The VGChartz sales comparison series of articles are updated monthly and each one focuses on a different sales comparison using our estimated video game hardware figures. The charts include comparisons between the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, as well as with older platforms. There are articles based on our worldwide estimates, as well as the US, Europe, and Japan.

This monthly series compares the aligned US sales of the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox 360.

The Xbox 360 launched in the US in November 2005, while the Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017. Therefore, the holiday periods for the two consoles do not lineup, which is why there are big increases and decreases.

The 360 has one more Kinect boost left it looks like, but I think the switch will eventually pass it. Which is honestly a huge deal, the 360 was a massive success in the US

X360 hasn't reached the half of its lifetime. X360's strongest holiday seasons lie ahead. I expect a trend reversal in the gap chart. The battle could end up closer than many people expect.

Agreed. This race is very different looking than the Switch vs Wii in the US one.

360 will start closing the gap soon, however, Switch will have enough momentum to end up 3-5 milliom ahead.
