The latest sales figures for April 2021 in the UK have arrived courtesy of GfK Entertainment and GamesIndustry.biz, revealing that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S were the second best-selling consoles of the month.
This is reportedly due to "significant drop in PS5 console stock," which actually resulted in the PlayStation 4 being the highest selling Sony console in April. In contrast, more Xbox Series systems came to market, and GamesIndustry.biz says Xbox Series consoles are now "fast catching up" to PS5 and Nintendo Switch sales in 2021.
"Xbox Series machines saw more units come to market, and was the second best-selling platform for the month behind Switch. Nintendo Switch and PS5 are currently neck-and-neck in terms of sales during 2021, with Xbox Series fast catching up."
Xbox also came out on top in terms of accessories for the month, with the Xbox Wireless Controller (the standard Carbon Black version) finishing in first, pushing Sony's PS5 DualSense controller down to second.
In terms of games, Grand Theft Auto V took the top spot for combined digital and physical sales, with FIFA 21 and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sitting in second and third place respectively. Some things never change, eh?
