    my dad works for nintendo.
    great to know that i can't store it on my freezer or oven :/

    anyway, heh, there is barely anything new that we didn't already know... no specs like ram, cpu...

    i wonder how does this turns in most countries that don't even have a dedicated nintendo website.. i know this is the future, but nintendo so far keep up with easily replaceable batteries in their devices so far, even the wii as a screw to easily replace the clock battery!

    AND PLEASE GBATEMP, LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT THE BROWSER\HAX IN HERE, if you do, congrats, you are a shithead.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    of course has blue tooths, nintendo likes to drink the blue thing from toilets
    bluetooth is to communicate with joycons. (like the wii and wii u did with the wiimotes)

    Let us know when the REAL specs have been revealed. The specs here have been known since fox comm leaked them in December. Thought this thread was going to be about the cpu, gpu and ram. I am disappointed, thanks to the crappy topic title.

    the 60fps and the wireless ac support is new to me, but everything else was either already known or just assumed (audio, for instance). Nice consolidation of knowledge tho.

    Indeed, just reported the OP to include the direct link. The nintendo site also has the info formatted in a much better way.. :)

    seriously though, not much new info that wasn't guessed or leaked before. Hopefully this is a better success story compared to the Wii U.

    This doesn't really tell us much. I'll be looking froward to the hardware breakdowns around launch week.

    According to FCC filings, yes. MIMO 5GHz WiFi is supported

    EDIT: Also the link to the filings

    Nintendo uses Bluetooth.
    Sony (PS3 and PS4) use Bluetooth. PlayStation Vita also uses Bluetooth.
    Microsoft (Xbox 360 and Xbox One) uses proprietary.

    One of these things is not like the others. One of these things, isn't the same.

    Xbox One controllers moved to Bluetooth in addition to the ~2.4GHz proprietary signal they use for the console. Not that I mind, the Xbox controllers are gold if you just find a receiver from somewhere (PC + Steam Link work nicely on third party adapters too) :)
