It will be close, but I think PS4 will take it. PS4 is due for a price drop which will help it a lot this holiday. Switch will have Smash Bros and Pokemon Let's Go, which will help, but I don't think Pokemon Let's Go will shoot to the top of the sales charts like a mainline Pokemon game would. But Pokemon Let's Go has the potential to have really long legs. If the Pokemon Go fans like it, then it could sell for a very long time, but I don't think the core Pokemon fans are going to rush out and buy it immediately.

Anyway, I'll give it to PS4 this year, but it will be close.

What are we considering the holiday? October through December? Either way I think Switch will lead when smash comes out to the end of the year



Probably, but mainly because PS4 will have started its 6th year on the market. Games like Spider Man, CoD, and RDR2 will for sure push a lot of PS4’s, but it likely won’t be as many as previous years. That pretty much leaves Switch to be the only competitive product that many people don’t already own.

Yeah October- December.



This thread is really showing the cluelessness of some.

I'll post some facts: The XBO will be dominated by both the Switch and PS4. That's the only domination this holiday season.

Yes. But don't ask why !



Another wild card - Nintendo (though they've been okay lately) is notorious for not hitting their announced software release dates. Until we're 30 days or so out from a stated release date, I don't think it is safe to assume that any game will launch when they say.



I’m thinking we’ll hear about some big releases from Sony. Not to mention PS4 is at a point in which a price drop isn’t unheard of.

Like what? Sony hasnt really been known to release big 1st party titles over the holidays this generation.
