There is one significant difference between Nintendo's portable console and Sony's and Microsoft's offerings: the Nintendo Switch is not a 'next-gen' console.

Despite that, the device is still very popular, recently surpassing the PS4 and Game Boy to become the third best-selling console of all time behind the Nintendo DS and PS2.
