The other day, Best Buy updated their listing for the Switch, adding in mentions of both YouTube and Netflix apps coming to the system. Later that same day, Best Buy said the update was a mistake on their behalf. Does that mean hopes for Netflix and YouTube on Switch are dead? That's not the case, according to Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime...

“When we launched the Switch, we were very clear we wanted to position the device as a game-playing device. We’ve done that, and so you’ve seen Hulu for example come on to the platform. In terms of other services, the conversations are on-going. We’ve got nothing to announce right now. But certainly those opportunities will come in due time.”
