Last update: 2018-08-14 with VGC-data for the week ending 2018-07-30.
Well, I thought it might be an interesting idea to compare the sales of games across different consoles, if they release on multiple of them. This should give us some insight in the selling power of each platform for games.
I give percentages, this are the percentages of how much of the game sold on the specified platform. For this I only include this three consoles, if the same game is releases on different consoles, on PC or on mobile devices, these sales don't matter for this. So for an even distribution between the three you expect 33% for each platform. Above that is good, below that is bad. I include a few games, that are released only on two platforms as additional graphs, but here you expect 50% instead. I only added a few releases that are missing one platform, mostly for some interesting games, or japanese games which are missing the Xbox.
For many of these games are special situations: additional content on one platform, late port for another and so on. These should you consider if you try to analyse the data. The data in this table is based on VGC-data, so maybe it is incorrect or unprecise.
I order by first release. I try to update from time to time and add new games as they get tracked. If you think I miss interesting games, say something and I add them.

New games since last update:
To show how the new releases since the last update do, I have a graph containing these titles. Here I only consider the weeks it is out now for the newest platform (if they are late ports). I notice the number of the first weeks after release included in this figure. In the above graphs, all sales are considered, even if it is sold for a few weeks on one platform and for years on another.
Upcoming games to look for:
- Dark Souls Remastered releases later this year for Switch
- Dragon Quest XI will be out later for Switch
- Team Sonic Racing
- Valkyria Chronicles 4 is out later this year on Switch
- Shining Resonance Refrained
- FIFA 19 and NBA 2K19 release for all platforms
