Which console will "win" 2019? PS4 and Switch fought it for top spots all through 2018, but Nintendo's hybrid console can retire to management in 2019. GamesIndustry.biz asked several top industry analysts, including Dr. Serkan Toto, Michael Pachter and NPD Group Food Piscatella for their 201
"Switch will be the best-selling console in 2019 as PS4 and Xbox One shifted into the last stage of their sales life cycle. We can get more details on how Nintendo aims to reconnect the gap in the portfolio with the downward 3DS platform, one option not to do anything and stick to the current Switch strategy, it simplifies the platform strategy, but cannot be the most commercially effective. "
And here's Piscatella's prediction …
Related Xbox Game Pass Full January summary includes only cause 3, absolute and more  "In console hardware, Switch grows, [and] leader [the] ] market, I have Switch achieved more than 35 pieces of hardware device sales in the US in 2019, with Pokémon and still strengthening Nintendo's evergreen franchise driving the performance. "
Interestingly, more analysts assume that new Switch models will be offered in 2019. Dr. Toto, who has a very solid track record in terms of predictions, expects Nintendo to launch both Switch Pro and Lite this year.
This is a crash year for Sony and Microsoft, while Switch should take its step, so Nintendo console is # 1 sensible. I also think that a smaller, cheaper manufactured, portable switch is very likely to come this year – a 4K-compatible Pro model is probably also in the works, but we may have to wait a little longer for that. It will also be interesting to see if Microsoft can retire to other places because of the Xbox Game Pass and the release of a rumored streaming-only machine.
