Lyte, I am saying this is bad because in the very pitch/ first look video they showed a bunch of 360 games and Wii U games (Wii U = 360 when it comes to power).

Why didn't they show PS4/ XB ports? Hell, they got FROM SOFTWARE on the supporters poster, why not show Dark Souls 3 port?

A bunch of 360/ Wii U games + the occasional new Mario is not very good for a hardware reveal.

This should cost $249 TOPS with 2 bundled games. $199 barebones.

It would fly off the shelves then.

I thought Wii U launched at $299 and is $250 now?  My memory is foggy when it comes to Nintendo products since I don't pay much attention.

I think $250 is possible if they want this thing to take off.  $300 is probably expected.  At $400 I'd expect this to bomb hard.
IIRC Wii U was 350 for 32gb and 300 for 8gb, its 250 now.

i like how it looks but the portable aspect looks iffy since its huge and those controllers seem small when they are detached.

Interested in the price as i could see this being 400 or maybe they go crazy and be 350.

Three hundo at launch. Choose between joy or pro + joy bundle. Bundle with party games meant for both full controller support and for breakout controller. Will gain more traction with mainstream as opposed to Wii U. Battery will be shit, angering people who wanted portable successor will be mad. Publishers posting shit like puzzles and dragons and mobile/portable games will be mad. Nintendo will have to make new revision over a year in. Pokemon Switch will have more social features. EO and P5Q to follow in announcements around launch. Monster Hunter is going to be pretty dope, no loading screens between regions of maps.

The most important thing to me about this isn't the controller or hardware.  It's the fact that Nintendo is focusing all dev resources to it instead of two separate pillars.  That at the very least means more quality Nintendo games without having to buy two systems.

You put he NEXT Pokémon on this along with Monster Hunter and Mario Kart and I think you have a system that more people want to buy.

Off-topic, but have you seen the GPD-Win yet?  3DS XL-sized PC running Windows 10.  Emulators run great and it can run even some recent PC games pretty decently.  Only $330.  Ordered one from Geekbuying.  Someone even got Doom 2016 running at 20-30 FPS on it.  :lol





Here it is running Fallout 4:

Well, details are yet to be revealed, but Nintendo generally hasn't been stupid enough to use their own overpriced storage solutions and has opted for SD Cards and the like, and typically prices their products lower than Sony.  Plus it's getting big-name titles like Zelda and Mario out of the gate.  Not stripped-down gimmicky ports...the actual full-on 'console' games.

But while I'm impressed with this teaser...it's just that- a teaser.  Need more info.

The tiny detachable controllers are a non-issue. Honestly, how often will you actually remove them to play? You'll be playing this like any other handheld or using the pro controller at home.

In the beginning it was a lot of stripped-down ports and nothing big from Sony themselves.  It took a couple of years before Killzone Mercenary showed up.

Memory card prices dont matter.

Do you not remember the Vita's proprietary memory card pricing?  :doge

No one actually wants to take a giant console on the go to play games.

Good thing this isn't a giant console, then.  But the uphill battle for Nintendo is trying to get the people carrying around tablets to put those down in favor of the Switch.  I don't see that happening.

Yeah, pretty much seems to be more a novelty thing.  Good for kids though.  Like if you went on a trip, you could have two kids playing on one system instead of needing to buy them their own.

Vita got "big named" shit at launch and over the next year. Uncharted, assassins, whatev. Then they stopped because it didn't move hardware and no one actually wanted them.

It was a machine without an audience. Same for the Wii U, and the switch most likely

I wasn't expecting Nintendo to just give up on dual screen gaming, for some reason I thought the home-style play would essentially function like a Wii U gamepad. Obviously not the case.

And they're also seemingly straight up ditching touchscreens. Golly, that's a bit surprising to me too.

This is exactly what I was talking about earlier- it got a stripped-down, gimmicky version of Uncharted made by Sony Bend (that also had major control issues) and Ass Crud Liberation was another stripped-down "portable" game that had performance issues.

The Switch is not doing this.

We don't know that yet.  What is clear is that the games are not using touch functionality, which makes sense since you can dock the system.

Although I guess if they went with a non-touch screen, the cost would be cheaper.  But would that make it a lot cheaper?

Most adults I know own multiple gaming consoles.  Let's stop pretending that a console is going to be the one-all be-all platform a person owns unless you're a teenager.

This addresses an itch that I think most gamers who don't take this shit super seriously will want to scratch – third party games or not.

No?  The only thing that the Wii U had going for it was Nintendo's rare title releases.  The controller itself was cool but made no sense if you could only use it within 5 ft of your own TV.

This is a fully portable home console with controls that can be either traditional or used ala the Wii remote.  I think that's a much more interesting buy than a tethered tablet controller.

That screen is going to get so scratched up. The multiplayer via multiple machines is a cool/smart thing. $300 for the full kit or fuck the hell off. Proc ontroller separately for $50 to 60 is ..acceptable but will still get an eyeroll if you don't put one in the box.

Why would people want this in the first place?  Nintendo titles are attractive for a lot of people but not enough to sway CoD or FIFA players from their dedication to the service of their choice (Live or PSN).  We all know even if Nintendo offered an amazingly powerful system, they'd royally fuck up networking, online, and the OS.

Nintendo is strong at creating word-of-mouth buzz even if the gimmick isn't a lasting one. I would rather they focus on creating interesting shit than sinking money into a powerhouse that they know wouldn't sell anything.
