Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Could Nintendo keep the Switch going until the launch of the 10th gen consoles?

They should wait until mobile tech reaches the point where a Switch 2 can be to PS5/XS what Switch 1 was to PS4/Xbone power wise, (that is, close enough to get ports) and be sold for $300 at a profit.

That's pretty much what I said as well.

I think a device with 3x the GPU power should be enough. Something they could potentially achieve now but will get cheaper over time. They could do a less powerful GPU but I'd like to see less 360p on Switch.

8GB of RAM would be plenty, the Series S has 10GB but a more demanding OS. Then throw in a more capable CPU and we could have a device capable of running 9th gen games.

Ideally it would be at par with a base PS4. A device that is already handling cross gen games fairly well.

If it launches in 2024 as I think it probably should, it'll be coming 11 years after PS4/Xbone, and so should be more capable, as Switch 1 came 11-12 years after PS3/360 and is more capable.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I find difficult that Ninty delay Switch 2 launch to 2027, but to 2025 is a possibility, BTW that year they could make a special yellow and white launch version and pretend the Pope made the Jubilee for it.
