Business Insider recently went hands-on with the Nintendo Switch at the press event which took place on Friday. The publication caught up with Kit Ellis to get some more information regarding the Nintendo Switch and multimedia application such as Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube etc. Ellis said that as it’s a dedicated games machine, it won’t have many multimedia applications at launch. So it’s unlikely to have Netflix etc.
The Switch isn’t going to replace your iPad — it’s a dedicated gaming machine to the point where it won’t have many multimedia functions at launch, Nintendo’s Kit Ellis told me. Don’t plan to watch Netflix on the Switch, for instance.
