Out of the four that are ahead of it, the Switch should have no probl ma passing the Wii and GBA.
3DS is going to be a tougher battle that I am not entirely sure of. I don’t think it’s going to catch the DS.

Reaching Gameboy and DS will be extremly tough, but beating the 3DS for a spot on the podium seems pretty feasible to me. Remember the 3DS was pretty frontloaded, I'm sure next year Switch will start outselling the 3DS in the yearly sales in Japan

Oh, I'm not saying it won't beat the 3DS. It has a chance, just not a surefire thing. As of now, I'd say it's 50/50. 



Yeah I think it has a very good chance of beating the 3DS in Japan. Think it'll end up in the high 20 milllions in Japan.



Well yeah, Switch will probably be 20m+ in Japan, at end of this year will be at 7m+, and thats in less than 2 years and still without price cut.

Intersting to see ps4 just winning psvita. 

If you go back a few years most on here didn't think ps4 would outsell the vita. I'm actually surprised their console beat their handheld because the ps3 sold about half the PSP. 

Is that really surprise? Vita is one worst selling platforms ever, while PS4 will be one best selling platform ever, talking only about Japan, Vita will maybe hit 6m in while PSP sold around 20m.

Because Vita only sold a fraction of psp?
