It looks like Xbox could possibly hit 10 million by the end of the year.

How so? It's barely over 5 million with a month to go.

Where the charts are at now (Dec 1) it has 4 weeks (28 days), and 2 days left. 6.1 million year to date, and it's December, so this is not impossible to sell 3.9 million units in those 30 days. The Switch itself has to sell 8.2 million this month to break that 20 million goal (going entirely by VGchartz numbers only).

True but it sold 8.4 million units in 2016 and 7.7 million in 2017. I don't see how it going to hit 10 million when it's already declining.

The first chart only goes to November 25 to compare both years directly so it's missing December 2017, a huge month for sales.

With the 3ds numbers way down, the switch is taking nearly all of the total hardware sales for nintendo. Whereas in the past nintendo would have 2 hardware out with big numbers

Little big error in the last diagram: 2017 Total sales numbers only count PS4+XBO, not Switch
