Well, I guess the whole "Switch is only up yoy in 2020 because of COVID" theory has been disproven

Not necessarily. Changes to society and spending patterns didn't stop 12/31/20. People are still vacationing less than they used to, still working from home in industries that can do it, and therefore still more likely to buy smaller entertainment purchases (rather than Disney World trips). The bigger question is if and when that bump will go away. I'm thinking, to a degree, there will be a permanent shift in smaller purchase entertainment (such as video games) going forward because of COVID.

This. Switch sales went through the roof due to COVID and we’re still seeing the effects of Covid (wfh, stimulus etc).
