If Switch sales are down less than 16.5% year-on-year in November it should outsell the PS4 by the end of November. If not it would outsell the PS4 in early December.

Gonna be strange once the PS4 to Switch charts are over, but it's gonna be cool to see the conclusion.
Gameboy next, though I personally think #3 is where of all time is where it will stop, though there's no shame in that, still a fantastic achievement.



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)

The DS Hardware total will still be hard to beat but after it's sixth full year sales tanked and this is where switch can make up some ground.

It comes down to the legs of the Switch. The gap will be closer than it is now by the end, but hard to say if it has enough to surpass the DS (and PS2) by the end.
