This actually has a lot of promise if it manages to be both a good console and tablet. Tablet sales have struggled in recent years, but surveys show that people are interested in them for the larger screen, but people that already own one feel there is no reason to replace them because they don't run a lot of intensive processes on them and people that don't own tablets find that they don't have the features , app support, spec and etc. that they want from them. So I think Nintendo might have struck a gold mine with this. There is of course a lot of unanswered questions that might change this, but it looks good thus far. (I just hope the switch has a alternative button layout for us that love the Wii pro controller layout)

We have Sony and Microsoft for typical consoles.

I always wonder that myself because when you see the Switch video it's showing off all o these interesting mobile applications which are cool but honestly If I had one, 90% of time is going to be set up in front of a tv with me sitting on a sofa. But then I think, it'd be difficult for them to go head to head with playstation and xbox for those types of just sit down and play systems so maybe it's a good thing their going in full bar into being innovative and different and cornering a different market while still rducing a system that can be sat down in front of a TV and still produce games for the many classic franchises we love.

I'm with you, Nintendo has done some pretty dumb and gimmicky stuff lately, but this one has some potential.

It's going to crash and burn if the tablet is built like garbage and easily breaks. This thing better be built to handle many falls.

Making a console which is in large part made to be a good environment for local multiplayer? Seems like the best thing since the N64. The marketing also interesting. count the number of children in the reveal video. It aims at adults prety hard, which i see as a real positive sign. Cartridge based system cuts down on load/install times (which is one of the biggest sins of 7th and 8th gen consoles)
It's not looking to be a graphical powerhouse, but aiming for the 1080p@60 fps is very much in line with what people have in their homes, and aiming higher is probably not cost-effective.
The only big negative i see is if the price leaks from earlier this week are true (299$ basic, 399$ for "all the stuff you actually want/need), which is the same as the other consoles in the market. Even if it was the best on price & Price/performance, the WiiU lost, and going into the same price as Sony and MS would be a risky move.
The other is that we end up with upscaled tablet-games, instead of downscaled console-games.
Both are too early to say anything about.

They're marketing their consoles as family all-in-one entertainment instead of aiming for guys in the teens/twenties like Microsoft and Sony

The WiiU provides something the PC don't, unlike P4 or Xbone. Perhaps it should be even better, but 2nd best ain't bad.

The only thing the Wii U provides something that PC doesn't is Splatoon.

Fuck that. We already have PC and two consoles that do exactly the same thing as PC. We need weird gimmicky shit. Every notable evolution in gaming hardware could be considered a gimmick at first. Maybe it'll flop, and maybe it won't. Doesn't mean they shouldn't try.

I think not every innovation is good, I would rather finally have dildo controllers than this.

#78 - kevinenter (7 hours ago) [-]
Of course not every innovation is good, that doesn't mean they should stop trying. why would you want the same console over and over again?

the biggest problem nintendo has had is getting a large library of games behind their recent consoles
#76 - crosknight (7 hours ago) [-]
They actually did take time to get 3rd party support this time.
Also heard it supports unreal engine 4

All these logos mean nothing thus far. a lot of these companies have released for Nintendo in the past, but a lot of it was either poor ports, mobile games, Nintendo origianl titles or strange niche gimmicky titles that no one liked.
#115 - mrhandss (3 hours ago) [-]
do you not remember the wii u's initial marketing? they promised they would get all the big 3rd party games the competition had, but all the system ever got was a handful of ps3/360 ports. Most of them arrived several months later or missing features that picture means jack shit as do any promises ANY of these companies make until we're at least 1 year into the system.

it may seem dumb to ever talk about power when it comes to consoles, but it genuinely does matter. from what we know about the Switch's hardware, it's not going to even be close to what the ps4 and xbox one can do right now. It's seriously just a tablet that comes with a dock and gamepad accessory. the ONLY thing that will keep the far majority of these companies around and supporting this new release is going to be sales, which are a hit or miss when it comes to Nintendo.

The wii u had dogshit software sales for anything that was made directly by Nintendo. I'd say this likely wouldn't change this time around, but it might for one big reason. Since portability is a large focus with this thing, it might eventually replace 3ds in addition to the wii u. if it does and it gets the handheld market nintendo easily dominates, we'll probably see plenty of releases on it just like the 3ds gets.

We've already seen Skyrim on it in the trailer. These companies wouldn't get their names put on if they didn't expect to put something out. Nintendo has clearly learned that gimmicks have a limit with the Wii U, I think they are going for an extended support of this new system.

#126 - hallofc (2 hours ago) [-]
Bethesda when asked refused to confirm that they where bringing Skyrim to the Switch. This might mean that they are currently porting it and plans are to follow through with it, but that they might as well decide to drop the project if they hit a road block.

nintendo is the only one company who dared to innovate. after the SNES, everything was unique. N64 was tight AF. they had the first portable consoles. Wii had first motion controls. Wiiu had a screen and a controller in one. it's innovation, and even though sometimes the gimmicks might flop at first (virtualboy) it comes back as something great, albeit not by nintendo (HTC vive, oculus rift etc.)

Sega did a bit of innovation while it was still around in the console market.

#79 - kevinenter (7 hours ago) [-]
Exactly. That's why I think it's important for them to keep trying new things.

#54 - brantod (9 hours ago) [-]
well i feel it does because if they fail much more they'll end up like Sega, Making a console is a big investment and if you don't make the money back your going to stop making consoles. I do appreciate that at least someone is trying something new though
User avatar
#59 - kevinenter (9 hours ago) [-]
What do you mean "if they fail much more"? The Wii U wasn't great, but it's not like it flopped entirely. It still got mostly favorable reviews and sold decently. One somewhat bad system doesn't mean they should tuck their tails and run.
Other than the three you named, wireless controllers, blu-ray drives, and internal storage come to mind.

Can you name some 'notable evolution in gaming hardware'. on the PC front its pretty much the same stuff, maybe the optical mouse. For console i can only think the joysticks and DVDs. maybe digital download for both sides aswell.

In 1976, Fairchild Semiconductors, released the Fairchild Channel F, which was the first console capable of reading game data off of external ROM.

what's a "normal" console? They've been gimmicks for decades. Are you talking about the glorified DVD players made by Sony and MS?

I felt like if you really knew the story of the game the events like malgus's lady friend dying and him just kind of "meh"ing it and of course jedi chick's master dying (can't think of her name but shes the one that went on to become grand master) were pretty emotional. And of course the one with the two brothers. I dunno this one just didn't hit me the same way.
