Fils-Aime: 3DS has a long life in front of it. We’ve already announced games that will be launching in the first couple quarters of this year. There are a number of big games coming. And in our view, the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch are going to live side-by-side. You’re going to be meeting different price points, you’re going to be meeting different types of consumers, you’re going to have the newest, freshest content available on Nintendo Switch, you’ve got a thousand-game library available on Nintendo 3DS, plus some key new ones coming. They’re going to coexist just fine. We’ve done this before, managing two different systems.
I think there’s a sense that Nintendo Switch is a portable device. It is portable. But at its heart, it’s a home console that you can take with you on the go.
They want to give a new way to play Zelda not a better looking Zelda.
... Nintendo) will be adding a premium just for the novelty of it.
Will you really play this whilst being jostled on the bus though? Action games really aren't suited to portable play. I like handhelds are much as the next guy, but while travelling I only play turn based/strategy games.
The point people seem to be forgetting is that Switch is, ultimately, a handheld console.
just a tick.. let me check how many xbone games only run at 720p and struggle to hit 30fps...
I don't want this one TBH, but my boys do. I've made a compromise with them, that they can stick it on this years Christmas wishlist.
... Obviously I'll have to 'test' it first.
It's not a big problem in usage. The question is one of Nintendo not including a buck's worth of USB port and wiring in the normal JoyCon adaptor so you can plug it in and charge while playing. That's incredibly cheap and IMO difficult to justify.
Instead of arguing that this isn't such a big deal, instead answer why it is better for Nintendo and consumers to not provide Joycon charging in the default JoyGrip out of the box.
Reasonably you, or at least I, would only have to dock them once or twice a week because of the 20 hour charge. Circumstances vary of course, but the point is, this inconvenience you speak of is contrived and born of cynicism.
Is that right? Because who the fuck needs to play a game for longer than 20 hours at a time without needing sleep?
That release table is very slender god help Nintendo if MARIO slips to 2018.
