A few years ago, I used to like the "weird" release dates. The occasional big and/or special title might get it's own "special" release on a Friday, which was kinda fun. Fridays aren't quite so...

If we look at the estimated cost of components after a teardown, the Switch costs about $100 less to build than the PS4 did at launch. $100 doesn't typically mean much, when all is said and done.

If we're being honest, they all "cheap out". Sony and Microsoft make profit off of boxes they charge $300-400 for. None of these are exactly high-end machines.

Once I saw that the hard mode was bringing back the old typewriter ribbons, I promptly decided that normal was the right fit for me.
