ShopTo triples console market share after best year ever

UK online retailer ShopTo says it is enjoying its most successful year on record.

The firm told MCV that it has already matched the turnover achieved in its previous financial year in just five months. It said that Chart-Track figures show it has tripled its console market share and almost doubled its share of the software sector over the last year, too.

The firm benefitted from Xbox One and PS4 sales at the end of 2013, as well as strong Nintendo sales.

“We had fantastic support from the format holders, which allowed us to break all our previous records,” said purchasing director James Rowson.

“We have achieved last year's turnover in five months of this financial year, which is a measure of the growth we have never seen.

“Demand is still high for PS4, Xbox One and their games. And pre-orders are huge for the amazingly strong looking triple-A titles in 2014.”
