The PS2 was price cut to $149 in the US in May 2004 (20 years ago). That is 3.5 years in with a price half the launch cost. Switch has never had a price cut and we are past the 7th year.

Nobody prior to the Switch unveiling could have predicted that a console not from Sony could surpass the PS2 while never getting a price cut.
