Out of all the things you could say about Nintendo's hybrid console, "FORTNITE ESSENTIALS" is not the first thing that comes to mind.
As they often do, EB are having a sale. It's actually quite a good one in this instance: you can grab a Switch for $399, which is a solid deal. But on the listing page, there's something a bit weird...
Fortnite essentials? I mean, sure, you need a system of some description to play Fortnite, but that's a weird way to pitch a machine that also lets you play Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, DOOM, Wolfenstein 2 and the Jackbox games in public.
Guess that's a sign of the times, though. There must be tons of sales reps and managers who have people coming in, going "I'd like to buy Fortnite please" or asking people about Fortnite.
An entire console would certainly count as an "essential" - I mean, you can play Fortnite on your phone if it's not a potato - although it's strange to see the Nintendo platform pitched this way. Could you call the NES a Mario essential?
