Any day now....

No, the new things to say is "it's losing momentum" or "demand is decreasing", haven't you heard? The system is cooling off, and the momentum is being lost. It will not even reach 50m.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

With Tomb Raider, DQXI,Spider-Man, its inevitable. 

Do you have any expectations when after that Switch will have a chance to take the spot again (besides holidays as I would say most are expecting Switch to be the best selling more often than not)?

I'm guessing around November is when Switch will get the lead back in NPD

Early October I would say, when Super Mario releases.

I also think that from there on the Switch will stay on top for the rest of the year safe for a couple weeks with big releases on PS4

November and December I'm almost sure Switch will have most weeks ahead. And I was more thinking WW instead of NPD.

Not sure Party will have this big effect, but yes on the week of its release it shall lead.  And sure there is good chance that before Holidays Switch get some weeks for itself.

It seems to be a way better game than Mario Tennis Aces, so why not.

Indeed, why not? I'm just not sure it will, but sure could.
