Ever since its announcement, the Nintendo Switch has been a divisive console. Preorder numbers are looking fairly healthy across the board for the portable hardware, and yet scores of people are playing soothsayer and declaring the Switch will be the death of Nintendo. The argument has even reached the Eurogamer video team, as Ian Higton and I butted heads over the Switch in these two videos.

Since I pride myself on being the sporting type, I'll let my opponent go first. In this video you'll find four reasons why Ian decided against preordering the Nintendo Switch.

Right, my turn. Maybe it's because I was raised playing Nintendo games, but I think there's a lot to be excited about when it comes to the Nintendo Switch. Allow me to convince you.

Those are our arguments for and against the Switch, anyway, but feel free to share your thoughts on Nintendo's new console in a calm and orderly fashion in the comments below.
