  • So you play on a normal controller – with a possible touch pad in the center? and then you can take it with you. I love the detachable controllers that remind me of what the nunchuck and wiimote could have been. I think the only thing I noticed was a some framerate issues when taking the tablet with you. Looks like some fantastic tech though.

    • I’ve no doubt the handheld version will need to reduce the graphical power, since it won’t have the entire system’s power.

      Drew Byrne October 20, 2016 2:10 pm Reply
    • Pretty sure the tablet IS the entire system. The thing that you slide it into is probably just a docking station.

    • You couldn’t have noticed frame rate issues because it wasn’t real, it was rendered. They’re not gonna record people ACTUALLY playing it when it’s still in development.

    • Vaughn Wilcox right. You can’t just “plug in” extra gpu power while a modern game like Skyrim is running on the fly like that. At least not yet.

    • If you’re talking about that weird graininess, it’s on the console version too. It’s a commercial, not a demo.

      Nolan M Daniels October 20, 2016 2:28 pm Reply
    • When in portable mode, it trims power consumption by reducing graphical power. The SoC they are using is easily capable of this on-the-fly change. When docked, the screen is turned off, and the system runs at full power, with the entirety if the render going to the television. Since it’s docked with constant power feed, it doesn’t need to limit itself. I have nVidia’s tablet, and have it setup to do the same thing.

    • Just put 1080p with 60 stable frame rate is quite enough. 4K is unnecessary since nintendo user prefer a better gameplay ( Miyamoto sorcery 😀 ) than just a plenty visual on higher dpi. The last questions is how long we can play in mobile mode? Because I prefer play handheld than as a home console :d.

Even CD Projekt Red says they’re very impressed by it. We’ll see where it goes, but to me it sounds like they’re doing things right this time around.

    • This portable console makes the 3DS obsolete. Furthermore, continuing production of 3DS consoles and games conflicts with this new system’s mobile features.

      Japan is a primarily handheld market. Nintendo is a Japanese based company. They’ll cater to their domestic business, obviously. If the 3DS is continued, that will impede on the sales performance of their new system. Why would they do that? They wouldn’t. The 3DS will be phased out so the customer base will upgrade.

      Having both a portable and home-based console allows for a larger install base which leads to more games sales. More game sales mean more money for Nintendo.

      You may say “well, then they can just continue the 3DS and get those game sales.” Yes, but then they’ll run into hardware limitations and miss out on console revenue.

      Make sense?

    • You could say the same thing about the industry as a whole. Not much has changed since N64/PSone days. Franchises are pretty much interchangeable. Since we went 3D nothing has really blown our minds. COD is similar every year. Halo, GTA, Gran Turismo, Madden etc.. Just like Mario, Smash, etc. New paint makes it look pretty. And I don’t mind painting every once in awhile. I don’t see it as a problem. Yes, I agree the whole industry has been disappointing over the years as far as progression goes. But they’re still games. Games, bro. And games are fun. At least Nintendo rolls the dice more often and tries different ways to play them.

      They can’t even be bothered to make their own Star Fox game.

      Even with guaranteed money…think of how much they’d’ve sold if they got Sega to HD remake F-Zero GX and include the AX content…throw in a course creator and such and I’d probably be playing Wii U every day.

      But Nintendo is so disjointed and doesn’t listen to what the fans actually want.

    • I’m also underwhelmed, but with recent advances in flash memory, cartridges are actually massively better than discs at this point. The main advantage of discs was storage space. Not a problem anymore for carts.

    • Cartridges are better now than they were in the 64 days. Faster load times and they can hold more than enough data…. you’re just being an idiot

    • The side controllers look like compact Wii remotes. You only use them stand alone for multiplayer games on the go or playing on the go at a distance which I can’t see being popular with that tiny screen

    • The use of cartridges was probably to emphasize the portability of it. Want to carry around a 90’s style CD carrier or a little bag full of SD cards that can’t be damaged really?

    • Another gimmicky system by Nintendo. I was hoping they would go back to basics but nope, instead they double down on the type of stuff that has completely bombed in the past. Im willing to bet that with the size of the system and the price point the specs are going to be garbage.

      Timur Celikel October 20, 2016 3:13 pm Reply
    • It becomes portable. Optical disk drives will consume more power, and if there is any shaking, can sometimes be disrupted. Lens gets dirtier quicker and easily. Cartridges are faster loading times, less power consumption, easier to store.

      They are moving in the most logical way forward with that.

      The tracks getting dirty can be alleviated by being cleaned. It’s not a hard concept to grasp.
      Anything can ‘seem’ something, but you can’t tell for sure until someone actually tests it.

      The controller comment I can kinda agree with.

      Overall, Nintendo is going with a forwards momentum.

    • Timur Celikel, you have no idea what you’re even going on about. Carts can hold much more data than discs these days, Sony makes companies pay royalties for using Blu-Ray, which can only hold 50GB per disc or 128GB for BDXL. Flash cards have a current capacity of 512GB, not to mention no moving parts which could result in failure of the console to read games, especially with the portable nature of the system. You have no idea about the specs or the price point, so this is pure speculation and trolling on your part.

    • Steve Pitsch There is some sort of plastic attachment that can connect both parts of the controller so that you get the feel and the dimensions of a regular controller.

      Also, there’s a pro controller.

  • This lines up with all the rumors and “leaks”, which is a good thing because the hybrid concept is a great concept. It was something I was hoping for back when the Wii U was announced. Nintendo has always tried to be innovative to stand out from the competitors, and their ideas has always impressed me.

  • That docking station looks like it has some power behind it. Please let it be a supplemental computing device. If it is the switch could be around the spec level of the PS4 pro.

    As for people who complained about a gimmick you really cant complain now. The gimmicks are optional. You can play it with a standard controller, or Wii U gamepad style but anywhere!, and you can play it Wii style. They safisfy everybody.

    Also that 3rd party support? Killlllummmmm

    Edit – I do however hate the analog placements on the controllers….

    Matt Bloom October 20, 2016 2:19 pm Reply
    • It’s going to be considered gimmicky if they don’t include the standard controller in the package.

      The dock is just an HDMI & USB dock. Hopefully Ethernet as well

  • I seriously wondered why you’d release a console in March but this is why it is genius…..it’s tax season and they’ll be less likely to compete with the other consoles and new games. Plus it’ll allow people to see these things out and about for eight months wondering what they are and looking into it. There will be so many kids begging for these by Christmas that they’ll sell like crazy. It allows the developers time to release more games for it as well by Christmas season when most people are buying this sort of thing. I’m not waiting though.

No excuse for Nintendo’s marketplace to be such a mess. I really hope the Switch is as cool as it looks here.

  • Not impressed. Only thing that sparked my interest was the Mario Game on there looked a lot like Mario 64 type. Zelda and skyrim. Got the witcher and hd skyrim next week. Il play zelda on my wii u. One thing they had better do with this console is Amiibo support. Lotta money went in to those for people.

    • Well Kenneth White thanks for your opinion. UNFORTUNATELY, the Wii series is not dead but apparently changing its name to switch. All the people that collected amiibos that did what they could to get exclusives would disagree with you. I have a few mostly of classic characters I like with no intention of use but there are people out there with giant collections. I would feel a little for them if they dropped support. Until Nintendo gets its head on straight, stops polishing last gen titles, stops chasing off devs, gets a competent online system, and gives fan demanded virtual console titles I think the ship will sink. This coming from someone whos always loved nintendo btw.

      Christopher Wilke October 20, 2016 2:58 pm Reply
    • There are Amiibos in the video if you look closely, so I don’t think they would be dropping support now. There would be a lot of uproar if they did, considering they’re not even that old.

    • Yoooo this is the first real innovation in home video game consoles in years and you’re focusing on Amiibo? I mean yes, they would be making a mistake not to include amiibo but that’s hardly relevant. That would be like if Google finally finished the self driving car and everyone was concerned whether or not they would have cup holders, ya know?
