Exactly what I was saying, thanks. Poach, is the operative word. There aren't many people switching over to Nintendo and skipping one of the other two.
I forgot to mention, though I suppose it's clear to most people, that one of the main reasons "Switch only" is an unpopular choice is because of the 3rd party situation. Although some hardcore Nintendo fanatics might be happy with JUST playing Nintendo exclusives, if all you own is a Switch, you're very limited in terms of your ability to play all the multiplatform titles that come out (which of course are the bulk of what most people play). You're stuck with a restricted library of third party games and inferior ports.
It really doesn't make much sense to own only a Switch console, unless you're really in love with Nintendo exclusives and have little interest in third-party games and no interest in Sony or MS exclusives. I don't think there are a lot of hardcore gamers like that. There are probably some hardcore Nintendo guys like that, but those wouldn't be "poaches," since they are already committed to Nintendo no matter what.
Ok, I feel like I've analyzed this enough.
