Forums - Sales Discussion - Ultimate Console Showdown: 2022 + Charts |Completed|

This is the Ultimate Console Showdown comparison thread for 2022.

The battles for this year are as follows:

  • Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo DS'10 (20.3M)
  • PlayStation 5 vs PlayStation 3'09 (13.3M)
  • Xbox Series vs Xbox 360'09 (10.6M)
  • Xbox Series vs Xbox 360'08 (345k - JAPAN)
  • PlayStation 4 vs Nintendo 3DS'20 (490k)
  • Xbox One vs XB360'17 (29k)

*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 2022.*
