Ever since, its release back in March 2017 the Nintendo Switch has become one of the most popular video game systems of the 10’s decade alongside the likes of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Since its release the Nintendo Switch has managed to reach approximately 23 million units worldwide in sales and is considered to be a big attraction as a video game in electronic retail stores globally. In fact many would even argue that the Nintendo Switch is a bigger attraction than the Xbox One & Xbox One X despite having inferior visuals in comparison to Microsoft’s console. While the Xbox One, Xbox One S along with the Xbox One X sold over 39 million units worldwide altogether they have still sold less than the PS4 which reached over 80 million since its release back in November 2013.
While the Nintendo Switch itself is a more creative and innovative game system than Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles the best selling titles on the hybrid game system are first party such as Super Mario Odessey, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Third party games such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76 are attractions for the Xbox One as well as the PS4. However, on average the Xbox One X costs $499 and is also backwards compatible with older generation titles for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. However, the Nintendo Switch only cost approximately $299 on average so in terms of which game system is more of an attraction depends on who you ask and what one is looking for on a console.
