yeah, also all the negative opinions are common when it comes to Nintendo. If this was unveiled by other company would be the sickest handheld ever.

If Sony released this as a Playstation 4 ... uh, you can bet some hell would break loose, lol. 

This is basically Nintendo going portable only with a side option for TV play. 

if this was the psp 3 people would be sucking sony's dick. Sorry for the raw language <3

If they can bring out a decent launch and have games released for it constantly then I can see it doing good. The integrated library ensures less droughts. Let us see if Nintendo can deliver.



I really liked the concept.

It's impressive for a portable yes. 

For a console, it's fairly mediocre. 

It depends I guess on what system you want. 



I think it'll be more successful than the WiiU... depends what you mean by "successful", I don't think it will outsell the 3ds.

mediocre why?  I saw that dude playing skyrim remastered, you need some power to run that. Mario looks clean and fresh, we don't have official specs and we don't have the list of games (the most important thing) so mediocre why? 



I'm going to guess they will at least do as well as the 3DS maybe even better if they don't do the first year of the 3DS.

lack of smart thinking.

Try playing Fire Emblem on hard mode.



so i have to guess on the price but with my guess in mind:


it should do well in japan. i think it will "flop" in the west. it will certainly outsell the wiiU globally but i think it will sell less than the 3DS but probably not by leaps and bounds. 50 million with japan making a large percentage of those sales is my guess.



I really like it myself, but considering Nintendo's history with third parties, I don't think it's going to enjoy much more than moderate success. I really hope it has good third-party support though.
