The leader in revenue for the same period was the Xbox 360.
According to the NPD Group, which analyst Matt Piscatella shared on Twitter, from 1995 to 2019, the portable Nintendo DS became the best-selling console in the United States. PlayStation 2 is in second place, and Xbox 360 is in third. Microsoft’s console, however, has brought the most profit over these 25 years, beating both PS4 and Xbox One.
In the period from 2010 to 2019, the PlayStation 4 retained leadership in the American market – it became the best-selling console in both monetary and physical terms. In second place was the Xbox One, and in third – the Xbox 360.
In Japan, in turn, according to the results of 2019, almost three-quarters of the sales of all consoles fell on the Nintendo Switch. In total, 4.5 million devices were sold during the year, while the PS4 sold 1.1 million units.
