    A PC isn't really a competitor to this though...

    Sure, this can play on a TV but it's also a handheld...

    It's closer to an iPad or iPhone with a HDMI cable and Bluetooth controller...

    Mind you, just because it is portable doesn't mean it'll automatically be weak in the graphics department... just look at how powerful the iPhone / iPad are as far...

    The iPhone Plus models run games at 1080p for crying out loud...

    the video kinda seems to overhype the portability of the tablet part, i mean, its still a huge ass thing you carry around there. and you'll probably still want to put something on or around it to protect the screen.

    also inb4 the name doesn't imply its a new console enough!

    that mario level looked really weird... like a cowboy level, strange

    anyway the switch looks cool, good luck to nintendo :) the two little controllers thing is pretty cool for 2 player.

    Supposedly it switches performance, like 900P in tablet mode and 1080P when connected to the base station ramping up the clocks to pull full res and FPS. So I guess if you wanted max performance you would just play on a TV all the time?

    They abandoned the Nintendo typical digistick and used a generic one instead.

    but you just said..and then you said...wat.

    And even at 30fps it looked choppy. Here's hoping it'll run smooth as butter by march.

    >Custom Tegra SoC

    :rofl2:

    Oh god, performance is gonna be bad...there's no way a custom Tegra SoC is gonna hit PS4/Xboner levels of performance, no way at all. That's really disappointing.

    So, you can remove the controllers, why didn't they attach them to mock plastic fake golfclubs and such already in the trailer, don't they have accelerometers?

    Also with the controllers on your powergloves you need to put the tablet in your vr view holder.

    Seriously, the social part of splitting up into two cute minicontrollers and playing co-op is the best part, and since it's there from day one it hopefully gets supports from most games.

    That breath of the wild framerate concerns me. I can't help but shake the feeling that, if it were put in through post production as someone had suggested, they would've definitely taken the time to make it look pretty. The only reason I can think of as to why they left it looking like that is because they didn't want to give consumers a false impression of how the game runs.

    Nintendo has ALWAYS been about providing a high framerate for their games... take a look at Mario Kart... they managed to do 720p 60fps...

    They could have easily done 1080p at a lower framerate but they chose a higher framerate instead...
