Its two predecessors sold 89.5 million units combined according to Nintendo, (13.56 + 75.94) so as of the latest weekly numbers, Switch has outsold them both.
Early in the Switch's life is was often argued by some that because it was replacing them both, it would have to sell better than both to be a success. This number was also often held up as the maximum potential audience for Switch, as the sum total of their previous home console and handheld install base.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
