It’s very interesting how the DS had quite a slow start, but ended up becoming the second best selling game system ever.

Looks great except there is no way to take into account that SWITCH launched during the slow part of the year for console and game sales. SWITCH's first holiday month will be when the November numbers come out. I't first full holiday sales season will be late January. It could catch up and pass ds by then.

Can't wait to pick one up to replace my 3DS.
