It is about time Nintendo brings us a proper online infrastructure. This will also expose a new generation of gamers to classic Nintendo NES games.
Speaking of NES, the underdog console NES Classic was the best selling console leaving behind PS4, and Xbox One in terms of sales.
But it would be interesting to see where the demand of the machine stands when Switch users get access to Nintendo Switch network that would provide access to NES titles.
In other news, have you heard about the recent hacker discovering VR Settings Menu in Nintendo Switch? It seems like those speculations and rumors of Switch getting a VR headset, might turn out to be true. Still, until the company gives any confirmation we can’t be certain.
So if VR to joins Switch, it definitely suggests that Nintendo is trying hard, to maximize on this console. Perhaps they are trying to surpass or touch Xbox One sales before the next-gen console launches.
What are your thoughts on all of this? Let us know in the comments below.
