Great work.


I have nothing else to say other than I'll be rereading this to better juggle my own thoughts on the Nintendo Switch and a possible Switch Micro.

ThePermNovember 19, 2016

What if Nintendo exchanged a small percentage of licensing profit to get better hardware. Nintendo quite famously ditched Sony when it wanted the Lion's Share of Licensing. However, if Nintendo exchanged some of that, then nvidia gets a cut on all third party games sold. That means nvidia can exchange extra hardware profit for software profit.

Also, if nvidia runs their own exclusive android app store they can make a buck too. That way games end up on Switch that wouldn't normally end up on switch. That could also be how Nintendo prevents emulators from ending up on the switch store. If nvidia runs their own store(like they do with Shield) then they can control the content. I'd imagine most apps would make it through except emulators, or games available on Nintendo's online store.

This is an excellent read with a lot of reasonable explanations with proper citations which I appreciate. I'm going to be rereading this over time to unpack my thoughts about this over time.


I initially wrote that email as a knee jerk reaction to seeing the Switch video and running with possibilities. I wasn't considering battery life among many other things when I wrote it. I think right when RFN was going over it I immediately thought up some kind of mock up of a portable Switch. I think Johnny called it a Switch Micro and I can sort of see it conceptually, but I'm not an engineer so I can't explain how it would work.


In time when Nintendo reveals more details we will be able to see more of what the Switch will have to offer and I think hopefully by then we can have a better objective view about the system.
