The original post I've quoted stayed that a new Switch with basically a more powerful hardware and pretty much new features but overall the same hardware would be nice but since it's Nintendo, it wouldn't happen. So I decided to show how that exactly what Nintendo is actually doing it for years, releasing pretty much the same console with more power and new features. The Wii added motion control to the Gamecube with more power and the Wii U added HD support and the gamepad. The DS added a second screen to the Game Boy Advance and the 3DS added 3D support, with obviously more power every time.

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.
