Yesterday I wrote about the simplicity of Nintendo Switch, and how it may actually be a blessing in disguise. As such, I've very much come to terms with its lack of non-gaming functionality, streaming services, or really any apps at all that aren't games. Still, it's understandable that many Switch owners aren't taking the current state of things so lightly, and as such Nintendo appears to have put Reggie on the case.
Speaking with The Washington Post earlier today, Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé made remarks about incoming services Switch owners can expect, while still upholding Switch's "games first" messaging.
We’re talking to a range of companies about other services, companies like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon — things that will come in time. In our view, these are not differentiators. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play. And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform.
