Should we just redirect this to Nintendo Switch? This just appears to be another category list (with most of them even also found on Switch Block (disambiguation)), when we can just link to Category:Switches with {{redirect}} on the console's page.

Sounds like what I'd do. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 21:31, September 30, 2019 (EDT)
Thing is though one could easily be thinking of P Switch so I think that's a bad idea. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:20, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
That's not exactly what a disambiguation page is for, and that's why it's so bloated because of the idea that anyone could be thinking of one of the other "switches" too. Like I mentioned, we have a category for all of those. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:47, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
They've been called just "switch" before, and they're so absolutely ubiquitous I think they're on par for importance with a shorthand name for a console. And a 7-year-old looking for info on that probably won't automatically understand how categories work (I know I didn't when I was about 10 and found this place....)

I still think most people now would search "Switch" looking for the console. If anything we can move this to "Switch (disambiguation)" and link to it with {{redirect}} on the console's page. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:48, October 2, 2019 (EDT)
