These numbers must be a bit off, I'm in the UK and I barely see anyone with a switch and most people I know have a ps4, and back home in Portugal, its like at least 20 ps4 for any switch I see, mostly because back home there's never sales on games, switch games are 75 euros, peoples wages are 600 euros, in fact I've never met one person with a switch, besides me, maybe its a much bigger deal in USA.

Anecdotal evidence is of limited practical use; when I was a teen I knew way more people in my friendship circle with an Xbox than with a PS2, yet the PS2 sold 6 times as much.

Year on Year Sales & Market Share Charts - February 8, 2020

Here we see data representing the global sales through to consumers and change in sales performance of the four home consoles and four handhelds over comparable periods for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.  Also shown is the market share for each of the consoles over the same periods.

Year to Date Sales Comparison (Same Periods Covered)

 

Looking at peak year PS4 (2018) and peak year Switch (2020, so far at least) it's impressive how close they are. It bodes very well for Switch that it's closely following the sales of a console that is heading for about 130m units sold lifetime.

Switch is keeping pace with PS4 so far and even DS. Though, it would take something insane for the Switch to reach DS (and PS2) sales. With the Wii to Wii U to Switch it goes to show success or failure in a generation doesn't mean the same thing will happen the following generation.

Switch was over tracked by a million or so for 2019 so I reckon this year will be the same.

But who knows.
