Both Microsoft and Sony are coming out with their latest gaming hardware in November, which no doubt means millions of people will be getting an Xbox Series X/S or PS5 as a holiday gift. With that said, launch supplies are sure to be constrained. That should leave a nice window for the Switch to continue its success, so much so that NPD believes Nintendo's platform will be the best-selling of the holiday.
Nintendo Switch will be the best-selling console of holiday 2020 – Switch will also be a hot holiday gifting item with more households picking up multiple Switch consoles in the fourth quarter. The lack of available inventory of new PlayStations and Xbox systems will leave Switch as an appealing available option (although supply may still be difficult to find).
