UK: Here’s The GFK Top 20 Software Sales For January 2018

According to GamesIndustry, the latest UK software sales data has been released by GFK Chart Track. This data applies to January 2018. Compared to January 2017, pretty much everything saw an increase in sales and revenue. The latest data confirms that “more physical games were sold in the UK during January 2018 than the same period the year before. 1.25 million boxed games were sold, a slight improvement on the 1.24 million boxed games sold during January 2017. The big positive is that revenue was also up. £37 million was generated from these games last month, whereas that number was at £35 million in January 2017”.

There was only one reason given for the better performance, and that was Nintendo. According to GamesIndustry, “Switch was not on the market in January 2017, and back then Nintendo was the fifth biggest publisher with a 9% share of the software market (mostly due to the recent Pokémon release). This January, however, Nintendo boasts a 13.6% share of the market and is the No.1 games company in the UK (physical sales). That’s ahead of EA and Activision Blizzard”.
