I never expected Nintendo to compete in terms of raw power with PS4/XBone but will be a huge mistake if the rumored 720p screen is true. In this day and age, the minimum you have to go for is 1080p.
Agreed too. It's ok to lose out to Sony and Microsoft in terms of raw power e.g. rendering, textures, shaders, etc.

I would accept the portable console to be at 720p display caused by hardware limitations... But on TV wise, it's gotta be at 1080p and I don't mean upscaled graphics.

I mean just look at our smartphones and tablets, they are already sitting on 1080p resolution very comfortably. And they are all moving towards 4k displays like the upcoming Samsung S8.

Heading on the 720p (on TV) is really a huge step backwards IMO

Its not possible to have comparable specs with ps4/xb1, to do that and sell at 250 usd would most likely mean selling the console at a loss, which is never nintendo's intention. Their hardware is always overpriced in terms of components used, ppl who got buy their stuff before will sure know.

They also wont get much 3rd party support, partly because of the reason above, partly because of their choice of storage for the games: cartridge. How big can those get? I play pc versions of lots of newer titles, most of them are like 40gb minimum.

The switch's selling point is pretty much the same titles: zelda, mario, mario kart, splatoon, etc. Either you like them or you dont. Also got a bunch of 3rd party games that traditionally only appear on nintendo handhelds like shin megami tensei, bravely default, monster hunter, pokemon.
Well. You can think of the cartridge as sd cards. Think the target size is 32gb. Or less. Which I think is smart move they can make the footprint small without any disk drive. And it should be quite competitive in terms of read speed against bluray drives.

Aiya. Liked what I said a few pages down, lack of information = speculation = disappointment

To do 1080p IS to compete with ps4 and xb1 liao ma lol. TBH those 2 consoles dont even do 1080p that well, 90% of the titles only can maintain 30 fps or less.

Yes we ought to be cautious about the overhype, at the end of the day this is just like vita with vita tv function included, except that:

1. Vita tv only works with a limited no of titles for whatever stupid reason; this one should work for all titles
2. This is essentially a nintendo portable console with the convenience of porting the games to tv, the library of games available should be impressive. Just dont expect sui sui 1080p 60fps graphics with AA as that has never been nintendo's strongsuit, just upscaled mobile quality games.
some games with many touchscreen control cant work on VTV la. even you connect a DS4, using the touchpad for the touchscreen function is gonna be a pain. just like trying to play games on pc using touchpad instead of a mouse. however i do agree that sony could have done more to support it. both vita product are kinda being treated like a b@stard child.

I would reserve my opinion at least till the press conference next month...

The portability function is indeed attractive but I wonder how it's power capacity and charging works...

Hopefully system specs like its graphics and display screen/resolution would be decent.

Think the price in the first month will be crazily expensive. Will wait out for a couple of months for it to stable down. And also if the specs is worth the price haha as well as regional locking.

Hope Nintendo can be consumers friendly this time round.

Where to buy ah? Probably playe bah for me.

Unless it's an urgent need and the confirmed specs are desirable, I would consider PO.

Otherwise no.

Prefer to wait for the prices/stocks to stabilise, see if there's any console bundles, and read some reviews first.
