    It depends on the games, from a PC gamers point of view you will certainly get many games on an Nintendo platform you'll not get on the PC until emulation is eventually possible.

    Even then the Switch is about the experience of playing your games any time, anywhere, even where it's only possible to do so on battery power. So it's certainly a different experience than traditional PC gaming, even if you have a laptop / touch screen PC device like the Surface.

    I game on the PC and Consoles and i'm interested, however probably not until a Pokemon (3DS style adventure game) and Mario Kart are available.

    I agree, it depends on the games. I'm intrigued, and may get it (I have every console except Xbox One), but only if there are enough games that interest me (hence why no XBO).

    Depends on the games & price, but sure. I've always liked Nintendo more in the sense they at least try to innovate and don't copy MS/Sony.

    I always need me myself some Mario Kart, but other than that *shrugs*

    3rd party was never Nintendo forte so at the same time i'm not so much interested (and the difficulty in Nintendo games has been pretty weak lately which i don't like)

    I'll wait on the 4DS. Eventually, I'll be able to emulate the Switch.

    The switch IS the 4DS.

    PS: And if you comply about the size, sure they will release a 4DS Lite in the future.

    I have a few die hard PC masterracers who have admitted that they would be interested in a Switch. It seems to fill a void that they cant cover with a 3DS/Vita.

    Won't have 2 screens, the point about eventually being able to emulate it remains valid.

    Yes. For me, there are few exclusives that would interest me for the PS or Xbox home systems, but Nintendo is very strong in first-party games.

    I'm still considering it, mainly because there's a good chance that I'll be buying a WiiU again to play some games with friends. I really like the portability of the Switch. I think it would be neat if the Switch had some kind of Streetpass like feature for when it's in 'tablet' mode.

    I buy one Nintendo Handheld each generation while I didn't buy there console when they where relevant since the GC. So for me this is great. It stands to see if the software matches up.

    PC Master Race always worships the Nvidia God, so yes, they must accept their Lord's offering.

    PC and Nintendo co-habitate well. PC/Nintendo Master Mixed Race.
