    Why do you want to know?
    I saw a mockup of it that looked really nice (well, back during the NX hype days.. aka a week ago.. but still) and I'm curious to see what they came up with this time.

    yep. and for the love off all that is holy. They need to drop the 3ds/wii/wiiu OS.

    Yeah so do I. Hopefully it will be decent for both aspects. Likewise I want to know what it is based on as hopefully it will be in the BSD family.

    Probably something like a Tegra Jetson TK1 board running a custom Nintendo freeBSD based OS. Instead with a more powerful Maxwell based SoC.

    Well, Nvidia apparently helped them out a bit with the OS, according the Nvidia press release, so maybe there's some elements of the SHIELD in there.

    I've not seen the Shield OS, but that sounds interesting.

    I was thinking about the switch. It seems that they took concepts from many different gaming consoles, I think the three most obvious ones are the shield, the xbox, and the ps vita. The shield since its a tablet, the xbox since the controller is similar, and the ps vita due to its similar design and portability(also could be the ds but the vita looks closer to me).

    Interesting, the physical Switch design looks appealing but a little... odd? to me. It kind of looks like a fan-made mockup, but it's real. Pretty weird.

    Yeah, almost, perhaps they intend to get a reaction and then work some more on it.

    I think the OS really depends on wether it has a touch screen or not.

    Lol sorry didn't mean to sound rude, but the loadiine styled loader just doesn't seem like it would be something the switch would use. I feel like they might try to make it more like the Xbox one's/ps4's, but of course in their own Nintendo style.
    As for the signature, *updates signature*
