The deal with NVidea is 10 years, and likely they're going to stick to the Switch platform and iterations of it. It would be stupid of them to make such a deal, go with such a versatile and scalable architecture if they weren't going to continue with it in a similar way that Samsung does Android and Apple does iOS.

We might see a Switch Mini as early as late next year alongside Pokemon. We could see a Switch XL after that which would have a bigger screen and focus more on non-handheld play... that means it could have an open dock, and additional features on the dock. But it's more than likely NVidea will keep updating the chipsets and work with Nintendo to advance the platform in an iterative manner.

 

Also, what's Nine Inch Nails have to do with it? =D

These seem like opposing ideas.  Since the screen is used for handheld play, why would an XL with a larger screen be more focused on non-handheld play?  I understand that a larger screen would be bulky and thus less ideal for portable, but the screen's sole purpose is for off-tv use and thus handheld-centric.

Two of the most haunting and goose bump inducing tracks I've ever heard!

Thanks man, im a huge fan of anything involving Trent Reznor, Chino Moreno or Maynard James Keenan

Very welcome...Best thing about this thread is me myself not realising NIN had a new EP out that I had missed! :)

Oh, I love that this thread become a Nine Inch Nails thread. I love their latest EP, by the way.

I haven't heard that one myself. I listened to basically everything up to Year Zero. I'd say the NIN project is a bit inconsistent in quality, but I have heard the recent eps are good

Also extremely inconsistent with pacing, his first 4 album had like 5-6 years between each release then he had 4 albums between 2005 and 2008.

Yep. I'm pretty sure The Fragile was supposed to release way sooner than it did. Like two years after The Downward Spiral. But Trent was battling with suicidal depression and writer's block. I think he ended up scrapping a lot of songs and making new ones. I think that's what i remember reading anyways.

It'll be about 5 years unless Kimishima changes the mindset around the company significantly. We've seen that cycle for over 30 years: you need to keep bringing in something fresh or the competition will do it for you.

@NIN conversation, good band, don't have much to add. :)

You stopped reading my post too soon and missed the rest of the description about docking. I know I’m boring, but I can’t be THAT boring! =P

Portable and handheld are two different things. A laptop or iPad Pro is portable, but not handheld. You sit/dock them and then have your interface hardware laying in front of you or separately handheld (like a gaming controller or remote controller).

The current model of Switch is kind of in that realm where it is small enough to act as a handheld, but also big enough to act as a non-handheld portable system. A smaller Switch would be more ideal as a handheld (but less ideal as a non-handheld), and a larger one would be more ideal as a non-handheld portable (but again, less ideal as a handheld). In addition, bigger means more space for cooling systems, batteries, and therefore more power consuming chipsets.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

It could be anytime. They know the Switch train cannot go on forever unless they have an awesome year next year with games. Look for another classic system to come out next year for sure. Eventually a more robust NES classic too.
