Nah. What I've seen is some users arguing that the boost is partly due to people being at home in lockdown. Switch is selling like crazy. It's earned its sales. I'm confused as to why one reason for the boost should be worse than another.

I think everybody can agree Covid was of utterly importance for Switch boost, but now it's mid-october and business are back to normality in big markets (USA, Japan, Europe, Australia) for quite someone now and yet Switch YOY growth still here 

I don't know about those other regions, but as someone living in the USA, business is not at all back to normality!  The company I work for is still 100% virtual, as are many others. Most forms of entertainment (movie theaters, concert halls/stadiums, bars/restaurants, amusement parks, etc) are still closed, or have very limited capacity, and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.  The covid boost will continue to make video games a high demand industry until all of these other things are open like before, and probably after that as well, now that many more people have been exposed to it than before.
