We continue to compare apples with oranges, and this will keep going for ever. PS4 is an old Home Console, Switch a reletavely new portable from Nintendo. Can people realize that it is silly to compare sales of PS4 and Switch in 2019 and 2020 ? This is much more silly than reiterating what I have just said; Switch is the new Nintendo gimmick, it belongs to its own generation, and it's not even competing directly with Playstation, as it offers a completely different game experience, and absolutely almost nothing new to play lately; it can sell very good just because of the hardware, it is considered a Toy by many american people who are buying it for their kids. Parents can play together with kids, and many people do not even have enough time to sit on a comfortable sofa and play videogames. Some can just play in their spare time, during the lunch break, or between lessons at school or University. In a place like Japan it is a lot related to their life style and "Social side". Is it so important to waste pages and pages about the amount of gap Switch and PS4 will have in 2019 ? 1M, 2M, 3M, 4M ? Are you playing "selling numbers" or Videogames ? I do play videogames, and everytime I turn on my PS4, I don't know what to play because there are so many new Great games, I'm not kidding, it can take 10 minutes before being able to choose the Game to play. My Switch is collecting dust, there is nothig to play, and I don't give a fook about Japanes sales figures; I'm from Italy and I do play videogames. What about you? (in general, not referring to you in particular).
For the Gap between the two, it depends on PS4 price cut; the price will be cut to $249 ? $199 ? And when, around E3 Time, or 1st of September ? And what about a price cut for Switch or a new revision ? Do we have a crystal ball ? I do not have one personally, so I prefer to not waste my time giving figures I have no idea, 'cause they depends upon factors we don't know yet. I personally prefer to play Video Games, and now it's time to go back to Sekiro ;)
There is a lot wrong with this post. Right off the bat, it is worth noting that the Switch has offered more to play in less than two years than the PS4 did in two entire years. So the whole, "offering nothing new to play" notion is a joke. I still remember defending the PS4 during the "indie station 4", "PS3.5", and "PS4 has no gamez" days that Sony fans seem to forget about. Most of what it offered was cross gen ports for the longest time, and the first real notable exclusive was Bloodborne ,over two years after the PS4 was released. Meanwhile the Switch has given us several high quality exclusives already, two of which were GotY contenders, and one of which WON GotY 2017.
The Switch is a home console that can be taken on the go. This is why it has home console 3rd party games such as DOOM, Wolfenstein, Dragonball FighterZ, Mortal Kombat, Crash, etc. And of course this is complemented by the fact that it also recieves all of Nintendo's home console titles as well. Many people use it exclusively docked as well, which changes how the console functions as it is more than jist an HDMI out. As for the "Nintendo Gimmik" comment, that does nothing but scream downplay on your part. Unless you are willing to admit that remote play, VR, PS Now and the like are just Sony gimmiks (even more so than the hybrid console concept in fact), which makes the PS4 far more gimmiky than the Switch.
You claim the Switch is a toy for kids, but the main demographic buying and playing it is adults. This has been pointed out time and time again, but I guess that bothers you so you cling to a past stigma about Nintendo like a crutch and refuse to see it for what it is. What you play is up to you, but I play my Switch far more than my PS4, and all of the games I play on it are new. In the past six months I played Starlink, Wolfenstein 2, Dragonball FighterZ, Smash, Ys VIII, Valkeria Chronicles 4, and Yoshi on my Switch alone. On my PS4 I have played RDR2 (most overrated game I have ever played), DMC5, and REmake 2.
I have the same options as anyone else, but my Switch gets more attention while my PS4 collects dust at times. There are plenty of options on both sides, but you seem to ignore that and base things on your personal preferences alone. It only hurts your argument in the end however. Instead of downplaying a successful Nintendo console just to white knight for console that frankly does not need it just to discredit any logic you may or may not have had due to how ridiculous you sound, try acknowledging what both devices have to offer while discussing the pros of both. Personal preference has no place in a sales discussion, as sales are just that...sales. Maybe then your posts may eventually be taken seriously by anyone without the same bias as yourself.
