Not only is it a new console with unprecedented potential, it’s also the most innovative piece of hardware in the history of games

A new console is, but what does it all mean? The Switch is the most innovative piece of hardware Nintendo has ever created. Not only is it a new console, it’s also the most innovative piece of hardware in the history of games. And as a new console with unprecedented potential, it has a lot to prove to the people who already bought the Wii U. Nintendo has a track record that shows a willingness to change its mind on the internet – like a young, entrepreneurial kid that learns to tweet, but then accidentally fires his hand cannon at the keyboard. The Switch’s biggest innovation is the Joy-Con controllers, which use grip-style controllers that not only look cool, they actually function as rechargeable battery packs. If you want to recharge the Joy-Cons, you can stick it into a slot in the back of the Joy-Cons using the USB ports provided in the box. I’m not a big fan of the way this works at the moment – I like the idea of pressing a button to load up a game, but it doesn’t really work that way – but the idea is still a great one.
