Nintendo Switch, what did you like, and what did you dislike?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch, what did you like, and what did you dislike?

Likes:

It has a regular controller (I would say sometimes, but I`d never use the `switched` version of the console anyway so it`s really all the time)
MK8 port (the only exclusive game I actually enjoyed on the Wii U)

Dislikes:
Looks to be more of a handheld with an hdmi port than a home console
They didn`t mention the two things I want to know most about, ie. price and achievements



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

A few things to look at

The games that were there looked cool. Always down for Mario/Kart, Splatoon, ect.

 

Didnt realise ports would be such a big thing. 

Well, the Mario wasn't a port, lol. Don't think Splatoon was either, but it did look like a Wii U game

Can't be Wii U level in terms of power because the persion was playing Skyrim Remastered so the console has to be minimum around X1 level for that due to the new textures in the game and all.

Skyrim on the XBO isn't pushing the console to its limits though.



Looks awesome.

The fact it appears to have the best 3rd party support for a Nintendo console since the SNES is really enticing.

Does it? I think the Gamecube had some really good 3rd party support which will be hard to beat...

Seems like Wii U in terms of power, please correct me if I'm wrong.

If it's really a new Tegra chip, It'll be quite a bit more powerful than the Wii U's hardware. Nvidia is also coöperating with Nintendo to tightly integrate the OS with the machine. I expect around PS4 performance (which with Nintendo's optimization is quite a good thing).

Home console wise, it'll be ok, portable console wize, it'll be quite a sight to behold (imagine Pokémon on that thing).

Based on what was shown, I'd guess it was the X1, would gladly be wrong though.

Who said it is, the Wii U wouldn't be able to run the remastered version due to the added textures alone so the platform would have to be in range of X1 to manage that.



Pros:
- The name and marketing are huge steps up from the wii u
- Playing Games like skyrim on the go is big (although Vita was similar so I wouldn't call this big)
- The pro controller is in the ads, so maybe 1 is bundled in by default
- no crazy motion controls or obstructive gimmicks in console mode

Cons:
- Third party support actually seems really low (skyrim and NBA are big, but bigger third party games are on the way and they did not market any of those)
- Both the tablet and the pro controller look clunky to use (especially when compared to the ps4 and xbox one controller)
- Power seems to be on the weak side
- the detachable sides will most definitely get lost
- the tablet actually doesn't seem to be touchscreen. If it was they probably would have shown it
- that tablet is going to be a pain to carry around. It's too big for pockets and it doesn't fold up like the 3ds



I cant think of a single negative tbh. It looks great. Its a huge negative if it has a region lock though.
