I hope it's good, but after the WiiU...I don't know.

Still, dat new LoZ game.

Christ, it may be the best one since Wind Waker.

Handhelds, by definition, fit in ONE hand

Uh...no?

Most handhelds would be a NIGHTMARE to play with one hand.

Nobody said you had to PLAY them with one hand, but that they FIT in one hand.

The Nintendo Switch is not a handheld, but a portable console.

Maybe it's because I've been up over 30 hours, or maybe I'm just not 'getting it', but MOST 'handheld' systems don't actually 'fit' in one hand.

if you hold it in your hands and require no external hardware as you play it then it is considered a handheld, the switch does indeed seem to be a handheld, judging purely by the provided image this switch thing looks just like a psp, with a slightly larger screen?

also, lol, I had to google Gamegear, I had no idea what one actually looks like

Can't believe no one is talking about it. . .c'mon guys am I really the only nintendo fanboy in this forum :(?
prolly cuz the thing is gonna flop, of all the gaming fanboys, nintendo fans should know to keep their expectations low

I consider the PSP a handheld, but I consider the PSV a portable console.
The Nintendo Switch, being larger than a PSV, should be considered a portable console in my opinion. It may look like a handheld device, but it is really just a tablet with beefier specs.

I actually liked it, but what about the games? Also, the price. Just hope it isn't the price of the full console.

No backward compatibility. :( The one way to appeal to this would have been to do that. They have not said anything about their digital library backward compatibility either.

At this point better to wait and see hiw many games launch in this before buying.

I'm still not exactly sure if I'll get it. But then again, all the consoles I had were bought when it was nearing the end of it's life cycle. They were cheaper, already has a huge library of games and I had the most improved version. Except for the 3DS XL I bought one month before the N3DS came out.

On topic, I can't really carry it around with me without needing a backpack. It's tablet sized. Fortunately, my 3DSXL still fits in my pocket. I can see myself playing it only at home.
It's a trap?!

Being newer models didn't mean those were all "better"
The newer PS2 units lacked a HDD bay which was a requirement of some games
The newer PS3 units removed 2 USB ports, the multiple card readers and backwards compatibility
The newer PSPs were made without wifi
The newer PSVs took out the OLED screen and replaced them with a standard LED LCD screen of inferior quality

Newer =/= better

E: more
The Dualshock 4 removed analogue buttons, a MAJOR requirement of some PS2 and a few PS3 games.
The GBA second revision had a smaller screen than the original GBA

I'm REALLY hoping that the NS gets a collection of WiiU games that are made for the Switch.

Eh... I'm just not really interested in the basic concept of switching between a large-ish tablet hand-held and a home console. I can see the market for it - and in terms of that it's leagues ahead of the Wii-U - but I really don't mind having a dedicated hand-held (or a few, really) and a game console that sits perpetually in my media cabinet with the two being separate respective gaming experiences.

Also pretty skeptical with its battery life.

That said, if there are games there and its reasonably priced, sure, I'll probably get it eventually. I intend to get the Wii-U once it's dead, because why not? I just probably won't use it for its gimmick.
Peace, Love, and Tranquility

Since I live in a place where I can't really have a console or a desktop PC, I would actually prefer this. A laptop is a option, but damn they are out of stock and their cost (always 30% higher than their US price here) and the less than trustworthy reliability and their especially bad customer service (especially you, Razer) has me left wanting. Seriously, I think I am gonna have get that bloody fucking brick of Alienware. Dell at least repair's their laptop one way or another in a timely manner (at least where all I live)

Seems appealing to me. Much more so than PS4 or Xbox is now.

But ultimately it will be decided by the games. If it has stuff I really want, I will get it.
