    The Switch is an underpowered console which makes up with its portability. You might be asking for too much.

    Considering even PS4 and Xbone games have trouble with many multiplayer games maintaining 60 fps with more than 2 players (And some with just 2 players even), I wouldn't expect Nintendo to somehow be able to maintain 60fps for most multiplayer games with more than 2 players.

    Typically it takes years for companies to master a new platform. In the case of Nintendo consoles, that company is usually Nintendo.

    Even an O3DS will play multiplayer Smash at 60fps, so I don't think it's out of the question.

    Most of the first party titles have been 1080p@60fps (Minus Zelda)

    No, it has the two sides of the screen updating at alternating intervals of 30fps.

    but it looks like 60 fps? Because I know 2 player split screen mk8 sure as hell isn't 30 fps (visually)

    Yet the games still run amazingly on the Switch (Minus a select few which are bad ports)

    I'm not doubting it has its perks. But since it's release there's been nothing but complaints. Faulty components, poor damage causing design, framerates, lack of third party support, etc. I think once the wow factor fades and people get bored with the same franchising software, they're gunna look back and ask themselves "why'd I buy this piece of shit?"

    It will likely depending on the game, something like puyo puyo tetris is allot simpler graphically compared to Mario Kart.

    I haven't seen any complaints about faulty components recently, Also the system literally came out 3 monthes ago why are people complaining about third party support...
    Most systems don't have games coming out every other week

    Most third party companies pulled out before the release of the switch due to it being highly underpowered by today's standards. The joycon and screen scratching dock are still going on.

    MK8D renders at 60fps when it's 2-player for both sides. It's 3 and 4-player that it becomes 30fps per window (2 windows are rendered per frame, with only HUD elements rendering each frame regardless of window).

    Fast RMX renders at 60fps regardless of how many players there are, as it uses dynamic resolution to scale down when it's dealing with more than it can handle.

    I would have to quote every statement for each company that halted particular ports like ea, stardock, etc. You can just as easily Google games that won't be released.

    Whoops, that was my mistake, that only happens with 3-4 players. With 2 players, it runs at 60fps for both.
