Because he doesn't consider the Switch a home console (which it is by Nintendo's own words) most probably and keeps his argument to the age old arbitrary gen frame, which is funny since gens hardly mean anything after every other manufacturer has done hardware upgrades. Oh well, anything to fit the argument I guess. Let's pretend the Switch is not stomping the PS4 in Japan.
Let's be clear. The Switch is stomping the PS4 because it's a handheld (hybrid=home+handheld, remember?), and handhelds have been stomping home consoles for years. The Japanese market is on the go, not in the living room.
Like I said before, it's no surprise that Nintendo did a hybrid. They needed a portable console if they wanted some success here.Last edited by Faelco - on 25 August 2018
