Horizon is taking it's toll in the 2018 vs 2017 battle for PS4, but still pretty much flat currently. God of War should put 2018 back in the lead.

PS4 is pretty much flat year on year, so another 20 million + year is possible. The Switch seems to be on the 17-18 million trajectory.

If they release Pokemon at the end of the year - will Nintendo be able to ship additional 10milion units?

Very interesting, but PS4 100% marketshare in 2016 and Total (last figure) should be corrected.

PS4 - Strong
XBone - Decent upswing
Switch - Strong

3DS - Steady ship (can't believe it's still relevant in 2018)
PSV - It's dead and burried. RIP

Very impressed that PS4 is flat considering the extremely aggressive measures Microsoft has taken and the Switch being around.
