Maybe, just maybe I want to use the console in handheld mode too? I mean, I'm paying good money for an underpowered console because it has that feature, so maybe I don't want to use it to play on my TV only, with a controller for an extra 70 bucks.
You don't need to explain to me why the joycons are designed this way, I get that this was the only way to make the whole hybrid concept work. But to me they didn't do a "fantastic job", it's more of an okay compromise. The joycons are inferior to the Wii Motes for multiplayer, in handheld mode the Switch is crampier than the 3DS and for a good home console experience you need to pay extra...
Then the system would not be for you?Dont get me wrong, you can complain, its everyones right, but its not like Nintendo can make a system that everyone will agree with 100% of the decisions made.There will always be people that will love the joycon design, and people like you that wont be a fan of it.As far as we can see, they made the best decision possible for the idea that they had, and it is inevitable that someone would not be pleased along the way.And for those, Nintendo gave an option of a better alternative.What else that you want?Nintendo cant make a system based on the desires of one person alone.
The point I am making is that Nintendo, as any other company, looks at the bigger picture and tries to please them, not the minority.And even being on the expensive side, Nintendo gave an alternative for these minority(you and me).What else do you expect out of a company?
