Thread: Nintendo Switch

  1. #1

    Nintendo Switch

    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/nin.../1100-6444626/

    Nintendo has confirmed it will broadcast new details about the company's next big console on Thursday, October 20 at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET/3 PM BST.
    the company will release a three-minute trailer for the NX. As of yet, we don't know if we'll see games, hardware, or both. Notably, Nintendo calls the announcement a "trailer" and not a full direct presentation.

    Same day as the RDR 2 trailer. Odd, but it is Nintendo.

    Clearly means RDR2 playable only on NX, IMO.

    Will also have standard controller available in case those mini-Wii sticks aren't your style.

    I think this is a good idea. I don't have interest in it but the graphics for NBA 2K looked pretty good on that. Curious to see the final specs and price on it.

    Was that Skyrim at the beginning of the video?

    Agreed, those are small damn controllers. Combined with the screen for a handheld, not bad, but thankfully the controller can be used at home or on the go with the system.

    That's a very cool concept but I need to know alot more before I'd even start to think about it.

    I wonder if that mobile system is able to function as a tablet?

    Either way, interesting. I really didn't expect to be impressed by Nintendo. Whether I am beyond today remains to be seen though.

    If that could be used as a real tablet then it got a lot better. I think the Vita would have been more successful too.

    It won't be a tablet. If so, they would have to partner with Google or Apple and if they did that, they would have announced that partnership today.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


    Some new Zelda videos.







    Skyrim was shown about a minute into the video. Oddly enough it is not yet confirmed for the system.

    Same. This shit is the revolution. Fuck VR. I want 1080p (supposedly the screen is 900p according to leaks) mobile Mario, Zelda, etc.

    Seems like a cool idea if they can get publishers on board and the games are fully featured instead of watered down ports.

    My concern from the video would be the quality of the device and if it can hold up long term with the constant sliding the controllers & screen in and out. Also, I wonder what kind of fan it has & how it keeps from overheating.

    Agree with you, Mors - while I'd like to try out VR, I'm definitely more interested in Switch than VR. One you can take anywhere, the other you basically need an empty room to properly devote to it.

    Right now I have very little desire for VR. Those games are limited and the price of the equipment is more than the console! No thanks. Maybe if I experienced it I might change my mind but right now I don't care about it.

    Agreed.

    Switch looks like the real future. VR feels like 3D, just a gimmick.

    Yeah I have zero desire for VR. On top of that the games are short as hell from what I've seen.

    I read the Batman VR game was really cool but only 2-3 hours. That's pretty short even if the games are $25 to $30.

    I think the Star Wars game is just short little missions.
