Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Hideo Kojima Shares His Thoughts on Nintendo Switch

“The fact you can play something at home and take it outside, this is the gamer's dream.”

Metal Gear and Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima has commented on Nintendo’s new console, the Switch.

Speaking to IGN at RTX Sydney, Kojima said he especially likes the idea of starting a game at home and being able to continue on the go.

“You might be familiar with the fact that for a previous game that I did, we had a specification that we called 'Transfarring' where you could take the saved data from the PS Vita and move it over to the PS3 and back and forth like that,” Kojima told IGN. “I believe [Switch] is an extension of that idea. The fact you can play something at home and take it outside, this is the gamer's dream. The Switch is an evolution of that.”

“For example, often when you buy a Blu-Ray disc, it'll have a code on the inside for a digital version, so in the same respect you can watch it at home and then take it on the go on your tablet and smartphone,” he continued. “This is how movies and TV are moving, and this is how games should go.”

Kojima added that he sees Switch as the beginning of a future where people will be able to play any game on any device.

“I feel like cloud technology is what everything will eventually move to,” he said. “It's further behind right now than I think where people thought it would be at this point, but I think it will go there, and when the infrastructure is ready, you'll be able to play everything, on every device, anywhere. The Switch is the predecessor to this step."

But...but it doesn't have 2 GTX 1080's! It definitely must be trash then, right?



“This is how movies and TV are moving, and this is how games should go.”

Couldn't agree with him more.  I've also been saying this for some time. Which is why I think Nvidia said they'll be working with Nintendo for at least 20 more years. I think they're going to strengthen their relationship, and eventually create a Hybrid that's to be reckoned with.



He says it's the gamers dream, but, like most third party companies, we all know he won't be bringing any games to the switch (probably because of the power gap).

Many people are saying all these wonderful things about the switch, but until they actually announce something, I'll just compare them to EA and their "unprecedented" partnership on the Wii U.



He was as complimentary as he could be for someone who is on Sony's payroll. Then again, this is Kojima; he has "screw you, I'll say what I want" levels of seniority in the gaming industry so I doubt he was holding anything back. Plus, Sony is on top and going in a different direction when it comes to gaming so they probably see themselves being removed enough from Nintendo in-terms of target audiences to allow themselves to be complimentary. I doubt they would allow their employees and associates to be as positive when it comes to Microsoft.

Not only that, It doesn't even have 3 4K monitor support!

^This is a much better option if you want to play games on the go! And it only weighs half a tonne, is as thick as a brick and costs only a small loan of million dollars.



Even Kojima likes it lol

Nintendo fans are so ignorant! Gosh...



After the Wii I swore to never count Nintendo out. I won't count out the Switch until it looks dead in the water. My Hypothesis is that we see the Switch overtake the Xbox One

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

Hmm sure, watching Interstellar on a phone or in 70mm IMAX, same experience.
