and the X1 drops to below 50k globally per week, means the Switch gets to eat 1/8th of a million out of that X1 lead over the Nintendo beast in a week, with all the games coming to the Switch between now and Christmas this holiday season is going to be a massacre for the Switch unless something major happens from either of the other 2 camps before then, heck.... the main upset I could see coming to the table between now and Xmas would be a Switch-Lite and the subsequent reduction in price that the base model might see from that. Between Mario Maker 2, Luigi's Mansion 3 and the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield (just occurred to me this is the first time I think that Pokemon games have the same initial.... as in Blue/Red, G/S, R/S, D/P, B/W, S/M... and it's gonna be Pokemon S/S, it's a good thing those initials have no bad links to them!) then Nintendo is going to have a very jolly Christmas indeed. Unless all of their upcoming titles bomb!, who knows it has happened before like on the Wii-U where a bunch of titles like star fox zero ended up in the yellow on metacritic and helped to tank that system.
Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
