Im totally unimpressed by the switch. The WII U already proved that 32GB is way too low.
Launch games will be Zelda ,I Am Setsuna ,Just Dance, super bomberman and 12 Switch. mario kart 8 rehash april 28th UGH!!!!!!!!!

games in development: Splatoon 2, Mario Odyssy (looked great but somewhat awkward), streetfigher 2 rehash , fifa 13!!!! , farming simulator , minecraft , Project: Octopath Traveler (new rpg by square enix) , dragon quest 10 and 11 , dragon quest heroes 1 +2 , xenoblade 2, skyrim, arms.

Seems like Nintendo continued right where they stopped with the WII U!
rehash old games and release a exclusive once in a while.

Im totally skipping this , especially since im already playing Zelda on the WII U, and knowing Nintendo, the versions between units will be identical.

a set of those Switch Joy-con controllers wll cost 100 here btw , seems the peripherals are quite expensive.

mario kart 8 steering wheel

So 300 without a decent controller (Pro)??? Decent controller that costs another 70???

And games at 60 with weak graphics?!....

And an online service that only lets you play NES/SNES for a limited time as a reward instead of giving them to the customer???

The only decent things from this presentation are Mario and Zelda...

This looks like an epic fail (another one) from Nintendo...

I just hope they release a mini SNES so i can have some fun from Nintendo.

They showed hardware mainly, and a few games.

And you call this a fail already?

Nothing has been mentioned about online, virtual console games, and there will more than likely be more launch titles soon.

Seriously people these days are so negative towards everything the moment they see it.

Makes no sense.

The console alone and zelda are worth the entry price.

I think Nintendo have been quite clever in not trying to compete with Microsoft and Sony.

*Edit I just saw the US price of $300. What are they thinking????

Whitelightning - I'm taking a guess here, but, I think that SF game will be Street Fighter Alpha 3 HD (which is one of my fav sf games).

Also re: Mario Kart, for me, if this game didn't come out with it, then, I wouldn't get one. It's the main one that I want. I haven't owned a Nintendo since GB Advance so I'm actually looking forward to playing a whole range of Nintendo games. (having kids helps, perfect excuse for me).

I have to agree that it does seem expensive, though. The system, extra controller and some games...we're looking at 400+. That's a lot of money, but, not that different to when the PS Vita came out, except the Switch has more possibilities.

On top of that, they're saying that starting next year, online play will be a subscription service...

There's still some questions left unanswered like GPU (maxwell or Pascal), internal storage size etc.

http://www.game.co.uk/en/games/ninte...NintendoSwitch

VERY EXPENSIVE SYSTEM. Potentially low 1st yr sales...

Funnily, the wheel is one of the cheapest things you can buy lol. 14 for 2. Wired controller is 28 (not bad). Pro controller 65 (wtf?). Joycons 74 (wtf?) and yeah, looks like 60 games. Mario Kart is 50.

My (potential) purchase would be around 358;

Switch
Wired controller
Mario Kart 8 (Release on 28/04/2017)

MK8 is end of April so looks like I won't be day one buyer.

and Fifa for 60 is a joke. It doesn't even look like the PS4/X1 version.

I'm going to go ahead and say it, the launch line-up of the PS Vita was a lot better with 2x the number of games. Back then I got Unchartered, Wipeout, Fifa and Ridge Racer.

Looked pretty solid overall. They should probably bundle the system with a few (mini)games though - similar to Wii sports for the Wii.
The portable aspect is probably more interesting for the japanese audience, at least I don't care much about it. I'm also fine with the graphics of the games.

Their online service doesn't seem very attractive. Should have left the multiplayer free and offer other stuff for subscribers. For now, one "free" NES or SNES games isn't really much of a seller.

Seeing Mario with actual human characters was a bit strange at first. Wonder how going back to a more open approach will play out though.
Didn't really like the new art style for Xenoblade 2, I think the first one did it just right in this regard.

I don't await to see huge sale numbers at launch though, since the current lineup looks rather limited - even with the new Zelda in there (which looked great IMO).

Can i assume then that with the switch, there is no bc with anything from software to hardware, one thing i loved about the Wii-U was the fact all my Wii peripherals worked with the system....shame that if true, was a great feature.

XP-200; I think no bc was confirmed early on. There will probably be adapters to make them work.

What the Switch needs to avoid is another 3DS and Wii U situation is a price-cut imho.

1-2 Switch should've been the bundled free game and anything over 30 needs to have a 20 price-cut.

I also think avoiding the Nvidia tegra question was deliberate, due to the backlash if the Switch is infact just a custom X1.

However, I anticipate another reveal to answer some of those questions and perhaps also more games added to launch line-up.

We'll $300 isn't too bad but I wanted more like $250. What is ridiculous is the price of the pro controller $80 bucks. What is Nintendo smoking with that price?

It piqued my interest. Software library will help it do very well or outright DoA. Let's see.

I will not be paying for online in this case as well, assuming I buy it. Anyway this is something that I would be more interested in for local co-op like older consoles than online.

I didn't watch the whole show but are we getting only one controller with it or is it relying on the joy con? I'm thinking of the two NES controllers being used to play contra, turtles, etc. instead of the showdowns and ARM. What is it using for physical games?

Judging by the specs i am begining to wonder if all those recalled Wii-U's are being stripped down and turned into switch consoles, i think Ninty might just have pulled the untimate switch on gamers, literally. lol

I just watched the Mario switch gameplay video and I am blow away by how amazing it looks. Then I find out than it's not a release title and wont be released till fall at the earliest. So that leaves maybe 3 or possibly 4 for the launch release?

Totally unimpressed by the launch games and the price of the console/accessories so definitely not a day one buy for me, I'll see how it goes over next couple of years when the prices drop and it hopefully has a more fleshed out games library.

To be fair it's still going to be hooked up to a big screen TV 95% of the time for most people so the price isn't all that far wrong.

Considering it doesn't come bundled with a game or the Pro controller you're looking at a price of 404, doesn't scream value for money to me, you could argue that you don't really need the Pro controller but for me it's a must.

Despite not owning a Nintendo TV console since N64, years ago I did however buy both a Wii Classic, then, a Wii Pro controller for use with my PC games via Mayflash adapter. Love Nintendo controllers. Used them mainly for Street Fighter 4 and driving games.

The Switch Pro controller is a rip-off, though. The standard one seems to have a "Megadrive" d-pad, might get one of those if it's not much different from the Pro spec-wise.

According to Eurogamer the Switch in the UK will be priced at 280. Not too bad in all honesty.

280 isn't terrible, but like I said, add a game plus the Pro controller, 404... which isn't reasonable at all.

When you put it like that, then yes it does read terrible. Added to the mix that at that price point it's more expensive then a XBONE and PS4.

I'm glad i wound up waking up at like 6:00 this morning, noticed i had an e-mail from Gamestop on my phone that pre-orders were live, and pre-ordered my Switch with gray controllers. Now if only i had NOT waited until after the Treehouse snippet where Reggie went over everything in the Legend of Zelda Masters edition, cause by the time that ended, they sold out of the Masters edition. So.... i pre-ordered the Collectors Edition.

As far as the price.... i don't think it's bad. Yea... if you think about accounting for adding a Pro controller (if you personally need one), it does get quite expensive. But think about it leaving the Pro controller out of the equation. You're getting a console that can be played at home AND on the go, You can play a lot of the games with a friend WITHOUT necessarily NEEDING another controller since it comes with the two JoyCon's. You get the JoyCon Grip that makes it feel like a regular controller. And that's for $100 less than the PS4 Pro or Xbox One S.

March 3rd can't get here soon enough!!!! Legend of Zelda is going to be epic!
