These 'Switch will stopping selling when PS5/Nextbox come out' claims also seem to forget:

- NES kept selling after the Megadrive released

- SNES kept selling after the PS1 and Saturn released

- PS1 kept selling after the Dreamcast released

- PS2 kept selling after the Xbox 360 released

Basically, it's not at all unusual for successful hardware to continue selling after far more powerful hardware releases.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 games that came out in the first few years were better than what was on the previous systems - in some cases a lot better, but a majority of the big Triple A games still looked of 6th gen quality or didn't look that different and have aged terribly. By the time the PS5 comes out, Switch will not only have games that look significantly worse than a PS5 game already at it's launch, but nearly all of it's games will look worse than the PS4's games.

It's not really equivalent.

Switch will still not be as far behind as DS was behind PS3/360 or 3DS behind PS4/Xbone.
