This IDC study examines and contrasts the performance of the major home video game console hardware makers and associated game software providers in 2017. The market share changes of the Switch, Wii U, Wii, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 systems are tracked from 2011 to 2017 along several dimensions. North American dynamics are broken out from those of Western Europe, Asia/Pacific (including Japan), and a combined rest of the world (ROW) region. The state of digital-only microconsoles is considered in modest detail."Nintendo Switch crushed it last year. The platform delivered one of the biggest single-year turnarounds in the history of TV-based gaming for Nintendo, and practically every metric shows it. It's nevertheless true that PS4 continued to be the world's dominant home game console platform, and Microsoft pushed the digital transition envelope in some interesting ways in 2017." - Lewis Ward, IDC's research director of Gaming and VR/AR.
