Lmao, is this serious? Of course Switch will beat XBONE lifetime, likely in 2019.

Switch is going to sell ~30 million this year?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

With current sales it sells 1 million more each ten weeks so to bridge the gap it would need 200 weeks excludinf holidays

Surprised at how Xbox is accepting its sales position I expected more of a fightback by now. I could see Xbox declining quite rapidly if they don't bring the price of the Xbox One X down in price soon and have the standard xbox one undercutting the ps4 price. They need to do something. I can see Switch surpassing Xbox in 2019 if Microsoft don't pull their finger out.

Seems to be catching up to Xbox One already.

Microsoft has fought their asses off all generation, unbundled Kinect, multiple price reductions, 2 revisions, released their biggest IP (Halo, Gears, Forza), has full AAA support, paid for exclusives/timed exclusives (Titanfall, Tomb Raider, PUBG), released a handful of new IP (Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, ReCore, Sea of Thieves). They just cant seem to get out of that ~8 million/year baseline.

Most of those are fighting for American/UK customers, who are notably disloyal. When they could be fighting more for European customers or in other areas like South America. Take Fifa away from Sony instead of the Madden deal or release more games to european taste.



I'll make sure to bump this thread in a year or two. It won't just pass the XBO, it'll do so by a wide margin.

It may not be a bad thing for XB actually. As long as the 'XB2' launch goes much smoother. While the 360 was a strong launch and a massive improvement in many ways, just focus on the fact that the 360 was unexpected and a true underdog. People love when an underdog rises up and goes above and beyond. If 'XB2' has next gen level hardware that matches the price, and that price is reasonable, then a worthy and more lengthy list of exclusives to go with that launch and the following years, could very well give 'XB2' the same boost that 360 had. Right now, while there is still room to go down since they aren't hurting that bad overall at this point, especially in comparison to the 360 sales, XB has plenty of room to move up and improve, which makes them potentially dangerous.

I see XB1 coasting for the rest of this gen for the most part, so it leads me to believe that we will see Switch surpassing it by the end of 2019, which may be short lived if we see a 2020 'XB2'.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
