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

The latest UK software sales data has been released by GFK Chart Track, according to GamesIndustry. This time, the data is for February 2018. February was a slow month for new releases, but boxed game retailers were still able to have a better February than last year. Apparently, “software sales are up 5% to 1.2 million games sold and revenue generated from these games is up 6% to £36.5 million”.

Once again, the Nintendo Switch is credited for the increase. It was reported that “the machine was not on shelves during February 2017, and the console has been performing well in the UK. Switch accounted for 14.5% of all the games sold last month, while Nintendo was the No.2 publisher of the month with a 13.3% share of the market (EA was No.1 due to the strong performance of FIFA 18 and UFC 3). This time last year, Wii U had a 1.8% share of the market, and Nintendo was the No.4 publisher of the month”. Here’s the Top 20 software sales chart:
