    Though ya gotta admit the idea of the switch is pretty rad, right, ya can slip the controllers on and hold/play or ya can slip em off and do local coop/vs anywhere, smash bros will be an instant buy for me if/when it comes out, trust me, the a single joycon by itself will be way better then a wii mote by itself *shiver* ...the wii mote for smash is scary just to think about

    That is huge. I linked your post in the OP to not give people the wrong idea.

    I mean, I think it a good idea and I feel like it is doing well.

    Still, I think the dock thing should be revised. I wish they come out with a Switch or Joy Con that has a D pad instead. Also feel that the Joy Con could have been just a little bit thicker. Funny enough, I feel like the Joy Con by themselves are more comfortable than the included grip.

    This contrary to the quote from Nvidia that engadget gave in their news post

    I'm not sure where this quote is coming from but it may just be a translation error.

    Nope. Translated it says
    FEATURED NINTENDO CLASSIC GAMES,
    GAMESTREAM STREAMING GAMES,
    POPULAR GAMES, ALL IN SHIELD

    note that they are separated by commas

    The only hard evidence I have found is that the game description says that the game will go up to 1080p. Which either means dynamic scaling or just streaming resolution.

    It's part of a list of services, not a description of the games

    Oh well, at the very least, this screenshot indicates an actual port:

    DA1AF321-74DC-4D5D-9193-BC3BEF023ECD.jpeg

    Note the face buttons. It it were streaming the Gamecube/Wii version, those face buttons wouldn’t have been there.

    Sigh, will update the OP again.

    I know we've shifted back on topic a little bit so I'm sorry but I just have to say it's really weird to shit on the Switch for "inferior" graphics then turn around and reminiscence about much older systems with even lower quality graphics. If graphics matter that much to you then it follows that you should automatically despise older games because the graphics are not comparable to the latest and greatest. Unless graphics don't matter nearly as much as whether you had fun playing the game?

    It could be a PC PORT
    It could be an Android port
    It could be an emulator with some asset replacement

    The only thing that looks like a fact is that it's listed under GEFORCE NOW.
    Until that's proven wrong the rest doesn't matter, fact is if it's in GEFORCE NOW it's streaming.

    Unless it was mis-classified of course, mistakes happen

    Wow, chill out everyone that got fired up. I hate to break it to you all but it's just video games. At very best, winning the argument could get one person to buy an nvidia shield, which doesn't affect you at all. Just remember that your opinions probably don't matter to whoever started this argument (I forget who)

    You can keep repeating yourself that it's a list of services, fact is they are listed under geforce-now

    Is there a way to install the chinese app store or Geforce Now app on the regular Shield TV?

    I don't think anyone has ever really wanted the Chinese apps before, so probably not at the moment. But I wouldn't be surprised if it does happen, when these launch.

    Although if it is through GeForce Now, I wouldn't be surprised if you'll need a China-based VPN to stream games as well.
