Welcome to Gaming After Hours: A freelancing website where future journalist express themselves and get noticed.
New reports are coming in about the Nintendo Switch and its initial lack of multimedia functionality such as the popular Netflix.
According to Business Insider (via NeoGAF) that the console / portable hybrid system “won’t have many multimedia functions at launch.” This information was sourced to a quote from Nintendo’s Kit Ellis. “Don’t plan to watch Netflix on the Switch, for instance… The Switch isn’t going to replace your iPad — it’s a dedicated gaming machine to the point where it won’t have many multimedia functions at launch,” Business Insider said.
At the time of this writing, Nintendo has made no mention when and if the Switch will come with other multimedia services such as Hulu, Crunchyroll, and YouTube. Though it’s hard to image any system without these media applications.
The Switch launches on March 3, priced at $300.
