It's pretty good, not great but good. In comparison it took the PS4 4 months to hit 2m in EU, Switch 8m, and XBO 12m (PAL didn't launch until month 10, and moved XBO from being outsold by PS4 5:1 down to 3:1) to hit 2m.

So Switch should end its first year around 3.5m, XBO 2.1m, PS4 +6m.

Very much so. When a single (small) country is outselling a region, there's something wrong with the advertising or the demographic there. France and Germany seem to be decent fronts for Nintendo. UK, not so much. US seems to have made up a fair portion of that 10 million. We're looking at 2.5 for Japan, 2 for Europe, and maybe 1 for the rest of the World. - which leaves 4.5 for US alone.

UK sales aren't even that bad, but some other European countries really don't seem to like Nintendo.

Not gonna happen now. With the PS4's more cinematic and realistic graphics, why would anyone want to downgrade their FIFA sports experience??? FIFA is like pretty much synonymous with the PS brand.
