Switch reaches 20% market share. I know it's mostly made up by VGC but still, it is an accomplishment.

And also, now the difference between Switch and Xbox One is lower than 8 million

More like estimated.



                                                                                                                                            

I have a feeling Switch will surpase X1 before 2020 hits.

I was more talking about what defines the "market" since it is unclear whether the Switch is in the same market as the PS4 and Xbox One, or it is in the handheld market, or even its own hybrid console market (even some would argue it isn't in the same generation, but I don't agree). You, as VGC, decided to consider the Switch in the same market as the PS4 and Xbox One, replacing the already existent Wii U which was indeed in this market. That's why I was saying "mostly made up by VGC".


But there were already a thread about this so there is no need for further explanation I think

I'm just saying the idea of things being 'made up' is a stretch. Regardless of the market definition of devices, that is an important thing to clarify. I get it, is it 8th or 9th gen. VGC extrapolates the data based on what is available and figures in the math accordingly. So, it's not made up, but estimated based on those variables.



                                                                                                                                            

Yeah, I shouldn't use "made up" which sounds negative, but you did get my point

At the current rate it would take the Xbox and Switch about 5 years to break even with PS4 (due entirely to poor Xbox sales). Another way for them to reach 50% would be for PS4 to basically stop selling. Thats not gonna happen so unless people want to go the distance with this one, I think its safe to call this 50%+ for PS4.

Not a safe call at all tbh.

Using the present rate of gain fails to take into account that while PS4 isn't just going to stop selling, it will decline from here on out, while Switch still has lots of room to grow.

Lifetime, it's quite probable we'll end up looking at around 50 million for Xbone and over 100 million for Switch, so PS4 would have to sell more than 150 million to retain 50% marketshare. Assuming it's not a PS3-tier fuckup, PS5's likely arrival in late 2020 will cut PS4's legs substantially, preventing it from reaching that high.
