So it took the Switch just 2 years and 9 months to sell what it took the Xbox One 6 years to achieve. That is both amazing for Nintendo and pathetic for Microsoft.
I will say, I think Microsoft has done all the right things throughout this generation to regain some momentum and put 'Scarlett' in a position to have more sales than the Xbox One ever did. It'll boil down to their first party offerings.
As for the Switch, I think 2020 has just as good of a chance of being the peak year as 2019. It'll depend on what is being offered. Animal Crossing is a big one, for sure. It's the biggest title the Switch has gotten in Q1 since Breath of the Wild. But it's going to need a lot more than that. I think a price cut may be on the way next year: Lite model goes to $170 and the upgraded base model goes to $250. I'm 85% certain that we're getting the next 3D Mario game next year as well. I think Pokemon Gen 4 remakes are also a strong possibility. I'm not too certain about Breath of the Wild 2, however. I think that's going to be a 2021 title. But I think the combination of Animal Crossing + 3D Mario + Pokemon Gen 4 remakes + a price cut would be a strong lineup of A tier titles to have at the top of the card for 2020. They'll also need some good, solid B tier titles in the back to support those titles and keep momentum steady. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a good start, but it needs more. Furthermore, I think we're due for 1 big, major 3rd party game that will be a system seller. *COUGHMonsterHunterCOUGH*
The potential is there, but we need to see results. And soon... Man, I'd sure love a general Nintendo Direct right about now.
