When we launched the Switch, we were very clear we wanted to position the device as a game-playing device. We’ve done that, and so ugly people having sex’ve seen Hulu for example come on to the platform. In terms of other services, the conversations are on-going.
We’ve got nothing to announce right now. But certainly those opportunities will come in due time. As always, we’ll have to patiently wait for an official announcement on the matter – perhaps Nintendo will surprise-launch the services during a Nintendo Direct one day? Do you think they would add to the console’s appeal? Share your thoughts with us down below.
Ryan’s that annoying kind of guy in multiplayer games – you know the one, the kind of person that throws a temper tantrum if he can’t be Yoshi in Mario Kart or gets stuck with the controller with the dodgy button. I love the Switch as it is. Consoles do far too much now. Though I would like to see themes come to it like the 3DS has. I agree with those saying that part of the success game companies have seen on the Switch is thanks to the lack of distraction.
Not being able to use the Switch to watch Netflix will make people buy and play games instead. I think it’s been a good strategy, but to bring in more people, they probably will have to put these services on there eventually. Why would I turn on the Switch to watch Netflix? Strumpan It makes me switch over to my PS4 to watch Netflix.
I thought the Netflix app was already ready to go, but Netflix was waiting for the go-ahead from Nintendo to pull the trigger. I was really hoping E3 would have details on a big UI update with themes and folders, and that Netflix might launch alongside that. Always find it odd when it takes that long to do it. They throw their apps on plenty of garbage out there. Why not a quality console like the Switch. While I am not against it and can see great benefits, there’s a lot to be said for it being soley a games console. Folders are my biggest wish and such a simple thing for Nintendo to add.
I’ve got a lot of games and it can sometimes take ages to find one. The main thing I want folders for though is so I can separate games that are downloaded onto a different SD card. What more needs to be said other than ‘We want your app’? Are you guys communicating via morse code or something? Con1990 WHY in gods name would it be anything but great if the switch could run Netflix and go on youtube. It only adds to the system? I believe online connectivity is quite poor in some parts of the console.
They should first look at improving such things before doing anything else. When Switch 2 gets announced next generation? Taking way too long right now. I’m personally okay with not having the functionality. In my house I have 9 other devices that can run Netflix. 3 of which are completely mobile. 4 of the 9 are in the game room with my Switch.
