    I don’t know what people fear. The average user’s machine can’t run well emus from last gen consoles… Maybe one day the average machine will perfectly run wiiu,3ds, ps3, maybe vita too, but that will probably be when PS6, xboxyz123 and wii2me2uNu2 will be on the market.

      A potato has enough power to run Citra though… and if there was a Vita emulator out there, it probably would too.

      Also, a modern computer in the higher spectrum of the mid-range specs (talking about CoffeeLake i5 with GTX 1060 or something along those lines) can emulate the PS3 perfectly (well, by “perfectly” I mean its differences to the console won’t be improved by stronger hardware, but solely by improving the emulator)

      i think the problem is… Nintendos “switch console” is the last resort as the WII U failed.. and the gamers, dont want Nintendo to lose the Console wars..

        i kinda hope nintendo loses
        if playstation and xbox dominate then we can have less censorship (not in a lewd way) and more interesting games

    To the people complaining this may bring pirates to the console, c’mon baby, this is Nintendo. The Wii servers where riddled with cheaters, and pirates. If you want a secure console you knew to take your business elsewhere 10 years ago.

    Neither good or bad. Will probably progress really quickly since it’s familiar hardware… Still prefer to have the console’s portability to an emulator on my pc. It would be preferrable if the console wasn’t portable

    Oh great i love to see Switch bombed.. This crappy hardware doesn’t deserve the sales

    Look forward to the Switch doing everything. From running APKs and Android converted apps, to emluators for the first 4 gen of console games, to all kids of other stuff. Zsnes on Switch, please. (priorities)

    […] The hottest news relating to Nintendo Switch emulation right now is that the two recently released Pokémon Let’s Go games boot and get in-game on latest Yuzu canary builds! This comes as quite a bit of a surprise considering that development on Yuzu started a mere 10 months ago. […]
