A lot of people still won’t buy Nintendo consoles just because they have the same specs as the competition. You have to ask how many of those consumers would they take from. Most likely none. Especially if all your friends play team Microsoft or Sony. Almost everyone will go with what their friends pick to play with them. The same applies to the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo Switch’s specs won’t be a hindrance
Nintendo market now is much different than the Wii U, though. They are probably going to take the vita market and the 3ds market. Which has third support from most Japanese developers.
They will probably advertise it as play at home or on the go. Graphics are nice but people being able to take the game on the go is a selling point as well.
We don’t know what games are coming to the Nintendo Switch. But they could say “hey you can play FF7 Remake on the go” or whatever [insert your favorite third party game here].
The same could be said for 3ds or Vita games you want to play on the big screen. Assuming it sells well.
There are also a lot of Android and iOS games that are suck because of touchscreen controls. And the respective market for Android and iOS games is flooded with garbage. The Switch could essentially make these games shine with actual controls and tweaks to the game mechanics.
The switch’s only gimmick is to play on the go. Which isn’t really a gimmick like 3d or dual screens etc.
