*NSW numbers have been till march 2022 (107.65M) since the chart is by fiscal years.

Write in the comments if you want to update the chart with ~128M for the Switch for it's 6th year to see how it will look if Nintendo forecast of ~21M shipped actually happen by march 2023.

This graph really highlights the PS2s remarkable legs.

When you think about it it was only less than 10M short of PS4&XB1 combined(158.7M vs 167.3M)

PS2 had some crazy legs. I'd say helped by the slow start to the PS3 and the fact it was cheap and sold really well in the smaller markets later on. 

I doubt we will ever see a console with the legs of the PS2 ever again.

I got my PS2 in 2010, and it was still popular in my country.

Gameboy is probably as close to a sleeper hit video game system as has ever been. While it wasn’t a weak launch, the initial 5-7 year general lifespan of a system was only a moderate success, coming in below the level of the SNES… At year 6, PS4 more than doubles Gameboy. Then Pokémon comes out and not too long after Gameboy rockets into the high tier and surpasses PS4.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Sad to see the DS basically screech to a halt after Year 6. Wish they didn't announce and release the 3DS so early. Hopefully they don't repeat that mistake with Switch. Switch is holding up pretty well, all things considered. A revision in early 2023 would help bridge the gap between Switch & DS. Didn't DS only manage about 5 million in Year 6? Could definitely see Switch do far more than that in Apr 2023 to Mar 2024.

Actually the Gameboy crawl with it's last strenght to surpass the PS4. It had peak year with almost 19M after which a massive drop to 4.7M and then short of even 300k. That's probably the biggest cliff in history.
