PS5 is the best-selling console in November in the UK, while COD: Black Ops Cold War leads the software chart. These data were collected by the company GfK Market, which monitors the video game market in the area.

A total of 900,000 consoles were sold in the UK in November, marking the eighth best month ever in terms in absolute sales and the second in terms of revenues, only beaten since December 2013, when stores received a large amount of the newly launched PS4 and Xbox One.

As mentioned, the most successful console was PS5, which relegated the Nintendo Switch to second place for the third time in two years. Despite this, Nintendo's console saw 96% growth over the previous four weeks, particularly during Black Friday, when it grew 63.1% year-on-year.

Speaking of software, in November 2.38 million games were sold (from 25 October to 21 November 2020), of which 35% for Nintendo Switch. PS4 follows. Nintendo is also the top publisher of the month thanks to the combined sales of titles such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft and Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Ubisoft follows with Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion. However, the best-selling single game is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which occupies the first position of the monthly ranking, despite having sold fewer physical copies than other chapters of the series.

The best-launching PS5 game was Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales, which beat the PS4 version in sales.

The launch of the new consoles has also caused an increase in the sale of accessories: customers have bought 1.25 million, with a growth of 61.4% compared to the previous month and 48.3% compared to the previous year. The best-selling accessory was the DualSense, the PS5 controller, followed by the Pulse 3D headphones for PS4 and PS5 and the DualShock 4, the PS4 controller. The Xbox controller, Shock Blue version, appears in fourth position, followed by the Carbon Black model in fifth and Robot White in ninth. The PS5 Media Remote is in seventh position, the DualSense charging station in eighth and the PS5's HD camera in eleventh.
