But the Wii and Wii U were also underpowered, so I don't really understand why that's now stopping you from getting a Switch.
I used to have a Game Cube and a Wii. Perhaps I should have purchased a Wii U if I had known that it would be their last home system ever... Still hoping it's not their last home system, while they are clearly moving towards this hybrid philosophy, nobody, not even Nintendo can tell for sure what they will do 5 or 10 years from now.
Because in relation to what video games were back in those days and what they are today, they were not as underpowered as the Switch is.
Also people change, my demands now are not what they were 10 years ago. 10 years ago gaming happened on TV's whose definition ranged from low def (480i) to high def (1080p) and my Wii while on the low end was still outputting within that range. Today the norm is between 1080p and 4K and a game like Zelda is NOT in that norm, it outputs at 900p if I remember correctly with a lot of aliasing.
I totally get that the Switch is doing great considering it's mostly a portable system but like I said previously I don't have to suffer the limitations of a portable system when a dedicated home system could have done the job and like I said people change, 10 years ago I was not thinking in terms of dedicated home systems, now I am.
