Top 5 reasons why the Nintendo Switch could flop

Gaming Hardware
Nintendo is banking on its next console to be a hit, but that could be a problem. Here are the top five reasons why the Nintendo Switch could be a dud. At number five, it's too late. Sony and Microsoft have carved out the home console market for themselves, with Sony at the number one spot. The PlayStation Pro should be setting a new benchmark for home consoles When it comes out in November. Then this Microsoft reved up Project Scorpio version of the XBox One coming out in late 2017. Both of those consoles could out class the Nintendo Switch. At number, portables are dying. So the Switch is both a home console and a handheld. Yeah, here's the thing about portable gaming. That space is being eaten up by phones and tablets. Plus if you shell out money for either a phone or a tablet, those devices can do more than gaming. And number three, same old stuff. It's me, Mario. But how many times do you pretend to be a mushroom eating plumber? Make no mistake about it, Nintendo makes some fun games. But at this point, nostalgia alone can't carry a console. At number two, where's the touchscreen? Nintendo's Switch video showed a lot of things being done with the console except For one thing, no one touched the tablet screen. The Nintendo 3DS uses a touchscreen, the Wii U uses a touchscreen, games built for phones and tablets often use touchscreens. When asked if the Switch would feature a touchscreen, Nintendo said We have nothing to announce on this topic. At number one, battery life. This could be a big deal for the Nintendo Switch. When it is a portable device with two wireless controllers, you're looking at three separate devices that need to have power at any given time. If any of those three are dead. That takes away from how good the switch could be. This can be a very real problem, but we won't find out until March. So checkout top5.cnet.com to see the top five why the switch could be a success. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online. [MUSIC]
