What do you want in a Switch 2?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What do you want in a Switch 2?

I never understood why people think that a portable will be as powerful as x system... it's just not going to happen.

As for the switch 2... I'd of course like a jump in power as well. But, I differ for the rest than everyone. I see the switch's screen as an excellent one. I'd be more than happy to keep the screen and have the extra power go into games in every other area ASIDE from resolution.

Then I'd love proper chat system, better layout for the eshop, folders on the home screen, and custom backgrounds too.

I would also love it if Nintendo themselves had more variety for joycons outside of simple colors. I have the hori split pad pro and I absolutely love it. I'd love to see Nintendo do this too. A gamecube split pad? Sign me up. Theres a huge market there, I think.



Achievements dammit!

I think maybe you can get a Switch 2, thats around where the Base PS4 is (when docked).
That could probably be possible in 2021.

That would mean Switch 1 -> Switch 2, is a jump of x3-4 times in terms of power.

My, I can't even begin here. For starters, we're talking about something coming 3 years from now. Today's technology being irrelevant. A system like the switch could have released last month while already being more powerful than a ps4. And no, the gap between the switch and ps4 isn't 3-4x, more like 2-2.25.

What chipset is that? I'm genuinely asking.  I dont keep up on those things much. That's pretty crazy for a portable chipset to be equal to or above a ps4 in power, and awesome. But I imagine that it would be far too expensive to put into a Nintendo handheld. Hopefully in 3 years though....



-1080p screen
-Specs somewhere in the XB1-PS4 range for $300, 5G model for $50 more
-Achievements
-Full backwards compatibility with Switch games
-Better online functionality
-Better app support (Switch 1 still doesn't have Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ or a web browser!)
-Better Quality Assurance on the analog sticks

-5G
-VR/AR
-Achievments/Trophies
-Calling/Texting/Messaging/Voice Chat
-Wider App Support

Those are the only things holding the Switch back for me.



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.

- Aside from BotW, every single game I own it digital. I want backwards compatibility.

- Better, more comfortable default Joy Cons.

- Bluetooth support (no brainer).

That's about it. Aside from the regular stuff we get with new generations like graphical improvements and things of that nature, I think the current route Nintendo is taking is perfect.

Power-wise I'm thinking PS4 Pro level power. 1080p screen. 4k capable when docked. Hopefully a small enough gap from the other next gen systems to get more support from 3rd party graphically downgraded but still good AAA games than Switch.

Well we aren't talking about today's technology, we're talking about a release in over 3 years from now. A Switch 2 released in 2023 I would expect to at least be more powerful than the base PS4. Main reason I would want Nintendo to target something around PS4 Pro level is so that Switch 2 could do a better job of getting third parties to port their AAA games over to Switch 2, obviously they'd still be graphically downgraded, but still close enough in power to be running well and looking great on Switch 2.

You don't understand why people compare the power of different systems? Why don't you understand that? Seems pretty natural to compare the power of different systems. Why can a portable system not be as powerful as a home console? Pretty sure Switch is more powerful than every home console ever made other than PS4 and XboxOne. Obviously portable systems can be as powerful as older home consoles. Portables don't exist as some inferior technology that can never be as powerful as any home console.

I can agree that Switch 2 doesn't necessarily need a screen upgrade, I mean do you REALLY need more than 720p on that small of a screen? Probably not. I think certainly at like 1080p on that size there is no reason to ever go above that. I just feel like lots of people will complain if the screen doesn't get upgraded to 1080p like 6 years later. If its a cost matter I'd certainly rather get a little more power rather than an upgraded screen. I think it should do 4k in docked mode though cuz by then 4k will probably be fairly standard for new TVs.

Interesting idea about different joycon splits, though because the joycons have to split into two separate controllers I feel like the current SNES-style design is the only one that really works. Like a gamecube joycon split wouldn't work at all when you actually split them.



Switch 2 needs ability to stream on mixer and youtube for the poor so they dont have to buy extra's just like ps4 which you can actually stream on youtube or twitch using just your console and share button, most if not 99 percent of my friends list on xbox one dont stream or upload on youtube , not sure about mixer, but ps4 friends are ultra active uploading there game sessions on youtube / twitch , weird feeling .I would so much enjoy a casual gamer or friends on switch streaming mario kart instead of a big youtuber nintendo fan who has extra money to afford capture card to streamn on twitch
