I flew too close to the 1TF sun and my Switch wings melted.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I flew too close to the 1TF sun and my Switch wings melted.

You said it yourself, they're fans. Fanboys cant be reasoned with.

My wings aren't melted, Switch still is the most powerful handheld console of all time according to the rumors. So I'm not dissapointed obviously.

About 3 times the power of the Vita.

150+ Gflops (neogaf) when not docked, abit under what the Wii U is.

Its decent as a handheld.

As a home console I was hopeing for abit more "oompf" to it.

Why is it that so many Nintendo fans, in spite of hard facts, still jump on board the hype train, expecting Nintendo to actually release a competitive current gen system that can go toe to toe with the competition. Why do Nintendo fans, after so many disappointments,  think that Nintendo will change their ways and give Nintendo fans a machine they could be proud of. A machine that could get current gen third-party games that would be equal or superior to the other

because we literally no nothing about the systems power Mr.Rumors

Oh no, we've found one. Still holding onto the dream. This is a sad day.

Why is that people is so fucking whiny towards Nintendo and always talk about the same power bullshit and not about new option that Nintendo is trying to offer, the future gameplay design and games, omg but let's be happy because now I have more teraflops on my playstation and I can play shit games at 45 fps and upscaled 4k.

 

You seemed pretty bothered when you said this just a few days ago. "And btw the switch is going to be as powerful or really close to the xbox, that's what people were expecting because of the form factor." You also said you were "100% sure" it would be equivalent to an XBO in power. Why make such predictions if you don't care about power. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8199405

Because the thread was about power? The xone is like 4 times more powerful than a wii u and switch is like 2.5 more powerful than a wii u when the device is docked, that's like 1.5 behind xbox one, hardware wise that's close.

And I don't care about the power at all, i have my pc for that, I care about the concept and the games, but I see people that don't even know how these consoles work whining because some media site told them that the switch is not powerful enough, and now "omg I'm so disappointed pre order cancelled" so they don't even care about the games or concept?? I say If they have such a boner for power buy a gtx 1080 and plug that shit inside your ahole

I think I held a fairly realistic outlook on the Switch. This thing is a handheld. It's not housed in a big box with fans, heat syncs, and other such components we find in modern consoles. If we have a small package, and if the rumours are to be believed, a small price, then there's absolutely no way we can expect the same power as current gen consoles. And we know that a 500+ dollar Nintendo Switch would get annihilated. So Nintendo is doing what they have to do, given what we know of it already.

That being said, I have about a 95% realistic expectations, and about 5% holding out hope that Nintendo surprises us with something awesome. But either way, I'm purchasing this day one. I will buy whatever system lets me play Nintendo-developed games.



No i simply think we should wait till proven, i have a pc and ps4 anyways

It's not 1.5 behind XBO. Docked - 400Gflops XBO - 1.3Tflops It's a little less than a third. I don't think it's about people having a "boner for power" they're not after the MOST powerful system otherwise they'd never be interested in the switch even prior to this news. I was on the fence when I thought it was going to be a 600Gflop system and expected 400 Gflop's undocked. I didn't expect 400 Docked and 150 Undocked. It's not about wanting a power-house such as the 1080. It's about wanting a device that is powerful ENOUGH, that is somewhat competent. How long will this device last? Are we going to be gaming on a 400Gflop "home console" in 2020? Alongside the ps5 and next xbox? Such a pitiful device doesn't deserve a free pass cause it's nintendo. If this was an Xbox/PlayStation you would mock the shit out of it.

Switch=2-2.5x
