Nintendo Switch (Console Review)

Welcome to he Wii U Mk. 2, also known as the Nintendo Switch. Taking many of the assets, ideas and aspects of its predecessor, while trying very hard to learn from what led its older design to fail, the Switch aims to offer three things from the start: Accessibility, portability and convenience. While such praise might sound back-handed, almost insulting, it doesn't take long to realise that the Switch has captured qualities other consoles have long forgotten.

  1. I like the thought of consoles offering what PC's can't, and honestly that's the main reason I bought and am satisfied with the PS Vita. For all the complaints about the system's exclusives (or lack of them) I like that I can play it on the go, as I don't have quite as much time as I used to for sitting in front of a console.

    That being said, when I'm up and about I usually stay that way for a while which is why I'm wary of the Switch's short battery life and also it's surprisingly small starting memory. Considering too that this is Nintendo, and that Sony and Microsoft have both made versions of their current console that are better, I think that when I do get enough to get a Switch (it'll be a long while) that I might wait for a while anyway to see if they release a better version.
