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

Nice thread to save for future reference. It is pretty obvious, that if it happens, it will take at least three years. In that time a lot can happen, so we cannot be sure either way. I think the Switch will manage that, but nobody at that point can be sure, so it will be nice to revisit this thread.

Definitely. It won't happen over night but over years.

So far we have nothing that suggests that. this year, xbox beat switch easily when you combine both months.

They had a new console on the market and firesales. You can't release a console every year and at some point they won't be able to have fire sales like they are doing now. 

They just had their best January yet in the US., without the fire sales (not saying I agree with Quickrick though)



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.

Anyone else read "Will Smith" in the title?

Probably still a bit of X momentum plus it was a 5 week January that made it look more flattering that it actually was. I can only see the gap between Xbox and Switch increasing every month.



Yes, it will.

The Xbox One isn't in danger of coming in last place though, because the Wii U locked up that spot. If you ignore generational distinctions, the Xbox One is behind Nintendo's and Sony's consoles already, because in almost every month it finishes in third place behind Switch and PS4.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It's easy to forget about Wii U.

Even with out fire sales, and a new console, if we look at previous years, xbox has been selling 2-2.5 million during the holidays. yea box lost momentum last year, but switch might do the same in the future.

Will probably happen but it will take a few years



Lifetine i would say yes, Switch will overtake XBO.
