Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X have beaten Sony’s PlayStation 4 in this key category.
Google has revealed the biggest searches of the year, and it’s good news for Nintendo and Microsoft.
The consumer tech category was dominated by the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone X at one and two.
This is followed by the Nintendo Switch at three, the Samsung Galaxy 8 at four and the Xbox One X at five.
The Sony PlayStation 4, on the other hand, is nowhere to be seen in a top ten that’s full of smartphones.
The PS4 is still way ahead of Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in terms of sales, but the search rankings are a good indication that the Switch and Xbox are on the way up.
And it’s not surprising when you take a look at some of the best Nintendo Switch games in the gallery below…
Nintendo Switch sales figures were recently revealed by Nintendo.
Despite worldwide stock shortages, the Nintendo Switch has sold a staggering 10 million units.
That’s almost as many as the Wii U sold in its entire lifetime. The Switch is expected to shift 14 million by the end of the financial year, which is more than the 13.56 million units the Wii U sold.
Speaking about the news, Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata said: “We are thrilled that fans all across Europe and around the world are enjoying the gameplay experiences that only Nintendo Switch can offer, whether it be the newest adventures with Super Mario and Link, or unique games such as 1-2-Switch, where players look at each other and not the screen.”
Nintendo gave their last Switch sales update at the end of October, revealing the console had sold 7.63 million by the end of September.
The latest sales update marks a 2.37 million increase in the number of Switch units sold across the globe.
Less clear is how many units the Xbox One X has shifted since launching last month.
The Xbox One X sold 80,000 units in the UK during its first week on sale. By comparison, it took the PS4 Pro 4 weeks to hit the same number.
