Tech Tuesday: Looking at the Nintendo Switch

Posted at 7:39 PM, Mar 28, 2017

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A new console generation was recently introduced by Nintendo, and Genius Phone Repair is diving in.

The Nintendo Switch released earlier in March and immediately sold out; it's the fastest-selling home console in history, moving 1.5 million units in two weeks.

The Switch is a hybrid console: it's primarily a home console with a docking station, but it can also be removed from the dock and be played as a portable device. When being used a portable, it can be interacted with its touch screen as well as with the new Joy-Con wireless controllers.

Nintendo also offers parents control over what their kids play and watch with parental controls. And because it doubles as a portable gaming device, it can be brought along for long car rides.
