The thing about the price is, the PS4 and Xbox One aren't new, so to compare the pricing is a little unfair. Both of those systems had average at best games at launch. Now, I can see how people would be a little annoyed since those systems have far superior graphics for the same price, but ultimately, it comes down to the games. I was more interested in the new Zelda and Mario than something like another video game show that features Call of Duty and another Assassin's Creed game (while I am not against those games, it's nice to see something different).

Really, the prices of the additional controllers isn't so bad, the pro controller is just $10 more than a PS4 controller.

Plus, it's $100 more than a 3DS, has better graphics than that, can be played on a TV screen, and with all of that has equivalent battery life to a 3DS. Looking at it that way, it's really not a bad deal.

I may try to get this. Already have a PS4, so this should fill the space the PS4 is lacking in terms of racing games and Halo. Now someone needs to get a 3DS sale going.

Anymore it's more interesting to read the comment section of these articles than the actual article. I didn't think people would be so against the new Nintendo Switch so soon, but oh well, it looks cool to me since I've always been a fan of dedicated handheld systems.

@Mommas_b_o_y: I don't play games on the go that often, but I also play my 3DS a lot at home. Though, I have always liked handheld games on a dedicated handheld gaming system, not a phone.

So much hate on here, I actually think this is really cool. I fell for the Vita being a portable PS3 experience, but then it lost pretty much all high profile third party support within what felt like months after it released (and remote play never really worked for me). However, this looks to be the real deal (of course, we'll have to see proper gameplay demonstrations to really determine that). While I never have an issue with not having a TV to play on, I still really like playing games on my 3DS, which is partially because it's the only place to play Monster Hunter. However, if this gets a new Monser Hunter, that would be huge for me. Plus, I just like being able to play games on a portable device that is specifically made for gaming (tried going with Sony, had the PSP and the Vita, but then went to the 3DS and haven't looked back).

Though, I am curious how local multiplayer will go. I am assuming I can just buy the regular, Xbox looking controller for split screen games like Mario Kart. Will online no longer be free? How will the battery life be? The 3DS is decent with battery life and the Vita is very impressive. I'm expecting around 5 hours of battery life while in portable mode, which is pretty much what the 3DS is has been like in my experience with it.

I'd much rather have this over any of the virtual reality stuff Sony and Microsoft are messing around with.

Curious to see what the pricing will end up being. I'm expecting somewhere between $300 and $400.

I have a Nvidia 760 ti (the rest is fine, have an i7 and 16 GB RAM), not sure if I'll be able to play at maximum settings, but still should be an upgrade over the current version, even if I have to play at medium settings for some things.

She may be right, but the Joker/Harley interaction was a lot more interesting than the actual villain, whose story was paper thin and just ended up doing generic bad guy things. I thought Jared Leto was really good with what little we saw of him. I mean, if you can't look past the way he looks then I think you're preventing yourself from enjoying a pretty good portrayal of the character (which is what it is, a portrayal, not a definitive version) and the tattoos on the face weren't even noticeable while watching the movie. They really did poorly edit his scenes, which made him feel like a trailer within a movie.

It's because the cast is really good. I mean, Will Smith was a big surprise in a positive way. Harley Quinn wasn't bad, but the actress needs to decide on the accent (was a little too heavy at times). Jared Leto, while he had maybe 10 or 15 minutes of screen time, was really good and I'm looking forward to him in a Batman movie. The problems with the movie include a very poorly done villain with not much of a reason to be doing generic evil things (despite the actual character being kind of cool) and editing that lack cohesion.

But I don't doubt people will be entertained despite the flaws because the main characters were pretty fun (just ignore all the rest of the squad, who didn't really do much other than show up once in a while, though El Diablo was pretty cool) and I'm looking forward to them in a more cohesive movie (or an extended version of this movie, hopefully with more Joker).

@GregoryBastards: He was only on for like 10 or 15 minutes, but I thought he was really good, now he needs more time in a Batman movie.

@spiddyock: It's because people aren't expecting works of art from a comic book movie (at least I'm not). They're basically the new take on crazy action movies. Granted, I also liked BvS so I clearly don't represent the popular opinion when I say I like these new DC movies.

Though, Justice League I'm still undecided on (obviously, it wasn't even a trailer as much as a few clips they already filmed), but Aquaman seemed a little odd (the scene when he's in slow motion taking a drink and throwing down the bottle seemed a little too ridiculous).

However, Wonder Woman looks pretty awesome and so does Suicide Squad.

Note, I also enjoyed this year's X-Men movie, which apparently nobody else liked.
