The discussion was about those in Korea, Taiwan or China, not Worldwide. And there, PC gaming is much more prevalent than console gaming, and as a result, they don't need to buy an extra console for those games.

Also, cheaper is not fully true either. A console is cheaper than a PC with similar specs (especially now when GPUs are almost unobtainable except from scalpers), but the games are generally cheaper on PC.

As for the big growth, we'll have to see. PS5 is outpacing the PS4 so far, but the console is only out for half a year and thus we don't have any long-term trends yet. But I agree the situation is favorable for the PS5 to grow potentially in Korea, China and Taiwan, and in RoW in general right now.

This is evidently wrong as Playstation continues to grow showing that yes, people will buy an extra console. Its like you're struggling with the reality that Playstation sells well and continues to grow in Asia.

wrong? The Numbers show Nintendo Switch dominance in the Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. We discuss east asia sales not global, try to deviate the argument not make your point valid. In Japan and East Asia( Media creat covered market) have Nintendo dominance, not sony. The rest is make belief. 

A 60:40 software ratio on a 7 year old PS4 vs SW peak is hardly dominating. Even in Japan, a leaving PS4 has 25% of software sales. Nintendo''s dominance in Japan doesn't mean Sony does not have significant marketshare.

Where do you see that 60/40 ratio? Can you link me to a source?

As for Japan, it's 21%, not 25%, and almost half of it comes alone from FF VII Remake. And having that game not even pass the million mark in Japan where the original sold almost 3.3M shows that PS4 was actually hindering it's sales in Japan. In other words, having only 21% with FF VIIR releasing is very low and nothing to brag about. And let's not even get into PS5 software sales, which has an attach ratio of below 1 so far.
