Now Playing: Nintendo Switch Announcement Impressions

Not impressed with what you've seen from the Nintendo Switch so far? Nintendo has more surprises to share about the console in the future.

"We haven't shown everything," a spokesperson for Nintendo told the Wall Street Journal. The person added that Nintendo will announce more details about the console next year, ahead of its release in March.

A report from earlier this week stated that Nintendo would announce the Switch's price and system specifications in 2017, which could be the details referenced in the statement.

We learned on Friday that Nintendo's stock value dropped by 6.5 percent, one day after revealing the console. That's a bigger drop than when Nintendo announced the Wii U in June 2011, when the company's share price fell by 5 percent. Some analysts have doubted the Nintendo Switch's ability to appeal to a wide audience.

I can see why their stock prices dropped. Who wants a bulky, tablet sized portable system that docks in to a tv as a main console. They really haven't shown anything because all the screens in the reveal were not of actual gameplay on the console.

I hope Nintendo doesn't abandon the 3DS to focus on what is basically an updated version of the PS1 with the screen and portable battery.

Nintendo actually went on record to say the Switch (should have called it the NX afterall) won't play physical copies of Nintendo 3DS games. If new 3ds releases can't be downloaded to the Switch and played there, I'm actually not interested in the system at all and will play Zelda on my Wii U. It's a big deal because Nintendo has shown they can't support a console all by themselves and the only hook that the Switch had was the merge of the handheld and console spaces, which the Switch isn't finally. I know a lot of people won't care either way, but there are a ton of people on the forums who thought they could migrate from 3DS to the Switch with no compromise, and that isn't the case.

Am I the only one that's not a big Nintendo fan but is way more excited about Switch than all the VR hype?

@ogremalfeitor: The only reason you're more excited is because you haven't tried proper VR. That is completely mind blowing. I don't feel like playing games on a screen anymore.

@ogremalfeitor: I hesitated for the longest time (since the pre-order phase that is), but picked up a PSVR. I love AAA games with polished graphics. I have an xbox 1 and PS4 and am about to build a pretty good gaming PC to see if there is any fuss about 2K gaming. Then I played on PSVR and have to say that the immersion you get in Virtual Reality trumps all of it. You're literally transported to another world. Some people have criticised the field of view, but it fills your vision more than what a projector screen does. Over a short period of time, you do get familiar with the concept of being in the game, but you'll miss the sense of immersion when going back to a regular screen. In fact, part of the fun of VR IS the immersion, so, games you probably would find kind of boring and ho hum are experiences worth playing in VR, while others are more 'complete' and those games you want to go back to, like Eve Valkyrie. Ubisoft is releasing Star-Trek Bridge Crew that has a lot of journalists raving: a 4 player co-op game where someone plays captain, helmsman, engineer and weapons I think, and Crytek is about to release a Dino island style game that is a VR showpiece (slightly poor controls not withstanding). Most games are simple now, but will grow in complexity as Devs learn how to build games in VR. Anyways, I do mean to go on, but won't. I'll be picking up a Vive next year, I think, but trust me when I say the PSVR is more than good enough even without PS4 pro if you're interested, but don't have the budget to buy a $1500 PC and $800 headset.

Just a brief piece of the past I want to share. Decades ago, I remember buying video games magazines monthly, not to mention my Nintendo Power subscription. It was the dawn of 3d gaming. You could see pictures of Mario 64 and some weird triceraptor controller. Soon you could play demos at Toys-R-Us. EVERYBODY was eager to discover Nintendo's latest baby and the N64 was on everybody's christmas list.

Holy cow! Mario 64 was AMAZING. Waverace would transport you to another world where you can taste the horizon's reflections on the waves. What did you say? A Starfox game with the Rumblepack???? What the frack??? Ocarina of Time???? Nintendo kept sweeping us off our feet. I mean, GoldenfrickingEye!! I'm sure you all remember unlocking the Paintball mode and trying to beat The Train under a specific time to unlock some kind of secret mode. Let's not forget Killer Instinct Gold and Mario Kart.

Here is my question to Nintendo...WHAT THE FRACK HAPPENED? Console wise, you lost 3rd party support and MOST of your exclusives have some childish/cartoonish theme while your console lacks in terms of graphics being on par with current times. You were once THE name that came to mind when talking about gaming. I remember people comparing the Wii to a fisherprice toy. Then came it's Bro, the WiiU. You now advertise your next console, which seems to be some crap tablet that docks into an hdmi adapter for TV. We all know if Rockstar released another GTA game it would not be on The Switch. This can be said about any popular game. So, what exactly is the Switch? An underpowered tablet for a niche market.

@xolivierx: Nintendo is like an old mad scientists, who sometimes sharts his pants. A dysfunctional genius. Economically speaking, they are quite good. They never design anything draw-droppingly great , but once in a while they will developp a new flavour of candy and everybody is going to want to taste it. Nothing flashy, they always remain on the border not to make too many risks. Look at the amiibios : what a great way to squeeze money from the Nintendo enthusiasts(I'm not saying they are not great to collect nor bashing enthusiasts). Look at the various 3DS limited editions. I just wish the delivered something more.

I'm hoping for:

Different types of Joy Cons. (those look way too small and uncomfortable to use, attached or separately.)

Confirmation of cartridge memory storage or internal storage. either way, confirmation of size, please.

touch screen or not, let us know. My guess is no, but what if you just want to watch videos or something?

Oh, other apps (like Netflix), internet, media playback, etc.

It's irritating seeing the nay-sayers say, "I have a Switch already, it's a called a tablet." The only similarity to this and a tablet is to plug your tablet into our TV. The games on a Tablet don't even compare to a 3DS let alone a standalone console. The sophistication is much higher. Mobile games are the games you sit on a toilet with - literally - not dive into experiences, which Nintendo is selling.

By Nintendo doing this, they're also creating competition for tablets. On top of that, which is the most important factor, they're unifying platform. Does nobody get this? No one has to purchase a Home Console and Handheld separately anymore if you want the Nintendo experience. That alone justifies it's likely $299 price tag. Because a Wii U + 3DS at anytime is significantly more.

@sonic_spark:

Unifying platforms. Please. I don't like handhelds and I don't like gaming on phones/tablets. The fact is Nintendo is strong when it comes to handhelds, which is why this thing is a hybrid.

We are all expecting a average console in terms of power and graphics.

Nobody is expecting quality titles in terms of 3rd party support. The switch might get downgraded ports or ''exclusives''.

The Zelda game has been in ''development'' for years and yet the open world feels empty and soulless.

This is far from being awesome like the SNES and the N64 were.

The only strong point is we ''might'' get more gams available for it since it's a hybrid. I hope we'll get more games like Dragon Quest and I hope they will be better than the average ''3ds''(handheld) version. I do doubt Nintendo will bring more japanese titles though.

@xolivierx: It is unifying platforms... a home console that doubles as a handheld. It's not a hard concept to understand.

My comment is clear, quality titles versus mobile gaming. The two aren't the same. I didn't comment on third party support or ports; it's an unanswered question. You can damn sure bet Nintendo will be pumping out quality exclusives after the disaster that was Wii U.

You know, as much as I know, as much as everyone else knows that we really know nothing about the new Zelda game. Chances are it'll be a GOTY.... like the franchise ALWAYS is.

I agree that I hope that being a hybrid will give us other games like Dragon Quest.

@sonic_spark:

Two issues with your comment..

One, mobile gaming HAS quality. And be careful what you wish for, as the Switch is using a mobile processor: a custom Nvidia TEGRA CPU. That is using ARM (mobile) not x86 (PC and current console generation) architecture. The Switch will play some AMAZING mobile games, true, but will compete with the Xbox 360 and PS3 for power.

Two: We DO know what the new Zelda game is like, it's been shown at GDC, E3, and PAX. Playable, public demos at PAX.

@sonic_spark: Most tablet games are garbage, yes I agree. But MS actually beat Nintendo to the market with console/mobile cross-buy. The Xbox Play Anywhere service already allows me to play Gears of War, Forza, etc. on the X1 and a Surface Pro tablet. MS might try to counter the Switch by releasing an Xbox branded Surface tablet that's more price competitive. I hope so; more competition means better games all around.

@troll_elite: Yeah that's great. But it requires so much additional hardware, i.e. Surface Tablet, and an Android controller or you have to pack your X1 controller with you.

So it's a great feature, no doubt, but it's cost entry/portability ease isn't the same as what Nintendo is offering.

You can. Buy another console. To think you are going to buy a Nintendo console for the specs is not gonna happen. History has showed this for many years now. But if you wanna play Nintendo games unfortunately you have to deal with a less powerful console.

@fig56: At least this is a handheld, and a damn good one at that. The vent near the headphone jack is a strong indication that this is a monster of a handheld(think about how many tablets have cooling)... I'm only concerned about battery life at this point. If its running at .75 TFLOP(GPU) its going to eat the battery in no time...

For home consoles, this is about as exciting as the Nvidia shield console, but at least it'll have a decent amount of software now that Nintendo will only be working on one platform.

"We haven't shown everything,"? You haven't showed us anything, we don't know specs, price, battery life. We've seen a 5 year old game (Skyrim) that hasn't even been confirmed. Splatoon...not exactly a console seller or the shooter that everyone is dying to get into. NBA 2k17, yep already available on every other platform. New Mario Game? Mario Kart? I'm burnt out on the nostalgia driven rehashes.

Breath of the Wild looks great, signs of Nintendo genius all over it....just wtf was that Skyrim junk; we've played that to death and we're ready for new experiences. The remaster comes out this month, we'll be done with it by March when the new console comes out. Why would Nintendo showcase that with their long awaited console reveal? Oh Bethesda's on board, we've got 3rd party support! Sort of, kind of late to the game there.
New experiences please, not another Mario Kart, Party, Paper, here's your nostalgia; Ocarina 3d, Windwaker HD, Twilight Princess HD: #Nintendotired.

@consolehaven:Ouch, yeah I read about the stock drop and it's pretty harsh. I think Mario for iPhone and hopefully later other mobiles like Android will give them a hint of just how much money they stand to make releasing their titles cross-platform. They might bank more money from a few well-released game titles in the mobile market than they stand to make with the Switch all-together at this point. Millions of mobile devices ready to buy and play their titles. So basically, Nintendo is like...we have a backup plan.

@unight: Yeah. I really want them to succeed, but I think I'll pass on this one. Nintendo has already gone on record to say it won't play 3DS games. I also kind of wish they stuck with the NX name. I guess Nintendo really really wanted people to know what the console does this time : switch between home console and portable device. I recently purchased a PSVR and have fallen in love with Virtual reality, so, most of my pastime budget will go there. Very amazing.

@consolehaven: Agreed on the NX keeping it's name, they've used that name for what feels like years now. And about VR, if it can get enough AAA quality titles that appeal to mass audiences then it stands to usher in a new era for gaming, because the level of immersion it offers...when done correctly is a whole new experience. So much potential there.

@unight: I don't know if you've had the chance to try it yet. Mundane games are elevated to good games in VR and good games are great. A title doesn't have to be AAA to be amazing in VR. I'm still very much looking forward to Robinson the Journey and Star Trek Bridge Crew. A silly party game like keep talking and Nobody explodes is made better with VR, and that's just you in a room, defusing a suitcase bomb.

I'd describe myself as a casual gamer, my childhood was all about the SNES and N64 and I had a dabble with the PS1 and PS2 as a teenager - moving from Mario and Zelda into Tomb Raider and growing up. As time went by I just wasn't playing consoles anymore and had transitioned from game-dominated downtime to movie-dominated downtime. I got a GameCube in a split-moment decision when it had a massive price-drop but I only ever got 3 games and it ended up gathering dust as I just didn't have the time (and to be honest interest). I spent a good 7/8 years without really gaming at all, and then by chance picked up a 3DS and had a go at Ocarina Of Time. It changed everything. Whether it was the break from gaming, the device or the nostalgia it all came together. I grabbed the 3DSXL and then upgraded to the New 3DSXL. For me the 3DSXL, and then specifically the New 3DSXL really hit the spot. It was something I could just pick up and play whenever, it allowed me to download and play all of my childhood SNES games, and provided new adventures with familiar characters. For various reasons my gaming is very stop-start, usually on a whim and usually when I don't have a TV available... so again the 3DS was perfect. I've actually now amassed quite a back-catalogue of games to get through, mainly thanks to cheap second-hand DS titles and the great library of newer games for the 3DS. I was adamant that this would be my last console (all my others since sold), suitable for the occasional gaming session and nostalgia trip. Then I saw the Switch trailer and lost it.

For 3 glorious minutes (and in fact for a good few hours afterwards) I was a kid again... as excited as when I first saw the N64 or got my PS1. I've cooled off a bit now as I realise I need to get through my 3DS games library but I'M IN. Yeah, I'll probably wait until a price drop in year 2/3. Yeah I'll probably only get about 10 games... but GIMMIE. It looks great, you want to pick it up and play it. I’m not bothered about 4k and HDR, but I want 1080 and 720 mobile. Boom. I want the combo of nostalgia and newness it offers - Mario! Zelda! Old but new! My 3DS can become my archive console with all my childhood classics and handheld games there if I need them, the Switch can be all about new full-console titles that are also portable. I want to play something which is both more adult but still fun - the marketing and design is spot on… less Fantasy Life, more Skyrim. Oh yes. I’m still short of leisure time and won’t throw money at gaming but this in SO on my radar. I actually need the possibility to go from TV play to mobile play (family using the main TV screen for example, or only being able to carry on gaming when commuting). I’m not upset about no backwards compatibility with the 3DS - I’m happy to keep mine and get the Switch as well, and of course, they are two different machines designed to give two unique gaming experiences. The 3D on the 3DS works on the 3DS - it’s not really to be transferred to another machine (nor the games played without it turned on, something any New 3DS owner will attest to, as it looks amazing). Likewise, there is a big difference between a handheld (3DS) and portable home console (Switch). I have questions about storage (I’d really like to be digital-only with the Switch), battery (I’m going to want a good 4 hours mobile) and other specifics, but first impressions are great. The switch is sharp, looks solid, is set to have a really decent library (I’d prefer fewer great games than lots of mediocre ones).

I’ve got some waiting to do and some playing to get through before I make the jump, but I’m already hyped about BOTW from my couch. I can see how it might not be for everyone but if Nintendo can get a casual gamer like me on board, just like with the (3)DS they're on to something...

@cripesdude: I think people are really excited now because Nintendo waited so long to reveal anything. That should wear off in a little bit. The platform doesn't offer anything new except that the console is portable. When will you play anymore than you play the Wii U right now? It's also still not clear how the handheld market ties into the Switch ecosystem. This sounds crazy cause Switch is portable, right? What devs like about the 3DS other than the great install base, is the cost to produce software is still a fraction of the price of what it costs to produce a big console title. Will there be a 'handheld' style branding that games like Monster Hunter will sell under, with ''lower quality'' graphics? 3DS gamers migrating to Switch will probably also hate the battery life of the console. Anyways, there are a lot of unknowns, and people are much more enthusiastic than they should be with what they know of the system. If the switch supports 3DS games library, and 3DS teams are on board, I'll buy a switch as that will guarantee a stream of unique 3RD party handheld games and Nintendo will have an install base to release their franchises on the console and support the Switch much more than the Wii U.

I'm excited about this. It's like a handheld designed for adults, judging from the looks of it. Also, if it can play open world games like Breath of the Wild, just imagine what else it could do. I think people are under estimating the power of it.

@collbanth: Nintendo fans right now have never really cared about the power of the machine, just Nintendo's support of it, which was underwhelming with the Wii U. It only seems like it's a console designed for adults because that's all the video showed, were adults playing admittedly kid games like splatoon, mariokart, and mario. The only game resembling an 'adult' focused experience was Skyrim.

@consolehaven: Nah, I'm talking about the design of the system. It wouldn't have mattered who was playing it. But I'm as pretty sure that's subjective when it comes to classifying what's labeled as kiddy. I'm an adult, and I love Mario and all the other Nintendo IP's.

While I think you're dead wrong regarding Nintendo fans and the power/specs of the machine, I was referring to the people who will compare it to the PS4/Xbone.

These comments are hilarious. The Switch can not run current gen games. A tablet isn't capable of doing that with ANY kind of battery life and certainly not with the size of the Switch. This thing is literally a Shield optimized to play Wii U games. Boring and lame.

@pooppoopy: Yeah, looking forward to seeing what Nintendo has cooked up here. The Wii U gamepad is hopefully NOT an indication of the battery life of the Switch. The gamepad only streamed video and that only lasted 4 hours on a full charge!

@pooppoopy: Exactly. Although the SHIELD is a higher quality experience since it can stream games in 1080p. Pretty sure the rumors about this device having a 720p screen are accurate, since any higher resolution would result in a 30 minute battery life when running games natively.
