I think the portability of the device is very compelling though, even for hardcore gamers. I expect Doom to do very well on Switch.
My issue is that some of the multi platform games on it cost more. Fate for example can be found for $20 on Vita, $30-40 on PS4 and $60 on Switch.

Is that because they're releasing old games as if they were new (like Doom), or is it because those little cartridges cost more to manufacture? Or just Nintendo's traditional high-royalty requirements?

If getting heavy back into retro gaming lately has proved anything to me its that visuals mean very little, and fun gameplay is everything.
The problem is that I don't like handhelds, especially ones with an extremely low quality tn panel with a resolution that is far too low for the size of the screen thanks to the whole glasses free 3d thing.

I also never found the thing particularly pleasant to hold, I get cramps from it.

I guess I can't argue, I'm not a fan of handheld gaming either.

Go play AM2R on PC instead. Its awesome.

Took my switch on a plane today. Have to admit playing Mario kart on a flight is pretty awesome. Starting to really like the switch.

I played Zelda during two flights a couple of weeks ago. Switch makes travelling quite a lot more pleasant than I expected. Come to think of it, I've only used my PS4 a couple of times since late May. I already packed other consoles to boxes due to non-use in the summer. The PS4 only earns its place in the living room due to multimedia capabilities now.

I played mine on a long ride to houston , and then back after the flood. i love how fast it charges, or even stays charged well. Played zelda , and then 1-2 switch games in a van full of kids is quite the experience.

I wanted to bring my Switch when we visited the northeast a few months ago, but couldn't because we had a house-sitter, and they wanted to use it

Hmm, seems like buying a SD card for additional storage isn't going to be optional in the future going by more or less all upcoming AAA releasing requiring a 5GB+ data pack download.

Nintendo Switch is next gen?

Is current gen enough?
Doom seems to think so.

Aside from the whole off-screen vs direct capture quality which is skewing the image quality, there is some obvious differences in textures, and lower polygon counts. But otherwise it looks like the Console that I imagined Nintendo to have, something that has *enough* power to run some of the multiplats vs the PS4/Xbone, and not with a last gen vs next gen disadvantage.

Yeah, neat would be the word. Hopefully they sell enough copies to actually spend more money to bring games to the switch that are way more optimized.

It's prolly as optimized as it can get on the platform!

Don't get me wrong, it's amazing they're able to do it at all, and if I had no other way to play the game I'd prolly go for it on Switch.

But for me, the 60fps is a really critical feature. If I can choose any other platform for Doom at 60fps, I'll take that instead of the Switch version. For this game in particular, the 60fps is more important to me than the portability.
