I'm cautiously optimistic.

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

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

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.

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.

Maybe they should rename it to the Nintendo Peripheral.

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

*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.

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.
