Here's the top 20 games, then:

Combined charts:

Individual SKUs:

Note that limited edition releases of games are counted separately.

I assume this is what everyone is most interested in, on top of hardware sales for the consoles.

There are lots of data, the document in itself is a synthesis of differents aspects.

I think the 1st chapter is the most interesting in vgchartz context (chapter 2 is profiles aspects of french gamers, chapter 3 presents behavioral aspects on the practice and purchase of video games, and chapter 4 a reminder of S.E.L.L missions).

Top 20 2018 games sales by platform and by volume are Switch (11 games - 2,980,730 total units sold) / PS4 (8 games - 3,321,916 total units sold) mainly (and just 1 Xbox game in this top with FIFA 19 rank 15 with 185 780 units sold).

There was more 1-2-Switch sold than DBFZ on PS4 =)
Only the Pikachu! version of Pokemon Let's Go is in the top (well, not a surprise that the most mediatic pokemon is chosen)

TheWPCTraveler, you put the same screenshot twice ^^"



Ps4 reined supreme for 2018 Software.

Yes, Sony has good figures, but Switch figures are pretty impressive too. The gap is not so pronounced (around 10%).

Anyway, great numbers for both ^^



France seems like a pretty competitive market between Ps4 and Switch.
