It doesn’t matter. Switch is a handheld which was recently confirmed with the release of the Switch Lite.
Handhelds/tablets don’t compete with REAL consoles.
It was obvious to everyone but sheep and they wouldn’t listen. They still won’t listen. Half of them claim it’s competing with PS4/Xbone while the other half claim its a next gen console.
The damn switch even uses SD carts like the 3DS handhelds. REAL consoles use discs, streaming and downloads.
1) Switch is a hybrid console. No matter how hard you try and fight this, you're still wrong. Just accept it. The release of the Switch lite CONFIRMS this by being the handheld exclusive option of the console. As will the "pro" version most likely becoming the main "console" exclusive option.
2) Handhelds compete for our game share just like anything else.
