Meanwhile, several PS Vita games run at native and fixed resolutions of 640x384 and 720x408 or 720x448 at less than 30 FPS, but back then it was the future. Only Nintendo can manage to be archaic while having arguably the most powerful (in terms of actual output) handheld on the market. Switch has a game that the Vita would not even dream of being able to run, that falls down to 360p under load in extreme circumstances, and we are suddenly all freaked out. Utter hypocrisy. I repeat myself, I know, but this is maddening!
This just in: a handheld from 2017 has better performance than a handheld from 2011.
Thank you for making my point for me. Just as it is unrealistic to compare the Vita to the Switch, so should it be to compare current gen consoles with the Switch. My point is precisely that we should not be drawn into ridiculous comparisons. Read my previous posts for further context.
At any rate, for extra points on reading comprehension, you should have realized that I compared, in this instance, attitudes and not systems. I compare the attitude we had when judging the PS Vita back then, with the attitude we have judging the Switch nowadays. Back then, no one even had this expectation to be able to compare the Vita with the PS3. Now we watch comparison videos of the Switch side by side with the One X and we go "look at those blurry graphics lolol!". It is hypocritical through and through.
