UK, Gfk has confirmed that Sony’s console was the most successful machine for the region in November. About 900,000 consoles were sold for the four weeks ending November 28th. When accounting only for home consoles, this makes it the eight biggest month for console sales and the second biggest month for console revenue, coming in just behind the launch of the Xbox One and PS4 in 2013.

Though the PS5 was on top, the Nintendo Switch came in second place. Hardware sales were up by 96 percent and on Black Friday, the Switch’s sales were up by 63.1 percent compared to the same period last year. When factoring in the 2.38 million physical games sold from October 25th to November 21st, the Switch made up almost 35 percent of that total. The PS4’s titles came in second.

In terms of accessories, Sony once again dominated with the PS5 DualSense Controller topping sales charts. The Pulse 3D Headset was in second place followed by the PS4 DualShock Controller. The Xbox Series X/S saw its Shock Blue, Carbon Black and Robot White controllers in fourth, fifth and ninth place respectively.
