Switch is a hybrid console. The vita was the last ever dedicated handheld platform to release. The market just moved on from them. 

Switch is both a handheld and home console. I'm using it exclusively as a handheld for example. You're just using the "hybrid" bullshit as an excuse to fabricate a narrative.

Market hasn't moved away from anything, except Playstation handhelds that is. 

The Switch is successful because it delivers home console experiences on the go. Something which Sony promised with the Vita, but they failed horribly. The fact that you can play Switch games on your TV as well is just a great bonus that boosts sales even further. 

If you're going to deny the hybrid status of the Switch, then the only remaining route is "handheld with a TV dock". So which is it? Dockable handheld, or a hybrid?

Switch is successful for a lot of reasons, not just that it's a hybrid. It also launched with one of the highest rated games of all time and had a full-fledged 3D Mario title in the first 7 months. As a portable, many (not all, but many) households are getting multiple units, as it is difficult to share portables.

Did I mention Zelda? I mentioned Zelda.

 

And Vita failed because Sony didn't back it or handle it properly at all. It should have launched at $200, with an unlocked 3G model for $250. And Sony should have released an updated model with R2/R3/L2/L3 (and older models could make use of legacy touch controls). Oh, and fucking games.

People love the game so much that they are buying when they can't even play it!

My friend had a copy MH World in his apartment, so I asked him when he had bought an XBox (he's a huge Nintendo fan). He said that he didn't have one, but was going to buy one to play MH!

After 4 years he isn't interested in the offers from MS itself but decided to buy MH for X1? Is he waiting for any MS game or he just don't like PS4?

I really couldn't tell you! He didn't really say why he was getting an X1, but I never thought him the type. If it were me, I'd go PS4 all the way. I'm definitely going to ask him more about it!



Switch: purchased. Fire Emblem and Smash Bros. Ultimate time!

This gen if someone isn't really interested in MS few exclusives it would make more sense to buy PS4... unless he is talking about X1X, them I would understand he picking it if he doesn't care about Sony exclusives.
