    I just can't wait for my games to reach Comcast's bandwidth cap after 65 hours (is what the estimate for 4K 60 FPS) with a 1 TB cap. Halleh-frickin-lujah.

    They want you to rebuy the game again obviously, not use your old games that you have lying around, that would be silly right

    lol, the switch struggles with current gen titles. Imagine when scarlet and ps5 launch, no way they will able to get the games running on a switch unless they do a severe abortion to their games.

    If nintendo doesnt launch a powerful enough switch revision or a brand new device, say good bye to third parties. The leap on power will be significantly inmense starting next year.

    Aren't they both partnered with AMD? PS5 and Scarlett might be basically the same machine.

    Nintendo has the portable market all to themselves, and they've never been concerned about having less powerful hardware than the competition in the past. I don't see that changing now. Even a 'Switch Pro' will only manage to be as powerful as a PS4 at best, but that would be more than sufficient for porting next-gen titles anyway.

    I think you're underestimating the fact that Switch is a portable console (the only one left on the market other than mobile phones) and it's selling like hot cakes. It's not only about raw power.

    I've considered the possibility that I may be out on next gen all together, except for the Switch I already have. I already have a backlog that could last me a life time.

    That's exactly what i was saying. A switch capable of performing similar to a ps4 would be enough to exists with both scarlet and ps5. The diference now is that current switch strugles a lot with a lot of third party titles, but at least it can hold up itself since the difference of power isnt that gigantic (same thing with their past consoles). But no matter if they have the portable market, if the switch wont be able to hold itself up with the ps5 or scarlet games, then there is no way you will be seeing third party support, unless third parties develop exclusive games for the switch, but again, nintendo will start missing a lot of the third parties games, and it isnt like third parties are actually developing exclusive titles for the switch... besides a really small minority (which ended up becoming available elsewhere anyway)

    I would really prefer the Switch Pro to be more compact and portable rather than powerful.

    It would be OK for me if they even went back to the caveman era and pulled some GBA-SP clappable thing instead, compact and without detachable joycons. You could still "dock" it and use external wireless controllers if you liked.

    Erm, wait, I need to wake up.

    PS: Actually I think I am describing an Nvidia Shield again...

    Read my response above. Power will matter if the thing cant run the games. That's why it is selling besides the portable thing, because it at least can run some current gen titles...

    Well the persistent rumor is that there will be two revisions, 'Switch Pro' and 'Switch Mini,' so the latter sounds right up your alley.
