I got to agree with you. I finally just got to test the switch from a friend of mine, I've got fairly big hands and the controllers and buttons felt really small to me, I would easily cramp up play this thing for too long... In general the height of the console isn't high enough for me to hold it comfortably. A switch XL would be perfect for me.
Even if the switch doesn't get a size upgrade, it will most certainly receive a midlife hardware update, which seems to be the (greedy) trend these days, leaving the early adopters in the dust with software and features that only work on the more powerful updated hardware.
Also the Super Famicom Jr / SNES Mini, in that they produced a superior video signal. But SFCjr/SNESmini only half count, since even though a better video signal lurked on its mobo, Nintendo for some reason limited the actual output to composite only. You have to mod the console to get S-video and/or RGB out, but when you do, it's the best.
But generally you're right - except for those examples Nintendo hasn't done a revision on a home console since that wasn't a downgrade. Then again, the Switch isn't a dedicated home console.
An XL, dunno. A revision, probably at least couple of years. Doesn't make sense to confuse consumers so early into the console's lifespan. I swear if it's called a New Switch though.
Also, for people who have a problem with its size would you say you have large palms or long digits because despite the fact I'm rocking somewhat obscene piano hands I've never had comfort issues when playing with any sort of game controller/console?
Apparently, while watching certain youtube channel, someone found that the memory of the Switch is detachable.
Also, that memory is about 32GB in space (I don't own a Switch, so you owners should know better)
A single game is about 14GB in size. So, having multiple digital copies of games in you Switch is not possible in the near future.
My guess is that:
1.- Nintendo will release bigger detachable memories.
2.- Nintendo will release a XL or DELUXE version of the Switch that will have double the memory and size. This with the excuse that: "People really enjoy our games, so we decided to create a bigger console, with bigger screen and bigger memory, so you can enjoy your games with your friends at your home"
3.- I WAS FORST! FURST! FARTS!
Besides, have you seen the "Painful Switch Launch" video?
My guess is that is has something to do with the graphics card, so Nintendo will fix that in future releases of the console.
I'd prefer a "2DS" version of the Switch, like with joycons that you can't remove, better battery, maybe no HD Rumble or whatever... in other words, a version with whatever is useful in the Switch but without whatever is useless (or even annoying!), and for a lower price.
Lol as usual, half the thread wants it bigger, half the thread wants it smaller, and the grass is always greener on the other side. I'd say this means Nintendo probably found the perfect middle ground.
