Sure, but it's just trivia then. Supposedly "the internet is on fire" over this happening, but if you were following the Famitsu Sales for boxed products all year, you'd know it was pure domination of the Switch for a good long while now. It's a popular platform, and it does particularly well in Japan. So that's nothing new, with or without this black mark on Sony's record (...in the middle of a dead summer, on a chart dominated by old Minecraft and Zelda HD and Mario Kart 8 sales.)It was because that was the first time ever that Switch got the full top 30. It wasn't really to do with the software numbers sold in that particular week.
I'm more concerned that Neo World Ends With You looks to be topping out at 30k copies (22+k on Switch, less than 10k on PS4), or how Scarlet Nexus fell off already and taped out at 40K, or If Tales of Arise doesn't chart a few weeks from now (will be interesting to see if/where PSO:New Genesis appears next week,) as those things can affect me as a gamer for the titles I'd be interested in, on any platform. As is, I see the new chart and go, "Hey, nice feather for Nintendo's cap, I love my Switch so great to see Japan loves theirs too, no good news for Sony again, heh that Shin-Chan is still going, but otherwise nothing much came out recently, so not much new to learn here... oh, what's this, the internet is on fire?!"
