Forums - Sales Discussion - Switch had highest selling Tales of Vesperia SKU in the U.K.!

https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2019-01-14-uk-charts-new-super-mario-bros-u-deluxe-takes-no-1-in-quiet-week

 

The U.K. charts have been updated, as apparently there was a "significant" amount of missing data from retailers. Obviously, different aspects of the updated chart will stand out to different people. To me, the biggest shock therein was that Tales Switch SKU outsold the PS4 one! In the U.K. of all places! Nintendo are pretty weak here, so to do that is a pretty incredible achievement imo and bodes well for future 3rd party relations.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

**DISCLAIMER** I'm not trying to take anything away from the performance of the PS4 SKU in any way. Far from it. I mentioned it because i know just how much of a beast the PS4 and its SW is in the U.K. which makes this achievement even more remarkable.

Ya, it is a bit surprising, given two factors. One Factor is this is generally switch's weakest notable market. The Second Factor is, Tales games already has audience on the PS4. Anyways congrats to both PS4 and Switch, for great sales. Xbox One with only 8% is ouch.

Agreed but for me it is definitely the 1st point that made it all the more surprising. Switch isn't all that competitive Vs. PS4 in the U.K. Japan results should be interesting. Am expecting the PS4 version to win out there, which would be quite bizarre, compared  to the U.K. results.

Good sales for switch/ps4, thats cool. i'm sure: Digital, PS4 > switch
i have the game for PS4 (1800p & 60 fps) :) Its the best Tales of-Game of all time with Tales of Berseria in my opinion. Love the characters, the world and story.

ps. The reason for this UK-surprise is: PS4 owners are ready for two Masterpieces this month: Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 Remake ; ) But hope the best for Tales of Vesperia <3 Personally, i dont like the fightsystem - but the rest is awesome/good! :)

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I feel like a game like this, which is not very demanding anyway, is sure to have higher Switch sales than PS4 sales. There is really no reason to choose the PS4 version over the Switch if you have both in this case.

Going by indicators in Japan, (COMG chart etc.) it appears the PS4 version is going to outsell the Switch version 1st week, which will be almost a flip flop of the situation in the U.K. Market.

This more interesting because Switch has lowest install base of 3 in UK.
