How the Nintendo Switch Delivered on a Decade of Promises

How the Nintendo Switch Delivered on a Decade of Promises

Presented on September 20, 2019.

Historically, gamers have made compromises as they pick their gaming device of choice. Living room consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One offer ultra-realistic graphics, comfortable controllers, but can only be used at home. Portable consoles like the 3DS and Playstation Vita had limited libraries primarily developed first-party. Smartphones offer convenient play on the go, but finding a high quality game is a challenge and control methods are limited.

I gave this talk to a private audience as an example of a groundbreaking product launched recently. Read the slides to see how the Nintendo Switch broke the mold and delivered on the promise of console quality games in a handheld.
