I’ve started to see some rumours about the Nintendo Switch 2. It sounds like it will be a bump in spec and rumours of backwards compatibility are great. But If Nintendo are as user focused as they normally are, I think it might fail. Nintendo often keeps releasing its best games on the previous generation of consoles, so their update consoles (like the WiiU or the 3DS) often are improvements but don’t push users to upgrade. If they stop releasing games or had novel ways of playing with each generations, more people would upgrade, but they don’t. It’s great for consumers, but not great for the corporation.

Maybe I’m wrong (or the rumours are wrong) and maybe the switch 2 will be more unique / have unique games/ etc, but even if it does, I don’t think I’ll be upgrading (especially as I regularly think I should get rid of of my switch as it iss!
