A report reveals that February was a rather quiet month in the UK this year; the 1.7 million game sales total recorded last month sees a 15.4% drop year-on-year. Just under 900,000 of those sales were digital (although this figure doesn't include sales from all publishers), with the rest being physical.

Console sales have also fallen year-on-year, actually tumbling by 37% as PlayStation and Xbox fans look forward to new hardware later in the year. Switch was reportedly the best-selling console by a comfortable margin, with sales performing at a similar rate to this time last year. The Neon Red/Blue version of the console sold most.

The chart below shows February 2020's top 20 games across both physical and digital formats. Note that Nintendo doesn't share digital sales data, so Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's positon only reflects physical sales.
