    It may have gotten a head start start, but it could not keep its pace.

    And Nintendo is going to release a cheaper Switch version, I will not be surprised if that will jump the Switch's sales further.

    I fell a lot of people are buying used PS4 which causes fewer people to buy fewer new PS4 which cause the Switch to outsell the PS4. The Switch is also a handheld console which can attract more buyers who also want a handheld.
