Typical Nintendo….gimmicks, gimmicks, and more gimmicks. How about dropping the gimmicks and making a competent, current-gen game system with a appealing and quality library of 1st and 3rd party titles?

I actually think the Switch had potential, and still does, as a legacy system. It’s the only system that can possibly simulate Wii U and DS/3DS titles, if that ends up being a thing, and I hope for downloadable first party titles from across all of Ninty’s systems with third party support hopefully following suit as the console/handheld hybrid can work for that. However, as a modern system, it just doesn’t work. There just isn’t enough horsepower, and you’d think given that this is Ninty’s second shot at an 8th gen system they’d be able to get it right this… Read more »

What were the gimmicks you saw?

Seriously? It’s much, much faster to list the ways it directly mimics a traditional console — 1: It can plug into a TV 2: ???? 3: Pretty sure that’s it.

Step 1. Make a big event to show off our poorly designed product with limited titles available at launch and have it hosted by people that obviously don’t give a shit about the product.
Step 2. ???
Step 3. Profit

Makes me glad I stopped buying consoles ten years ago.

This video proves that you just can’t make some people happy.

What was the #1 complaint that internet had about the Wii U?

“Dat big clunky tablet, it’s a big, heavy, clunky tablet, OMG so big!!!!”

Get a pro controller, and stop expecting quirky Nintendo to give you dude-bro Turbo-Fuel hype, dog.

Gladly, except that they’re charging $70 for them. From what we know there’s less tech in one of those than in a Steam controller, and those retail for a max of $50. I still get great value from my Wii U Pro controller (I use it to game on PC), and $70 just for a Switch Pro is just too much.

If they were 100% honest about what? Being Japanese and freaking weird? They’re Nintendo for god’s sake. This video doesn’t really. . .provide anything but a bad banana joke. As for the switch — like all Nintendo things it’s weak , and it has loads of gimmicks. I could see this being very popular with pre-teens to young adults in cities. I could see it killing in Asian metropolitan markets. Which is more or less what they seem to be shooting for. It’s more impressive than either the vita or the 3DS, and touts itself as a reasonable console experience.… Read more »

Admittedly, I’m not fully on board with the Switch as of yet. The concept is intriguing, but doesn’t really appeal to me personally as I don’t really have the opportunity to game on the go as I ride my bike everywhere. I could try, but it might prove dangerous. In any case, all I’m thinking about at this point is finally playing the new Zelda on my wiiu come March.

To me, Nintendo doesn’t know when to give up on the flaky casual market. The reveal trailer for the Switch looked promising; it had some casual-looking players, but there was greater emphasis on the hardcore big N fans. The show went the complete opposite. Someone made a comment that really sticks in my mind: the Switch is really just Wii 3, but under a different name to avoid marketing confusion again like the Wii U. Considering the show seemed primarily focused on the motion controls and something as minor as rumble support, I really have reduced confidence for the Switch… Read more »
