"The big thing is the Playstation consoles usually have longer legs than Nintendo systems.
Even in 2019, Im expecting 16m+ sold for the year."

 

This is what has made the strength of playstation consoles since ps1, they sell well over time.

For those who doubt the wii numbers it comes from this graph :

Yep, Nintendo system usually peaking on second or third year with steady drop after. Not sure why some people is expecting Switch to peak in 2020 at over 50% increase over 2018 and drop softly after.

I don't know whether Switch's peak is now or in the future, but  if you read my reply to Kerotan you will see my reasons for thinking that the Switch may break away from past Nintendo console sales curves.
