The PS4 and Xbox One have entered their last years, and the Switch can highlight itself. So, what analysts think about this topic?

Speaking to GamesIndustry, Piers Harding-Rolls, IHS Markit said, “Switch will be the best selling console in 2019 as PS4 and Xbox One shift into the late stage phase of their sales lifecycles. We could have several hardware announcements next year: Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation reveals, and we may get more details on how Nintendo aims to plug the gap in its portfolio left by the declining 3DS platform. One option is to do nothing and stick with the current Switch strategy. That simplifies the platform strategy but may not be the most commercially efficient. I also think we’ll hear more about a next-gen PSVR in 2019.”

Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group agreed, saying that he sees the Switch as having the largest market share in the US in 2019, on the back of Pokemon and continued performance of Switch evergreens.

“I have Switch achieving more than 35 share of hardware unit sales in the US in 2019, with Pokémon and continued strength of Nintendo’s evergreen franchises driving the performance,” he said.
