As the holiday season quickly approaches, Nintendo is decimating the competition. Even if Sony is winding down, preparing for the launch of the PlayStation 5, this is unacceptable. The Nintendo Switch continues to gain momentum worldwide and will continue to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. If Sony isn’t careful, they may just be overtaken.
