A more meaningful separation: handhelds and consoles continue to run in their own categories and the Switch as a cross-gen handheld/console hybrid keeps its own field. PS5 and XBS are clear competitors in one filed and Switch is in its own field after Sony abandoned handhelds.
Switch serves most of the same functionality of these consoles though. Even if it does its own thing as a separate handheld, it still doubles as a home console, competes for much of the same market, and will likely have at least some of the same titles in some form. Whether direct or "indirect" competitor could be a matter of debate, but at the end of the day Switch still competes with Sony and MS in the home console space. It's unique, but to me there's more than enough overlap to warrant it being displayed in the same market, or "field."
