    It probably isn't touchscreen. The console is supposed to seamlessly switch from portable to TV mode, and have the same control scheme, and there is nothing that would emulate the touch screen when it's in TV mode.

    I was referring to the thinly-veiled insult that his post implicated that people who don't like Apple are somehow intellectually impaired compared to those who do, and yes, they're the main reason I never want an Apple product. I'll stick with Android and Nintendo; this Switch is no exception, as I plan on getting one when it comes out, probably with my tax refund.

    I have a feeling people would still complain even if it was literally just Nintendo branded PS4.

    I am not 100% sure but I believe that the NBA game shown will be a part of the NBA Live series. Why? Because 2K and Visual Concepts are not listed with the other companies while EA is.

    I don't even respond to insults like that because they're low-brow and say more about the person who throws them around than about me. Me having a preference says nothing about my intellect, so I see no reason to address it. If someone thinks that me liking one platform over another makes me stupid, they're the stupid one. Besides, both iOS and Android suck in my eyes, we haven't had a good mobile OS around since Windows CE/Windows Mobile (not to be confused with the abortion that is Windows Phone) and, to a lesser extent, Symbian. Just the fact that neither OS comes with a stock file explorer and you have to download additional apps just to use features that are f*cking obvious shows the poor state of the mobile industry in terms of operating systems. Android just coincidentally sucks less, and right now there is no superior alternative available.

    Windows Phone comes with a built-in file manager :tpi:

    Guys, let's get back on topic please? This is not about mobile phones.

    From IGN:

    “We’re happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the trailer. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of Nintendo Switch. We look forward to revealing specific details at a later date.” - 2K representative

    In that case that's one feature that makes it inarguably better than both Android and iOS, because Jesus Christmas, an OS without any form of a file manager is missing an *obvious* feature. Based Microsoft, overlooked by the crowds of dullards as usual. :topkekeke:

    You're right though, this is neither the time nor the place. I don't even know how the he'll we arrived at this point in the discussion, but I assume we went there organically somehow. Welcome to GBATemp.
    I didn't know that! Based Google, how long did that take them? Does it mean that they'll stop copying Apple's shitty design choices that were making Android suck more and more for the last couple of years? Seriously though, I need to update my phone's ROM right away then, another day with ES File Browser will make me kill myself.

    Comparison between Nintendo and Apple, I believe.

    Ok, so NX is revealed as Switch.

    Couple things bother me here:

    1.Despite the fact that it's running Nintendo software, what is so unique about this? Expensive tablets can already run beautiful looking games, plus instantly connect to an hdmi port and play on any hdmi enabled TV. Mini bluetooth controllers can be synced and function exactly the same. Now I get it, that Nintendo has solidified all this in a nice user friendly package; but it just feels so outdated. If it's all about the software, then fair enough, but Nintendo software at least to me, is rehashed same stuff over and over...

    2. Now what happens when you drop your tablet/console... Oh no! You just broke your CONSOLE. Sure you can buy a case, but no case will fit in the TV dock, so that will sorta defeat the instant "switch" feature.

    Overall I can see it's purpose, but I just think its not that exciting. How many people are really gonna lug around a tablet with 2 controllers...it wont fit in a pocket, so definitely need a bag... It just seems like its way too late into the market.

    Ummm looks like Skyrim is NOT coming to the Switch...

    Bethesda: "We're happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future," a spokesperson said.

    What you quoted doesn't necessarily mean Skyrim isn't coming to the Switch 100% and without a doubt.

    hmm that makes me confused as to why they put it in the video if it's not going to actually have it, oh well though, still cool that they'll at least have future titles for the Switch
