Switch leap frogs X1 next week then as far so sold to consumer goes while shipments at this point are pretty much all but above X1 the remaining weeks of the year will be how close to the SNES milestone can the platform get as it's currently 4.5m off the SNES.
Last year Switch sold another 5.63m after Black Friday. So even if it was flat YoY, Switch will end the year 50.2m easily beating the Snes!
Black Friday week was up by 19% YoY, so if the rest of the year followed it'd end the year with 51.2m, but without the boost from Smash Bros 2018 got it's difficult to say whether this year will be Up, Flat or even slightly down. I don't really know what to expect!
But outselling the SNES by the end of the year is pretty much guaranteed. Should be anywhere from 49.9m-51.3m
20.3m - 21.7m sales for the year, I think I lost the bet. I don't see 2020 beating 2019 anymore. If it does it'll be very close.
edit: One less week this year after Black Friday than last... so probably closer to 19.3m-20.7m sales for 2019. So there is a chance it doesn't quite beat the SNES this year imo.
