Switch is just 10m+ away from passing the PS4. Does it have what it takes to sell 50m+ more and challenge the throne? And Series X|S being the only one to be up this year vs previous... wow.

Yeah, Switch was expected to be down YoY, but PS5 being down is definitely surprising.

As for Switch total sales, based on the trajectory Switch is looking like it will sell 15M more this year, putting it at 121M in sales. 30-40M more after that for its life seems doable. Provided Nintendo announces Switch successor late 2023 or early 2024 for a launch in 2024, that is.

Shocking figures. By this time last year PS console sales was at 4.03M units while Xbox was at around 1.84M units.
This year, PS sale is around 2.10M units while Xbox is at 2.27M units.
