I don't understand how Pachter continues to be employed after all these years. Does he (more successfully) do analysis for other sectors?

Literally only thing holding me back is the Handheld mode.
Drop that, make a TV only Version and I'm in baby!

It's clearly a missed opportunity by Nintendo.
I know I'm not the majority by far, but I would say there is a good percentage of people who would jump the gun and buy a Switch for the TV only with no handheld mode, so it's kinda a knowingly missed sale.
If Nintendo made a beefed up home console only model they could possible get two purchases from me: that and a Lite for the best of both worlds.

From what I read In think he means "not smart" in the way they have pretty much backed themselves into a hybrid device which, for the most part, means stifling both handheld as well as straight console. You can see this in more ambitious titles that struggle on both ends. Nintendo fans must also not be complacent with poor running ports just for the sake of "xxxx game on a handheld" and must hold the devs to higher standards.

Just the thread to being up an old Mama Robotnik gif:

Jesus, that gif in current year is some second hand embarrassment, not surprised since it belongs to old neogaf, and made by an 80s boomer sonic fan :/
