DS is among it. And my PSP Go lasts 8hrs. Well, dunno about reg models. My only evidence is my PSP Go lasts an 8hr flight it dies at the end of the flight unfortunately

So you talk about shit handhelds, but you like the PSP Go. This adds a lot more context.

It's much better than the PSP standard models. Standard models feel cheap as they age, especially the left D-pad. PSP Go feels nice. However, the D-pad placement is awful. PSP Go is useless for platformers

You do realize the battery life is pretty similar to the 3DS right? Lol... The battery life ranges from 3 to 6 hours depending on the game. What handheld ever got at least 8 hours of playtime without a charge? That's completely unrealistic lmao. No Nintendo handheld ever had such a long battery life. 3-6  hours is plenty, I've taken the console with me plenty of times and I've never ran out of charge before I could plug it in somewhere. 

And the PS4 and PC don't play Switch games on your TV, so that point is moot as well. 

Your expectations are completely unrealistic. There's no way Nintendo could cram a battery strong enough into the Nintendo Switch, so that it would last 8 hours... The thing would have to be incredibly big to fit a battery that powerful. 

Weak console? Have you even played any Switch games yet? I doubt it. 

You are basically StarOcean's evil counterpart. Mind you, Star Ocean is evil as well.

All Nintendo handhelds prior to the 3DS had battery life of at least eight hours.

I had a Gameboy and Gameboy Advance, I don't remember the battery life being that long... That said, having to constantly buy batteries was the worst thing ever, so I'll gladly take a smaller battery life for something I can charge with a charger. I just wished the Switch charger was longer, so I could play it comfortably on the couch while it's charging. 

The fact that I can't remember the battery life of the Gameboy makes it all the more irrelevant to me. Who plays for 8 hours straight anyway?

Ever heard of rechargeable batteries? No need to buy new batteries.

The Switch is compatible with USB-C cables, so buy a longer cable or an extension.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Doesnt hurt to have more games



I would prefer just having new games, but if this helps boost sales and confidence for 3rd party devs on the Switch, then that's good too

The Switch is not Backwards Compatible with any past Nintendo home consoles or handhelds. And how the last Nintendo handheld could not handle these powerful games.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Any old games from the past are always welcome to portable machines with an external display support.

There is no but.

It depends on who you're asking. If you ask Wii U owners, not so much, since they've likely played any games considered for a port. Non Wii U owners, I definitely think so. It'd definitely allow them to play some of the best titles from the system without having to buy it.

As for the fear of there being more ports than new games, Nintendo's releasing a fair amount of new games as well, so there will be something to play for both new and existing owners.

While I do have a Wii U myself. The last time I played an actual Wii U game was Xenoblade Chronicles X well over a year ago, unless you include Wii and VC games.

I want everything on Switch. The sooner I can unplug Wii U permanently, the better. I do not intend to buy anything new on it, but I would buy Wii U games I don't have on Switch... and I would re-buy an updated XCX and a few others. XCX's big problem is the tiny UI, and it doesn't need to be that way, it needs to be polished.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Some of the games he showed off makes me wish that Nintendo are subbed to digital foundry and see the likes this video has :D Metroid Prime and Pikmin trilogies would be a license to print money for relatively low amounts of work imo.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
