Ok...so I'm sure this has been done before, but it seems this concept is derailing a few threads.
The Nintendo Switch succeeded the under-performing WiiU in 2017. It is a hybrid system (the first of its kind), and has the power of something between a WiiU and a PS4, arguably much closer to the PS4 than the WiiU.
So where do we consider the Switch when it comes to generations? Do we measure it against the PS4 and XBoxOne (Gen 8), or does it have a very early lead out the gate as the first Next Generation (Gen 9) system?
Or is it possible that it has to fit in its own category considering that it is a new way to play games, straddling the line between handheld and home console. In that case, when will we see a proper competitor to the system?
There's plenty to debate here, and plenty more is already being debated in other threads. I just wanted to create a poll, so we get an extra thread to boot.
