Article Pachter says the Switch lineup is 'underwhelming' and $300 is "problematic"
Michael Pachter - controversial video game, social media and electronics analyst gives his verdict on the Nintendo Switch and it's not great.

He predicts that the Switch will have an uphill battle but reach one million sales by March 31st and in the following financial year (April 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018) Nintendo will sell around five million units.​

He also told investors:

A lot of what Pachter said is felt throughout the community. Beyond 2017 the Switch will heavily rely on 3rd party support!

But the question remains, will third parties bite?

Achievements/Trophies on Switch?
So, I briefly mentioned in a previous post how I'm really hoping for an achievement system on The Switch and some people seemed to agree so as Luigi said, I think it would be a good idea to have a thread on this idea. Anyone have any thoughts on how this could be implemented or ways it could differentiate itself from Playstation's trophies or Xbox's achievements. Any rewards that you guys might like for gaining one of these achievements? How about a tier system to differentiate how difficult it was to get an achievement?

As you may be able to tell I am all aboard this idea. I don't think it's something that every gamer necessarily needs but I think it adds a lot to the system and if I truly love a game I would love to be able to display that I went above and beyond in completing it. I do understand that some people don't like them and if any of you have that opinion, care to explain? Interested to hear the cons in adding this to switch.

While we're at it what are some achievements you guys can make up for Nintendo classics?
