If Switch can sell this well with such an underwhelming release schedule, then 2021 is going to be bonkers for Switch sales. I imagine everything is getting delayed with Coronavirus, so 2021 could easily be huge with Odyssey 2, BotW 2, Bayo 3, and several other delayed games. It'll probably be a huge release year for Nintendo like 2019 or 2017 were.

The Switch continues to sell like hotcakes. It ALMOST even managed to outsell the PS4 in Europe this week!

The Nintendo Switch outsell the PS4 in Western Europe, but East prefers the PS4 because it less expansive

Yup it rarely outsells the PS4 across Europe though. I think the last time was during the 2019 holiday season.

You're forgetting the AC launch. But it's rare alright.

Oh yeah I forgot about AC. It'll be interesting to see if the Switch stays on top in any region once the PS5 releases.
