Good point, not to mention the fact that you could play some really awesome Nintendo classics on the fly as well.

The 3DS offers the same and in terms of portability, it's better.

* Exclusives games
* Portability
* Pro Controller = Best controller ever.
* Still early on, and the best is yet to come.
* ^ related, but....all the possibilities of games that could potentially still release on Switch over the next 5+ years.
* It's got enough for everyone, and already has better 3rd party support than Wii U.
* ^ related.....It is getting the 3rd party support the 3DS had, which was and still is good.
* So much less Nintendo hate now, and we can finally stop hearing how it should be like the PS4, and get back to just enjoying it for what it is.

point one and two are spot on. But the rest...
Pro controler: opinion.
It already put out Zelda and Mario. Nintendo doesnt have nothing better or so big. For me pokemon isnt in the same league.
The next one i dont understand.

It doesnt have better 3 rd party support. In the first year the Wii u even got a COD game. This year, the lack of monster hunter world, the biggest game until now, is a clear example.

Nintendo hate? that new for me. Its the only company that can get away with so much stuff without being killed by the press.
Example, the status of MP games on the Switch after a year. The delays of gaming online for me are just crazy in 2018.

I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbor told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do>> http://www.NetNote3.com

lol nothing and still damn expensive of what it actually offers :D

I would pay 600 for it. The games are that good, why don't you enjoy your system and let others enjoy theirs. Video games are about having fun, but leave it to some fans to try and ruin that. Says a lot about you.

I like my switch, but $300 Is a more realistic price. I can't imagine it would have had nearly the same impact at $600.
Zelda and to some extent Mario were amazing games, but for my tastes there just isn't much to look forward to. I'm hoping metroid will look good when they eventually show more than a splash screen.

Dude, you need to chill with the Nintendo hate. Its not like anybody really cares what you think. Your just hurting yourself in the long run.

TheEnigma313167d ago

Because you can play how you want. Nintendo has found their own space where they can dominate.

Got a Switch for Christmas with Mario Odyssey, Kart, Zelda and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and I'm loving it but it's missing an excellent online co op game. Gutted a Monster Hunter of any kind is nowhere to be seen (in Europe anyway) yet or anything similar, hopefully when online launches in September the floodgates will open.
