The Switch should definitely outsell the PS3 next week. After that, it's time to set sights on the Wii!

I wonder if the holiday season will push the Switch past Wii and PS1.

Almost assuredly. Looks likely Switch will pass Wii around first week of December and PS1 a week later.

Yeah. Needs about 6 million before November for that to happen. It has been selling 1.5 million monthly with no big releases. Should breeze past both of them this year.

Guessing the switch will add another 15-16 million by the end of the year.

Agreed. It should have no problem outselling both then it'll be hot on the heels of the PS4.

And possibly passing the ps4 by October of next year. The end of the year at the latest.

That sounds about right. It'll be interesting to see how well Switch sells next year.

Here I disagree a little bit, I see a possible overtaking in June-July. The end of 2021 for switch, or the beginning of 2022, can be crazy in sales, with pokemon arceus, the remakes of the 4th generation, splatoon 3, possibly the review and Zelda... I wouldn't be surprised by one last peak in sales for March before the progressive decline.

I'm assuming next year will be more like 1.1-1.2 million per month next year with about 10-12 million needed to catch the ps4. But if I'm wrong, it could definitely happen sooner. I just can't see 2020 part 3 happening for the switch though.

As much as it annoys some people, I think this generation will be amazing for everyone, whether you're green, blue or red. These sales are eye candy for everyone.

A lead of 27k, next week will be interesting

The PS5 and Xbox Series are closer than usual.

Xbox Series X|S launched in China on June 10, which gave it a small boost. I'd expect the gap to widen the following week as it looks like Europe got a decent shipment in.

yes, but PS5 has been selling almost 2:1 against XBox X, last generation PS4 sold a little more than 1:2 to the Xbox One. So yes, this generation consoles are a bit closer on sales.
