    The UK physical games market experienced a 2.8 percent decline in revenue year-on-year in 2018 as its digital market grew. However, retail sales generated £770 million despite several AAA titles underperforming. Thanks to GfK and UKIE (via Games Industry), we now have last year’s data for UK’s boxed games market, and it’s good news for Sony and PlayStation.

    48 percent of all boxed games sold in the UK in 2018 were for the PS4. Xbox One game sales accounted for 30.2 percent of the physical market share, followed by Nintendo Switch with 16.8 percent.
