It is no secret that Nintendo is busy preparing new hardware; but the question remains: what will it be and when will it be revealed? While we are confident Nintendo is working on a revision equipped with a new SoC & 4K features with DLSS support; one must consider an alternative angle in which a secondary model makes an appearance in advance of such a major hardware change. Enter the Switch XL.
We chat with Digital Foundry's John Linneman about this multi-platform and why it is not only supported by Nintendo's historic patterns; but why it makes sense from a business, economical and logistics point-of-view. Could Nintendo introduce a Switch XL ahead of the Switch Pro? We discuss why it may happen.
