PS4 had 0 competition, was a force in first party exclusives, had it's moment in japan when Nintendo transitionned from 3DS to Switch.
PS5 will start stronger with covid boost and whatever, but lifetime it's kinda way too early. I will say no. I don't see Sony dominating as much as they did with the PS4. We can see it probably will continue the decline in Japan. In the US i think the Xbox series X/S can put up a better fight in mid/late gen when Bethesda and their other studios starts pumping up great first party titles.

Switch started pretty slow, it was constantly on droughts for the first year and took off slowly until it's 4th year. I think the PS5 will probably trend a little higher until Switch hi 2020 and then we will see what happens from that point. But PS5 will never have a 30 million year like Switch is having right now.

I wouldn't say Switch started slow because that would be the equivalent of saying the PS4 started slow:

Launch aligned PS4 and Switch were very close for the first three years. The only reason you see them trading place like that is because of the launch dates being different. 

So right out the gate, Switch did as well as PS4 and then in the its fourth year it went into overdrive (making its first few years look slow by comparison)

Signature goes here!
