Jas and Muss have it right, for me. Devs will describe the Switch in whatever fashion makes the most sense from a marketing perspective: "best handheld FIFA ever" is more positive and will result in more sales than "weakest home console version of FIFA 18". You talk up your product, what what.

Hmm, I think it is, or should be, a little more positive than it might have been for the Wii and Wii U. That's entirely because of the handheld angle. Whereas the Wii and Wii U were 'just' underpowered consoles (that did or tried to do new and interesting things in a stagnant market that can only innovate by stealing from sci-fi and cocking it up, but hey), you now also have the most powerful handheld ever. There is a new way for even the most creativity-stricken dev to look at this console.

I think the message is different, because it can be, because Nintendo has given it a way to be.

Certainly also lines up with what the likes of Reggie and Layden, have said about PS4 and Switch coinciding due to having what will be very different libraries.

We had some chat about the 3DS in a Switch thread about Picross thanks to Andy and that all went to the wayside.

I would like to bring up some things since this thread was last used and that's the sales of Chicken Wiggle or whatever it's called, Metroid and Monster Hunter dropping out of the UK charts quicker then England at a international football tournament (Japan as well in the case of Metroid, not seen the NPD from USA yet) and how we maybe using our Switches as from listening to podcasts etc seems handheld mode is used a lot on the Switch.

You could also take upcoming 3DS games into account which includes remasters, enhanced 3rd versions for instance.
