So Switch > PS4 + Xbone by quite a bit.

Also, out of curiosity, do these numbers include the launch of Luigi's Mansion 3, or is that counetd for November since that week ended on the 2nd of this month?

PS4 and Xbox One are down by a fair amount year over year. While the Switch Lite has done a great job boosting Switch sales.

I don't set what weeks are in each month I just grab the monthly numbers off of VGC Pro. But LM3 launch week is counted toward November. So if there's any discrepancies with NPD, what weeks are counted are off by one.

This perspective is definitely more eye opening. The more recent gaps are much more obvious from a monthly point of view. Switch a little ahead of PS4, but both are miles ahead of XB1. I wonder how early the holidays will start for MS come 2020?



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.

What's also illuminating about these numbers if how rapidly Switch is closing in on Xbox One; according these figures, in October alone the gap between them shrank by 1.1 million.

If Black Friday is big enough the Switch could surpass the Xbox One by the end of November. If not it will pass it by the end of the year.

I'm still of the opinion that Switch can (and will, unless Nintendo stupidly cut it short prematurely) catch up and outsell the Wii eventually. 

Wii got 4 years of support, then was abandoned overnight. Unless the make the same mistake again, Switch can last longer and leg it to victory.

PS4 fell behind quickly and in the end was able to outsell the Wii. Switch has been keeping up with PS4 sales when you align the launches. Switch Lite could push sales above the PS4. But either way I'd say the Switch will likely catch up to the Wii after 5~ years.
