Nintendo Switch should be defined as a Handheld or Portable Console

The concept of a "hybrid" home console and handheld may be great for marketing, but I think an encyclopedia must strive to have the most accurate information possible. Having said that, what part about the accepted definition of a Handheld or a Portable Console does not match Nintendo Switch? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handheld_game_console

It's essentially a Playstation Vita that plugs into a TV and has external controllers. This is nothing new for portable technology. People say it's a hybrid because you can play it at home, but you can play any handheld at home. You must play a home console at home, meaning that there is nothing about Nintendo Switch that resembles a home console. Again, "hybrid" may be an easy way to communicate to consumers that it has TV play, but in my opinion, it is a ridiculous, nonexistent definition. If you can leave the house with it, it's portable. End of subject. Hylian pi (talk) 16:32, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
