I think it’s obvious that Switch is going to outsell Xbone by a pretty huge margin. The real question is, how far will Switch go, and will it drop off like 3DS? Switch isn’t very far ahead of 3DS in alligned sales, and 3DS has received pretty much every major Nintendo franchise you can think off. Gotta wonder if Switch will beat it by much. I’m still thinking 85 million lifetime for Switch; 80 if it’s third party support doesn’t take off.
