Well then no console is anything but an upgraded NES by your metric. And I mean no console not even Sony or Microsoft and NES is just an upgraded whatever came before it. I mean Al they did was add joysticks, add more buttons, made 3d gaming, made be gaming, made two screen gaming and nothing else really.
That's what you sound like
That's what you wanna read, not what I'm saying. The NES and the SNES haven't much in common, neither have the SNES and the N64, or the N64 and the Game Cube. On the other hand, the Genesis was basically a more powerful version of the Master System but had nothing in common with the Saturn nor the Dreamcast.
My point was that is a Nintendo thing to ensure backward compatibility since the Game Boy (for handheld) and the Game Cube (for home consoles).
But they scrapped it with the Switch witch have (obviously) nothing in common with previous consoles.
