The 2017 total numbers still don't count Switch's numbers. The 2019 v 2017 total comparison is also off because of this.

Thank you for pointing that out. I've updated the charts.

Yay! The past couple of these charts had the same problem. It's been bugging me for weeks because I really like the market share charts.

I'm still struggling with X1's last year's numbers. That drop in the second half was way too deep without any cause. Especially when considering that it was confirmed to be up yoy in NoA (only 3% but still).

maybe the cause was the xbox one X launch back in 2017 november

@yo33331, I guess that is the most logical explanation. But it still seems a little bit weird that it only affected the markets outside of U.S., I mean, you would think that, with the prices being a little bit cheaper (the X1X saw its first holiday-promotions) less developed countries would be more receptive of the product. But I guess not.
