Good thread that was fun to follow throughout the year. If you eventually do a similar thread for Switch 2020 vs PS4 2017, can you post the link here?

Peak year vs peak year... although in the US, PS4 was comparatively weak in 2017, as it stayed under the peak of 2015

Third year for each in this comparison. Switch is ahead even with no major game releases but the most surprising is how little Uncharted and DOOM moved PS4's in May. 

Considering the long burner it has proven to be, you might add Ring Fit Adventure as one of the major releases.

But that was a great job, hope you will make another one for this year, too.

Wow, the switch might end the year with around 6.5 million

lol great prediction, exactly spot on! :)

My predictions are never this good... I am baffled  



US, Japan, France, and Canada are the biggest Switch countries in term of software domination.
