PS5 Sales UK

We always said that PS5 sales would rocket as soon as Sony could provide enough stock, and that's exactly what's happening in the UK. Stock is finally reaching more agreeable levels — almost two whole years after the console's release — and that's allowed the current-gen machine to overtake the Nintendo Switch in total sales for 2022 so far.

According to in-the-know analyst Christopher Dring, PS5 stock levels increased by a significant 56 per cent in August, which we imagine was more than enough to push the system beyond Nintendo's now close to six-year-old device. Sony will be hoping that this upward trend continues as we creep closer to the holiday season, and what is shaping up to be a very busy 2023 for blockbuster software.

Can you see the PS5 slowing down anytime soon? Is this just the start of PlayStation dominance? Make some predictions in the comments section below.
