                  Just to let anyone know who didnt notice. Reggie's birthday is just slightly off. He was born in '61 instead of '51

                                                          A small mistake in this excellent video; Reggie was born in 1961, not '51.

                                                                The Switch was not marketed as a handheld but a console that can be taken with you. Nintendo wanted to initially avoid it being viewed as a "handheld first" to avoid concern that the Switch would canibilize the marketshare of Nintendo's other handhelds.

But I even was shocked how much he had done even before joining Nintendo. And I just sit here writing this instead of trying to do something similar as well.
