"PS4 was $399 it's first three years"

Yes and not up against considerable competition.

So the XBOX ONE, PC, and 3DS/WIIU aren't competition. 

They are competition just not considerable competition save for PC but PC has just about always been relevant.

I think I should have made clear that often times, I see some impressed by the PS4's sales. One can see this going through

For whatever reason however, no potential caveats are ever brought up. I have yet to see any mention of PS4 and PS4 Pro sales figures being lumped in together for example.

The point is why would anyone care about different models of the same console being lumped together.  I would like a breakdown, but that wouldn't change my perception that PS4 is still on par, so far, with NSW on weekly hardware sales.

Are you trying to say something about actual install base? Like 94m PS4s might be actually smaller cause some PS4 owners have both this or that SKU?  Id counter with how many NSW owners have multiple in the household because kids and portability.  When the Switch has new SKUs how many sales will go to households that already own one or more?  How can we possibly break this down into knowable double dippers?  Want an asterisk?  I guess won't change most peoples opinions.  

This is why we have hardware _and_ software.  The software is the real story in terms of money potential.  Of course software stats on this site are kinda neutered now.

I'm just wondering why, when tallying up PS4 sales and comparing them to Switch sales, the existence of alternate PS4 models is never considered.
