The console wars are heating up, with the PS4 pushing back into the lead, Microsoft swearing it is doing things that are impossible on competitor’s platforms, and Nintendo simply trying to retain a fan base until the NX comes out. But who is really winning the console wars? For that, we have to look at a picture much bigger than our current generation. The console wars have been raging for years, ever since video games were invented, and strangely enough, consoles from back then have actually outsold some of our modern consoles that we love so much.
Note that I haven’t included sales figures for the current generation, as the generation is not over yet and those figures are not yet final. Besides the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U, here are the top twenty best-selling consoles of all time.
