    OP is fully updated with all the relevant info, including devs that will support the console, and individual screenshots from the trailer.

    And exactly that scares me, Vita games stretched to an big TV are looking terrible because the games are rendered in lower resolution (good for small screens but bad on big screens). Its hard or basically impossible to put high end parts in small devices if your aim is relatively "affordable price range" (Nintendos mind). If they want 3rd party support they better be at least on par/near PS4/XONE consoles specs wise.

    Im not expecting a powerhouse but come on...... the better the console is as a whole system, the bigger the games library would be.

    Looking at the controller from the screenshot, it looks uncomfortable as fuck to hold. Why is there just a giant gap in the center with nothing there?

    I don't want to be too pessimistic since I really like the concept but watch the footage when the guy play Breath of The Wild on the handheld. The framerate looks really terrible.

    Whaaaaat :blink: The name NX was better. Cartridge make it weird. And hope to (like the other Nintendo consoles) it would be easy-to-hack, and in about 2021-22, "Swemu" would be started...

    First-day buyer over here for sure; this new console looks absolutely wonderful! Came home just now to see the trailer!

    The name "Switch" is questionable for me; could've been a bit more creative, but I'll take it lol. It's the design that counts mainly for me after all, and I am saying that this design I will absolutely enjoy in my household!

    To all users complaining about the name, remember when they announced the Revolution name will be "Wii" ? everybody complained too.
    Now, you probably don't care about it anymore.

    If you want a home console only, never put it away from its support.
    If you want a handheld only, never play the game on your TV.

    One hardware to please both user's preferences.


    I'm worried about Zelda, how will it displays the second screen with the map?
    Probably on the same screen in a Pause menu?
     
  17. So when its plugged in as a home system does it have more power than when you use it as a handheld?

    Why no dual screen mode like the Wii U?

    Ugh this is exactly what I expected. Although the idea of portability is good for fans but making a handheld and stationary console in one is probably going to make Nintendo lose money. Great for consumers that want one console for the go and at home but it merges Nintendo's two markets.

    The idea of splitting the controller for 2 player was an interesting idea. Great for games on the go like Mario Kart, Mario party and other Nintendo multiplayer games.

    I hope the Switch is powerful enough to complete with PS4, XBONE. I want to see some titles to be across all systems like the next Elder Scrolls, Resident Evil or Metal Gear games. 3rd party support will be the linchpin of this console. It would also be cool if Atlus ported over Persona 5 to the Switch. Maybe something like Persona 5 Portable.

    Again I'm not happy with this news, I was hoping for a console and not some hybrid. If it's half assed like the WiiU then Nintendo is in big trouble. They could lose even more fans and that would be unfortunate.

    For a gamepad-like feel when playing on TV. You don't want to hold the small controllers do you? <.<
