I have seen the discussions since we have known about the switch i called it a tablet in 2013 and in that implementation tossed it in generation 8. But in its current form it is the best of both worlds. So to just end both debates let it be known its a Pocketconsole/handheldonsole of the first generation
The performance difference between Switch and PS4/XBO is similar to the performance difference between Vita and PS3/360 and similar to the performance difference between PSP and PS2. Both PSP and Vita allowed downgraded home console games with similar gameplay.
So why is the Switch the first Pocketconsole?
