UK: June 2018 Charts – Crash Bandicoot Switch Sales Were On Par With Xbox One Sales

We are now in July so it is time to see how the various video game releases performed in the month of June 2018 in the United Kingdom. As you are probably already aware, the UK is the biggest video game market in Europe so it’s a good  impression of what people are purchasing. There are currently two Nintendo published games in the top ten which is fantastic and those are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Tennis Aces both of which are for the Nintendo Switch. Here’s the best-sellers in the UK for the month of June 2018.

  1. FIFA 18
  2. God of War
  3. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  4. Detroit: Become Human
  5. Far Cry 5
  6. Fallout 4
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Mario Tennis Aces
  9. Vampyr
  10. GTA 5

“Overall, the market was down 16 per cent in value year-on-year but up 23 per cent month-on-month, with the Switch making more money than the Xbox One at retail for the second consecutive month.”

“The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, having released on Xbox One, Switch and PC on June 29th, managed to take No.3 in the charts, with sales for the PS4 version also being up 16 per cent month-on-month. It’s been exactly one year since the PS4 version released so the appeal for the title has certainly faded a bit, with Month One sales on XO, Switch and PC not reaching the heights of the original PS4 release. But they still performed well, with sales on Switch being on a par with sales on Xbox One.”
