TIME Magazine has released their top 25 best inventions of 2017, and the Nintendo Switch made the list. Here’s what they wrote about Nintendo’s handheld/home console.
“When you have a great game, that moment of disappointment is when you have to stop playing,”says Reggie Fils-Aime?, president of Nintendo of America. And so, with the Nintendo Switch, you don’t have to. In one form, it’s a handheld tablet, allowing a single user to game on the go. In another, two controllers slide off from the sides, allowing multiple users to get in on the action. Once they get home, they can slide that tablet into a docking station and continue playing on a legitimate home console. Gamers seem to like the flexibility: Nintendo has sold 7.63 million Switches since its March debut; it’s expected to surpass the company’s previous console, the Wii U, by the end of its fiscal year. —Lisa Eadicicco
