The Switch is even weirder. It's preexisting hardware, specifically an Nvidia Shield, and it's watered down to boot in order to lower power consumption. Versus the rest which was mostly custom stuff, the scene saw from miles ahead what the console could do, and also found out about vulnerabilities ahead of time.The Wii and especially the Switch though have no excuse. At the least they should be as strong as the 360 and XbOne
That's also on Nintendo for not even bothering to patch out a known hardware vulnerability until way later.
I remember when it was announced, with the fanboys gushing about revolutionary hardware. My take at the time was that it'd run on stock when docked, and severely downclock itself when handheld. 'lo and behold, it's friggin' downclocked from stock even when docked, and is even worse when handheld. A Shield is half-way decent, but a Switch is worse.
To top it off, the Switch Lite with its smaller process chips, wound up being the lowest common denominator running at the same specs as the handheld mode, but permanently.
