Any chance of getting a Nintendo switch section of the forums?

A lot of us are mobile gamers and the switch is probably appealing to most of us. It would be cool to have a switch section of TA forums.

I would've figured not, but then again, Android does have its own section, so I'm guessing perhaps so. Unlike Xbox One and Playstation 4, Switch can be mobile (even though it's not "mobile" in by "techie terms", as a sort of mobile vs. handhelds vernacular).

I think that becomes relevant if the Switch picks up enough steam. Hard to say yet where things will go for it.
If you think it's important enough already (and people will post enough about it), best ask a TA staffer on Discord.
I'll point them to this thread too, just in case.

I'd argue that the Switch is a valid member of Touch Arcade, as it has a touch-sensitive screen...

So does a 3DS. So does a Vita.

The point of TouchArcade is to cover gaming on mobile devices. There are already plenty of websites that cover gaming on consoles -- handheld or otherwise. Mobile games are often ignored -- if not vilified -- by mainstream gaming media. That's why we need a forum that has a clear focus. I would see it as a loss if TouchArcade became just another gaming site, particularly considering how limited the coverage is (for legitimate reasons) and how many great mobile games slip through the cracks.

That's my 2 cents, anyway.

I agree. I think it's a little early to do that. The Switch will have to earn that spot. We'll see if it does or not. 😉
