Nintendo Switch 5.0 Firmware Potentially Outed by Parental Controls App

The Nintendo Switch will automatically download the firmware 5.0.0 firmware while it is connected online. This despite the console being perhaps the hottest thing in the gaming world now, and despite overwhelming clamor over its hybrid functionalities. GameMaker developers will now be able to bring their games to the only console that can be played anytime, anywhere, with anyone. The switch still doesn't have Netflix app for some reason.

This update also fixes the problem that was hiding some older play activity data, and it adds a notification to let you know when pre-ordered games have unlocked. One can imagine using this Switch to watch movies or some series about latest crime and drama during the long journey.

But only Hulu is available on the console, and many fans are scratching their heads as to why Netflix, perhaps the most popular video streaming service in the world, still isn't. Mirer said that Nintendo was more focused on gaming and this focus may change in the near future.

Mirer's remarks follow a tweet in January from the official Netflix account confirming that the streaming company was exploring opportunities with Nintendo. It is seen that the machine is easy to work and Netflix is already on every platform like TVs, Phones, Tablets, Gaming consoles. GameMaker Studio 2 Nintendo Switch edition is set for launch in summer 2018.

With the Switch, Nintendo is back in the game, so to speak: the console has propelled the games-maker to its former glory with monumental sales and global acclaim.
