Your thoughts on the Next Ninty Console

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Your thoughts on the Next Ninty Console

Just give me a Switch Phone. Everything else about the Switch is perfect.

A Switch Phone with a Smaller Form Factor, a Solid State Battery, and a 7nm revision of the Terga for better Efficiency, Battery draw, and Heat.

A 7nm Terga and a Solid State Battery should be enough for 24 hours of Gaming, or a week of Youtube.

Make it pocketable, and it would be the perfect Mobile Gaming device.

I wouldalso like to see a Stand alone VR unit on the same platform as Switch, and an upgraded Switch Hybrid/Tablet.

The next Switch Tablet upgrade (the Pro/X version of the current model), should have an edge to edge screen, making it the same size as the current model, but with more screen space. Through in a 7nm Tegra with twice the CPU and GPU power, double the RAM and Bandwidth, and throw in a Solid State Battery, and you have a perfect Switch upgrade.

Honestly a Switch upgrade should be able to more than double the Switch in power since it would be going from 20nm to 7nm. It would be more in line with the jump from PS4 to PS5, than PS4 to PS4 Pro.

That's what I want.

And, like Soundwave said, get over generations. Switch should be the platform going forward. Just build on it from here on out. It should be the foundation of all products going forward. Give people options and let them upgrade at their own pace. After 6 years drop support for the OG Switch on new titles. Follow the winning fomula. If Nintendo does this, and releases a Switch Phone they will take over the mobile market in Japan. Switch could sell 50M+ in Japan alone.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I think we will see a mid-gen refresh for the current Switch similar to the New 3DS, dropping the price of the current model.
It probably wont do 4k, but will have better battery life, manage more constitent framerates and higher resolutions across the board and give a little bit more headroom for ports.
It would probably get a few exclusives, but nothing world shattering, again much like the the New3DS.

I don't think Nintendo is dropping the hybrid Idea anytime soon, so I'd expect a proper successor to the Switch to arrive 2023/2024 and retain a similar formfactor.
Better screen and chip, possibly native 4k support, wich by 2024 should be much more widespread. We will see what kind of chip it will have, but mobile chipsets are becoming insanely powerful, so if Nvidia actually develops a custom chip, optimized for the Switch 2 we might see a decent generational leap, even over the mid-gen refresh.

If they retain backwards conpatibility, they can still drop the current Switch model further in price and make it an ultra budget machine.

They shouldn't make one until 2023-2024 at earliest. When they do, just make it Switch 2. Better hardware, a few new features, still compatible with old games and controllers, done.

Of course, it's Nintendo, so they won't do that.

Edit: also, honestly I hope they don't go 4K. 1080p is absolutely fine enough in my opinion, and by not upgrading the resolution it means you can have better graphics without nearly as much power - never mind the storage issue.

Yeah, that's exactly what they've done with the Wii and then the Wii U (backwards compatibility, including controllers and a few new features).

Swiitch U.

400 million units sold confirmed.



One thing for sure, we will never see another full fledged home console from Nintendo.

I don't think they should do another console this time..

I believe they should just carry on evolving the Switch indefinitely, much like a smartphone.

I mean, what could they possibly do next that would break the Switch ecosystem? A brain controller?!?!?



Need it to be a hybrid and sold starting 2022

Resolution itself has absolutely no affect on storage.
PC games from 20 years ago like Half Life 1 can fit on a CD, yet run at 4k.

Everything of mine is 1440P or better these days, rather not make a step backwards, the poor resolution display on the Switch is what is ultimately holding me back from making a snap purchase.

And just because the higher resolution is available, doesn't mean developers are obligated to use it either. - Many Switch games are under 720P.

Resolution doesn't have an effect on storage, but 4K textures do, and heavily so. You know they'll be doing 4K textures if they push 4k, so, there.

720p point is exactly what I'm trying to say. By keeping 1080p as the cap on a more powerful system, it is likely that an increasingly vast majority of the games do run at 1080p while boasting better graphics than they would if they had to render at 4K with 4K textures.

Eh... the Wii U was nothing like the Wii, not at all. It had the software/hardware backwards compatibility but was overall a much different product. Had a weird new controller no one understood, an incredibly slow OS that was far worse than the Wii's, and was honestly garbage at doing what the Wii did best - local multiplayer.



Sadly, it will be switch 2.



If Switch keeeps on selling we will see an improved Switch in one or two years and either another hybrid or streaming only in 2023-2025.
