Getting only 3 years before non-Nintendo games turn to shit and you're left with only the handful or less of worthwhile games Nintendo release per year is horrible for the consumer, you're screwing over what will then be over 50 million paying customers.

Leave it up to the dev. Likely speaking what you'll more likely get are games like Resident Evil 2 Remake that simply cannot run on the OG Switch that are Switch Pro-only ... but really you wouldn't have gotten that game on the OG Switch anyway, so what exactly have you lost? Nothing. If anything you've gained something because that game will be there waiting for you, whenever you feel like you want to upgrade. 

Just like today I can buy a new PC GPU and I know there are new games waiting for me to play that my GPU can't run. And that's great, that's power to the consumer, I choose when I want to move up, it's not dictated to me by a company deadline like I'm a 10 year old that needs to beg my parents to buy me my video games. 

My issue isn't games that wouldn't have run on base Switch anyway. My issue is games that could have run okay on base Switch becoming barely playable 20fps chugfests cos devs prioritize the stronger hardware and put the bare minimum of effort into making the base version run.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
