We have waited a long time for a portable device and we finally got one, Nintendo has made the Switch. This is by far one of the most unique devices we have out in the gaming industry. It can be used as a portable device or as a home gaming system and it uses a remote that can be split for two player mode. This is truly one hybrid device that closes the barrier between a home gaming console and a portable one.
Is this the perfect device? According to the high demand of sales, we can say it definitely is. Since the release date of March 3rd, Nintendo has planned to ship 2-2.5 million (according to WSJ). Now Nintendo plans to produce at least 16 million consoles starting next month. This will reduce the sales of their previous gaming systems that are not hybrid but Nintendo will most likely take their chances and make the Switch their main console.
The demand is clearly very high so we really do hope for more portable devices to come into the market, hopefully a new PSP by Sony or new device by Xbox. Smartphones are not the best gaming devices since they overheat and their batteries are very crucial to most of us.
