Switch is a handheld with optional tv-play and belongs to the handheld generations.
Nintendo left the home console market with the switch.
Every heard of the saying "what you say is one thing, what you do is another" ?
Nintendo announced/promised a (pure) home console, advertised a hybrid, delivered a handheld.
It's the inabillity of people to properly differenciate between handheld/HC which lead to this pointless thread.
So...is it an eighth gen or ninth gen handheld? It's definitely a quantum leap above the 3DS and Vita.
