Most Wanted Gaming Consoles of 2023

With the end of the year here, it’s time to look back at the most wanted gaming consoles of 2022.  

2022 was an excellent year for gaming. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo all delivered fantastic games for their systems. From Pokémon Legends: Arceus to God of War Ragnarök, it was a great year for gaming.

There are ten consoles in total. The list ranges from the current generation to two generations prior. I’m-A-Puzzle conducted this research, and each system is ranked by monthly Google searches.

The Newest Systems

After an impressive 2022, the PlayStation 5 is the most wanted gaming console of the year. It has a whopping 5,400,000 monthly Google searches. Its strong performance is on the back of crucial PlayStation exclusives like Horizon: Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarök.

The Nintendo Switch is in second place, with a total of 3,200,000 monthly searches. Presumably, the OLED Switch is included in these searches.

The Xbox Series X had 2.3 million searches. This isn’t a surprise, given the struggles with Xbox-exclusive games. There are some good games this year for Xbox. However, the must-own exclusives are lacking. We’ll go over the Xbox Series S searches later on the list.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 is still going strong, coming in fourth place. A total of 1,205,000 average monthly Google searches show that the PS4 is still in demand. We didn’t have to wait long for the Xbox Series S. It’s the fifth most-wanted gaming console of 2022.
