Nintendo Switch: Price, specs and everything you need to know


The Nintendo Switch is a “hybrid” console that can be used at home on a TV, and also as a portable console similar to Nintendo’s Game Boy and DS lines. Players can change between the console’s home and portable configurations on the fly, too, hence the name “Switch.” Transitioning between these mode is remarkably simple, and the most you have to do for the Switch to register a screen change is press the L and R buttons simultaneously. Simply placing the Switch into its dock will turn the system on, and the default settings even allow the Switch to automatically turn on your TV
