A console tends to be at its most profitable during its latter years when it has a large install base. You can look at the chart below and see this with PS4. (Most recent fiscal year is not listed, but it is about the same as 2019.) Switch is younger than PS4 so it still has a couple of years until it reaches it's most profitable time. So even though Nintendo > Sony in profits right now, that gap is going to keep widening. Basically we ain't seen nothing yet when it comes to Nintendo's profit from the Switch.
