The most impressive thing is that the ps4 sold 17x the Xbox one.

"17x the Xbox one" would be 850m. lol... try 2.3x

no one mentioned lifetime sales, I was talking this last weeks sales.
My point is, people mention that xbox series is not too far behind the ps5, but they forget people are still buying ps4 because they couldn't find a ps5, such doesn't happen in xbox world.
Again, my point is, there is a much bigger market share on PlayStation side, its just not mentioned.
And yes, 17x the sales currently is a massive difference. Imagine if there were ps5 widely available, those could be ps5 sales.

The switch is not on the same generation as these new consoles, the switch launched years before.

Please not again. Wii U was Gen 8 together with PS4 and Xbox One, Switch is Gen 9 together with PS5 and Xbox Series. Sega Dreamcast was released 3 years before Gamecube, but it is also Gen 6. Switch doesn't play Wii U discs. It is a new generation. Power doesn't say anything about generation, because Wii was also Gen 7 together with PS3 and X360.

Wrong, Nintendo generations are different than playstation or xbox, in fact xbox is on generation 4, playstation is on generation 5 and so on.
Not only is the switch not on the same generation as these new consoles, you forget the main fact the switch is a portable console, so not even comparable. There is no competitor for the switch because the Vita was previous generation.

Vita wasn't a hybrid console.
