I want one. Day one. Hopefully Zelda is at launch.

When even YOU are optimistic about something, that's saying a lot!

That's "NX"? I am kind of disappointed from this. Excpeted much more from Nintendo Switch after all the hype it got in the last few months... It's basically just a Wii U with the addition of being portable... Name is awful too (Nintendo Next or Nintendo Nexus would have been much better)... Also the whole hybrid thing hasn't been implemented good by Nintendo, who goes out with such a big tablet thing to play outside? It looks completely embarrassing if people play with these things outside imo. Why not make it in the size of a smartphone?

Interesting. However, this thing needs to be $199, $249 AT MAX, for it to succeed. If Nintendo thinks they can get $299-$399 for this thing, they're fooling themselves. Also, that Dpad is pure shit.

I say $299 myself. It is pretty strong device or concept considering the portability of it. 

I might myself be willing to accept just a bit higher, however it would be dead in the water above $299. 



 

Anyone else noticed that the trailer shows King Boo in Mario Kart? He's not in MK8, is he? Odd.

Look again, you will also see something similar to Double Dash. I think safe to assume that is Mario Kart Switch....

You're right. I focused only on King Boo so I totally skipped that. Considering MK Switch, Zelda, Splatoon port and the 3D Mario game it looks like Nintendo has a few heavy hitters in the work to hype the living hell out of the Switch the first year.

It looks like they are enhancing the ports for the WiiU. Because you just see it for second but they use the spin boost/antigrav stuff in the game while they were panning over it. So my bet is Splatoon and Kart are enhanced ports of the Wii U games.

That's what it will probably be called, but I think this is Mario Kart 8 expanded upon. Similar to what they did before with DLC updates. But a bit more than that this time around. I expect the same thing to happen to Smash.

Wow, nice. Finally, took them long enough. The announcement to release window is officially the shortest of any console ever, assuming it releases in March like it's supposed to.

Or the longest ever, if you start from March 2015.



More or less what I expected, I'm not sold on the idea so far, it looks like a more advanced Wii U in many ways and it still appears to aim for tablet customers, which is a mistake with home console games, in my humble opinion.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.
