You have to account for the different launch timings of the Xbox One and Switch. The current cutoff in a launch-aligned comparison has the Xbox One go through two holiday seasons already while the Switch only has one. If you project what the comparison will look like at the 24-month-cutoff - which is the fairest comparison that can be made because both consoles will have gone through every month of the year twice - you'll be looking at a comfortable Switch lead of ~2m.

xbox one launched at a ridiculous 500$, i think that should be accounted for as well, i think only the extremely hardcore xbox fans would pay that much. 

Given how quickly the Xbox One price was cut to $400 and given how frequent special deals have been in the first 24 months of availability, what needs to be accounted for is that the Xbox One's momentum isn't as healthy as Switch's, therefore increasing the likelihood that Switch sells more than the Xbox One lifetime in the USA. The health of momentum has also been an important point in Switch vs. 3DS comparisons, hence why things are looking good for the people who placed their bets on Switch to sell more than the 3DS lifetime on a global basis.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
