Switch is 9th gen.
BotW is on WiiU so that.
If this poll included 9th gen it would be Splatoon 2 / Switch.

I cannot pick just one.

 

Wii U has Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, Xenoblade X and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Botw.

PS4 has Yakuza 0, Nier Automata, Astebreed on disc, Assault Suit Leynos, Odin Sphere HD, Persona  5, Wonder Boy and more.  I like PS4 more than Wii U but they both have some of my favorite games in years.

Switch is like Schrödinger's cat, it's both 8th and 9th gen until we open the box, or in this case until more systems are released so we have the data to correctly group the Switch based on time.

 

OT: Rocket League.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Bloodborne, followed closely by Dark Souls 3.

Breath of the Wild.



MP wise Halo 5, SP wise the Witcher 3.

It is a gen above the WiiU, which was a gen above the Wii.
The Wii was 7th gen, making the Switch 9th gen.

From a power perspective, it is a turbo 7th gen console (compared to PS360) or a lackluster 8th gen unit (compared to the twins).

If we based a generation on power then a high end computer (multi GPU) could be considered 9th, 10th or even 11th gen.
But they aren't.

We don't base a generation on power, it's based on it's peers in time.

Generations aren't based on a single manufacturers release schedule either, they're industry-wide generations. Switch is a new generation for Nintendo, but (7th,8th,9th) are industry-wide generations, thus the next-release equals +1 generation defintion doesn't apply.

Could the Switch spend the majority of it's lifespan prior to the release of a ps5/xbox 2?. Could the Switch's release date end up being closer to the PS4/XBO release date then the PS5/XB2... it's possible as well.

Hence the Switch is neither 8th or 9th gen, it's yet to be determined.
