Forums - Sales Discussion - Ultimate Consoles Showdown: 2021 |Completed|

This is the Ultimate Console Showdown comparison thread for 2021.

The battles for this year are as follows:

  • Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Wii'08 (24.1M)
  • Playstation 5 vs Nintendo Switch'17 (13.1M)
  • Xbox Series vs Xbox 360'07 (7.9M)
  • Playstation 4 vs Xbox 360'14 (2.1M)
  • Xbox One vs Wii U'17 (100k)

*The target for all of the comparisons is to be as close as possible (and with that to give us better perspective where the given console is going this year) and to have good chance of finishing close in the end. Therefore if some of the contenders go way far one from another then, the contender's year, or even the contender itself may change so that it suits better to the given's console performance in 2021.*

Latest adjustments: March 2024
