Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch is the GameCube done right

It's more like a 3DS successor and a sort of Wii U done right.

Gc was a powerful home console. Switch is a handheld that can be played as a weak home console.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

You're starting with the assumption that the Switch is basically the same as the Gamecube, then you argue your statement by saying how the Switch actually differs from it,

Am I missing something?

I'm arguing about how the Switch gets things right, where the GameCube failed when it tried something similar.

But the GameCube didn't try something similar.

Back Last January, Nintendo said they thought about a portable home console with the GameCube since they put a handle on it, so it can easily be carried. So while not exactly the same, it shows that Nintendo at least had the concept in mind even back then.

Uh, Switch is far more Wii U done right done than GameCube, it basically corrected all Wii U mistakes Nintendo made with Wii U.

^This.

And the Switch doesn't have a handle... so one additional difference that can be added to the million other differences between a GameCube and a Switch.



The Switch is a DS and Wii successor done right.



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

The Switch is a 3DS successor with an HDMI-out port.

Exactly.  

It almost feels like the Wii U was the prototype and the Switch was perfected.



Ok? I mean if anything it's the Wii U done right, since it's literally the gimmick Wii U was going for as a fully realized concept.
