Not a fair comparation, i'm sure that if XB1 launched in March it would have outsold the Switch.

Two things will happen now...

Either the Switch slows down to a crawl come next year and never catches up like it happened with the PS and XBO or it pulls a Wii and annihilates everything after sales rise exponentially over time...

No. Xbox nor PS4 will benefit from the holiday season until months 12 - 13, unlike the Switch which benefits months 9 - 10. That being said the joke you missed was Xbox had no chance of competing. Even including it's first true holiday season in 2014 it still only hit 8m consoles sold. With the Switch already at 9m

Nah. I think the joke is that when anyone, regardless of the console they support, sees a comparison that does not support their preconceptions, they will claim the comparison is invalid because the circumstances weren't 100% identical, even though no two launches are ever 100% identical.
