I'm not remotely arguing that Nintendo needs third party. I'm arguing that Nintendo looks likely to make a Pro model for the Switch whether it needs it or not, that as the 9th gen goes on that eventually the meager offerings Nintendo gets from 3rd parties will only be ported to the Pro model, and that all of this is fine and you all need to adjust to the reality that will be the Switch Pro because if you really don't care at all about it I doubt it will affect you that much beyond a few games Nintendo makes to take advantage of it and to support it. Stop shoving your narrative onto me, I'm not a "Nintendo needs AAA 3rd party support" guy, I'm just guessing what I think might happen. I'm not trying to pretend I make Nintendo's business decisions for them, or that I begin to understand their logic (I don't most of the time), but I think they're making a Switch Pro and I'm going to buy it if they do, and probably the 3rd parties, whether Nintendo "needs them" or not, are going to make Switch Pro exclusive ports. If I'm wrong and there's no Switch Pro, I'd still bet on the Switch passing Wii. I've never thought otherwise, even when the hybrid console was just a rumor.
But that's based on nothing. This year's rumor started with Digitimes claiming that a new Switch model is in the works, but they didn't say anything about its specifications. The latest tidbit of the rumor mill is that the new Switch model will neither have 4k support nor a significant performance upgrade, despite this new rumor talking about Nintendo and Nvidia having developed a new/updated GPU. What this points towards is not a Pro, but yet another improvement in battery life due to a more energy-efficient architecture.
2020 is shaping up to be a repeat of 2019 where the rumors pointed away from a Pro, but the internet kept expecting a Pro against all reason.
