The Switch is catching up steadily. Could surpass the DS in 2024.

I don't think it's going to make it. The line of the gap chart is flattening out slowly but surely. I think Switch will top out at around 30M. I'd say a tiny bit above, but about 2-2.5M under the DS/GameBoy duo. Ridiculously good result either way though.

There's a chance for Xbox Series to outsell the Xbox 360 in Japan.

The original Xbox is going to be defeated soon, and the Xbox One is already eating dust.
