Nope, it's a Home Console. That is how Nintendo advertises it. It's not a handheld even though you can take it on the go. They don't want to damage sales of the 3DS until they see how well it sells. If does amazing its first year this will be the only Nintendo platform in the future, otherwise we will get another handheld.

I know you're being sarcastic but still, Nintendo even named it the "Switch" meaning it changes from one thing to another. Regardless of how they are playing it close to the vest about it not affecting the 3DS, its clearly plain to see what this thing is.

Honestly I am not convinced it will affect the 3DS too much anyways. The thing is too big to fit into a kid's pocket.

3ds isn't exactly able to fit into kids pockets either that thing can't fit in my pockets most of the time.

Based. On my xl that is which the switch without controllers is about the same size as.

Seems like an issue that needs to be addressed and you would hope fixed without a return of some hardware. I shouldn't have to worry about how I hold the controller.

Given that it's a tiny controller that gets engulfed in your entire hand, is anyone really surprised?

Might just be defective controllers.

I mean, it is just the left one that is having sync issues.

Yes

I can be in another room and my PS4 controller still works... For gaming you always want a strong signal to keep input latency fast and strong.

a PS4 control is not wrapping inside your hand. Either way, that video shows it has nothing to do with that.

Placing your hand around it or putting the controller behind your back also makes control wonky for both the right and left controller.

Bluetooth for both I believe so it should have a 30' range on it.

And yes two hands holding the PS4 controller can wrap it (not everyone is Donald Trump). There are people who while holding a DS4 properly would completely cover the front which is the issue with the Joycon, not just hiding the controller completely.

Y'all are acting like a bt signal is as fragile as an IR remote.

Wireless mice would be unreliable as **** if you could block the signal by not using the claw.

^This. And wireless in-ear bluetooth headphones would only be able to play music from a phone in someone else's pocket.

If there are connection problems on the controllers, the design or implementation is at fault. Hope it's something they can fix with a patch.

Depends on the hardware being used. Bragi Dash(wireless bluetooth headphones) will cut out if they are in your back pocket. I know some other truly wireless headphones (not that jaybird stuff) have the same issues.

Joycons look to be pretty small so they might have been limited on what hardware they could use for it. In comparison a mouse and a ps4 controller probably have a lot more space to fit stuff.

Seeing as it's only some of them I could be a faulty batch (for Nintendo sake I hope not), or a issue that can be patched.

I am royally pissed at the developers of Bit Trip Runner 3. Way to support your loyal fans on other platforms. Here is a hint, a lot of us don't want (or can't afford ) a $300 toy. (The switch is a pure toy, no other function than games, unlike say a computer....)

Hope this move bites them in the ass and they have to come crawling back.

They startee first on the 3ds before porting to other platforms, sure exclusivity sucks, but I'm surprised they're even making a 3rd.

The left Joycon is concerning. I ordered a pro controller because I plan on using it on my PC and my wife wanted one. I hope there is a launch patch fixing the JoyCon issue.

It might be a non-issue now, it looks like nintendo has a firmware update for the controller.

Or maybe not, users are reporting about an update taking care of it, but this is what eurogamer has to say about it:

Quote:
UPDATE 2/3/17 4:00pm: The Nintendo Switch's day one system update has launched, and there are reports online that installing the patch with the Joy-Cons attached updates the firmware on the controllers, resolving the de-sync issues. Is this really the case? Unfortunately not. We've updated our console with controllers attached and re-run the battery of tests detailed below. In all cases, the range and consistency of the connection of each Joy-Con remains the same, and the left controller still has demonstrably weaker range than the right. Eurogamer has contacted Nintendo several times now concerning this issue, and we still await a reply.
