    Looks pretty cool. I won't buy one right away because as is the issue with every Nintendo console, it will depend on 3rd party support. It seems like they are abandoning the gimmick motion controls though, so it will be easier for developers.

    Am I missing something or is this just like the Wii U with better graphics? Not much experience with the U but the basic concept looks the same...

    Whats the price point on this going to be?

    Not that I want it, just worth knowing so when my kid asks for it Ill know how easy will it be to say no to

    under 250 and he might get it, otherwise he can keep going on the Wii U

    The U had to be within so many feet of the Gamepad to communicate with each other. Looks like the controller of the Switch is totally portable because they went back to cartridges instead of disks. The carts go into the portable controller.

    It's essentially a home console and a Gameboy, as far as I can tell.

    I thought that too. The portable function on the U is pointless since you have to be close to the console anyway. Lol

    I'm not a gamer...but it does look better than the Wii and U graphics wise anyway. I personally liked the Wii because it was different, but it got old pretty quickly.

    I'd imagine they price it at the $300-400 range.

    Seems fine. Glad to have a real controller. Wonder if the graphics can get up to the xbox1 or ps4 levels at the very least.

    All depends on how many games they put out. Nintendo games > the rest but they don't make enough of them...

    They showed the next NBA2k17 so maybe Nintendo can finally get the EA gamse. Would love to start a madden franchise again without having to buy the ps4/xbox1.

    I'm intrigued. But yeah, price going to be the deciding factor for me. I just don't play enough to justify $400 systems anymore.
