Cool, thanks. :) Was trying to think of comparisons we hadn't had yet.

It's a shame we don't have accurate tracking for older systems, it'd be cool to see, say, Switch vs PS1.

If you come up with any more ideas for Gap Charts feel free to let me know. I do agree it is a shame we can't do comparisons with anything older than the 7th generation. 

Cheers, will do. :) Looking forward to seeing how Switch vs PS3 and Switch vs 360 pan out.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'd be interested to see a comparison of Switch with 360 and PS3 individually, since a lot of people's predictions have Switch landing close to those systems lifetime.

I've taken a quick look and the Switch is current light years ahead of the 360 and PS3 after 31 months. Xbox 360 is at 18.7M and the PlayStation 3 is at 20.9M. That is well below the 38.75M the Switch has sold to date. The 360 and PS3 had a long lifespan, so it is possible in a few years the gap will start to close.

That XBOX Gap.
The Switch has come a long way.

All but certain the Switch will surpass the Xbox One before the end of the year.

So Switch is tracking almost as well as PS3+360?

So was the PlayStation 4 during the same time frame. Even the Xbox One was tracking above the Xbox 360. The current big three platforms all had bigger starts than the PS3 and X360. The PS4 outsold them both a while ago and is about to outsell the Wii and PS1. The Switch should outsell them as well. The Xbox One while it had a decent start sales have fallen behind where the Xbox 360 was during the same time frame.

I like the 3DS+WiiU one. It will be interesting to see how that holds up after January.

And it's almost the same question as: "can it outsell the PS3"?

Switch is doing very good, even compared to Wii U+3DS.
