With the next gen around the corner sales for PS4 and Xbox One being down 30-40% this year is to be expected.

NPD numbers leaked, Switch's 2019 numbers have been adjusted down. VGC did have Switch at 20.21m for 2019, but it's now been changed to 19.86m.

Barkley, what were the numbers? I haven't seen them, I'd like to know what the monthly breakdown was. 19.86 mil is still crazy good. Vgchartz was damn close.
