Ya boy Diego approves of this episode.

Karate Kid and Daniel not winning the karate tournament? Hmmm. As a kid I probably would not have liked that ending but as an adult I can certainly agree that would make it a better movie. Can't think of a kid movie that had the team you were cheering for all the way lose.

I'm nervous about the Amico (pronounced like a certain 'toys to life' accessory), only because it feels like a more expensive novelty...time will tell - and a lot could change in 2 years.
But my comment on streaming is more about whether the games would be streamed or if there would be local hard drive storage. There's been no talk about the internal memory, so I'm wondering if this is going to be an 'online only thing where you'll rapidly download the game if you want to play it' vs. locally storing the game on the system.

It's got HDMI, so people wanting to stream it on Twitch/YT "should" have zero problems.

I agree with Mars that there is a niche of people who would be interested in a Commodore 64 video - especially non-American retro game enthusiasts. I think I played a baseball game on a C64 once visiting a relative, but that was my only exposure.

As for selling your Switch, didn't you get it mainly from in store credit to begin with? From dust to dust, as they say. I think people are trading in the original to get one of the bundled deals that have artwork on them - Pokémon or Smash Bros.

The whole time you were telling the story about the kid wanting the Fortnite Switch I was like, but that is a free game?!
