The whole point of the console is that it can be taken anywhere , thats a gimmick. They have those lame tiny controllers which I'm guessing no one will use and instead just buy an actual controller, which will be fine . If they just went away with the "on the go" aspect of it and just kept it as a small console capable of playing the biggest AAA games while having great nintendo games there'd be no issue. Nintendo keeps trying to have every console have some sort of gimmick when it isn't necessary .

Also, is there even a disc drive in this thing? Doesn't seem like it
That's like calling a tablet a gimmick because it's a PC on the go. When your phone is capable of doing more and more stuff on that hardware do you call that gimmicky or a sign that technology is advancing? It's like calling handheld game systems a gimmick too,again,that is just silly. You clearly went into this expecting and wanting to hate it and did,bottom line. Everyone i have seen hating this thing so far is doing the same. There is LITERALLY nothing that they have showed so far that is a clear fuck up or deserve a negative reaction.

It doesn't use a disc drive,it's using cartridge as shown in the trailer.

I'll give it a shot. But like has been mentioned already, 3rd party support is going to make or break them. I really want Nintendo to succeed here, but I'm really not sure what's gonna happen with the Switch.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

Breath of The Wild and Mario 3D adventure on the GO already has me foaming at the mouth.

Like SHala said, it's a dedicated gaming console, and that's what the Wii U wasn't. And like El Dandy said, the Wii U practically had NO support, and it also seemed like Nintendo themselves weren't really behind it either, like they were, the Wii. The Wii U is literally the only console that has made thing a little shaky for Nintendo in the console run. If they fulfil the promise with the games, then I don't see how this can fail.

My only concern is the battery life, and price for this thing.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

You can see in the trailer at one point 2 character on one kart ala double dash. Mario Kart is not a port,seems like a new game.

EDIT: Oops. XD Still no confirmation if it's a port or a new game! Did seem different from MK8.

Kinda disappointed by no real new games/IP announced. Although the prospect of having all of that 3rd party support is what really matters.

THat's probably the reason for that tbh. Mario and Zelda still sell like a mother fucker, but you can't please everyone with just those.

The best they could do, if they don't plan to stir too far from the OG names they already have, is making new games for major names they haven't in a long time, like Metroid or some Kid Icarus, or new Diddy Kong Racing, or a proper Star Fox and F Zero game.

I hope that was a Double Dash sequel. Still my favorite MK game. Wagg, you and me vs. Cala and Soup in Mario Kart 9

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

For those who cite power as a concern...the switch allows devs like Bethesda and a franchise like Skyrim to reach the handheld gaming market,which is a big incentive to support Nintendo this time. The Wii U wasn't because the "reach" of the gamepad is shit and it was just another home console. Did nothing for them.
