At least PS4 specs, PS4 Pro specs if it's possible for the size and battery of a hybrid
Needs at least 500GB of internal storage. 32GB is beyond pathetic
Launch with YouTube, Hulu, Twitch, Netflix, Disney+, and an Internet Browser
Return of the Virtual Console
Achievements, Proper Voice Chat and Networking Features
Free games each month like PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold
Backwards compatibility with the Switch, duh.
Double kickstand, felt in the dock to prevent wear and tear
Pretty good list.
Yeah somewhere maybe between PS4 and PS4 Pro specs. I imagine docked it'd be pretty close to PS4 Pro to provide 4k res, and portable more like a base PS4 running on maybe a 900p or 1080p screen. I think the main problem will be how much power that uses. I know there is a big breakthrough in battery technology going on now but I don't know how many years it'll be until it's actually industry ready. New battery tech is supposed to be twice the power density of current lithium batteries. If that became available in the next two years to be included in Switch 2 that could help a lot for both a slightly higher performing system and longer battery life.
I'd love a 500gb storage, though knowing Nintendo I'm just hoping for 256 and expecting 128 haha. 256 would be real nice, as that is already more than I have including my sd card and I still have plenty of storage left with almost 30 games downloaded.
Could care less about apps. Really like why would I run any of these apps on a video game system when I already have a laptop?! I guess some people like to do that but there isn't a real compelling reason for this other than "the other guys do it". Video games systems are to play games on. I'd much rather have Nintendo use their time and money on things to improve the gaming experience than throw a bunch of apps on the system, which would probably mean more RAM dedicated to the OS (like how PS4 and XboxOne has a ton of RAM for the OS compared to the Switch) and therefore less RAM for the actual purpose of the system: gaming!
VC sucks compared to the Switch's subscription service. As long as they roll over the game lineup from the Switch to the Switch 2 and continue adding games, going back to the VC would be a huge step backwards. The only problem with the current retro game service is they are adding systems too slowly, they should totally have GB/GBC and N64 on there by now (and bring back Genesis too hopefully). I wish the service cost like 50% more if that would make them prioritize getting more systems and games on there.
Agreed on achievement, networking, and voice chat. I've never used achievements but everybody seems to love them so I'm sure that'd be a popular addition. And please let Switch 2 finally be the time when Nintendo gets networking and voice chat done right!
Free games is always nice haha, but I don't see Nintendo ever doing that. They don't even drop their years old games from full price. So free games seems unlikely haha. Although when Tetris 99 dropped for free I thought that was the coolest thing so yeah I'd love to have a free game drop every once in a while.
Backwards compatibility is a must, and yeah double kickstand would be good. I don't know how often people use the kickstand, I've only used it a few times, but its a little awkward since it isn't in the center. Either one stronger kickstand in the center of the system or two of the current kickstand would be fine.
