Its weird man. None of the youtube channels i follow are talking about it or showing any footage. Its kind of hard to care about a new console when you never hear about it.

Don't care.

Just bought a Wii U and every game except Sm4sh is severely underwhelming, idk why I'd buy another console that already is relying on ports of games I've already played on other system(s)

I'm not excited at all but I know I"m gonna pick one up just for Zelda. Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword were what drew me to the first Wii, and the lack of a main series zelda is why I skipped the Wii U. The first Wii did end up having a surprisingly decent library in the end. it was just hard to notice while it was still active, 90% of the library is shovelware. I haven't heard about any shovelware issues on the Wii U but >>692008 is right the library looks really underwhelming. The only important first party games for it were Smash4 and mario kart 8. Oddly the 3ds library is great but that thing's eshop is riddled with shovelware.

I expect the Switch to either be just as underutilized as the Wii U and sell as poorly, or be pic related. no inbetween.

'All niggas crazy. Wii U had a ton of excellent exclusives. More than the X1 and PS4 for the first few years of their lifespan. Assuming you weren't a faggot causal playing multiplats on anything but a PC like god intended of course. Tropical Freeze, Bayo 2, 3D World, Hyrule Warrior, Xenoblade, Mario Maker, Yoshi's WW, Toad Treasure Tracker, and that's not even getting into awesome e-shop exclusives like Affordable Space Adventures. If you have a PC like any self-respecting gamer should, Nintendo consoles are perfect complement. Switch is gonna be tight, especially if Nvidia gets on board with its in home streaming client. Portable Steam machine yo.

Besides being a general faggot with an evident dearth of legitimate things to feel proud about, you didn't even name any of those "excellent exclusives." So, like what? Besides Sm4sh obviously.

Yeah, the paid online thing sucks but it's not really surprising that they're wanting to follow the model that Sony and Microsoft are going by. I think of it as Nintendo trying to play catchup with their online stuff. Which is fine by me, because Nintendo consoles haven't really had a good online component thus far and the Switch could change that, even if I do have to pay for the service.

They were coy about it. There were some rumors it was delayed, but then the original leaker said it was back on track.

Breath of the Wild is a system seller. That fucking trailer, holy shit. Also full (non-Link) voice acting, finally. Super lame that Mario is going to miss launch though. Zelda and Mario together would've been a dream. Fire Emblem Warriors is a perfect followup to Hyrule Warriors, and DQ1+2 is going to have that itch scratched for a long time. DQ X and XI will probably be localized eventually, so that's cool. Splatoon 2 is going to be great, but I'm hoping there's a much more fleshed out single player experience before I jump back in, especially if online is going to require a sub. Xenoblade 2 looks awesome. Octo Traveler is a ridiculous name for a game, but the art style looked super pretty. I'm not really a big SMT fan, but that's going to be cool whenever it actually gets developed. Not really feeling 1-2 Switch or ARMS, but it's good to have something like Wii Sports for casual party play. Would've liked to see at least a few other longtime staples like Metroid, Pokemon, or Animal Crossing make an appearance, but at least there's still that rumored HD port of Sun and Moon to look forward to. Day one nigga.

Nintendo fanboys are so annoying, I don't know if they outright lie to protect their favorite company or are just really that ignorant, I'm seeing people saying you can't see the difference between 720 and 1080 on a 6" screen, which is completely false. Phones and tablets have been 1080 standard for years yet nintendo is selling you a product at a price where you should expect 1080 but only giving 720. The battery life is terrible, expect to play for 2 hours and then the battery will die. My phone lasts 2 full days on one charge and I play games on it all through the day.

Thankfully now that the hype is over and details are being confirmed I'm seeing a lot of people finally coming to their senses and saying that the switch will fail, which it will. If you're so excited for the switch, first of all I'm sorry your standards are so low, secondly just wait for the revised version of the switch to come out, Like Nintendo has always been doing for their handhelds. Don't waste your money on the shit first version of it, you're paying for a portable machine that isn't portable, unless the product you wanted to carry around with you is a drained battery piece of hardware.

People said the same thing about the Mini NES, but look how that turned out. It was also an inferior piece of hardware made redundant by the fact that you can emulate NES games on pretty much everything, but they sure didn't seem to have any trouble selling the fucking things.

The Switch is gonna sell like hotcakes. I'm not expecting Wii numbers out of it, but it's very unlikely the Switch will be a failure. They're marketing it well, the hype is there based on the games people have seen, and its USP is more substantial and interesting than the Wii U's. It's pretty much ticking all the boxes, outside of your battery life complaint, which you inexplicably believe will sink the whole fucking thing.

And it's not like I'm some Nintendo fanboy either. Pretty much everything past the SNES has hit below standard, for me personally. But if you really think the Switch will fail, then well... I just hope you're not playing the stock market, bud.

I'm no economist, but I'd say the MiniNES's "retro factor" far outweighs the Switch's "new thing" factor.

Seems like it will mostly sell to children, I'd be surprised if it's markedly more successful than the Wii U.

Which is a fair point. But my point was that even when the Switch debuts itself as an inferior piece of hardware, it's not going to make that much of a dent in its sales.

>I'd be surprised if it's markedly more successful than the Wii U
I'd be incredibly surprised if it weren't. The Wii U was marketed laughably bad and it had a decided lack of third party support, with word of developers jumping ship before the thing even launched. So far they've done a fine job with marketing the Switch. And I'm not saying the Switch's third party support is fantastic either, but I'd say it's a definite improvement and shows more promise for the future of the console than the Wii U ever did.

The presentation yesterday was pretty bland and it's very easy to shit on Nintendo right now, but honestly it's too early to tell. It's all about the games that they have lined up and so far they only showed us a handful, but if it has proper dev support it might not be a failure.

>>692182
>how do they keep making the exact same mistakes??
They kind of don't. It looks like they really focused on handhelds last gen which I think explains the lack of love for the WiiU from developers. With this consolidation of the two markets, I think they'll have much more more attention from developers and publishers and it might actually have a ton of games in a couple of years. Also Nintendo more or less doesn't give a shit about the western market and has always done what they thought would do well in Japan.

With that said, the only game they showed that I'm even a little bit excited for is the new Legend of Zelda and it looks like the WiiU version will be exactly the same.

Konami accomplished the very easy task of not fouling up Bomberman. And they made it look real nice too, with lighting and depth of field effects up the hole. They emphasized in-game currency for continues and cosmetic unlocks, so I hope there's a ton of Metal Gear stuff in just to really rub it in. Maybe the Fatman and The Pain as unlockable characters.

Don't you try to cast a spell on me, you witch. What does no base mean? It doesn't mean anything! Also I personally couldn't care less about which console outsells another, it's not directly tied to how good the games are. Gamecube and Wii are a good example.

Nintendo has a pretty solid track record of going against the Western grain when it comes to designing their consoles. We just happen to like what they're selling and are a much, much bigger country with more people playing video games.

I had this conversation with a friend of mine. We were really stoned and it kind of fucked with us. It started with the differences between JRPG's and WRPG's.

I ended up concluding that there is no real Western identity in video games.

The Japanese companies all steamroll the Western ones - Even Microsoft is releasing Japanese software for their hardware.

It's just weird to think about. Japan simply has a huge pull in console gaming. So much so that it bordered on a monopoly in the late 90's. It is undeniable.

Western games are almost exclusively on the PC. Even Bethesda and Bioware lean towards the PC for their releases.

And then you have Steam...

Nintendo also made a lot of subtle changes to their systems over time.
The NES, in the West, at least, had the front-loader and the top-loader.

SNES had a few chip revisions going from the two-chip to the one-chip, then the SNES mini, which did things like removing RGB output out of the box... which was strange since it still has an RGB amp on the motherboard.

N64 had a few revisions that changed the video output chip, I believe, adding a fine pitch DAC chip, and the coloured shell versions and Pikachu versions further changed the motherboard layouts.

GameCube removed the digital out port over time as well.

GameBoy advance had at least three major revisions. DS had several - 3DS too.

Wii gradually removed GameCube support, and then the weird little red Wii mini thing was released.

Most of these changes, besides the obvious external ones, were all done under the hood. Almost every console has done it. PS1 had about a million revisions that changed various chips and so-on. The major ones included removing various ports, moving the location of the laser assembly and modifying it so it didn't warp, and removing the RCA audio/video output and leaving only the multi-out.

Besides Zelda, there's not a lot else to play at launch that I'm interested in, which is disappointing as an early adopter. But the launch lineup of any console, empirically speaking, usually doesn't matter. There's no solid research that I'm aware of where the quantity or quality of launch titles has ever predicted the overall financial success of a console over its lifespan. It's far more important to look at what's available in the Holidays. Mario is a good sign, and depending on how many of the other games teased at the reveal are on shelves come December, the Switch will probably be in a pretty comfortable place.

Pick one. I'll assume you meant a PC. And if you have a PC, a high powered gaming tablet/handheld is a good complementary purchase. Especially when hackers get their hands on it and homebrew Steam streaming into it.

The only objectively good console launch in the last two generations was PS4. Every other console worked uphill to get as good as they are now, Wii U notwithstanding.

I've paid for online with a console, and now there's not a free option for online gameplay. The switch has the most upcoming games I want to play online, so its kind of a no brainer. Sure, I don't like that they decided to charge for the online. But the lineup looks solid, and I want to have some fun.

I look forward to laying in bed (gonna have to have the system charging while I do like I did with the wii u) and playing splatoon, smash and mario kart all online. That's gonna be nice

Wouldn't it have to be post-Windwaker, or a branch of that timeline? I see Koroks, and there's references to an "Ancient Sea" apparently.

Ok but Nintendo are essentially charging you money for doing nothing. They, along with their competitors think its ok not only to sell you a game at a high price but also charge you a yearly fee to play it with your friends. It really pisses me off that even Nintendo are doing it now. Its such a sleazy way of making revenue off the loyality of their fans.

>what are SD cards?

I'd rather not have an extra $50 tacked onto the price just to have a larger SD card pre-installed, when pretty much everyone already has half a dozen of the things floating around the house anyway. External storage, SSDs, and memory cards are dirt cheap these days and most people already have them in abundance anyway, I have no idea why people would rather pay an inflated $/GB storage premium added onto the price of a console for bigger storage, when you can buy it cheaper yourself, or just use what you likely already own anyway.

Eh, I pre ordered one. I haven't even bought a new console since my PS3 and that was at launch. Haven't even really been into games since MGS5 retconned my fucking childhood. If I really wanted to get back into "traditional" gaming at this point I'd probably just build a cheap PC and download Steam. This will be my first Nintendo console since SNES even (was a Sony fanboy since PSX).

I know what I'm buying. It's a tegra based tablet with some gaming oriented modular components. The docking station is just common sense. (Funny thing is Neo Geo sort of had this idea years ago with their Neo Geo X). Personally I can see the value in being able to move around my house with my gaming platform in the same manner I can with a tablet. But at the same time being able to play on a TV with a proper controller if I so choose. 720 doesn't bother me either, I saw the specs I would never expect amazing things from Nintendo in terms of hardware performance. Other reason I'm getting one is hey, it's got Nintendo developing for it. Zelda right off the bat, Mario at some point in the foreseeable future, possibly a Metroid and Super Smash Bros maybe, and I know Mario Kart is a rerelease but it'll be new to me so :p. I'm sure there'll be other good games too. If the install base is high enough I don't see why 3rd parties wouldn't develop for it like some people are afraid of. Games are hella expensive to make and maximizing potential customers just seems logical.

we're deffo getting a pokemon game according to game freak. I kinda think etrian's cartography stuff would get tedious without a second screen though. Come to think of it the 3ds was more or less built for first person dungeon crawlers. Would have been great to have Legend of Grimrock SMT or Wizardry on that shit. Though I have a hunch that SMT trailer for Nintendo means we're getting remakes/ports of 1 and 2 on 3ds and 3 and 4 on switch.

Same boat. I preordered one just for Zelda. Mario Odyssey looks fun, but holy shit I hope they up the graphical specs (purely technical, the art direction seems fine) before launch. Looks like Sonic Adventure Battle 2 on the GC.

Also Retro need to get off their asses and make another console Metroid. It's time.

he seems against it at first but he's gushing over most of the features after a while. He seemed especially happy about all the first party games emphasizing 60fps.

It's the only way to play new Mario and Zelda games which I hold in much higher regard than Assassin's Creed and what not. And I got a good enough job $300 won't break me.

Worth keeping in mind not only is it a good way to make money on youtube to be a cry man who hates everything, Nintendo heavily polices lets plays, so the worst thing that could happen to a lot of these guys would be for a nintendo console to hit huge.

Also given how many of them had non disclosed partnerships with the xbox one at launch and continue to do their best not to disclose sponsored content why would you give a fuck about what any of them say?

If you want to talk specifically portable media, the newest revision of USB drives support up to 10Gbps read times and the previous gen supports 5Gbps (which is 6x as fast as a microSD) 100MBps might have been considered "fast" 10 years ago but the times have changed and sadly, Nintendo has proven once again they're incapable of changing with them.

The PS4 at launch came with a 500GB SATA2 HTS545050A7E380 HDD, with an average read speed of 76.9 MB/s

Also the PS4, a console that launched in 2013, used SATA 2 and not SATA 3 for some reason. You could upgrade to SSD if you want but the improvements don't add up to as much as you'd think for most games.

that is so weird considering they let you transfer 3DS data easily, and I'm pretty sure you can transfer over your DSi store games. Then again their portable department has always been smarter, that's why they rolled them into the console department. That's why they were smart enough to make a system with a gimmick people might actually use and have a killer app at launch this time around. I imagine the switch will be less restrictive than the wii u.

Ha, that's great.

I've got mine pre-ordered, along with the Master Edition Zelda. Probably gonna take that week off.

The launch day value proposition of the Switch probably doesn't seem very compelling on its own if you already own a Wii U, since Zelda is essentially the only new killer app. But you have to remember that most people don't own a Wii U anyway, so Zelda, Bomberman, Sniperclips (which is supposed to be a surprise hit) and Mario Kart 8 in the first month or two of launch isn't actually too sparse of a lineup relative to similarly weak launch lineups of the other consoles that have gone on to be successful (PS4 for example). Come Holiday 2017 when most consumers are going to actually give a damn, the lineup should look pretty compelling with Zelda, Skyrim (old and overpriced, but the prospect of portability is still going to be a big draw), Mario Kart, Sniperclips, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario, and possibly Octopath, Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade 2, Disgea 5, Sonic Mania, Minecraft, a ton of Dragon Quest, etc. Especially if you're looking at the Japanese market, where some of those franchises are ridiculously popular. If you own a Wii U, early adoption probably won't be worth it. If mine wasn't in another city, I would probably be holding off too. If you skipped the Wii U however, early adoption might be worth it depending on how excited you are for Zelda and a "new to you" Mario Kart (which if you aren't dead inside, should be: fairly). Come the holidays, and baring some high profile delays which is always a possibility, I think there probably won't be much reason to hold off unless you're chronically allergic to fun, or think shitting on anything bright and colorful makes you a mature contrarian badass. It's still far to early to pronounce the Switch as DOA on account of a moderately, but not unprecedentedly, weak launch lineup, and some admittedly over-priced accessories. $90 for a charging and cooling dock is ludicrous, and I'm baffled that they didn't announce a ~$200 SKU that foregoes it, and the grips, entirely. $80 for the Joycons isn't terrible considering the sophistication of the kit. But $70 for the Pro doesn't make much sense to me unless it also incorporates a lot of the motion and rumble tech of the joycons. But again, a few early stumbles isn't enough to sink the whole deal, especially given the huge amount of potential a super powered Nintendo portable (or modestly powered home console depending on your usage scenario) has.

How reliable will SD cards be for gaming though? Read speeds are all well and good (I actually didn't mind Bloodborne's pre-patch load times, just gave me time to smoke a bowl in between deaths), but the worst, I mean the absolute WORST bug in any game is save corruption. Totalbiscuit made a point about SD cards wearing out relatively quickly under intensive use, just curious if there's any merit to this.

Maybe we'll be able to keep the game data on the card and save data on the internal 32g? Somehow I doubt it.

What kind of Jenk have you been huffing? The games don't come on SD cards so using a USB drive for expandable storage has no bearing on the cost of games. Not that it matters since USB 3.0 drives are approximately the same price as their microSD counterpart so it's not even like that would cost extra money in the grand scheme of things.

Seriously, Nintendo could easily make custom USB drives that plug into the switch flush and look like they belong and sell them at a considerable profit margin. USB drives cost cents to manufacture and they could easily get away with selling a 64GB drive for at least $50 to their lunatic fanbase.

as long as you don't buy a shitty one from a shitty brand or that isn't class 10 you'll be fine for a good while. at least just being used on a portable game console. you'll probably have to replace it some day, but maybe not during the lifetime of the console like some commentators believe. Considering how fast games load on 3DS I'm not worried about that either. The old wii was terrible about SD card support, requiring a separate menu for games on the SD card and loading much slower than usual, booting them slow as well. but they have the portable team helping run the show now so the switch shouldn't have issues like that.

Regarding no. 12 why the fuck are you so disingenuous? We're discussing removable storage you fuck wit, you aren't gonna be downloading games on the switch to a fucking blu ray. SD cards are slow, you are fighting an objectively losing battle here, considering you chose the fastest SD card I'm gonna choose one of the fastest SSDs, which you get about 3300mb/s. Your crappy 100mb/s doesn't seem so great now does it faggot? But considering I'm not a disingenuous little cunt like you, I'll go for a more fairer 500mb/s which is FIVE TIMES FASTER than your crappy little SD card, considering games these days are 30gb and UP which would you prefer? The dinosaur Nintendo switch or something at least 5x faster? Idiot. Enjoy your load times. Nintendo is out of touch and ripping their customers off by giving cheap ancient hardware (at the cost you would expect new and top tier hardware) so they can make extra money, you should NOT be sticking up for these practices, but you nintendo fanboys could never admit nintendo do anything wrong, you're fucking morons and you can only blame yourself for Nintendo constantly failing and being a laughing stock in the video game community.

The dock should definitely include a USB3 for external drives though.

My music collection is real fucked up from teh time my hard drive died and I had to retrieve it from an SD card.

It's like a scratched record with some of my tracks, except with jarring garbled digital tones. The Switch is gonna need to redownload its games whenever the storage starts to get corrupted and eventually dies.

That's why SD cards are used for transient data storage like photos, videos and a mobile copy of your music collection. It's really misapplying the technology.

With the focus on being able to remove the Switch on demand, any external drives connected to the dock would probably have to be strictly for backups and changing out data between SD cards. It looks like they're really pushing for cartridges to be the main storage medium, because Nintendo fans like hard media, and I'm more than fine with that because it means less downloading and installing and waiting for loading I have to do.

it's overly expensive because it has an amiibo sensor and the motion sensors from the side controllers. The price makes sense at that point, but you have to wonder how much you're actually going to use either of those features. It would be nice if they made a cheaper version without all that shit for 40. who even uses motion controls on a traditional gamepad anyways? On the ps3 that just amounted to shaking the controller in some games, and the wii u's use of it ruined starfox zero's controls.

Personally I always avoid the cloud whenever possible but it is convenient whenever it doesn't eat your data whole.

As far as SD card reliability goes, sure they die, but so does all media. And flash memory in general has only been getting tougher, faster, and cheaper and will continue to over time. SD cards aren't nearly as bad now as they were a decade ago when we were trying to figure out which one to get for our R4s. Studies last year show that more than constant usage, it's just age that kills drives, which is also improving as the technology matures. Just back up your stuff regularly like you should be doing already no matter what you're using for primary storage.

No, SD cards are much worse. The average Switch owner is going to replace an SD card over the console's life. If Nintendo's online service doesn't include save backups, are going to lose their damn saves in addition to their downloads.

You KNOW Nintendo might still fuck this up.

Even cheap TLC SSDs aren't more likely to die than a hard drive unless you drop one in a datacenter. But you don't even have to do anything to an SD card to get it to start failing, just keep reading it and odds are it'll start to go to shit eventually. Why?
They're absolutely tiny, they contain a bitchload of data for their size and they are always mounted in some hot device while running.

One user put expectancy at 1M (1,000,000) hours which is about 228 years, however another put it at 1-3 months. It's going to depend on how heavily the Switch's file-system uses them (which we won't know until the damn thing is released), and where the card was procured from/who it was manufactured by.

If your point is that data degrades on physical medium over time, then no shit it does. it would be unreasonable to expect it not to. However your assumption that the Switch is going to be eating cards like doritos kinda gives people the wrong impression of what SD is as a storage medium.

Like the link I posted says, it depends on the file-system that is using the card, plus operating temperatures, plus manufacturer, plus the actual hardware doing the reading/writing.

Nice one not linking any specs about your phone that supposedly corupted this file and expecting people to just take your word for it though.
What specific phone was it?
When did you buy it?
What was it's uptime per day/week?
At what percentage did you charge the battery when you thought it was getting low?
How long did you charge it for?
What's the history of the handset itself (breakages/repairs/been through the washing machine/etc.)?
What specific operating system did it use?
What specific flash card did you use?

My point is that all these factors go into how long an SD card will last But we can't know how the Switch will perform with them yet because IT HASN'T BEEN RELEASED YET.

>If your point is that data degrades on physical medium over time, then no shit it does.

I dunno, hard drives are better if you don't whack them. The ones that don't die from early mechanical failure last ages.
The write-cycle on an SD card or other flash media is inherently more physically damaging. Higher temperature, higher resistance = more damage with every write.

>Nice one not linking any specs about your phone that supposedly corupted this file and expecting people to just take your word for it though.
Just take the anecdote for what it is. I used it in 3 different phones 1 upgrade, 1 change of carrier, 3 years. If it just means you've gotta re-download your games it's meh.

>My point is that all these factors go into how long an SD card will last But we can't know how the Switch will perform with them yet
Sure. And hell the switch might even put the SD slot more than 5 millimeters from the SD slot, unlike most phones.
The thing that makes SD cards so handy in our consumer electronics world is that the shit on them actually isn't that important, Video games, dick pics, what was supposed to be the second copy of my music collection.

>>692739
It definitely does. That's excellent news. I was briefly afraid of Nintendo being so out of touch as to trust an SD card with something important, like your game saves or your Tom Brady dick pic collection. You gotta make sure to back that up on your internal NAND so you can share them with your grandchildren some day.

Nintendo's been using SD since Wii and only seriously so starting with DSi and there have been very few reports about Nintendo consoles eating the SD card whole. Save data always goes there last if they can help it for that exact reason. That and worries of people hacking save files because that's apparently a big issue for Pokémon tournaments and things like that.

They could afford to offer a lot more classic virtual console games. Access to a nice sized library of NES/SNES hits for subscribing to their online service would carry the console through its first year handily.

But they're being total assholes about it. One game a month that you don't get to keep. It's like they're such conservative businessmen that they can't even fathom the easy ways they could ensure greater success.

I think people are just bothered by the absurdity of it. That's the only perk of Nintendo's online service and you don't even get to keep the games when you could just download the same exact rom in an instant. The only virtual console games worth owning to begin with are N64 (which dont emulate well at all) and some games that were newly localized or edited for virtual console release. I honestly though it was a joke at first, do they really think that's a prime selling point?.

Besides that, I have a strong feeling that the Switch's online multiplayer will be about as slow, barebones, and restrictive as it was for the Wii, Wii U, and 3DS, and not even worth 5 dollars. Lucky for me I only give a damn about their single player and couch-multiplayer games and have high hopes for them. I don't expect nintendo to monumentally fuck up zelda and mario the way they did metroid and starfox.

Yes, this is an old article, but does anyone else think that because of micro$hits dicketry in slowly gimping Steam in an effort to push its own games store, coupled with the fact that they own the licence for DirectX, means that they are also simultaneously pushing developers to use it instead of OpenGL for games thus gimping the performace on the Switch?

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2016-nintendo-nx-mobile-games-machine-powered-by-nvidia-tegra

"Typically speaking, OpenGL games port really well to Tegra X1, while DirectX ports, like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and the recently released Resident Evil 5, aren't so impressive."

The Hyrule Warriors season pass was fucking excellent, but besides the last pack, that all sounds like shit that should've been in day one. I'm not opposed to a season pass, but based on the content teased, it should be half that price. They need more details on the extent of the new content to justify that MSRP. What do you want to bet the map "enhancement" is just going to be something that highlights collectibles, like every sandbox game basically does anyway? The Cave of Trials has been something that has been standard since at least Windwaker, so it better do something pretty damn original like a horde mode, procedural floor generation, or daily challenges. Actually, just typing that out makes it sound like Binding of Zelda, which would really be amazing, and now I'm really hoping that's what they do. The new story dungeon better be huge or part of a sizable new area.

I'm not too tore up though, since by all indications the base game is going to be huge anyway, and well worth the price of admission without the pass. If it ends up lackluster, at least there's Mario Odyssey to make the holidays more hype.

yeah, I never understood the whole shitfest surrounding a female protagonist in Zelda. It's like crying about why <insert well known character here> isn't the opposite gender in <insert well known franchise here>. My point being it's ridiculous to shoehorn in "affirmative action" type changes when the lore has already established to be a certain way. It's like when that god-awful fanfiction Twilight turned vampires retarded.

Because these people hyped themselves up and believed that Link would be female in Breath of the Wild. You can thank all of the gaming "journalists" out there for that one as well. They threw up article after article about "Is Link a female in Breath of the Wild". Seriously they would not shut the fuck up about it and thus everyone just assumed that Link would be female. Then Nintendo said "lol fuck off Link is always a male" and everyone threw their typical temper tantrums because they didnt get what they wanted.

All because one or two rumormongers of questionable integrity decided it would be nice if Link was female for once without any regard for what the developers might think. And then there's that one guy who mods past games to make Link female by changing the text a few places and is weirdly super militant about it to anyone who so much as mentions the possibility or the news on Twitter. Makes you want to oppose it just to stick it to people like them.

Speaking of Zelda, the review embargo is over and according to basically everyone, it's good. Shame about that issue with the left stick, though.

I can forgive the lack of netflix but not having a web browser is pretty dumb. No VC games is a weird move as well. The wii, wii u, and 3ds all launched with VC games available and had more coming out every week. Not everybody emulates. The Switch is ideal for virtual console too. If they were smart they'd be on that shit right now. there's a lot of gamecube games that would sell well on the switch too. Games like Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and Animal Crossing would be perfect for the platform and are much bigger brands now than when they originally came out.

Real men use Kodi or Plex anyway, and I've already got half a dozen devices within reach for media and web browsing, so whatever. The basic apps will be rolled out soon enough, and anyone who signed up to be an early adopter knew what they were getting into anyway. I'd be bummed about the VC if the VC wasn't terrible anyway. If Nintendo was smart they would've introduced paid online as part of a subscription service that offers free streaming of NES/SNES games, and access to later consoles' titles a la carte, but Kimishima wont return my calls so they'll just have to live without my genius ideas for making billions of dollars.

One thing similar between all 3 of the console's launch titles is that there is only 1 or 2 games that everyone was expecting to get while the rest was niche. I don't see how the Switch's is any worse. I mean is this the mindset people have since Steam? does everyone desire market saturation now days?

Not having multimedia support isn't a big deal since there's other consoles and set top boxes, smart TVs and shit for that. No VC though? I'm surprised they aren't but they'll probably add it in due time and just focus on the Switch games they got now.

There are actually a lot of decent games that don't require subscription to play online, at least on PS4. I like Star Trek Online and Planetside 2, and World of Tanks and Onigiri are two other popular options.

The PS4 MMO exception is not a strong argument for exploitative consumer hostile practices. Especially when they can bankroll the thing with a proprietary appstore.

I also consider MMOs unplayable on console, for obvious reasons.

Pretty obvious. It's up to the devs if they want to utilize touch controls, joy cons, or both. People need to think of the Switch as a high powered handheld, that you can display on the TV, not a low powered home console that you can take on the go.

Noice.

Even though I can get most of these on PC, it would still be super cool to play a lot of these on the go. I think this really embodies Nintendo's overall strategy here. Focus less on graphically intensive third party AAA showcase games that PC and consoles already have a solid lock on, and are becoming increasingly difficult to turn a profit on anyway. Meanwhile there's a lot of potential for a solid handheld/hybrid that doesn't have the shitty controls of a phone, and focuses more on leaner independent games that benefit from portability, still offer up fresh gameplay opportunities, and don't require a ton of GPU power.

My Switch doesn't arrive until tomorrow though I'm glad others tested a few things out before me, here is a couple of things to avoid:

  1. Vinyl sticks don't work on the Switch due to its coating.

2. Certain screen protectors peel off due to the heat while docked, even official ones. Some don't stick at all and it seems the only ones that are working are amFilm's

3. There have been several reports that the dock base can scratch the bottom of the screen when inserting the switch. Whether those people were just being neanderthals when inserting it or the rumor is true, if you want to be on the safe side then just take the styrofoam from the switch's packaging and cover the protruding plastic inside the dock.

I'm a little disappointed with the 3rd oversight if it remains true especially when the whole point of the console is it being docked and undocked.

I got the Hori premium screen protector because theirs worked best for me. Apparently it was because they were for systems that didn't generate very much heat and the same design doesn't hold up. So much for that.

I'd try using a USB-C extension cable into the dock to avoid having to insert it.

That's not what happened. The console is legitimately bricked, he didn't do anything wrong.

Hearing him explain his problem, I think it's a battery issue. He plugs it into the dock, a green light pops up for a second, then fades away. Same shit used to happen to my laptop when the battery lost its ability to hold a charge and only had the reserve.

it's not EVERY console but it does happen. early ps2s couldn't play some kinds of disks, the first xbox had a 1/15000 or so chance of the power brick exploding with early models, and the first version of the 360 of course had that RROD issue due to heat problems. usually though the only issue is a lack of software, which you can't really avoid. you can just make people ignore it with a good lengthy game at launch, like mario 64 or breath of the wild.

Why the heck is Bomberman R full price? And why does t look like t has less features than Bomber Man 64, a game from 20 years ago (fuck I'm old).

I know Konami is shit.. but the fact Nintendo published it should say something

Same w/ that 1-2-Switch thing. Should have been packaged.

Not really, gameplay is very different. Bomberman Hero checks a lot of 3d platformer boxes of that generation, whereas Bomberman 64 sort of did its own thing (no jumping, weird bomb stacking puzzles)

>buying a console at launch and not being prepared for a 0.001% failure rate

A lot of those videos were just dumb fucks who just put their grips on upside down. I'm not going to give any hardware manufacturer a pass for for shipping with defects, but let's not pretend these issues are anymore widespread than those of literally every console launch. The vast majority of units in the wild seem to be functioning flawlessly.

My ass. It's probably way higher, but it's impossible to estimate the failure rate this early. The PS4 had something like 0.5-1% if I remember correctly, not sure about the Xbone. A unit like the Switch is probably going to have a higher rate just by virtue of how small and complex the engineering is, but thus far it seems to be a lot lower than I was expecting. The lefthand Joycon seems to have much bigger issues than the Switch itself.

I don't know about "defects", but a 1-2% failure rate in the first year is a popular figure that gets thrown around. I remember SquareTrade reported the PS3 failure rate as 10% over two years and that system had a reputation for poor reliability. And personally, I think that comparing anything to some abstract "typical product" is useless at best. Leave it for the hack journalists.

This thread is as dead as the switch. The switch was clearly released too early, it wasn't ready, and I'm not just saying that because there's no apps like netflix on it, there's no games other than Zelda which is on the Wii U anyway. Nintendo should have learned it's lesson from the 3DS, if you remember the 3DS launched too expensive (just like the switch is) and with shit games. I bought Ghost Recon simply because I didn't want to have bought a handheld and never use it... After the 3DS had a price drop and some decent games (with decent 3rd party support) the 3DS became a success. If that doesn't happen with the switch it will indeed fail. Nintendo fans need to stop with this attitude of "Nintendo consoles are good for Nintendo games" because it'll be just like the Wii U if it doesn't have good 3rd party support and with what we are seeing so far its not looking good, 3rd party games that are years old and on multiple other consoles and PC. So the only people that will be buying that are Nintendo fans because they've never had the opportunity to get it before and that just won't be enough to keep the 3rd party devs around, they'll look at the sales and determine that it's not worth it. Nintendo fans are happy to play Skyrim 6 years after everyone else has, that just shows how gloomy it is to be a fan of Nintendo. I honestly just feel like Nintendo will be better as just a software developer and I know a lot of people say that so it might be eyerolling to hear it, but they just suck at making hardware, especially when they concentrate too much on it being gimmicky and they don't care about making it powerful, if it's not powerful enough 3rd party devs won't bother porting their games over to it, and on top of that it's more expensive than a xb1 and ps4... Also the controllers are way too expensive.

Neither have I. There's obviously some defective units out there, but Nintendo Hate Guys seem determined to make it seem like it's more widespread than it is. Current estimates of actual defective units is about 4% which is pretty standard for a modern console launch. 15% are reporting more minor issues like dead pixels, shipping damage, etc. Disappointing if you got one, and Nintendo is insane when they try and tell people that a dead pixel is "normal", but it's not a disaster by any stretch. Unless retailers start reporting a defect rate higher than 5-10% it's nothing outside the historical norm. For comparison the 360 launch unit failure rate was estimated at over 50%, the PS4 was pegged between 1-4%, and the Xbox One was estimated at up to 6 times the failure rate of the PS4. Hard data is basically impossible to come by unless retailers or manufacturers self-report, so it's always going to be a game of speculation. A handful of anecdotes from Youtube doesn't mean that Nintendo is still enjoying an extremely successful console launch. If they can keep the momentum up through the holidays (which shouldn't be hard given the strong lineup that will be available by Q3) they'll be sitting pretty.

Bumping to get the dupe shit thread off the front page.

the wobbly joycons do kinda bother me honestly. dead pixels too, as well as nintendo's insistance that dead pixels aren't a defect (wtf). but it seems like I can get around that by just returning it for another one if that happens. I'm waiting on buying one myself till they sort that out, or there's enough stock for me to easily return one or two consoles for replacements just in case. If I get too distracted by other games I might even wait a year on it like I usually do with consoles. We might get a revision by then, like the second version of the ds lite without the clear casing and breaky hinges.

the hate from some dudes over this is unreal though. nintendo released a console a few months prematurely these people think they're satan incarnate and throth at the mouth when they hear the word switch. I'm mildly annoyed and gonna wait on the console, I can't imagine anyone else being more heated than that. That said, I probably would rage pretty hard if breath of the wild wasn't good. Or if it was just okay.

A decade ago I bought a laptop direct from HP and it came with a pixel stuck green. Naturally, they didn't feel like doing anything about it and I wasn't able to fix it myself, so I just had to live with it the entire time I had it. Also, this has been Nintendo's policy forever. I remember them saying they won't replace DS screens under warranty unless there were 3 or more dead or stuck pixels. I imagine this wouldn't be as much of a problem if stock were better. No bump

Ive not bought a switch yet but I do want one.
From what I've seen about reports and YouTube videos is though, it's immediately apparent that there will likely be a revision.

The built in flash memory is modular, so can easily be upgraded. A higher capacity switch is likely to come.

I think they'll keep the console the same shape and specs, but what I can see happening is higher built in memory and perhaps a bigger battery. The console itself has 4300 battery, but with power banks becoming so common, I think Nintendo will switch it out.

Also, I think there will likely be a dock revision in the next two years, with either better build quality or a bit more beef inside it.

After reports of so many scratches etc, Nintendo may likely include a felt liner, or provide a cover for for the front of the dock to protect it.

Similar to what they did with Wiimotes, when they realised people were smashing their TVs, they started to include a rubber holder for them.

To be fair, that's really something that should have been there to begin with. I mean, they couldn't have done that much hands on testing with the product if a lot of reports are coming in about scratched screens. Not trying to hate on Nintendo or anything, I think the Switch seems like a pretty fun console/handheld thing. It's just that coming from Nintendo given their track record in the past, you'd expect better.

Makes me wonder though how many times testers had to just sit there and open/close/slide disc trays on consoles just to ensure that shit wouldn't break down in a week's time.

They could have had a small child insert the thing into their shitty dock 4-5 times to realize this. It's absolutely unforgivable and people should be shitting all over them for it, threatening boycotts, etc. Nintendo has completely lost its way. Each console is progressively more flimsy.

The NES was tough as nails. You could take a shit on it, set it on fire and throw it out the window and you'd still be playing Punch Out!! on it 10 minutes later. As well as for the next 20 years. I sold my original NES literally 20 years after I first picked it up when I was 6 years old, and it was working just as well as the day I bought it.

Give me a fucking break. It's a shitty oversight, but get over yourself faggot. If you're not dropping the thing in and pulling it out crooked like a mongoloid you're not going to get any scratches. The interior shouldn't be hard plastic in the first place, but it doesn't rub up against it unless you're being clumsy with it.

I don't think anyone is asking for a 100% flawless release, that's irrational, but for simple things like scratches on screen that is easily fucking fixed and should have been found in testing quite easily it's a bit annoying. Especially considering they had the same problem with the first gen of the 3DS! How could they make the same mistake twice?! That's just lazy and cost cutting!

I wonder if these scratches could have been avoided if they designed the Switch to require force to be inserted into the dock, like it was a SNES cartridge.

But on the other hand, if you choose not to use a screen protector on an expensive touch screen device in 2017, even if it's one of those thin ones, you deserve whatever scratches you get. It would be nice if just one of these things could come with a screen protector though.

Hori's premium protectors worked fine on earlier consoles, but the adhesive apparently wasn't meant for the extreme heat the Switch puts out. Their regular thin one works fine, but you should just get the amFilm one - half the price, twice the quantity and 3 times the quality. For god's sake don't get the PDP one.
