No offense but this kinda comes off as just wanting a way to make the Switch not look as good. 

Comparing one console against two from other companies with combined  totals of 180 million plus is kinda pointless.



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)

ignore him he's just a hater



I don't see the Switch outselling the DS unless it continues with good sales after its successor releases.

I don't think the idea is pointless since it could help give further perspective of where the Switch will likely stop at by seeing how close it is to those totals.

Switch is currently tracking significantly behind DS, launch aligned, but it is also tracking significantly ahead of PS2.  Of course the former system had the worst legs of any successful system while the latter had the best legs.  Switch really only needs decent legs to outsell both.  It doesn't need a tail end like the PS2 to outsell the PS2.  However, it does need a tail end better than the DS to outsell the DS, and that is actually not that difficult.

The DS is basically impossible to outsell before the tail end years anyway.  It's the only system to have 30m+ fiscal years.
