Nintendo Switch (NX)

Nintendo's new hybrid console. I really like the concept, if I can play the same quality games as the other consoles on the go it'd be something I'd get.

Trailer looks like it was filmed in Vancouver:

I would doubt it unless you could download them? Looks like you load it up via cartridges.

I just hope 3rd party support continue past the first few years. Portable Skyrim and 2k in the demo.

yea :P not exactly sure what I was thinking. But i'm wondering what the architecture will be like?

Kind of a double edged sword, similar to the PS4/Xboxone architecture and you might lose backwards compatibility, but it makes it easier on 3rd party devs.

All they have to really do is update their Virtual Consoles and should be able to run the older games. Not sure about the Wii U.

The new Mario game looks like a proper 3D platformer instead of the shitty 3D World we got on the Wii U.

I have high hopes that there will be BC. Nintendo is king of BC. However, at 1:06 in the video, there's a pretty good view of the game card slot. It looks smaller than a 3DS/DS card. Perhaps, there'll be a 2nd slot for 3DS/DS, like the GBA/GB slot in the DS-Lite?

yeah but can I pirate?
do all the new DS take proprietary cards that have adapters for SD memory card?

https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2016/1...ntendo-switch/

wishful thinking but probably not Pascal hardware.

anyone wanna guess the price?

filming location looks like West 4th as well as TBC in the video.

i'm going to predict the whole portability brings nothing new to the table for most

most are perfectly happy with gaming on the phone/tablet or they'll just buy a DS

so if there's not significantly better 3rd party games then this will be not much different than the WiiU in terms of sales

It looks pretty slick. If it could play back video from something like a USB stick or SD card it would be killer.

The homebrew scene will probably crack the Switch in a few years. Probably 4 or 5 years before a relatively easy process to crack is discovered. It was only recently that the process for cracking the Wii U and 3DS has become streamlined.

I like the idea of having home console quality games on the go. I hate mobile games because touch screen controls suck, and the DS doesn't have home console graphics.

That being said, I don't see this winning over people who do enjoy mobile phone games, and who knows if this 3rd party support will stick around if sales are slow out of the gate.

The majority of tablet users probably just use it for surfing the net, and consuming media. Potentially, their next tablet could be the Switch. It'll cost less than an iPad.

Assuming that the Switch is a tablet and has tablet functions as well.

remind me not to touch any guy's switch console/controller if it does turn out to have "tablet" capabilities.

Neat idea.

Had to laugh at the I have yet to laugh at the rooftop party scene.
I have yet to attend a summer backyard bbq party where everyone's like "Shit, you know what this party's needs? Video Games!"

IMO, I wouldn't market the switch as a new gaming console. It's more of a new platform since it blurs the line between a home and mobile console.

With the limitations of the tablet device, now they have an excuse for their lagging technology.
