My point to Nathan wasn't about portability, but about power and the fact that he dismissed the Switch for the PS4 - while talking about Japan sales.
But I guess you're right, it's portable while all the other don't.
It doesn't strictly need to be portable, but that certainly helps on the Japanese market these days.
About the argument of power, did y'all ever thought about those first party Nintendo games running on a more powerful console can make better experience? Just like Xenoblade chronicles 2, it would be an excellent RPG if I can play it on just standard 1080p instead of 720p at top even when docked, u know what? even 4K is already almost half mainstream now, how can u put up with a game running at 720p/unstable 30FPS on a 300 bucks console? not even to mention the u know how ugly it is on handheld mode. For a lot of third party games, I don't usually bother complaining that, but are y'all just satisfied? didn't ever want anything better? For me, it should've been better if not those compromises. All above I said is just part of fact and part of my personal complaint, I DO NOT downplay anything about switch, it is because I like the system, I hope it can do better as simply a gamer. And Bofferbrauder, if you think I should go with PC if I don't like compromise, then I'll tell you, PC don't give me GOW, HZD then I bought PS4 pro, PC don't give me RDR2 in 4K then I bought one X, if I wanna play games at ultra setting, PC turned on, u want no compromise? just one is never OK, that's why I hope every one can do their best.
