Nintendo Switch thread

Can't wait for this to come out. I just placed a preorder with tog although retail price has not been announced.

Rumor has it that it will come with tegra x1 chip. Too bad not the newer x2 version.

Depends on the games good or not. Nintendo hasn't been making good games recently.

Yes the preview game play looks good. Hope it's smooth to play when on the go, since the memory clock will be throttled down to save battery when on the go.

Wait and see how!!! Nintendo is never good in console making and third party support. Currently many developers are supporting it because it's new and up and coming. But if the console don't sell,they will just drop or cancel. Like Wii u. The pricing is important also. Currently with Ps4 xbox one, it's hard to beat it with the pricing and game library. Nintendo switch is just a newer version of their handheld. I feel the battery will be a factor to it's success. What switch is doing is similar to a android tablet. They are just bring more hardcore video gaming on the go.

yeah switch is not really a console this time. Since it is a handheld I feel it will have more success.
