Personally, I love my Switch
I'll never sell it unless I really need a new console:P
But I think it would have been better if it had an external gpu on the dock
Like when in portable mode, you get low/medium graphics quality, and when docked, you get high/ultra quality
don't you think
I personally think it would have stolen a big part of ps4/xbo market share

if the switch becomes successful I'm sure Switch 2.0 will have that feature.

and even few new tricks up its sleeves.

but it all comes to games.

it all depends on how successful it becomes. every device success which Nintendo had a 2.0

like the Gameboy, GBA, NDS, Wii, 3DS all had new versions with that something a little different

I'd be interested, but I think it's a bad move for Nintendo. Switch with a secondary stationary unit is basically WiiU. Worse, it won't even function without Switch plugged into it, and the GPU itself would be a minimum of $200.

With Switch 2 I think there will be a greater gap between portable and docked performance, but I don't think they're gonna go with a full fat GPU on what's supposed to be a hybrid system.

What's to stop Nintendo releasing a "dock plus" with this feature? :)

Could also mean that you could have a Wii U like experience with the switch and TV having a separate image as well, or a "boosted" docked mode. :)

Yeah first one that springs to mind is the new Minecraft for starters. There's not many but there are a handful of N3DS ONLY games.

ps1 = psx right?
or maybe its a specific version of the ps1?

Yes but let's me explain: PSX was larger PlayStation device that came out in 1995-6. Later on in the console's life cycle, they released what they call the PSOne, which is basically the same thing, yet it's smaller, came with a DualShock controller.

This is PSOne (PS1). See ? :) Really, this is basically the same thing as PSX but it's smaller. :)

    My state has put a heavy tax on vape juice, taxing any juice with nicotine by the weight/oz. So to get around the bs, my local vape store only sells 0 nicotine vape juices, then they also sell straight nicotine in tiny bottles, and you mix it yourself to your 0% juice, lol
