Is it running current 8th gen games?
Is it using 8th gen technology?
Is it competing against 8th gen consoles exclusively?
Sounds like an 8th gen duck to me.
It really depends if you think that Nintendo is still part of the greater gaming industry or if they're doing their own thing apart from everyone else. You cannot have it both ways so you choose.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
