Switch Isn’t Being Rushed to Market, It’s In Beta

Reports of de-syncing Joy-con controllers. Reports that there will be no Virtual Console at the launch of the system and so much more. Many people around the world are expressing the idea that the system feels rushed to launch and it’s not ready for primetime. Here’s the thing that I think Nintendo won’t admit, but I believe is true. This system has not been rushed to market. It’s still in beta, and we’re the beta testers.

They’re the ones that are willing to stand in line for hours waiting for just the chance to purchase a new product. They’re the ones who buy products almost on faith that it’s going to be good. They buy extra things that go with that product to help test it out. They’re going to be the ones to give you the most honest opinion about exactly what they think of a product so they’re the best, most honest test market. They’ve got the most to lose, so to speak, if a product isn’t very good. However, they’re also the best market to tell you what works and what doesn’t about a product.
