Why would I bother with one when I can just play my Switch?



Around the Network

Unless its a portable only Switch, Nintendo would be stupid to make another handheld. And I fail to see the appeal of one. Granted, Id like a Switch revision that comes with smaller bezels... a smaller form factor (though the latter might be difficult with the controllers)



After seeing that Nintendo can do Hybrid consoles. Im not sure if I can go back to a ONLY Home console or Handheld device. It allows you to save money.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I'd like something more portable than the switch, yes.



This leads me to think about what the next Nintendo console will be like after Switch. People are already used to the concept of hybrid, will people be willing to return to the duo home console and portable? I would think not. Nintendo spoiled them and showed them the pleasure of having a hybrid console. The other question would be: will the hybrid console concept be sustainable in the future? or in other words, how much difference will there be with Sony and Microsoft consoles? If the difference is even greater than it is now, would that be a problem? I would say yes.

Nintendo seems to be at their best when they only have one console to focus on. Plus, then it satisfies handheld gamers and console gamers. I say Nintendo should only be hybrid from now on.

As much as I think a dedicated handheld would be cool to see, Nintendo should focus on hybrid consoles for now one. They can give them the best of both home console and portable types of games.



Yeah. A switch mini. Which will be here within the next couple of years anyway. No point dividing development resources or install base.



Yes, I think the switch it too big and clunky for a handheld, not to mention the short battery life. They definitely need a handheld only system compatible with switch games but also having smaller games made specifically for it. I specially feel this way for younger gamers 6-12 year olds who are likely to drop the switch, lose accessories, all day playing on and off without having to charge it, simpler more kid friendly games etc...

Well. The Switch is using a successor to the hardware in the Ouya.
So it's not entirely impossible.
