    The Nintendo Switch is at the Heart of Another Bendgate

    The Nintendo Switch has been a success story so far, but there have been bumps in the road.

    Nintendo Switch Review

    It’s been about a week since Nintendo’s hybrid handheld/home console, the Switch, shipped out.

Once plugged in, the Xbox One will prompt the user to select whether the drive will be used for media (music, videos, etc.) or for games. Media mode will allow […]
