Nah man, that's you. You seem to have some weird hate boner for Nintendo. You won't consider it a hybrid (which it is) and you argued endlessly that the PS1 (or was it PS2?) was more innovative than the Nintendo 64.
The Switch is a hybrid. Deal with it. PSP does not compare. I don't know anything about a dock you mentioned on the PSP. It came with the device? Never heard of it. Sounds like it was an accessory. Accessories don't count bro. It would be like that screen you could hook up to your PS1 to make that portable. PS1 was not portable dude.
The dock with the Switch is an included accessory... I had to buy a third-party dock because I couldn't use 1080p on my Switch because it caused flickering on my Samsung TV. The dock doesn't do anything special. If the console is docked (with any dock) it will let you use the full capability of the console's hardware. The "console's hardware" being the actual tablet as that is where everything is contained.
That site shows the breakdown of the Nintendo Switch hardware. Look at the circled parts in this picture:
Nintendo themselves are showing that the console is the tablet, and the dock is a separate piece of hardware.
Off topic, I never claimed that the PS1 was more innovative than the N64. I just corrected misinformation. The fact that you're bringing this up months later shows how triggered you were by that. You're a known Nintendo fanboy, so your opinion means nothing.
To be specific a games console is a piece of dedicated hardware whose primary purpose is to play videogames.
You're splitting hairs and continually using double standards to try and give a reason why the switch should be considered differently. You argued the internal components but when it was pointed out that other consoles used mobile specific components you shifted to something else evading the point that by your own logic the other consoles would be considered handheld too if based on the type of internal components.
No I didn't. The Switch has more than just a mobile processor. The Switch also has a built-in screen, and an internal battery. You're the one trying to say that since the PS4/Xbox One used a Jaguar processor that negates my claim that the Switch is portable. There are multiple aspects to be considered, and you're hand-waving away everything I said because other consoles also had one piece of mobile hardware.
My problem with calling the Switch a portable is that it assumes a distinct and separate use and market from other consoles. This is the reason why console warriors bring up the definition and argue it so defensively in every damned sales thread shat shows the Switch doing well. Secondly, it assumes a primary function which the device is not presented as. The consoles is designed to be played at home and is capable of being moved to and used in other locations more easily than other consoles - all the marketing presents this and even the name focuses on this.
Nintendo themselves show that the console is the tablet, and the dock is separate from the console. Therefore it is a handheld console even if it can display out to a TV. Just like the PSP.
There's definitely an argument to be made about Switch not being a home console, but I don't think power or architecture are good indicators of this. To me it makes sense to class Switch as a hybrid.
As with the above, it's not just the Tegra processor that makes it a mobile device. It's the built-in screen and the internal battery in combination with the mobile processor. That, and the fact that Nintendo's own website shows that the console is the tablet, and the dock is a separate piece from the console. Ergo, the Switch is a handheld console that can be docked to use an external display.
