Yeah this thing is going to be a Nintendo machine for Nintendo games. As usual it's a blessing and a curse for Nintendo.

The sight of nintards getting excited over Skyrim was a sight to behold, Yeah it's the remastered version but it's a half hearted effort as usual put that game out at launch while the Xbox One and PS4 versions, which launch next week, will be cheaper and the Switch version full price. See it flop, don't port anything else to the Switch.

Slowly drain the Switch of big western third party support.

nvidia basically confirmed it's a Tegra spin-off like a year ago or something, that's not too terrible considering how long Nintendo held onto the Gekko which were the source of most complaints about the WiiU

plus what do people expect will fit in that tablet without it burning through the casing?

the hardware can't be in the "console" like the WiiU and you be able to take the dang thing on an airplane

Why the whole dock thing though, why not just a lilttle handheld (ds size) that can stream games to the telly through a dongle?

Like Airplay or something,  you could use a bluetooth controller too at home.

this whole dock clickety thing feels odd

getting excited over a 6 month delayed remaster of a decade old game, just shows how crazy starved nintendo fans seem to be, quite contrary to Brandnews "most adults I know own multiple consoles"

That's a non story

edit: to clarify, not even Nintendo has officially released details on their games for the Switch.  I doubt Nintendo gave the go ahead to any dev, even of dev featured in the teaser video, to release official details about their plans.  I'd wager official PR starts appearing for this sometime next week.

Also, based on Laura Kate Dale and Emily Rogers' reporting, the device is using a Pascal chip and will be under clocked when the device is out of the dock.  Once placed in the dock, there is apparently additional processing that happens.

"The dock is not the main console unit of Nintendo Switch. The main unit of Nintendo Switch is the unit that has the LCD screen, which the two Joy-Con controllers can be attached to and detached from. The main function of the Nintendo Switch Dock is to provide an output to the TV, as well as charging and providing power to the system."

While Bethesda's much beloved Skyrim was clearly shown during Nintendo's Switch reveal video, the publisher told us today that it's not officially confirming the game just yet. "We're happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future," a spokesperson said.

That reveal was a 4mins long video remake of this:




Yes, we get it, you can take the screen with you and play like a handheld. No need to show it 15 times in different scenarios.

Other than that, a bunch of ports (and a few looking suspiciously like concepts) and zero details as usual. And it launches in 5 months.

Actually was just pointing it out because I found the fact interesting.  Not a big fan of 3d and didn't use it when it hurt performance or in dark areas because of the ghosting, but in general at least 3d never did any harm and made any games worse like motion or touch controls have.

Watched the video : take care of your dog asshole ! :maf

Otherwise I don't know... I think this thing needs a decent online (OS) and some video streaming capacities. Curious about the carts they use as well ?

The design is OK and I like that it is rather compact. It is also cool that Nintendo is still focused on offerint solutions for local multiplayer.

People are going to buy three or four attachments, use them for the five or six games that come out in a year on Nintendo consoles, and throw all the shit in the closet or behind the TV. People will reminisce about Mario and Zelda, then Nintendo will move onto another dumb gimmick.

Developers can barely give a shit about Kinect, PS move, VR, tons of other gimmicky attempts of shit, they're not going to design a game around peripherals you attach to a Nvidia shield.

This is pointless innovation for the sake of relevancy, but it won't sell well. Basically Nintendo's MO at this point.

3 hour battery life is  :fbm

But I suppose that's expected with a powerful gaming machine on the go these days.  Old Shields only get around 4 hours - iPad Air 2's doing heavy gaming only lasts around 4.

Maybe battery improves in the retail unit as opposed to the dev kit, but eh.

Thinking about it though, I never play a portable console more than 2-4 hours at a time when traveling.  But this certainly doesn't bode well for anyone wanting to toss this at their kids to shut up for a trip.

Quote from: Nostradamus
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.

 Nostradamus has spoken.
