Nintendo Switch

Post by Gameguy1996 on Thu Oct 20, 2016 8:09 am

After months of waiting the Nintendo Switch has finally been shown. Also here are the list of 3rd party developers.



It looks like it's a hybrid system after all and you can switch out the controllers much like the leaks have been saying. As for games I saw Breath of the Wild, Splatoon, Mario Kart 9, NBA 2K 17 and the next 3D Mario game.



Most of the big names and to go EA back on board is huge.

March 2017, it looks nice both controller types don't look like they'd be uncomfortable or inconvenient for it. I'm ready for it, so hopefully it has a good launch lineup to support it.

And next I'll be seeing reviewers picking apart the video posted with a microscopic comb until there are more details about the thing. I do like the idea for the console; but my only problem with it is that I'm going to end up keeping it hooked into my tv since Jing & I both believe that the controllers due to the small size will get easily lost, or end up broken after a time. I hope the controllers are cheap to buy at launch; is all I have to say. To quote Jing; "I find their lack of specks disturbing." Because there are way too many questions then answers at this juncture to really know if I want it now or not is how I feel tbh.

So basically it's exactly what we've all assumed for the past few months, makes sense. The new games footage looks pretty cool though, and the name actually works finally.

Nintendo has confirmed that they will not be giving details on specific games or console specs for the Nintendo Switch until 2017.

NINTENDO YOU ARE KILLING ME. HOW? I feel like they need to give details on games very soon because that's the determining factor in whether or not people actually want to buy this thing.

We pretty much know that the specs are a little below the Xbox One and we could see some 3rd party studios say that set game is coming to the Switch since, I'm pretty sure, we know most of Nintendo's games for the release window.

^ I've been hearing rumors it isn't, but obviously until that's confirmed there's really no saying. But I 100% agree.

Of course the rumors have returned, and the newest says that the right Joy Con will feature an IR pointer that can be used in place of the touch screen while playing on your TV, and will work similarly to Wii Remote pointers.

We said in a recent report that we believe games will not be allowed to require touch screen functionality for any game, as all Switch games will be required to be playable while the handheld is in the dock.

With regards to how this will be circumvented, we believe the solution is that touch screen games will be playable on your TV by use of an IR pointer located in the bottom of the right Joy-Con.

Having spoken to sources within Ubisoft, we believe that games which support touch functionality on the handheld will use IR functionality to replicate that ability on the TV.

This is fully expected for me, and honestly I'd be disappointed if it isn't included. I feel like the Joy Cons are replacing the Wii Remotes so it only makes sense for it to be there.

I still hope the regular Wii Remotes can be used since, my hands are to big for the Joy Con left and right. It seems like there could still be Switch news in 2016.



If this is true I would not expect anymore news until right before Christmas. Right now Nintendo will focus on Pokemon, the NES Classic, Star Rush, amiibo and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS for there holiday sales.

Here's a couple more rumors:

- hardware model shown in the reveal featured a USB-C port for power
- this port will be able to be used to charge the handheld while away from the Switch Dock
- position of the USB-C port means you will not be able to charge it while the system is propped up on its kickstand
- the Switch's lackluster battery is being made up for with the ability to quickly charge
- Nintendo doesn’t have any plans to support USB Hard Drives
- allowing consumers to attach external drives to the Dock will cause players to see the system as less inherently portable

I really hope that more portable USB charger is true, I NEED that, it seems almost necessary. They can't only allow charging with the dock or it just won't work well. The lack of USB hard drive support is definitely a let down, although I will say SD cards work well enough for me.

People who want digital games better get that 128 GB Micro SD card if there going full digital. As for the charge time I sure hope it's an hour or less.

Toys R US Canada has listed the Switch's price as $329.99. So the price could end up being $250 in America.



Source 1

Source 2

I hope this is true since, $250 feels like the sweet spot. At the time though its could be a cat se like the Wii U where there is a standard version and a deluxe version with more space to download digital games.

$250 isn't that bad of a price tbh. Though, since it's technically a tablet you can hook up to the tv & play with smaller wiimote controllers; hopefully it'll sell as well if not better then the Wii did at this juncture.
