i think week 89 is the last week the Series has any chance of being above the Switch in terms of sales. After that... Switch took a huge boost upwards that neither PS5 nor Series can likely catch.

Switch is not in the same market. Portable handheld versus home consoles. Let's be honest. I don't think Xbox and PS buyers even consider the Switch for the most part.

it's not a home console

the VITA and the PSP were the same, could be connected to the TV and nobody cared lol, because Sony had two different products

the genius of Nintendo is failing in the home console market and then you don't have a CHOICE so people actually started connecting their portable to their TVs
