Switch is 1.1 million away from PS4's peak year. Might pass it during the holidays.

I can't believe the Switch is only 3 millions away from the XboxOne. At the start of the year I didn't think the Switch would be able to surpass the XObe by the end of it but, with Black Friday and Christmas, it sure does seem like it will be able to.
