Does the Switch Lite sales contribute to the main switch sales even though it's purely handheld so should be in the handheld section?!

Yes their both a Switch.
I'd argue that both are handhelds as well.

The dock just allows it to draw abit more power than a handheld normally would.

Also we dont need a handheld section do we?
Nintendo is the only one in it, and its competiteing agains traditional consoles.
Atm nintendo is the entire handheld market.

Depends how quickly the PS4 dies off after the PS5 launch. If it continues to sell as the PS2 did, I don't think Switch will catch it. If it doesn't, then sometime in 2023.

It wont have nearly as strong post-successor legs as PS2. A few reasons being

1. emerging markets now get the consoles at or near the same time as the main markets.

2. PS3 released 5 years after PS2 while PS5 is releasing 7 years after PS4.

3. PS4 will never get close to the price that PS2 got to.

2000 and 2006 (2007 in EU) So not 5 years
