Oh damn! Too early to say but it does have chance to outsell both LT! 

Considering WiiU sold only 15M, it is quite expected Switch can pass they combined, PS4 already have if I'm not wrong.

What does the PS4 have to do with this?

OP and title reads Switch is selling faster than all PS and Xbox

So if PS4 have passed 3DS+WiiU then it is quite expectable that Switch can do it.

EDIT: And if I were to do like you, what does 3DS and WiiU have to do with this thread?

based on the trend lines, it looks like it should easily be able to hit 50+ million sales by the end of its third year, if not skyrocket past it

Congrats Nintendo, well deserved.

I predict the Switch and PS4 will continue this dance all the way up till the PS5 launches. It all comes down to which console has their bigger releases coming up. Both are doing great and as gamers we only win as a result.

except xbox gamers :(

Yeah, 50m+ at years end sounds right, this year should be easily stronger than 2018. was for Switch.

so zelda, mario, smash, kart, and splatoon are already out.  Any major hardware shifters left or will the presence of those and a price decrease keep things going up?

Core Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and Fire Emblem are all system sellers if past handhelds are anything to go by.  Hell Pokemon alone is a bigger system seller than any of Nintendo's other IPs if we are being completely honest.  Also while Bayonetta 3 is not a system seller overall, it will fill the void for a more mature exclusive and help flesh the library out of it drops this year (seeing how Prime 4 is delayed and all).

 

Overall the Switch should sell significantly more this year than last.

This year there's an entirely new Pokemon and Animal Crossing.  And Mario Kart was itself just a port, so MK 9 is a very real possibility for Switch.  Mario Maker is another 1 that could push units.  And a new Zelda or 3D Mario can't be ruled out.

At this point it is very hard to see Switch sales dropping for at least a year, and they could hold steady even if 2020 is weak software-wise just from momentum.  The hardware itself is attractive to consumers.
