Touch screen is in too if the report about battery is to be believed.  Dock also improves processing so it should be clocking the system regularly when docked.

Probably dowclocks when not docked to save power, also only needs to output 720p then

Full power draw when docked and booatrd cpu/gpu to output in 1080p

Dunno why people are upset about 3 hours, that really cant be any different

3 hours is pretty rough.  I already get annoyed with Vita/3DS 4-5 hours life in high use game mode when I'm traveling.  I mean it's not dealbreaker, but it basically means it's not that useful as a portable system which considering it's going to succeed and kill of the 3DS is kinda of an issue...maybe.

Honestly, I don't know how this is going to work out for Nintendo in Japan.  Between being too big and short battery, in a country where consoles are mostly dead and handheld is preferred because of the usefulness in society, if Japanese kids outright reject Switch as a handheld and it sells more on par with console sales, then Japan will be left with no handheld on the market in a market that can still support a dedicated handheld.

In that situation, if I had to make bets, I'd actually bet the 3ds/Vita stick around and keep getting some level of support as the only handhelds on the market.

Another thought, which I think is actually more likely is that Nintendo releases a separate portable only version of Switch that's like 3DS or at least 3DS XL sized.  If it outputs at a lower resolution, maybe it can be weaker and smaller but still run the same games.

I mean originally I thought Nintendo was going to make 2 separate products that run the same OS like iphone / ipad.  Home console NX and portable NX, both run the same games (so it still fixes the Nintendo 1st party spread out between two systems issue).  You can share saves/games between the two, but they're separate hardware tailored towards the needs of each, with the console being more console-like and the portable being more 3DS/Vita like.  That way they'd capture the handheld successor market in Japan and the console market hopefully in the west.  The way they went with Switch seems more suited to the western world at the expense of possibly giving up Japan like how Sony has moved towards.

Could definitely see something like that happening a year or two down the road.

So Nintendo hasn't put shit all out in the last few years for WiiU, resulting in people assuming the next console would have an onslaught of software....and now we learn just about everything at launch will be a port.

The 3DS' battery is not much better  :doge

Yep, the world needs that battery life revolution, because nothing fucking lasts anymore.  I'm playing Zero's Last Reward on Vita and it's constantly running out of battery, I'm playing fricken FF Theaterhythm Curtain Call on my 3DS XL and it goes down to flashing red if I don't plug it in every couple of days just from minor play.  My PS4 controllers barely make it through one night's rpg session without running out and I have to charge them.  My phone barely makes it through a day without running out, my ipad needs charging every 2-3 days (although to be fair, compared to everything else, the ipad's battery is fantastic).

Where is our battery revolution?  :(

Isn't the Wii U Gamepad like 2 1/2 hours or some shit? I've never played the Wii U long enough to run it down, but that's what I herd.

I can't comment on this because I never play either of my Wii Us :(

They are becoming much more common.  I have quite a few >32gb games installed on my hard drive right now:

DOOM (65gb)
GTA V (69gb)
XCOM 2 (37gb)
WWE 2K16 (45gb)
Forza Horizon 3 (49gb)
Gears of War 4 (74gb)
Witcher 3 (49gb)

My Witcher 3 install includes all the DLC and GOTY patch (which was like 12gb in itself).  Honestly Doom and Gears 4 are more eyebrow raising.

NBA 2K17 is 68.43 GB according to Steam.

Skyrim is only 14GB though. With the high resolution textures.

Even Ghosts, Advanced Warfare and Black Ops III's multiplayer only are all over 32 GB. AW's is 51 GB. Though (based on a casual glance at the maps of every CoD ever) a lot of the assets are reused for both single and multiplayer so total sizes probably aren't significantly bigger.

Titanfall 1 is 63GB. BF4 Complete (or "Platinum" I guess) is 65GB, BF:Hardline with the two expansions they gave for free is 58GB. BF3 Complete is 34GB.

Battlefield 4 with all the DLC is pushing that (it was ~7-12gig at launch), the newest one is 40gigs without the DLC so far. So... yeah. "Next-gen" stuff has blown the roof off reasonable download sizes for slower connections and small drives won't cut it if you are playing 2-5 games.

Nintendo designs hardware for Nintendo games.  As long as they expect Moar New Super Mario Bros to be a few gigabytes, they don't really care.  Besides you won't get anything like Doom 4 or Forza Horizon 3 on this piece of crap, it's going to be the usual Nintendo shit, some half assed third party software, and that's it.  Just like the Wii U and the latter days of the Wii when the hardware sales bubble burst.

The ones for the 3DS can go up to 8GB.

But SanDisk is one of the partners and they make USB flash drives* that are the smaller and hold up to 128GB for under $30. So 32GB and maybe even 64GB could be plausible? I mean, Zelda has to fit right and the Wii U discs are 25GB.

32GB seems about right for the Switch, maybe more than that for certain games. Going any lower would definitely lead to space issues, since most Switch games will be at least as big as Wii U games.

They should bump it to 64, and include some large ssd in the dock. Because if that thing really is just for output/charging, that's an awful waste of space for an hdmi out / AC in solution.

The real killer for me is the "no new official info before 2017", it doesn't project confidence in the least. 6 months to start hyping (3rd party) upcoming games doesn't seem egregious, gives the impression they actually have nothing to show (on top of showing the not especially current Skyrim and not naming any of the games displayed on the video). The video also didn't hint at any sort of touch screen, multimedia apps or online functionality ? Given it's Nintendo, I'm inclined to believe the worst and that they'll go cheap.

Its safe to assume they wont deliver on the basics people expect from tablets in 2017 as Nintendo is a company a decade behind the tech and software curve at least.

Look at how XBL was in 2006 and how Nintendos online is today, its not even on that level...

Nintendo says they're not selling hardware at a loss with the Switch.  It's going to be pretty barren of features unless they want to charge $400 for it.
