The Switch is an incredible device. It is more than likely to take away PS4 and Xbox marketshare.

Mario games are quite different. 2d, 3d, with a water gun, in space with various gameplay elements, 4 player 2d mario (super fun), with a hat he can jump on, tennis, mario party, football (soccer), etc.
You see where I'm going with this?
It's always a new way to play, and it's fun! you're just complaining for no reason. You want your explosions and murder that looks realistic. We have true computer games for that. I don't want to play fallout 4 on a console, nor any first person or third person game where you need to aim.
Nintendo made aiming easy with the Wiimotes and joycons btw.

And the Switch is the fisrt console of this generation. Maybe 4K for the On-The-Go mode is useless and will just wat your battery, but the TV mode should have 4K support.

What's a UCB-C? Is it different than USB-C? Universal Cereal Bus?
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2017I don't know where you got that info but the games are going to be priced at $60 like everyone... moreSorry, I meant in CAD. We get all your stuff but in more expensive variants.
Kanto, 13 Jan 2017Sad really sad it should be 1080p at least for that screen size and price.Actually it's 720 > 1080 But im not sure though havent fully read the Specs of its

Expensive, better just buy a tablet if u already owned the ps4 or xbox one.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2017Another pathetic console from Nintendo again!For you yes, and for me yes, but for the targeted buyer groups its awesome. This is the only console grandma want to give for xmas, family friendly, gore free and safe
Based on what Nintendo says on it's website, games cost now 80$, no 4K support and the little things you can attach the system with are even more advanced Wii Motion Plus controllers. The system is cheap but the games are way too expensive.
kgptzac, 13 Jan 2017Will buy if can sideload Play Store and run Android games.It seems it will have a Tegra chipset (likely the X1 or the new one). You may be able to use exploits and install Android TV (or the official Nvidia Shield firmware, or just plain Android), but I don't think it will be Android-based. Android has at least 10 exploits patched a month, with critical vulns like Stagefright giving access to root easily. Nintendo hates vulns. Just for the 3DS, they taken down full games of the online store instead of patching the system (which they did after, but still haven't brought back). This is sad, since Android would raise the system's value sharply.
Raphi7, 13 Jan 2017Maybe its a tipping erroeIt is. I just wanted to make fun of that. They already did the UST-C, which means Universal Serial Thing.
The thing is Nintendo have always had this thing about family entertainment. And if they didn't change when they realised families dont really play video games then there not going to change now.
It looks like an oversized hand held with tv out and only a 720p screen. Nothing to shout home about.
