The Switch is about to outsell the Xbox One's Lifetime sales far sooner than I thought, which is insane considering how the Switch released 3.5 years later than the Xbox One.
The Switch has pretty much been outselling the Xbox One in a 3:1 ratio since it's launched, amazing.

It will pass the Wii. I think it will at least hit GBA numbers if they are smart about it. What they will be chasing the the DS, but I have a feeling Switch 2 will come before it ever gets that far and put a slow on sales.

Are there any charts showing the rise of the Switch vs. Xbox One graphed from the launch of the Xbox One? The way the chart is done gives accurate information, but I don't think it shows just how staggering the rise of the Switch has been.

Although I love them all, as each system really have a charm of their own, the switch is just something special. The library is great, and really has the "console quality" games on the go. I love the switch, and it is my go to system since release, hands down. Very happy it's a healthy system.
