Software Bug In Nintendo Switch Causes GPU Resources To Be Drained

There's also the possibility that Splatoon 2 could release in the next few months, which would give Nintendo another intriguing Switch exclusive. But does the hardware live up to the hype?
"As a company, as a philosophy, we would rather have consumers use our first-party solutions". What features would you like to see on the Activity Log? Gone are the days of having to choose between a handheld console and a home console, or having to be tethered to your home to play quality video games. The dock itself is a simple device that doesn't have anything special with it. However, even with the ingenuity and impressiveness of the Switch, it has one very fatal flaw, it has seriously low number of games titles. This can easily limit the portability of the device, especially if Nintendo would capitalize on the popularity of Legend of Zelda to advertise the device. To highlight its all-inclusiveness, the Switch is aimed at a more varied and more family-friendly audience as showcased by its robustness (made in Nintendo) and the games it offers.
We and most everyone feared the console would end up being a hot community that Nintendo would be unable to meet the initial demands. When you play in portable mode, the Joy-Cons attach to both sides of the screen. However, when you're holding a single Joy-Con in your hand and are trying to play with it, there's no denying that it's awkward and not ideal. Anyone playing multiplayer games with more than two people will want another pair of Joy-Cons.
On top of that, "the faster GPU featured in the Switch allows the team to implement a more robust atmospheric light scattering system", which means there's a true improvement in comparison with the older gen console, instead of early reports claiming the hardwares were basically the same. And many of them are starting to get concerned. Unless you're Karen and you plan to take your Switch with you to parties, the uncomfortableness of a single Joy-Con isn't a dealbreaker.
With all that said and done, should you get a Nintendo Switch? Citing "some digging" through unnamed sources, the site says it "heard. the cost of manufacturing a Nintendo Switch game is higher than the cost of making a PS4, PC or Xbox One game, because the cartridges the Switch uses cost more to make than Blu-ray discs". First of all, the hack will only enable anyone to access features of the Nintendo Switch not normally available to a common user. The Switch will be everywhere, and the gorgeous colors of Breath of the Wild will be on display everywhere for everyone to see. Whether we see one now, or see one in the future, I think enough people care about the Switch to make it too tempting for skilled hackers to pass up.
