Somewhere. I think.

It's been less than a month since the latest Firmware update, but guess it's already time for another update for the Switch.

Sadly, nothing too exciting...

General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience, including:
  • Resolved an issue where certain games don’t recognize a Nintendo Switch Online membership for a short time after purchase
Looks like there's also a controller update.

A new partnership to solve the space issue with using carts, Sony bringing UMD2 to the Switch.
You know what. People joke but man if Nintendo and Sony teamed up that would be one hell of a combination. Let Sony handle the hardware and Nintendo focus on just making their games. It would be glorious. Never happen but man it would be amazing.

Hmm, one of my joycons still fails to update, even when paired to another Switch. Gets stuck on 1% and the update fails. Anyone else have this problem?

It only sucks cause everytime I go to the home page it'll ask me to try to update.

Two companies with almost completely opposite business strategies teaming up would be one hell of a combination alright.

Sony's hardware has never been anything special, they offer very little by being the 'hardware side' apart from being willing to lost billions to gain market share. Nintendo's consoles were more powerful than Sony's for the first two generations they competed. Sony's only true bleeding edge console ever was PS3 and it was a disaster to develop for. Their latest is just a laptop CPU PC in a large black box.

..... the PSP was the future, years ahead of what Nintendo had out. It was dark magic.
Same for the Vita but only because the 3DS was so ancient compared to it.

PSP was indeed Sony's other cutting edge hardware along with PS3 - but if we're talking handheld, Sony could not top the Switch. The Switch is more cutting edge than PSP was for time of release.

And ironically for this argument, the PSP was extremely hamstrung by Sony's hardware idiocy - using optical discs and memory sticks primarily because Sony was trying to push two more formats instead of actually providing the best hardware for the job of being a handheld console.

There is sure big problem with the joy con, that Nintendo often need to update them, why i need to update them several times if there is no problem? To prevent 3rd party controllers? The Pro controller don't gets that many updates.
