Will Switch Overtake the Xbox One in the USA?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Will Switch Overtake the Xbox One in the USA?

The Switch is currently at 4.9M. Xbox One is at 20.3M. Will Switch join PS4 in overtaking the Xbox One on its own territory?

In the 360 days, Xbox had a stronghold in the USA. Beating the PS3 by 20M and also staying ahead of the massively popular Wii. Now it's in danger of coming last in its most popular territory. 

 

Thoughts?

I think it can easily. 1st party games are a lot stronger on Switch and I don't see Xbox One sales improving any time soon.



Well, the DS and 3DS both surpassed the 23m in North America. The Switch will have no problem beating the 3DS there, specially if Nintendo sticks to their guns and doesn't just release a successor after 6 years.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

If it does then it won't happen for quite a while ...

At least maybe 3/4 more years and I'm being generous that Switch's lineup will improve despite their recent event pointing to the contrary ...



Yes we can!

xbox one sales are only going to decrease, switch is only going to increase, its not a question "IF" its "WHEN" the truely interesting question is will the switch overtake the PS4.

Switch will overtake both the PS4 and the Xbox One in the US. Its already going at an insane pace without Pokemon, Smash, and animal crossing, and once those three are in the mix, it will only get better.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I think it will overtake Xbox but it still has to make up 15M.

Maybe not. But I can see Xbox momentum falling a lot harder. I can see Switch outselling Xbox by a couple of million in Nov and Dec alone.
