-6.7% is rather impressive for a device as old as the Switch. Keep it going.
And Xbox Series doing +10% is remarkable considering things.

Hahaha. In Japan, yes. In the Americas, no. PS5 is doing amazing in the Americas. Hopefully Switch can get boosted by the Americas (excluding USA), considering that the USA is close to maxed out.

PS5 is 650k behind Switch in the US launch aligned and currently it doesn't look like that PS5 is able to close the gap.

Yep, that’s true! But it has been doing well for a +$500 gaming device that had a huge set back with hardware shipments.
PS5 best sells in Europe.
I hope that the Americas continues to grow for the Switch.
I expect a large portion of their 13.5M FY prediction to come from the Americas (maybe 50% USA, 50% rest of Americas).
