The Switch is here and is doing very well, and hopefully continues. Many people have said the Switch is basically Nin's new single platform that all future Nin devices will revolve around, which makes a lot of sense from a business perspective (Switch Lite, Switch, Switch XL, etc). This is Nin however, the company that loves to, and seems to go out of their way to innovate. The same company that went from the Gamecube, to Wii, to Wii U, to Switch.

How long could Nin simply upgrade Switch and possibly have add on's like a VR headset or a 4k boost dock? Will the Wii U and it's similarity to the Wii, in terms of the name, the console design, etc, deter Nin from just making another Switch? Would Nin fans be ok with nothing but Switch form factors and upgrades with minor innovations for the foreseeable future?

Even if Nin stays on the Switch path, how long before they come out with another completely different product aside from Switch? Maybe Nin will continue with a hybrid and handheld future. I for one don't see why Nin wouldn't eventually drop the DS line and create a Switch version to take it's place if they were going to create another dedicated handheld. That really doesn't seem like the typical Nin way to me though.

*NiN changed to Nin. I figure I'll also mention that I used "completely new", instead of just new, so that people wouldn't be confused with something like a new new DS handheld or N64 mini etc. That wasn't clear obviously, and neither was NiN. My bad I guess.

Probably N64 classic just around the corner.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Early 2020 i guess.It's enough time to build consumer confidence and then maybe try appeal to a more specific audience.



I love Nine Inch Nails!


Btw now that Doom has released on Switch...Trent Reznor did the OST for it, right?! /Edit it was Quake of course

I thought for a split second this thread was going to be about Trent Reznor doing something on the Switch (maybe a game soundtrack...?)

I'm a little dissappointed now....

It will be pretty hilarious seeing people trying to get used to that horrendous controller all over again

I tried to play Goldeneye 64 not so long ago, long story short: i felt like i had to left hands.

Well, beaten to it. :P

Actually the guy who did do the DOOM 2016 soundtrack had a pretty awesome process to get to a unique sound, He's had some really interesteing panels about it.

Picked up one last month in my closest. I have no clue how I played with that thing before. Did I use to have three hands?

How did I ever use that? It has three handholds. I am just baffled how I ever played Golden eye with it.

Damn! Beat me to it. If only I wasn't working on another post and had noticed this thread 15 minutes ago.
