Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo Switch Outsells Xbox One Worldwide

I know it's a coincidence, but how fitting that two days after the numbers come in showing Switch has outsold Xbox One, MS reveal the next Xbox.

That is rather fitting and likely a coincidence. Microsoft is likely going to go all out to start the next generation on the right foot.

Shame about the name though. I can see a lot of casuals being confused on what the "Series X" is supposed to be.

It'll be "Is the Wii U just a tablet add-on to the Wii?" all over again.

So in the end it took 2 years 9 months to close the gap, with Xbone getting a head start of 3 years 4 months.



PS4 is the next target

Luck isn't needed here, just BOTW 2, Next 3d Mario, and more Pokemons.

Let's just take it one console at a time. It has a chance of doing it but the PS4 is still selling well and has yet to have a price drop in God knows how long.

Switch is a beast but so is the ps4. 



One step at a time; as far as systems from rival companies go, the next target is the PSP.



As a big fan of both consoles (definitely the bigger Nintendo fan but plays XB One quite a bit more than Switch - mostly b/c of Overwatch), I am happy for Nintendo, though the XB One definitely deserves more love - just can't seem to crack that Japanese market. It's definitely impressive the Switch managed to outpace it by such a degree - its huge, diverse library, strength of its ips like Mario and Pokemon, Switch lite release, & the added value of its handheld functionality all are contributors that make it tough for MS to contend with.

I was gonna ask you to refresh my memory on who gifted us this quote, but then I remembered I can't talk as I also predicted before Switch's launch that it would bomb. XD

Yours truly will never live this down.
