Right now, it's going to be interesting to see if Japan accepts the PS5, considering how Sony are focusing more and more on western tastes and preferences. Still, even if it becomes successful the Switch is going to stay as the de facto console over there, especially when Monster Hunter releases. It's going to be massive over there, probably reaching PSP levels of sales.
Yes, at now, PS5 is in the extremely difficult situation. It seems that quite a lot of shipments bought up only for resale purposes because software sales have been quite a low number. So, current sales number is completely meaningless and we can see only the real demand is known after they are gone. A serious problem is that there isn't any software drives the PS5's market and it isn't planned near future...
