The gap between PS4 and Switch is the widest that it has ever been. PS4 is about to hit a sales burst though. I think it will catch the Switch, but just barely. Switch is very gradually gaining on the PS4.

I'm kind of confused, this article say PS4 sales were 27.85m at the end of Oct 2015 but the weekly chart ending Oct 31 shows that it was at 28.56m.
Even if you're going by weeks instead of months it doesnt add up because there is no week where PS4 sales equal 27.85m, it goes from 27.76m on Oct 10 to 28.0m on Oct 17.

I guess the maximal offensive will be the period between SMM2 and the 2 Pokemon + the 3 months following.
So June 2019 to Mars 2020 I would say.
