Switch has quite a nice lead, can the PS4 come in front again with it's holidays or fall just short of it?

Lazy to calculate again, but the PS4 will pass above. Cool that the Switch has taken another +60000 before the counter offensive of the PS4.

The PS4 sold ~3m units in its upcoming holiday season. Switch can be expected to sell 500-600k in the next two months, so the lead of ~1.8m will turn into a deficit of 600-700k units by the end of month 26.
