Default Nintendo Switch

What do you all think? Pretty cool concept . . . I've already got a X1 and PS4 and need to play less video games but it's still innovative and different!

I think the fact that Skyrim is a feature/impressive game on the console is telling. I realize you can take it handheld, but keep in mind this is still a game that was released going on 5 years ago now. Going on the timeline between Skyrim and Oblvion, we could be expecting a new Elder Scrolls game by the end of next year. How will this console handle games like that if it's supposedly impressive that it can play 5 year old games?

I feel bad for Nintendo. They can't compete with Sony and Microsoft in the premium console space. They have to compete on price (i.e., hardware that is much less powerful).

Their handhelds were their moneymaker, but with phones/tablets taking over now, the handheld space is shrinking. So they're trying to combine it with a home console, and settle for a weaker console.

Sorry. Not interested. Third parties will target their premiere games for the premium consoles. Porting over old games, or having less-attractive versions of new games, isn't gonna cut it.

Interesting concept, but the above comment about devs only developing their premiere games for the premium consoles is correct. This is going to wind up going the same way as the WiiU and it'll only be worthwhile for Nintendo enthusiasts that enjoy their first party titles. The mobility will attract to a lot of people, but while we don't have some details there have been suggestions that gaming battery life is a mere 3-4 hours, which is terrible. Also judging by the rumored GPU they're using it will most certainly not match the power of X1 or PS4.

Side note: they advertised it running Skyrim while Skyrim isn't even confirmed in development for the console.

I wish Nintendo would pull a SEGA and start making money again by putting their IPs on third party consoles.

I agree with this. If Sony was able to buy out Nintendo and turn Nintendo's first party titles into Sony exclusives they would dominate the market. I only say Sony because I feel like Microsoft would have a harder time acquiring a Japanese company than Sony would.

I don't want MS or Sony buying out Nintendo. I want Nintendo to restructure themselves as a third party developer/publisher for consoles and still hold their footprint as the primary true mobile gaming platform.

Conglomerates are a bad thing in the entertainment industry - innovation from other companies inspires their competitors to work harder. You should see how Sony handled themselves after acquiring a massive PlayStation market with the PS2 into how they managed the first few years of the PS3. They seemed to get complacent and allowed Microsoft to come back and dominate some markets with the 360. The flip is happening this gen (due to Xbox forgetting it's a gaming platform for the X1 reveal), but I honestly see Sony returning to their PS3 management ways whereas Xbox couldn't have more of a "for the gamer" approach right now. Sony fans can argue more exclusive games all day, but their management decisions (no EA Access, only BC option is pay-to-play, etc) are definitely looking like the old Sony.

No. With Microsoft struggling, I don't want one company in the market. There's too much market power.

Even the Microsoft-supporting websites are saying Microsoft's prognosis in the gaming world is bad.

It's what I hope AMD does against Intel, and Nvidia in the PC market. Time to get better priced products that kick azz, instead of a 5-10% upgrade every few years.

Don't know if the Switch is worth 300 bucks, guess the market will decide.

I already pre-ordered mine. I commute to work by train every day and this thing is great for that. I also work super late at the office frequently (i.e., right now) and having this thing for breaks would be nice.

I also travel for work. Skyrim or Zelda on a 3 hour flight? Yes please.

Not to mention, once we know details on the Virtual Console, I'll be able to have a classic games library with me wherever I want to go.

I'm really excited for it.

My list of games that I know I'm looking forward to playing on it:
-Zelda: Breath of the Wild (launch title)
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (April 28)
-Rime (spring)
-Splatoon 2 (summer)
-Mario Odyssey (holiday 2017)
-Fire Emblem (just announced today for 2018)
-Pokemon Stars (date not yet announced)
-Yooka-Laylee (date not yet announced)
-Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers (date not yet announced)


Dragon Quest XI, Skyrim, Snipperclips and Xenoblade 2 could also hook me.
Nintendo has also all but confirmed that a new Metroid game is also on the way.
Then there's Virtual Console.

All told, that's PLENTY for me to feel OK investing in this thing. I'll have no shortage of stuff to play wherever I go over the next year.

Even better, a lot of these games (Mario Kart, e.g.) are games that I don't want to play for an hour at a time. A quick 15 minute play session is great and if I can just grab the system in my hands and play without launching up a home console on the TV, I think I'm more likely to get a little play time in.

Nintendo seems to have a habit of releasing some blah consoles, then everyone writes them of for dead, they follow it up with a totally groundbreaking concept.

Going back to N64
Gamecube
Wii
WiiU
And now this.

Can they recapture their mojo for about the 4th or 5th time with the switch?
