    Thanks for clarifying. I don't own a shield but I have done a lot of research on it in the past because I was tempted to buy it.

    Nvidia is not in the business to feature custom chips unless it gets paid really well. One of the reasons you are not seeing Nvidia return in the "console" business, supposedly there making a loss on the chips supplied to Nintendo. The only thing that might be custom are some of the modes limited to a certain TDP but that has to be something which would be rather trivial.

    it will be fun to watch Nintendo receiving a takedown notice if they stole codes from the Dolphin team. some game ROMs in the eShop are stolen from file sharing site, so it's not impossible for it to happen again.

    Fake Edit:
    Turns out it's a remaster. Looking forward to the inevitable $20 fees.

    It costs RMB 68 (~$10) a pop in China. Hopefully NoA can start permanently lowering Wii game prices in the eShop.

    This is interesting and cool. Remasters instead of emulated. I feel this will bode VERY well for Gamecube & Wii games on the Switch.

    This is interesting. Nintendo could learn from this, gather data, improve on those ports. Hopefully, we'll get to see some Wii VC soon.

    This can only mean that Wii ports are a paid service that will only be available behind the paywall for Nintendo Network *speculation*

    But yeah. If I was Nintendo I would do it that way... not fun but the only way it is profitable.

    Guess there's no reason to buy a Switch now~ :P

    I believe it's actually fairly bog-standard, from what I recall. I believe very little was actually customised in the end, for better or worse.

    Just repeating Nintendo Magic isn't an argument.

    This pretty much confirms that these are ports and not emulations. The button icons on twilight princess are updated to the Nvidia shields layout.
