Switch looks awesome, but Skyrim is the Mass Effect 3 of that lineup. LOOK KIDS HARDCOOOOOOOOOOOORE GAMES!

But yeah. Sold me in 3 minutes when they couldn't sell me a Wii U in 3 years. No fucking awful tablet controller to hold makes all the difference.

Other question...cartridges? Really? Hmmm. How will patches and such work?

Maybe they will be shipping finished games so no patches will be necessary. A revelation!

That is simply not the reality of video games for the last 13 years.

I hold judgement till some hands on time by someone not employed by Nintendo happens. That video looks awesome BUT is that the reality of that machine? We don't really know yet.

The way I understand it from PR flackies is that the cartridge loads the game onto an HDD like a Rom. From there, patches and other junk will be downloaded via Internet connection.

I love how Nintendo dumps so much cash into hardware development, but the software and game selection always feels dodgy.

The biggest takeaway is that we're getting a new 3d Mario game and a new Splatoon. YES.

Yeah and what are the graphical capabilities of something that small? I know graphics aren't the end all, be all BUT most of your current gen games are being made with them pushed as far as they can. I don't want to play a gen or two ago's games because the controller/screen is neat.

Now, there's allegations that it's just the NVidia Shield repackaged for Nintendo. Like quite literally nothing changed since 2014.

Nvidia put out a blog on the tech behind it. It's the tegra. So a perfectly fine chip, and puts it basically on parity with current Xbone and PS4...which ok. Those two are pushing hardware further, but that's not an awful place to be.

Same here. I think it's a really interesting idea. But like every other Nintendo machine I'm going to wait to see what kind of first party games show up since third party support will be nonexistent.

The Nintendo lineup will always be there. I didn't like Wii or Wii U because of the stupid controller. The new pro controller looks great. It's basically just an Xbone controller.

I love the Wii U gamepad. It fits awesomely in my giant man hands.

For a portable console seemingly dependent on removable wireless controllers (unless you only want to play it in full tablet mode)... aren't those things always going to be out of battery? And if the system itself charges them when they are slapped on the sides, how does that work?

So I'm on a plane gaming, drain the controllers playing wirelessly, now i reattach them to the main system (which is already drained from playing games) and now its going to drain the system battery even faster while it recharges the controllers?

I'm not watching the press conference but the gifs I saw of the Mario game look super bizarre/awesome.

Mario looks awesome but sooooooooooo wrong. I want a Switch, but at launch there's Zelda...and that minigame collection? I can wait until like Splatoon 2 is out.
