I think that, at least going by this particular bill, that's unlikely.

I don't think a game console can be fairly considered a general purpose device. Particularly the Switch, which has very limited features outside gaming.

Also, the bill requires a user base of 50,000,000. I think Switch is around 30 million ATM? So, it may or may not ever reach the threshhold. But, keep in mind 50 million units sold doesn't mean 50,000,000 users in the app store. I'm guessing it would be less. It depends how that is defined, the statute is pretty vague.

It seems like this would likely be limited mostly to cell phone/pc markets. I don't see it hitting gaming devices.
