Nintendo has announced a new partnership with Philips, but not for another console...

The popularity of the new Switch console and it’s ability to play throughout the house has brought a new partnership to the video game company. Upcoming firmware version 4.01 for the Switch will bring Philips Hue integration. The firmware was leaked with the video below.

Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime stated in a recent Washington Post interview (https://www.washingtonpos...h/?utm_term=.08ade171f06c) that “We’re talking to a range of companies about other services, companies like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon — things that will come in time. In our view, these are not differentiators. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play. And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform.”

Philips is aiming to be a new differentiator by allowing you to have home automation as a part of the software as you use your Switch throughout your house. Look for further details of this at E3 2017.

As much as the world has changed, our still somewhat niche spot as gamers has adapted to the times as well as the games. We have created our online museum of our past. We share our experiences about the present. And we will evolve together as the gaming community continues to change. I hope to write about some of my experiences with gaming, as well as on some topics that were not directly relevant to me, but to the community or you personally.
