And certain people on here were adament that the Eurogamer rumors were untrue when the Morpheus X300 was revealed. They assumed that because that technology had already existed that no way would Nintendo copy it. Certain people were also adament that the NX/Switch would not be a hybrid either.
I don't know why Nintendo decided to wait so long to unveil the Switch as the rumors pretty much revealed it all for us months in advance. In fact, the "hybrid" rumor came out well over a year ago and it's not like the reveal video was anything elaborate.
