Being different doesn't put you away from the obligation in being up to current times, this being "different" is just a lame justification for its badly design handheld called Switch.

Reggie Fils-Aime "We see that difference as an element that makes us more compelling to the consumer,” Fils-Aime noted."

No native voice chat.
No invites.
No party system.
No matchmaking.

Nintendo have done a great job with the Switch and its unique place as a home/portable gaming system. No one is asking them to emulate the PS4/XBO model. However the online system for Switch owners needs to be improved as it is lacking the most essential features.

Proof you don't have a Switch nor do research.
Matchmaking is coming with the Online Service
Online games on Switch have Friend Invites In-Game.
I do this all the time in Xenoverse 2.

@DJK!NG_Gaming. Honestly appraising the online service is not the same thing as hating.

You attempt to dispute my point about the matchmaking service - then say it is 'coming.'

Instead of pretending everything is perfect why not tweet Nintendo - this could be a powerful message that helps them recognise that there are areas where they can improve the online service so YOUR experience is better.

The console itself is amazing, the online component is a different story. Nintendo needs to change their approach cause right now, they're doing it ass backwards.

The switch design is absolutely phenomenal aesthetically pleasing, durable, comfortable, and innovative

Now if u are only referring to its online ability from the article..then yes, they have some work to do in that department. I believe they are listening and the paid service will provide at least 1/2 of the services competing systems have.

Does 'different' mean you could sell 1999 hardware with a 240p screen for 199$?

Being different as in primitive?? So expect an experience worth 20 bucks a year

Reggie doesn't seem to understand the difference between inexperience and being different.
