RUMOR - Switch won't support USB hard drives, can't charge while using kickstand

GN Version 5.0

These rumors once again come from LetsPlayVideoGames and their sources close to Nintendo...

- hardware model shown in the reveal featured a USB-C port for power
- this port will be able to be used to charge the handheld while away from the Switch Dock
- position of the USB-C port means you will not be able to charge it while the system is propped up on its kickstand
- the Switch's lackluster battery is being made up for with the ability to quickly charge
- Nintendo doesn’t have any plans to support USB Hard Drives
- allowing consumers to attach external drives to the Dock will cause players to see the system as less inherently portable
