    Well... well... What about the port later used for Sega CD?
    Or the one later used for Famicom Disk System?
    Or... Well, there are many other examples.

    LOL.. more guess, again. Oh boy. I don't want to guess until it is release in March. O course, I won't buy it until this fall. Anyway, less guess and more facts is better. :)

    I never had those, but you are correct I am sure there are instances but it sure seems whatever device has expansion ports usually reaches EOL before anything is implemented.

    Could also be the grommets that you run your hoses through for your external radiator. :)

    Oh, it comes with an enclosed cheese grater. Cool!

    PS: I kind of got hungry for pasta.

    It's actually a shell launching port.

    maybe they are there (for cooling like a few of you said) because it will overheat easily... so they give a big vent to keep it cool enough

    You can also drill a hole in it.

    More seriously for the ricers/gary boys/whatever your local pejorative is in the audience exhaust is part of the typically four stroke cycle (intake, compression, expansion, exhaust, or if you prefer something more memorable suck, squeeze, bang, blow) so bigger may get in the way of that cycle -- my favourite for this was at drag races one day. Guy had a too long exhaust and cut it off to tune the engine, before going too far and welding a bit back on.

    Japan is pretty good at fixing sinkholes, but not good at not making holes in their electronics. Unfunny jokes aside, this is 100% for cooling purposes. The Switch is also a handheld and that much power on such a small case creates high temperatures. Which makes me worry a bit, to be honest.

    I am kidding, holes for cooling...

    Oh, that South Park game... When the fuck does it release? I feel my pre-order is collecting a ton of dust.

    When the South Park studio decides to make an episode without offensive gestures, words or dildos...

    It's similar to a heat pump/refrigeration cycle.

    I mean for any console, my preorder is not on the Switch anyways (ofc). And I love my offensive gestures, words an dildos, so leave them where they are please.
    PS: Release date still unknown, ugh. I miss those time when it was still supposed to release on December'16.
