Switch vs Xbox 360 Sales Comparison in the US - October 2023 - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 18 November 2023 / 2,782 Views

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.

Switch Vs. Xbox 360 US:

Gap change in latest month: 99,009 - X360

Gap change over last 12 months: 1,994,745 - X360

Total Lead: 7,491,655 - Switch

Switch Total Sales: 42,358,074

Xbox 360 Total Sales: 34,866,419

October 2023 is the 80th month that the Nintendo Switch has been available for in the US. During the latest month, the Xbox 360 outsold the Nintendo Switch by 99,009 units.

In the last 12 months, the Xbox 360 has outsold the Nintendo Switch by 1.99 million units. The Switch is currently ahead of the Xbox 360 by 7.49 million units.

The 80th month for the Nintendo Switch is October 2023 and for the Xbox 360 it is June 2012. The Switch has sold 42.36 million units, while the Xbox 360 sold 34.87 million units during the same timeframe. The Xbox 360 sold current Switch sales in month 98.

The Xbox 360 sold 43.75 million units in the US during its lifetime. The Switch needs to sell another 1.39 million units to outsell the Xbox 360 in the US.

Normally you end these comparisons if the the "end-of-life" sales are passed but on this one I think it would be interesting to keep up with it for a few months due to the X360's performance in later years.

Switch is guaranteed to pass the X360s total in December but even though it can't "win" I am curious how much X360 can gain in month 85/86.

Last 2 years Nov + Dec has been about 2.4m. Unless there is some special deal or price-cut it's going to be more like ~2.2m, finishing the year about 44.5m

Thanks! That's impressive data there. Cool, I hope Switch can get close to that 2.2M then.
