Nintendo Switch launches without any streaming services which seems like a major faux-pas to me. For many families, gaming consoles serve more than a singular purpose. Our Wii is also how we watch Netflix at home. Having no streaming services available at launch (a feature that’s built into $79 Blu-ray players) is a huge miss for me. If I had $300 to spend on a console (and let’s face it, you’re going to spend closer to $500 because you’ll want to buy games and additional accessories) I wouldn’t buy one that did connect to at least Netflix. We don’t have cable or satellite TV so besides over-the-air channels, streaming services are the major way we consume content. Am I alone here?
