Ever? A small form factor isn't something Nintendo just came up with, it's always been the future of gaming. Lots of people have tried to find success in this area, including Nintendo, but the technology wasn't there. The Switch itself is a transitional device.
The real question is, will the dedicated gaming companies like Nintendo be able to compete when people are able to wirelessly connect their phones to TVs and Controllers and play CoD or FIFA?
Edit: Also, that's some amusing revisionism in the OP.Last edited by pokoko - on 22 January 2019
