Official Nintendo Switch Discussion
 
3 days remain! CANNOT WAIT :D

SirBaron Jan 9, 2017 02:22 PM

I'm cautiously optimistic.

It's the most powerful dedicated handheld device, but it's Nintendo. They will **** it up somehow :bleh:

SubCog Jan 9, 2017 04:03 PM

I never underestimate nintendo's ability to screw things up, but I'm pretty optimistic about the Switch.

logical Jan 9, 2017 04:37 PM

All I need to know is the price.

I heard it from somewhere they expect it to cost around 245 US Dollars.

So your probably looking at 249.99.

Yeah, everyone is expecting $250. It will be a massive mistake for them to go higher than that... if Nintendo's looking for something to screw up, this is probably it.

logical Jan 10, 2017 09:13 AM

250 is what Im looking at for a gussied up tablet that plays Nintendo games. At that price I will probably pre-order but anything higher probably not.

ShaidarHaran Jan 10, 2017 09:19 AM

$299+ guaranteed.

Nascar24 Jan 10, 2017 09:38 AM

$199 and I'm in!:lol:

250USD for base version, 299usd for increased storage + game (splatoon).

That's what I'm saying.

Maybe they should rename it to the Nintendo Peripheral. :bleh:

Snark aside, I'm cautiously optimistic about this system. I'm interested in seeing how it turns out.

Sasquach Jan 11, 2017 04:23 PM

im wondering about those case protectors....you encase the entire thing into the protector, and when you want to use the joycons you have to take the thing out before you can detach the controllers lol.

SirBaron Jan 11, 2017 05:45 PM

Not everyone will use the dock is probably their thinking.

That would be smarter, but again, this is Nintendo.

|MaguS| Jan 12, 2017 12:15 AM

I am willing to bet it will be $299 for base that only has 16GB of storage...

*sigh* Nintendo and their sh*tload of accessories. While the Handheld looks neat and the price might be well within the range of 250-290 bucks, with half of the extra stuff you'll be more within the range of 600-700 bucks which is a joke (a common one, but still a joke, a bad one actually).

Well, whatever, people will buy it no matter how much it will cost.

Being able to play on the couch while watching sports is a dream for me. I loved that about the Wii U but the Wii U lacked games

this :)

SirBaron Jan 12, 2017 11:07 AM

I change my splatoon prediction to a crappy pack in game, but still 250 and a 300 sku.

You can do that with the PS4 and a Vita or Windows Pc/tablet/laptop.

The fact that the switch doesn't have an eternal port and you need an adapter (that they are charging $30 for) is a sign that they are not logically thinking about the console.

night Jan 12, 2017 12:19 PM

supposed to be at PAX South, but not sure whether to be optimistic about what I will see. There will be a huge line and probably not much more to see/do than will already be at this presentation.

SirBaron Jan 12, 2017 12:28 PM

Hori is charging that much, also if it's like the Wii u you can use any USB to ethernet adapter.

It would Be nice if it was a part of the dock (which is just a glorified charging dock) but vita and 3ds never had ethernet.

If anyone looks at this machine as a console they will be majority disappointed.

Its a handheld that can also play said games on a TV.

Then they are screwing up their marketing message, again.

Its being advertised as both, hence the name, and that is what the general public is assuming.

It IS both. That's what those words mean. The point of the order of the words is to help people keep their expectations in check regarding its graphical capabilities.

That's the norm price for arcade sticks. $100-150 Mid tier and $200+ for higher end.

If it's successful, in a few years we'll think the whole question of "Is it a console or a portable?" was the wrong way to look at it. It's just video games, and you can play them wherever you want. Someday I will tell my grandchildren about the olden days when all the best games could only be played at home, and there was a separate device for special "portable" games.

Heck, I'm already finding myself having similar conversations with my children. Back in my day you couldn't watch any cartoon you want whenever you want. We only had 5 channels, and they each played only one show at a time! There was also a thing called "commercials".

night Jan 12, 2017 06:06 PM

i made my kids learn to watch the youtube ads to support the people they love to watch.
Within reason. If you get a 10min ad for a 3min video then I don't blame you. Although I usually hit refresh.
