Nintendo Switch Could Be Set To Announce The Feature You've All Been Asking For

Since the release of the Nintendo Switch fans have been after more for their console to do, and they might have their prayers answered very soon.


In order to compete with the competition, new tech needs to be implemented and this time it looks like it will be in the form of media streaming.

Business Insider reported on a Best Buy mistake, which was swiftly removed, that shows a new Nintendo Switch memory card for sale to enable the console to "Get access to a world of instant entertainment with this product. Just connect to the internet and stream movies, listen to music, and access a wide variety of other content."

This means that YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and a bunch of other services will be up for grabs so you can spend even more time stuck to your screens.

Finally, we can do more than just play video games with our video games console! I know, this might sound a little daft, but you can literally do this on any current generation console. One major advantage to the Switch however is it's on the move capability, which makes it the perfect portable streaming device.

As to why it took so long for this new feature to be added is beyond me. Maybe Nintendo wanted to do things differently, but it will definitely provide more reasons for fans of other consoles to get their hands on one.

This leak hasn't either been confirmed nor denied by Nintendo but as we are set to hear their E3 conference at 5pm BST, it might have been a little more than an 'accidental' error over at Best Buy, as it's caught the attention of lots of media outlets and fans alike.

The fact that this listing teased "A wide variety of other content" makes us believe this was done on purpose, but they still wanted some surprise to show off later on. Could this mean that more than just streaming is going to be available, perhaps a fully supported web browser? Is this something you'd want to be put onto your Switch device? We know we would!
