The model will be just like the Ultimate Console Showdown thread however instead of weekly sales for the current year it will be monthly sales for the entire lifecycle of the given system compared to other competitive system (by sales, not generation/type/manufacturer) that the contender have to beat (or is next in line for it) or might finish close to it.

  • Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo DS (33M - JAPAN)
  • Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo DS (154M)
  • PlayStation 5 vs PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 3 (117M & 87M)
  • PlayStation 5 vs PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 3 (10.5M & 9.6M - JAPAN)
  • Xbox Series vs Xbox 360 vs Xbox One (86M & 58M)
  • Xbox Series vs Xbox 360 (1.66M - JAPAN)
