    Ask about any mobile games port like super mario run.
    Ask them about a camera or something.
    Ask them more about the mobile app thingy for the smartphone connection and features.
    Oh and for the love of god, ask them if their WEB BROWSER is gonna be good, with video support in flash maybe. (Probably not)

    Ask if it will have 5GHZ AC connection, or support mobile data from some phone plan service or whatever nonsense.

    These are very important questions i honestly wanna know. THE BROWSER BEING MOST PRIORITY. :)

    ask why in the world they would allow you guys, who come from a website that openly advocates stealing money from nintendo, get near to this new console

    I'm wondering if the Switch version of Zelda will get a higher spec or if it will be exactly the same version than the WiiU.

    I'm also wondering how we could play games which require the screen on the gamepad when playing from TV. Does the switch pad has a touch pad too? But no screen = no map or menu when playing zelda.
    maybe it was revealed in yesterday presentation, I will have to watch it.

    Oh, and maybe a general game's price range?
    please, don't increase them again like on each new console gen. it might end 80-100$ per game u_u

    You only have to pay 30€ reserving deposit on GameStop?

    Hell! No! Wait! A couple of days at least, I should wait perhaps until February!
