And to think that even earlier this year we had people insisting the two would have similar lifetime sales

Just what I was thinking, and waiting for somebody to come and say it's a fluke coming from the Lite or anything like that...

The Switch is running away with this one. It should get close to 3DS lifetime sales by the end of next year!

Woah, already a 8.6M lead?? Haven't expected this, to be honest. We still have Pokemon Sun/Moon on 3DS to come... but wow. The 3rd year of Switch was very strong.

Sun/Moon won't change anything about Switch's decisive win in this comparison. It released during the 3DS's sixth year, so by that time it won't even be a factor anymore.

In December Switch will grow its cumulative lead to over 10m, then it faces easy comparisons throughout 2020 because the 3DS sold only 9.7m during the comparable timeframe. So by the end of 2020 you can expect Switch to be ahead of the 3DS by ~20m.
