Nintendo's Switch Pro announcement is a huge disappointment

Ah, the Nintendo Switch Pro. Rumoured for months (nay, years), the high-spec games console has yet to make an appearance. We've heard plenty about the potential graphics and specs, but these remain confined to the realm of rumour. And if an unprecedented new announcement from Nintendo is anything to go by, that isn't about to change any time soon.

Responding to reports that a 4K version of the Switch could be on the way soon, Nintendo made the uncharacteristic decision to directly respond to the rumour. Is the Switch Pro imminent? Nintendo says no. (Check out the best Nintendo Switch deals if you're ready to start gaming.)
