On the other hand, Sony sold 181,363 consoles while Microsoft managed to sell 44,185 Xbox One units. \n \nOne thing you will notice from the data is that the trends are not the same in all regions. While Nintendo dominates, globally, it is not the favorite in all the regions. \n \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/TrunksWD\/status\/1172270771135287298 \n \nIn the Americas - US, Canada, and Latin America – Nintendo Switch was the best selling console with 87,737 units sold.

Surprisingly, the Nintendo 3DS sold more units than the Xbox One. The handheld console was sold 2,184 times while Microsoft managed just 1,265. PS Vita still rocks in the Asian region with 48 consoles sold. \n \nWhile the Nintendo Switch is doing very well, it is still not the best selling console of all time.

Third is Xbox One with 43,189,390 units sold, followed closely by Nintendo Switch which has its lifetime sales at 37,200,939 unit.
