NS - 300K
PS4 - 200K
XBO - 150K
What about overall record? I know PS2 did over 500k in 2002 when it got its first price cut and assume Wii or DS had some crazy Mays as well.
Edit: Wii did 675k in May 2008 and I belive thats the overall record.
Edit: After reading this, I'll up my prediction a bit, especially for the Switch

Nintendo Switch: AWWWWW YESSSS
Parents trying to keep all their kids entertained at once: dang what now
Switch Lite: Allow me to introduce myself
As you can see from my argumentation, I'm going to go with 500k.
I believe Switch has a shot at 500k. Provided supply wasnt heavily constrained.
Ill go with
Interested in the numbers since all the consoles (especially Switch) will be affected by supply.
I'm throwing blind, probably because of what Benji said.
NSW : 445K

Thoughts on May NPD sales— Benji-Sales (@BenjiSales) June 12, 2020
- Switch performance is completely spectacular. Far higher sales volume than I expected. It's on track for it's best year in 2020 by FAR. Amazing
- Xbox and PS4 are very solid
- Software is exactly as I expected. Top 3 are COD, GTAV, and Animal Crossing pic.twitter.com/IWxOj8iRXE
