This is console hardware sales comparison thread just like that on @PAOerfulone is maintaining every single week. However this thread will be full of comparisons with different consoles and years and not in the typical way like year over year or the same point in time, but just years of consoles that are likely for the current consoles on the market to match or to finish close by end of the current calendar year. In other words - competition.

For Nintendo Switch I am giving it battle with the best one - NDS 2007 year (best 52 week year). I am also adding Switch vs DS'09 year too, because Switch is way behind DS'07 numbers, therefore we have to give it easier challenge. This is 2009 year of the DS where it did 27M for the year, much more reachable number for the Switch. If it falls further than that too, I may make Switch vs Wii'08 year with 24M.

PS5 vs NSW'18 as PS5 is tracking decently ahead for now than PS4'14 which reached 14.4M, so it needs better challenge. NSW did 16.3M in 2018.

XBOX Series vs XBOX 360 2009, because XBOX Series is making much much better than XB1 in 2014, and even better than the peak XB1 year - 2015 and is on track to hit 10M for the year. The 2009 year for the 360 made 10.3M so it will be good challenge for the XBOX Series. With the holiday periods not so strong back than, the new XBOX Series shouldn't have any problem making out the difference approaching the holiday period.

As for the old gen consoles - PS4 and XB1, they are going further away from their respectable predecessors in the same point in time - 2014. That's why I made another comparisons for them too. For PS4 the comparison is with 360 from 2014, which did 2.7M which should be close to what PS4 will do this year. For XB1 I compared the 2015 year because it's going to hit around 1M, and 2015 of 360 is almost 1M.
