The Nintendo Switch is a revolutionary handheld device that can be played on-the-go or as a traditional home gaming console. It has become highly popular since it was released several months ago and is now Nintendo’s fastest-selling gaming device.

However, the Nintendo Switch has its limitations, most notably is its power or lack thereof. The hybrid console cannot compete with the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One when it comes to performance. In fact, popular game titles such as “Call of Duty” and “Grand Theft Auto”, just to name a few, won’t be arriving for the Switch because of its mediocre hardware.

If the lack of power discourages you from buying the Switch, here are a few reasons that would help you decide otherwise.

The Nintendo Switch is faster than you think

Turning on the hybrid console and playing a game is surprisingly fast. It also has a feature where a user can go directly to the dashboard mid-game just by pushing the home button. Although the PS4 and Xbox One have this feature as well, the Switch does it much faster than the two home consoles.

Because of the portability of the Switch, sleep mode has become an essential feature of the handheld device.

Let’s say you’re commuting for work and decided to play a few levels of your favorite game on the Switch while riding the train and when you arrive at your stop, you can enable sleep mode and continue playing until you arrive at your destination.

The $299 price tag is not that expensive, here’s why

The Switch is a tad more expensive compared to the PS4 and Xbox One. The $299 price tag may even increase up to $400 if you buy the console bundled with a game like “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”

However, this is actually a reasonable price for a new gaming console.

Think about this, the Super NES cost $199 when it was launched in 1991 and after inflation, that figure would be $350 in today’s currency.

More exciting game titles are coming to the Switch

Let’s face it; portability, affordability and quickness are nothing if there aren’t games worth playing on the Switch. Thankfully, Nintendo learned its lesson from the Wii U fiasco.

Exclusive games are headed to the Nintendo Switch that started with the release of “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and the fighting game “Arms”. Moreover, “Splatoon 2” and “Super Mario Odyssey” are on its way very shortly.

The most anticipated game for the handheld console would be the new “Pokemon” title slated for early 2018.
