Base Switch nearly 4:1 over the Lite; really goes to show that "Japan only cares for handhelds" is an oversimplification. 

Exactly. I was one of them thinking the Lite would be like half of the sales.

This situation really shows that Nintendo cannot left the home console market and that the hybrid option is really the best way. Shows that they will definitely  do a "Switch 2" next gen, and i'm thinking that's why they are keeping the Switch low in OS options so they can bring more stuff as an argument.
