It depends on two key factors.
1: How many Switch and Switch Lites Nintendo can ship to meet the demand. $199 for the Switch Lite will put it more in the price range of parents more willing to buy one for their kids.
2: How low is Microsoft willing to go for Xbox One deals this holiday season. Rumors are showing Xbox One S for as low as $149. Microsoft previously said the All-Digital Edition would remain $50 below the standard Xbox One S, so could mean the digital edition available for as low as $99.
Rumors are for the digital edition at $149, not the standard S model.
Either way the cheaper Xbox One than a year ago will help keep sales from dropping too much this holiday. At least in the US. Not that it will be enough to stop the Switch from outselling it by the end of the year.
