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.

First, where 60:40?

and peaking, who says this? software peaks the year after hardware year peaked. The switch doesn't have your peaked hardware yet( maybe 2021 or 2022).

Your argument was to take the minor market and try to apply the same model for the big markets? And Dominance is 60/40, it's the worst Nintendo performance not the peak hardware year yet. 

Do you see this?
