Compared it to GB is unfair..  It had a very long run. 

Size or rather... Length isn't everything. ;)

Besides. If you removed the Gameboy, the trend is still clear. Dedicated mobile gaming is still in decline. Nintendo's devices have been in decline, Sony's devices have been in Decline whilst Phones and Tablets have exploded.

Even the amount of units the 3DS has shifted has shrunk.
3DS: 62 Million vs DS 154 Million.

Gameboy Advance did 81.5 million, Gameboy 118  million.

So it's the worst selling mainstream Handheld for Nintendo to date.

The market has shrunk and shifted... I think the main reason Nintendo was able to retain success in the handheld market is due to cost and the fact they target their handhelds to younger audiences... But it can't be denied that Mobile has eaten into that, some kids would prefer a tablet over a Nintendo Handheld these days.

Compared it to GB is unfair..  It had a very long run. 

.... but most of those sales came from the last third of the gameboy's life. It sold somewhere around 60 million of that 118 million after FY97, 10 years after the gameboy came on the market. Pokemon is a hell of a system seller.




It does not matter how many GFLOPS the GPU can handle, the ARM CPU is simply too slow and provides a hughe bottleneck.

That's it. Nintendo will not learn. Another failure is coming out. Sorry to say it guys, but I just don't see any reason to want this unless you are a Nintendo diehard.

They need to make a powerful next gen console that can handle modern ports and really good looking 3D Mario. Weaker than Xbox One when PS4 Pro is out and Scorpio is coming soon. That's ridiculous.

It might work in Japan, but everywhere else, it will bomb after initial release. It sounds like a slightly more powerful Wii U. If all of this is true, I will buy no Switch or future Nintendo products.

Why do we need a million more Call of Duty and Madden shovelware ports?  Good god they plaster that garbage everywhere and no Nintendo does NOT need it.

 

I'm sure it will run the next Tales, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Xenoblade, Metroid, etc just fine.

 

How's that Xenoblade Chronicles and Metroid working out for you on PS4/BroBox?

 

Nintendo knows their target audience, and it's not the FPS spec whores and CODHalo nade bros who are only into gaming NOW because it's cool or those who wouldn't have ever touched a NES or SNES in the 90s because "kids toy" when Nintendo WAS video games.

considering the sales of those two systems...pretty damn good!

What am i reading ? You think nintendo will put a 200 dolars console ? 250 ? AHAHAH

Also this is a forum, everyone have the right to comment. Is that so hard to think there is people who dont buy nintendo systems but wants them to have sucess?

All the things point to another WiiU situation and another cycle will continue.

I wouldn't laugh so strong when 250$ seems the most plaussible situation right now, also i hope you realize that to suggest Switch is gonna sell like WiiU is actually the most laughable part. 

I was right.
