Michael Pachter isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but the analyst’s word is often taken very seriously by those in the video games industry. While he once predicted that the Switch would fail, Pachter is now suggesting that Nintendo’s latest console will outsell the Xbox One in 2017. With the release of the Xbox One X, this would certainly be disappointing for Microsoft. Do you think Pachter is right? Tell us below.
“[It will be] close .. I would say Switch could sell as many as 14 million, and if that happens, then that’s more than Xbox One. Xbox One is probably going to sell about 10-11 million, but again Microsoft doesn’t tell you and there is no way to measure anymore. But I think Xbox One is on track to sell 10-11 Million a year, Switch is gonna do that 10-11 could sell more but it really depends and I need to get through to a holiday season to see.”
