This IDC study examines and contrasts the performance of the major video game console hardware makers and associated game software and service spending in particular in the 2011-2019 period. Market share changes for the Switch, Wii U, Wii, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 systems are tracked along several dimensions. Global results are compared/contrasted from several vantage points. Digital-only microconsoles and gaming-capable streaming media players and sticks are briefly assessed."Nintendo's Switch console was the clear winner in 2019 relative to Sony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox One. Although this result wasn't unexpected given the transition year that Sony and Microsoft experienced, that doesn't mean executing well was a given for Nintendo -- it definitely went out and won this last round and posted more than a five-point global share of revenue gain that partly came at the expense of its chief rivals." -- Lewis Ward, IDC's research director of Gaming and VR/AR
