    Replaying Rogue Squadron II. Factor 5 were graphical wizards, but gameplay wise, they kinda sucked XD

    Finally got around to Tomb Raider 2013. Very predictable, but still fun

    I kinda miss the old Tomb Raider :(

    Yeah, I can see how those who grew up with the older ones might dislike the new direction, but I didn't, so I don't have that prior attachement

    Power: The Switch will be as powerfull as a current iPhone/Galaxy phone. Its far from beeing competitive with ps4/xbox one.
    Third Party Support: NX wont have big third party Support. Current gen AAA Games will skip the system.
    Price: Its to expensive for an handheld
    Power So we still dont know 100% exactly how powerfull the Switch will be but we know the SOC is made by Nvidia and its a custom tegra SOC. There are already 2 popular tegra chips released so far. The Tegra K1 (Shield Tablet) and the Tegra X1 (Shield Console). The Tegra X1 has a high energy consumption so isnt ideal for mobile usage. Here are some Benchmarks from both chips. I added the iPhone 7´s A10 Fusion SOC as comparison. Geekbench 3 Tegra K1: Singlecore: 1142 ; Multicore: 3609 Tegra X1: Singlecore: 1411 ; Multiscore: 4216 A10Fusion: Singlecore: 3487 Multicore: 5627 Antutu Tegra K1: 81.300 Tegra X1: 134.000 A10Fusion: 178.000 Manhatten (Offscreen 1080p) Tegra K1: 31 FPS Tegra X1: 54 FPS A10Fusion: 60 FPS
    Now we bring in the Ps4 (a PC build with Ps4 like performance) as well for the last comparison: Gfxbench T-rex offscreen Tegra K1: 66 FPS Tegra X1: 118 FPS iPhone 7: 102 Fps 2015´s Ipad Pro: 169 Fps Ps4: 580 Fps Latest unreleased Nvidia Tegra Chip (rumored x2): 183 Fps Source:
    So even if Nintendo has put in the latest Nvidia Tegra X2 chip, which will most likely be designed and tested for a non mobile solution (like X1), with bad energy effency and cooling problems, the Switch will be at maximal 30% of the power of the Ps4 or 50% of the Power of the Xbox One (or 2,3x the Power of the Wii U). Even this scenario so far is very unlikely. A custom, more energy effiecent X1 ship is more likely.
    The Nintendo Switch will NOT be significant stronger then modern iOS and Android Smartphone Flagshipes. In 1-2 Years, modern smartphone will already outperform the Switch significantly.
    Third Party Supprt Current Gen Games like Witcher 3, Mass Effect Andromeda, Battlefield 1 and co wont come to the NSwitch. Its just not capable of running those. The Gap in terms of Power between Nintendo Switch and Wii U will be similar to the Gap between Gamecube and Wii. We WONT see much improvement in graphics. Mario, Zelda and co wont look significant better. Third Party Games that are possible on the Switch will ALSO be possible on an current iPhone or Android Flagships. Its already possible to play Skyrim on an 2015´s iPad Pro, iPhone 7 and co. Controllers are already available and with the success of the Switch will definitly increase in terms of popularity and quality. xbox 360 games like Bioshock are already available on iPhones. With the very realistic scenario of 3rd Party games also coming to iOS/Android, many people will loose interest in the Switch. The only advantage the switch will have are Nintendo games. Exactly like the Wii U. People are not gonna get a new console for nintendo games and they wont get a new tablet either.
    Price With the modernst Nvdia ARM SOC equipped the switch will easily be around 300 - 400 dollars (the Nvidia Shield console is 250 bucks without a Screen). Nintendo is NOT gonna sell the system at a loss. Alot of 3ds sales come from people that are okay with paying 100 bucks for Mario/Pokemon. Those people wont get the NX: its to expensive. Same priece range like Wii U which was to expensive as well.
    All in all i predict 25-35 Mio lifetime sales. Feel free to bookmark this thread and we can talk again later ;)

    Zelda NES vs Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion 15 minutes ago

    Nintendo has released a series of screens comparing similar locations and scenes in both the original NES Zelda and Breath of Life, presumably to highlight the upcoming game's similarity and parallels with the original. Old man in cave   Desert mountains   River Rafting Stone Skull ...

    Prediction:Switch will go on to sell 100+ million units

    Soundwave said: Nem said: It really won't. It's too big to be seen as a popular portable. Its too weak to be a popular home console. It's a cute Nintendo system, but i don't see it blowing up to 100m, even if it manages to take off and they phase their portable market into it... i don't see it doing more than 40-50m. I think Nintendo would be relatively happy with 50...

    BasilZero said: curl-6 said: Well, it's 60fps on Wii and 30fps on 3DS, so naturally the former is better. ;) Yeah I mentioned that in my quick review on my wall Just gave it a read, glad you generally enjoyed it in spite of the downgrades. As someone who's only played the Wii version, I certainly wouldn't want to play DKCR at 30fps! XD...

    About Me: Bet with mZuzek: Zelda on Wii U will run at 720p (He says 1080p)

    Bet with WolfpackN64/kljesta64: The next Nintendo home console won't be a big leap over PS4 (They say it will)

    Bet with ExplodingBlock: Zelda U will not be Wii U exclusive (He says it will)
