Games Industry recently released the monthly video game sales in the UK for the month of March 2021. Within the article the site stated that the PlayStation 5 has already surpassed sales of the ill-fated Wii U console which launched back in 2012 in the United Kingdom. The Wii U had a fantastic library of games but it failed to take off in most territories. Thankfully Nintendo’s current console the Nintendo Switch has proved to be a success in the UK and elsewhere. However, during the month of March the Nintendo Switch was in third-place after PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series systems.
“Sony’s new console enjoyed its second biggest month so far, and it’s already overtaken PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Dreamcast in terms of sales in the UK.”
