If Nintendo have a Pro in the works, they wait until next gen resolve their shortages and then release.

There is no point releasing now when they are flying high.

Are we seriously going to compare a much cheaper,last gen system with current gen consoles?
Video game system vs other video game systems? I fail to see the problem.

I can also predict all your counter arguments here because seriously, this dead horse has been beaten to death again a couple times by now.

Switch existing and selling well doesn’t mean everyone’s precious AAA devs are suddenly going to cater to the lowest denominator and stop going for the best specs they can squeeze out of cutting-edge hardware.

It is handheld vs home consoles, or home+handheld +handheld (lite) vs home consoles.

Aka different audience

Real comparision should be switch models vs wii+3ds combined sales

Big PS fan here.
I have no problem with this, even though Nintendo is on my complete boycott list with Apple.

Very much interested in a Pro model. Sold my Switch a couple of years ago, and haven’t felt tempted to rebuy, but a more powerful version with potential 4K and higher fidelity would be very nice to have as a mobile gaming platform, alongside my Ps5.

The Switch sales being compared to PS4/X1 or PS5/XSX is like apples & oranges. The Switch has it's own unique part of the market and is successful, which is great all round for gamers and Nintendo.
