Nice one! I can't wait for the next version describing the "Switch addition", where the guy takes his controller and hooks it up to his glass of beer, or tears his passport into 2, switch-way. ;D The ad stops when the guy tries to slide it on the sides of his girlfriend's T-shirt, zoom on her shocked face, cut.

You've used the NSX more than your PS4!? Lucky you!

Were you one of the people in the promo!?  ;)

Well no, of course not. I wish! LOL! But when Nintendo does promos like this, they deliver.

I actually like what I see of it, although the games it runs will be the biggest deal breaker with me.  I couldn't care less if it ran the ridiculous graphics of the newer XBOX/PS consoles, but if it has good new games (not just ports of good games I already own), then I'm totally down.

I loved being able to multitask with the Wii U controller (especially when doing long grinding sessions in RPGs), so this whole setup would be lovely, especially if I can decide when/if I want to play any games (not just the downloadable ones) on my TV

There's an image in there. I guess it didn't want to load for you.

Hi,

Sorry to butt in.

It seems Nintendo, is still insisting on doing their own thing, as opposed to what Microsoft and Sony are doing.

On one hand, Microsoft and Sony are following the PC market/Steam business model, and so they're getting both their hardware, software and business model closer to the PC. Microsoft will make their games playable on windows 10, Sony has the PSnow thing to play Sony games on PC. Plus their digital sales, deals, indie publishing etc, and now their mid-cycle upgrades for the "power user".

Nintendo on the other hand is following the casual market wherever they go. Seeing how cellphone gaming dominates in japan in terms on sales and revenue, and how it grabbed the casual gaming market all over the world, they've decided to follow that path and combine the best of both worlds, curiously by partnering with none other than nvidia.

Its like the cold war all over again, who will win this arms race? or will they continue to segment the market? I am very curious to see if both business models can coexist, or if one of them will have to evolve to survive. Sony and Microsoft are already talking about the future in a rather "grim" way by saying this might be their last home console.

Does this mean Nintendo will meld with the mobile market given their ever dominance with their handhelds and the recent  rise of the mobile market? or does this mean Microsoft and Sony will meld with the PC market given how PC Desktop technology has evolved into the accessibility it has now for the non-technical hardcore gamer and general user? has Steam set the path for the hardcore market?

What a time to be alive. I would definitely bet on both to succeed.

That is looking like a Switch OFF for Nintendo: the advertisement idea is not good (eSport focus would be good), there isn't a good plan about how well this "portable" will fare on the environment (smartphones can do it), less than six months and still lack proper rumors about specifications...

It is not bad that Nintendo does "its" thing, despite it being a washed Shield from the bottom, the bad thing is plugging a "real" WiiU and still lacking focus in stuff that matters, for nowadays gamers. ;)

off topic: whenever i think of this modern age of gaming, all i can see is CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS ALIEN NEXUS SKELOSUITS 5.

like sci fi FPS with plasma jet packs/guns/grenades has taken over everything. Halo ruined everything.

EDIT: Not even 5 minutes after I posted this, a commercial for COD Infinite Warfare came on. WOOOSH GONNA SLAUGHTER NOOBS WITH MY PLASMA GRENADES

A modern console that you can also play in bed and on the shitter?

I'm ok with this.

I like that! So the unannounced feature is an embedded inflatable Kamen Rider costume?

Looks good, I'm disappointed that US isn't getting King of Fighters 98 though, just about my only gripe with the early lineup I guess.
Switches are having problems with controller sync though, might be a deal breaker for some if not fixed.

I'm hoping to find one by Christmas time, but considering Nintendo's long tradition of underproducing along with my unwillingness to pay scalpers 3 times what the thing is worth, I'm not sure if that'll happen.  :laugh:
I had a hell of a time finding a DS when I decided to get one 2 years after they launched.
