A couple of months ago, we saw how a YouTuber created the world’s largest and functional PS5 console. Not to be outdone, another YouTuber by the name of Michael Pick has decided to do something similar, except that instead of the PS5, he has opted to create the world’s largest and playable Nintendo Switch console.
Qualcomm is a company many of us are familiar with when it comes to mobile chipsets, but it seems that the company could be planning on moving into other product categories. According to a report from Android Police, they have heard from their sources that apparently Qualcomm wants to design its own gaming console.
The Nintendo Switch has been around for a while now. While Nintendo did give the console a bit of an upgrade with a larger battery, for the most part the console remains unchanged. It still uses the same chipset it did back in the day, the same display, the same amount of RAM, and so on.
For the past few years, we have been hearing rumors that Nintendo could be working on a new version of the Switch. Each time we hear that rumor, Nintendo comes back and denies it, leading us to wonder if we will ever see an upgraded version of the console, especially with Sony and Microsoft having launched their next-gen consoles.
While Nintendo has denied that they have plans to launch an updated Switch model, it would make sense if they did. After all, there are new entrants to the console market in the form of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and it would be smart of Nintendo to keep the attention on themselves by launching an updated console.
For a while now, we have been hearing rumors that Nintendo is apparently working on a new Switch model. This is said to be the “Pro” model that will offer up better performance compared to the current model, could use a mini LED display, and so on. However, if you were hoping to hear about it soon, don’t hold your breath.
For a long time, the Nintendo 3DS was one of the company’s most popular and best-selling consoles. It wasn’t hard to see why, given that the Wii U was a flop, plus the ability to take your favorite game on the go was immensely appealing. However, it seems that the Nintendo Switch has managed to dethrone the 3DS.
If there is one thing to love about the Nintendo Switch is the various customization options that users have when it comes to colors. If you’ve yet to hop on board the Switch bandwagon or maybe you don’t mind getting another one, then you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has since unveiled a new Mario themed Switch in red and blue.
While the Nintendo Switch is a pretty amazing console, in terms of power it is outclassed by the likes of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which is why it isn’t too surprising to learn that Nintendo could be planning a “Pro” version of the console that could offer more power output.
Nintendo certainly turned things around for themselves following the debacle that was the Wii U. The Switch has managed to captivate gamers around the world, thanks to its fun family games, strong first-party titles, and also its hybrid nature that allows gamers to play it on the game or on a TV at home.
Staying in a hospital when you’re sick can be a bit depressing, especially since you’ll be surrounded by other sick people. However, Nintendo and Starlight are hoping to make your stay a little more manageable as they have announced that they will be rolling out the Starlight Nintendo Switch Gaming stations to more hospitals across the US.
The Nintendo Switch is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra chipset, which unlike Intel processors, is based on the ARM architecture. This means, at least in theory, that games playable on the Switch should also be playable on other ARM-based devices, like Apple’s new M1 Mac computers, right?
The launch of the Nintendo Switch came at a rather good time. It arrived somewhat in the middle of the lifecycle of existing consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One, which meant that gamers who were bored and were looking for something new to play had the Switch to turn to, which ultimately resulted in the console’s success.
If you have been following social media, you might have noticed that one of the more popular games these days is indie hit Among Us. The game has been played by everyone, including some politicians who have used it to try and reach out to more people.

Typically, gaming controllers for consoles work for the consoles they were designed for. However, funnily enough, it appears that Sony’s DualSense controller designed for the PS5 works with the Nintendo Switch if you’re willing to spend a bit of money to buy a third-party accessory.
The Nintendo Switch’s hardware isn’t quite as powerful compared to the likes of the PS5 Pro or the Xbox One X, and as such, games do not necessarily run at the same settings compared to other consoles, and also as a result, not all games are necessarily compatible as well. This is where cloud gaming comes in handy.
Due to the fact that the current Nintendo Switch can be played on your big screen TV, we suppose not many people paid too much attention or cared too much about the display quality on the console itself. While it might not necessarily be the best display we’ve seen, it’s more than adequate for most gamers.
If you wanted to buy a new Joy-Con to replace your current Joy-Con on your Nintendo Switch, you’d typically need to buy them in a pair, which is pretty expensive at $80, especially if you only need one.

Console makers love exclusives as it draws players to their platform in terms of both software and hardware, but from time to time we do see some collaborations. Take for example Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where we saw Microsoft’s Banjo & Kazooie make an appearance, and later characters from Minecraft as well.
If you haven’t been playing your Nintendo Switch for a while, there is a chance you might have packed it away somewhere. However, it seems that according to a tweet by Nintendo Japan, the company is actually recommending that gamers charge their Switch consoles at least once every six months.
