"It's 2017" is an excuse. The vast majority don't use ethernet nowadays.

I don't know what "it's 2017" means. More and more devices are just wireless now. It was stranger in 2006 when the Wii didn't have one.

None of Nintendo's consoles come with Ethernet ports. You can buy a dongle if you're feeling upset

I shouldn't have to fucking buy a adapter for hardline ethernet when it's almost a standard in most electronics now outside of mobile devices. If this was only a hand held I wouldn't have issue because wifi makes sense for mobile only devices but this device is both.

I spending more money for something that is in nvidia's new shield, PS4, XBOX.

So get an adapter. There's nothing wrong with wishing one was built in, but it's not strange that it isn't.

Noone is arguing otherwise. But wifi is more prevalent and Nintendo prefers wireless connections. The anger would be acceptable 10 years ago, but this is not a crazy issue where the outrage is necessary. It's simple math here. Things get dropped in favor of other stuff. If you want a wired connection you still have that option.

...then pay the extra $20 or so for an adapter if it's so important. I like that you mention the Steam Link having one as some kind of "got ya!" argument when that device's entire purpose is to provide a live HD stream of 1080p/60fps gaming

no gigabit ethernet in 2017 for heavens sake!

Not the end of the world but I have had issues with AC Wifi as well, I've moved almost everything of mine to gigabit ethernet and have never looked back.

I can understand the complaints though, even with an option you are still losing a USB port b/c of it. How many USB ports are on the dock, 2? If there was like 4 or 6 USB ports probably wouldn't be a big deal, but 2 ports is limiting.

Pretty much every internet connected multimedia device related to home entertainment (Smart TVs/Blu ray players/game systems/consoles) have an Ethernet port in them.

The ones that don't are usually due to size restrictions (phones/tablets) but their docks often do (See: Surface Pro)

It's not a huge crime to omit it but "it's 2017 no one uses Ethernet" is just an excuse for leaving something out that truthfully would cost them cents to throw in. There are all different types of home arrangements and in many situations the wifi connectivity may be poor or significantly compromised compared to a hardwired solution, especially when you are dealing with high performance connections like 100MBPS+ (if you don't have 5ghz wifi support, then you quite possibly get far less than that which is where cat5 saves the day)

So no it's not a deal breaker but it's also not really nothing either. It's just a bit baffling.

The Shield tablet doesn't have an Ethernet port. It uses an adapter.



Unless you're expecting an Ethernet port on the device itself, it has to be routed through the USB-C port just like the video signal. So I guess you want the adapter to be built into the dock, possibly making it more expensive for everybody who's not using that functionality?

Thanks banana the dog pile was fucking ridiculous in here. I agree is it was just the tablet I would understand wifi only, but to not include something so mainstream in 2017 is legit got me upset because i have to pay an extra 20 bucks for something that other companies include as a standard.

But the apps that those devices use don't require 10s of GBs of space and completely lag-free internet. It's a legit complaint. Personally, I don't see it being that big of a deal, but I don't see how it would hurt the console if the dock had a port. It IS 2017. Being a home console and NOT having an ethernet port is more baffling than it being included.

Interesting that Zelda is the only design they have. Almost gives me some hope the game might launch alongside the console. Though I would also expect something Splatoon, maybe that isn't a launch game then. New Mario renders probably are completely not allowed at this point, even if that's also a big launch rumor.
