Nintendo Switch, for those who still do not know… It’s the latest gaming console developed by Nintendo to precede the Nintendo Wii U. Released in March 2017.
Nintendo Switch is a hybrid gaming console where it delivers home console gaming experience similar to PlayStation 4, and a portable gaming alternative like the Nintendo 3DS. Want to play at home? Simply dock the 6.2-inch touchscreen display tablet and enjoy HD gaming on TV. Heading out? Just undock the tablet, and it became a handheld gaming device. It comes with 2 different color sets, Neon-Blue/Red and All-Gray colors.
What’s so special about it? It uses a custom Nvidia Tegra chip and comes with a 32GB internal memory that can be expanded to 2TB using microSD card. The controllers called ‘Joy Con’, which is detachable from the tablet for two-player multiplayer or controller for a solo player. Each Joy Con contains an accelerometer and gyroscope for motion gesture. It also contains a haptic feedback system known as HD Rumble that can provide fine tactile feedback to users.
