To think there was a time Switch was tracking 11 million behind the Wii, and now it's going to outsell it in under 5 years.

And people kept predicting Switch would have a similar trajectory.

Pretty much every console that outsold the Wii tracked behind it until several years down the road. Wii had an insane few years before sales dropped.

360's slow start means XS shouldn't lose its lead even with the holiday shortages, and the gap should start to widen again in January.



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

The big question is the later 360 years as it got a big boost from Kinect for a couple of Holidays.

Yeah while I expect it to outsell the Xbone, I don't think XS will be able to beat the 360 due to the older system's long shelf life and late gen boost.
