Forums - Sales Discussion - Ultimate Console Showdown 2023 |Completed|

This is the Ultimate Console Showdown comparison thread for 2023.

The battles for this year are as follows:

  • Nintendo Switch'23 vs PlayStation 5'23
  • Nintendo Switch vs Wii'10 (17.2M)
  • PlayStation 5 vs PS4'17 (19.8M) vs NSW'21 (24M)
  • XBOX Series S/X vs XB360'06 (6.8M)

Latest adjustments: April 2024

*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 2023. Other thing is also I would not repeat the main competitor (on the tables) from the year before from my thread, so even if it's a good fit, I would always look for a different one, so it's always new and fresh.*
