You may have underestimated how popular the handheld Nintendo console is among consumers. It is the year 2022, and gamers are still debating whether a personal computer or a gaming console offers a superior gaming experience.

If you are more of a fan of the latter, then you will find that this article is going to be right up your alley, regardless of the brand that you decided to acquire your gadget from. Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox are, without a doubt, the most well-known and widely used gaming systems in the world. Since we’ve come a long way since the days of the Atari and Sega Mega Drive systems, we’re not even going to bother bringing them up now.

However, a good number of you are aware that Nintendo’s Switch is not a pushover when it comes to popularity, and as a result, we are about to take a closer look at which of the brands that were previously mentioned is actually in the first place.

And before you ask, yes, we do intend to back up this claim with concrete proof, which will show the world precisely as it is, unmodified, just as you’ve grown accustomed to reading content on our website. Cribbage Challenge, an online game website, has commissioned an expert team to perform an investigation into Google search trends over the course of the past year.

According to the findings of the study that was just described, the Nintendo Switch was the gaming console that people searched for the most in a total of 24 different nations, with the highest numbers occurring in France, Spain, and the Netherlands.

Given that it has sold more than 46 million copies around the globe, it is safe to say that this is still the most popular title available for consoles. When you compare that to, for example, the twenty million copies that have been sold of God of War (2018), you will notice that the gap between the two is enormous.

Where do we stand with PlayStation 5?

To bring things full circle, regarding Sony’s PlayStation 5, you should be aware that it was the most sought system in 20 different countries. This further solidifies the company’s dominance in front of its primary competitor, Xbox.

Germany, Norway, and Turkey are among the countries in which the PlayStation 5 has the highest level of popularity. Sony’s next-generation system has a significant lead in popularity in all three of these nations.

Despite the fact that there have been stock shortages ever since the PlayStation 5 was first released in 2020, the business made the announcement about 20 million sales of the console two months ago (in June 2022).

There is also the fact that sales of the PS5 in Europe actually fell by 44% in the first half of this year, which is something else that should be taken into mind in this context.

What are your thoughts on the Xbox Series X|S?

We are not going to stop here, and we are going to continue by stating that this study indicated that the Xbox Series X only dominated in popularity in three nations. We are not going to stop here, and we are going to continue by saying that.

To be more specific, we are looking at supremacy over Hungary, Kosovo, as well as the United Kingdom, which was something that everyone anticipated would happen.

Since its formal introduction in 2020, the Xbox console has sold more than 15 million units, and its sales over the past three quarters have now surpassed those of the PlayStation 5 platform. Having said that, it would appear that consumers are still considering the PlayStation 5 as a potential alternative, despite the fact that sales data favor the game system produced by Microsoft.

The reality is that this is the case, despite the fact that many people will contest the validity of this claim. When it comes to the popularity of consoles, we might believe that Sony and Microsoft are the undisputed champions, but in reality, this is not the case.

The situation for Microsoft’s Xbox gaming systems is not as rosy as everyone seemed to think it was, as can be seen in the screenshot that has been placed above this one.

This information makes it abundantly evident where the knock-on effects of supply shortages are having the most significant impact on sales of products of subsequent generations. The PlayStation 5 continues to be the most searched-for console, despite the fact that it has sold fewer units than its equivalent from Microsoft.

This indicates that there is still a desire for it, despite the fact that stock is limited across Europe. When there is a steady supply of goods available, it will be fascinating to observe how well sales actually do.
