Well let's not jump to conclusions just yet everyone!


If you honestly think that the Switch is as powerful as either the PS4 or Xbox One, then you're completely delusional. No offense, of course, but it simply cannot be.



So what? I care more about how fun the games are going to be rather than how powerful the machine is. I've actually had an XBox 360 for a while, and I'm kind of struggling to find anything I want to play for the system. Why did I get it then? Fighting games, that's why. Nintendo Consoles don't have a lot of those, and as much as I was begging myself to like Pokken, I just couldn't find it in me. But at the same time, I like just about everything else about the WiiU compared to the competitors more. It has more platformers, more color in its games, more whimsical tones, stuff that I really wish the Microsoft and Sony platforms had more of that they have hardly any of. And honestly, I tend to have more fun with more whimsical games than games that take themselves too seriously. If the Switch has the kind of games I like, then I could care less about how powerful it is.

Well, as people said, in this gen you might as well get a Switch and a good PC if you want the most bang for your buck, unless you're really itching for some MS/Sony exclusives(though with Crash Remasters you don't even need to get the next PS yet). The other consoles are trying to be PCs more than ever while Nintendo just does their own thing, for better or worse.

I'm getting a PS4 before this thing purely for Crash remasters.
I've wanted Warped remake for too long.

And I got my PS4 for Ratchet & Clank... and I don't regret the decision. *shrug*

I meant you can stick to the PS4 because the new version doesn't have much going for it, and until the PS5 gets announced the Switch will probably have a good library, hopefully.

Is it just me, or is the Switch what the Wii U should have been? I don't know if the tech wasn't available in 2012 when the Wii U came out, but I can't help but think that the Switch is what the Wii U was trying to do, for example the portable tablet-like controller instead of this weird hybrid thing that the Wii U was trying to pull off?

Anyway, thank god Nintendo went away from the Wii name. That name has been damaged since 2009.

Why? You don't think they'll come to the Switch? Activision was listed as one of the third-party publishers for the thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if the next game has Switch.

Thank god Nintendo is finally giving up on goofy gimmicky control schemes and instead focusing on a more practical functionality. I've been juggling between my Wii U and 3DS for the past three years and it'll be nice to have it all on one device.

As far as graphics go, I'll be satisfied as long as it's at least somewhat more powerful than the Wii U.

And then not be able to play as Donkey Kong and Bowser? No way Jose!

Edit:
Also, on the subject of the 3DS, there are numerous rumors flying around that Nintendo plans to continue support for the 3DS up until 2018/2019.
It would make sense, since the only reason they're completely dropping and discontinuing the Wii U is because it was a major flop.
The 3DS, on the other hand, has been extremely successful. Now of course "support" could mean just continued production and limited first-party support, but I digress.

You seem to be under the impression that I'm trying to completely discredit the Switch of any possibility of being an innovative, unique, and enjoyable console.
I was merely stating that it won't be as powerful as either the PS4 or Xbox One. (Even if it ends up being a lot closer in power than the Wii U was)
I wasn't speaking about the experience of the console itself, the quality of the games on it, or anything of the like. Purely the power of it, nothing more.

I, for one, am actually quite excited and looking forward to it, so I'm not trying to completely discredit it.
As HIR put it, the PS4 and Xbox One basically try to emulate the experience of PC gaming. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn't always work.
(That said, I really want a PS4 Pro - Though I can certainly see where you're coming from about the lack of more colorful, vibrant games on either the PS4 or Xbox One)

Nintendo, however, is always striving to offer a unique and innovative gaming experience that you can't get while playing on a PC.
Their innovations are what separate them from their competitors, and it is what makes them so great.
(Although sometimes their innovations don't always exactly hit the mark, like the Wii U - Which I do enjoy, but I cannot excuse a lot of its problems)
Nintendo's games are also usually a lot more colorful, or - as you put it - "whimsical", than their competitors as well.

The Switch is already quite innovative by acting as both a home AND handheld console, something of which hasn't been done before in such a way.
This is an amazing idea for multiple reasons. You have people who don't like handheld gaming all that much. So now they can just hook that mother****er up to their TV.
You also have people that prefer handheld gaming. Well guess what? You can take that **** on the go too.

I think that the Switch will be a MAJOR improvement over the Wii U, as it is basically what the Wii U was meant to be, albeit more powerful.
The Switch's innovation may also be almost as great - if not greater - as the Wii's.
However, that said, while I'm sure it can offer fun and unique experiences, that doesn't mean that they shouldn't strive to make their consoles more powerful.

Making a more powerful console doesn't entirely mean or equal to only having more gritty, less colorful games.
(Obviously you can have more of those, but that's not inherently a bad thing whatsoever)
With a more powerful console, you can also make your colorful and whimsical games even more colorful and breathtaking, as well as improve the gameplay experience.

Tl;dr:
So yeah, I wasn't trying to diss the Switch, just merely pointing out that it isn't as powerful as its competitors.
Which isn't necessarily a terrible thing, mind you, but they can do a lot more if they make their consoles more powerful is all I'm saying.

Not really sure wether or not I'll be getting one but...

This is basically the product of the Wii U and 3DS mating and then going ham with some steroids.

^ Ha, that's an interesting way of putting it ... but I agree. X'D
But yeah, doubt I'll be getting one. The last Nintendo thing I got was the 3DS, and too be honest I'm not a fan of most of the Nintendo exclusives so I don't think I'll be missing out, personally.
I really do like the idea of the Switch though, it's a nice change!

In my case I will surely get it because of the fact it's a handeld that you can link to the tv also the new Dragon Quest will launch on it,I m also sure we will get lots of great games especially rpg and maybe I hope a Spyro remaster.

Don't you mean it's a nice switch?
AHAHAHAHAHAHA, HAHAHAHA, haha... ha...

But in all seriousness I think I might wait to get it as a birthday present.

I'm looking forward to this. I know the graphics won't be the best but honestly, if I cared, Explorers of Sky wouldn't be my favourite game.

My birthday is in January, so considering Hanukkah is late this year I'll probably ask for the Switch as a combined late present.

No, because it's very foolish to assume specs from a trailer, supposed to showcase good things about the console and not if it's weaker than X.
