Switch won’t support Netflix
The Nintendo has just shared a new info about its new gen mobile gaming console Switch. The company that made the announcement of the first games for the Hybrid game console did not give information about other applications to be presented to the user. However, a news story originally published by Kotaku let us get more ideas on this topic. Nintendo Switch will not support Netflix and its derivative applications in the first place.
In the statement made by Nintendo, it was stated that in the first stage all the work is concentrated on Switch being a perfect game console. The company said support for online video applications could be provided with a future update. Moreover, the Nintendo Switch does not currently support Wii or Wii U controllers. However, it seems likely that the company will change this situation with an update to be released soon.
Social network Miiverse’s door is closed as well. But the Mii keep their assets. The switch has a hidden Mii Maker tool in its system settings. At this point, users will be able to create an avatar for themselves and place it in games. Users will also be able to choose from Nintendo-themed images to represent themselves in games. A maximum of eight user accounts can be created on the Nintendo Switch. Users can buy games through the eShop store of the area that covers their accounts.
It is not yet clear when Nintendo will be able to access Netflix and its derivative services from the next-generation gaming console. However, it is thought that Nintendo will not delay this work too much in order not to be left behind.
