That’s based on an evaluation from IHS Markit says that Swap’s robust momentum will propel Nintendo forward of Microsoft this yr. That’s regardless of Microsoft and the Xbox One having a years lengthy lead over the Swap.
Sony is anticipated to remain at primary in 2018.
Lastly, IHS Markit expects Nintendo to promote 12.eight million Swap consoles this yr. Which sounds fairly cheap, given how the Swap carried out in its first yr.
