So, what do y'all think about Nintendo's soon-to-come console? For me there are some pros and cons.

I like the idea of being able to take the console with you and play it like a handheld on your travels, so that's the biggest plus from me. I'm also glad that Nintendo's finally getting back with true third party support.

Two things bothered me though, only a few of the launch games looked interesting to me. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was, alright I guess, though to me it's a middle finger to the owners of the Wii U version. Second, Nintendo's going with the "pay to play online" route like Sony. I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sure Satoru Iwata would be rolling in his grave over that. Overall since I just recently got another job I may or may not get one, I think I'm just gonna wait until it releases to see what other people's experiences with using the hardware.

So, what are your thoughts on the Switch?

I don't like it.

In the trailers you see people using the stock remotes and then in others people are using gamepads. It's not going to be portable when you need a backpack full of accessories to play games.

The Wii U was not a good seller and now they are essentially doubling down on the concept.

Nintendo needs to stop with the gimmicks and release something with current gen capabilities.

I'm tired of Nintendo's gimmicks. I don't like these motion controls they've been doing, these controllers with screens on it, etc. they should've just stuck to simplicity. Just a regular console with regular controls and an awesome library of games. That's all they really needed. This extra stuff they've been trying to do is unnecessary and has completely turned me off to Nintendo.

i agree about the motion controls, i think there are more consumers that just want the regular controllers than those that don't mind it. i guess if there's one other thing i could go on about is how the next mario game won't show up until late this year, when the last mario platformer was super mario 3d world, which came out three years ago.

I'm so completely out of touch with Nintendo, I think Gamecube's problem competing with the Playstation and Xbox is what caused Nintendo to travel down another road entirely. They're almost stuck now, since it seems a lot of games from the traditional consoles are adult oriented that gamers would be suspicious of a true to form console and Nintendo itself would be awkward. I can't imagine nor do I think I would like to play Gears of War on a Nintendo.


On that note, I'd like to see the Gameboy come back with a built in stabilizing projector so you can play it on the wall and you can easily multiplay with buddies. No downloadable content, no pay services just good old fashioned cartridges.

That would be great! 

Or just make a full-on virtual reality console if they wanna go portable. Virtual Boy 2 coming soon haha

Yeah, I'm very disappointed by the presentation. I really am. Nothing they really showed off has really made things exciting for the Switch. Just Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. That's it.

I hate to say it, but I think the Nintendo Switch is going to fail. None of the games shown have really gotten people excited, and the $300 is not the most enticing offer. Nintendo seems out of touch with what they're going, and if this console fails, Nintendo is pretty much done.

I might still preorder the console. Mainly because at least Zelda will help tide me though other releases. But I don't have a good feeling for the system. I really don't want the console to fail, but they did nothing to make a day 1 purchase enticing.

I'll likely pick this up. I don't buy Nintendo systems thinking they are going to revolutionize the world with graphics or hardware. I've grown to expect a different type of experience with Nintendo's stuff, and I'm okay with it. When I want heavy duty horsepower, I'll go with my Xbox or PS4. I don't need a third beast.

That's fine, but when it costs the SAME PRICE as a PS4 or XBOX1 it is ridiculous

Since I only buy a console once in a blue moon, I don't pay much attention to the price really. But I can understand why someone would be turned off by the price. I'm just not one of those people.
