Switch turned out to be a beast after all. :)

This is the switch's year. Europe is the only place where switch is less than PS4 and once that gap is closed and reversed, which I think it will sometime this year, it'll be all switch, all year long. Basically until the PS4 and neXtbox release. And just as PS4 didn't magically drop off after the switch was released, the switch won;t magically drop off. The thing that makes things suddenly drop off is the company making the console like how Nintendo suddenly stopped supporting the Wii in 2010, even though Wii U released in 2012. And by the end of this year, switch will be well past xbone and may even be at 50mil which is insane numbers and close to half of what PS4 will be which will probably be 103mil+
