As of August 2023, the best-selling console in the world is the Nintendo Switch, with over 107 million units sold. The PlayStation 4 is in second place, with over 117 million units sold. The PlayStation 5 is in third place, with over 30 million units sold.
The PlayStation 4 was released in November 2013, and it was the best-selling console for several years. However, the Nintendo Switch has been outselling it since 2017. The Switch is a hybrid console, which means that it can be played both docked and handheld. This has made it more appealing to a wider range of gamers.
The PlayStation 5 was released in November 2020, and it is still in its early stages of life. It is expected to sell more units in the years to come, but it is unlikely to catch up to the Nintendo Switch.
