That's not what Nintendo claims: http://www.polygon.com/2016/10/20/13347910/nintendo-switch-home-gaming-system
That's utterly retarded, they just don't want people to not buy 3DSs this Christmas for Pokemon.
It plays 5 year old PS3 games when used as a home console. That is a joke not a Wii U successor. As a mobile device is the only place it has a reason to exist.
Then don't buy one. But your opinion of it being a joke is pure personal perspective.
So apparently people don't have very high hopes that it'll have remotely comparative specs to the PS4/XB1.
It's not meant to be comparable to the Xbone/PS4. And really, who cares? If games are great, fun and look good why does it matter. It's meant to be the next step in the evolution of Nintendo's gaming offerings. I have a PS3, PS4, 360, Wii, WiiU, PC, NES, SNES, TurboDuo and MadCatz MOJO. That's the short list. Here's the thing, in my home the PS4 is more or less relegated to playing Bluray movies and DVDs. The WiiU gets the lions share of game play time. It has a great library of games that no other system can touch. That's not to say the other systems don't have great titles, because we all know they do.
When my wife and I both watched that first video two days ago, it was the first time since we got married that we BOTH
have been genuinely excited about a game system. PS4 was good. XB1 doesn't have anything to offer over it. WiiU over shadows them both and it is the "weaker" spec'd system. Specs don't make a system.
That having been said, Nvidia's K1 is a damn good performer and the custom version of the X1 is even more excellent. Nintendo and Nvidia know what their doing. The NSX is going to be awesome.
