    I gues on earth.
    1 year of leaks and at the end it was actually true. wow.

    Also, can't believe that they removed "switch" from the Switch.
    Also also, why did they remove HD rumble? Was it really that hard to fit it in? (at least 1 center piece)

    So... Nintendo has a winning formula and a unique console that everyone loves to pieces, and they... turn their back on what makes it unique? Why didn't they release a console upgrade that leant into the reason we're buying these damn consoles?! Instead we get this thing that will split the market, because Nintendo can't help themselves, ever since the DSi (arguably earlier) they've been doing these stupid "upgrades" with new features that nobody develops for, or even worse, reduces the market for the original, neutering the incredible concepts and designs that could have taken advantage of the unique system.

    And again, it's because of fucking Pokemon. X & Y came with a 2DS that rapidly reduced the number of 3D-focussed games on the 3DS, and now... This. They've learned nothing.

    ...Aaand that's a big downside, at least for me. I know I'm technically not in the target audience but I mainly play my Switch docked, so having no dock support is a bummer - especially considering I'd be fine with pretty much everything else they've removed or changed =/

    It's clear that Nintendo creates gimmicks to lure in early buyers, then when everyone's comfortable, they shit out a cookie cutter design, touting all the GAMES that the early adopters got made by investing in the console. People buy the cheaper, less interesting console, developers abandon the older, more unique design and its features for the big blue ocean, and we get another console, a shittier console than the competition. Because, of course, what Nintendo needed the year before next gen Sony and Microsoft consoles hit is to be more generic.

    They very most likely won't include a firmware compatible with Déjà Vu

    ive gone through 3 left joy cons during the first year, im sick of buying replacements.

    but nice idea nintendo, now how the fuck are people going to play multiplayer games, like mario kart, mario bros, you know this whole bullshit concept that you use in all your marketing that gaming is fun together, unless the joycons can be removed then youve just fucked over majoirty of your marketing campaign.

    also how about games that play like shit in handheld mode and you get better control by removing the joycons.

    another bullshit idea by failtendo, they should look more at improving the system hardware to bring better performance rather than cutting costs, but hey its nintendo.

    Interesting news. It's always nice to see new hardware, but I'm not interested in a cheaper model. I'm more interested in a more powerful model. Gimme some "Super Switch".

    Yep, sorry. Didn't get that far into the video. But the notch, why would it be there if it can't be docked?

    Kind of what I'm thinking, especially considering they've had 8.0.0 out for three months.
