Switch is gunning up to reach over 50% market share this year. Might even reach it when you include the handhelds.

interesting ... how the thing will turn out until the end of the year .. I expect price cuts 50$ or 100$ on both PS4 and XB1 with these 30%ish down yoy it's not good and microsoft and sony know it, if they don't do anything the next year they will be again between 30 and 50% down on this year sales and this will be very bad about these systems ..

Well the ps5 and nextbox will be out next year, and the ps4 has sold so much already that it could stop selling right now and still be one of the most successful consoles ever.

So Switch has shaved 4 million off Xbone's total sales lead so far this year, with only really one big game.
With the $200 Lite, Pokemon, Luigi's Mansion 3, DQ11, and just a general avalanche of games over the next four months, the gap could well be closed by 2020.
