The Nintendo Switch and why it's nothing like we have ever seen


source

The Nintendo Switch was announced recently and its a hybrid of console and handheld video gaming devices.

The switch is incredibly well designed.

Play it on your television

You insert the switch screen(Looks like an ipad) into the main console when you want to play it on your screen

Play it on the go

Remove the Switch screen from the main console and attack your control to the sides

If you are busy playing you are able to switch to the mobile version seamlessly, your game will not turn off.

Play with friends

The controller splits into two smaller controls where you are able to play with your friends.

The Switch also connects to other Switches where you can play with your friends

So whats the damage?

The Switch will cost around $299 , or 29,980 Yen ( $260 )

What are the specs?

Well there are nothing official about the specs but Nvidia has states this below

Nvidia had previously stated that it is making the processor inside the console and a spec leak claimed that the CPU and GPU will be based heavily on the Nvidia Tegra X1 chipset - much like the new Nvidia Shield Android TV box.

That effectively means it will have 256-core Maxwell graphics processing and an octa-core processor. It will also be capable of 4K Ultra HD video playback, although it is said to have a HDMI 1.4 output so will only be able to play 4K video at 30fps.

So what about the type of games?

There will only be a handful of games at release and these are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2 switch games. In the next few months after its release there will also be Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey and ARMS. Nintendo has released a list of developers that will be making games for them and the list is

I think this could be really successful, the only worry I have is that the games will make or break this console. Lets hope that this isn't the case

I didn't go for the WiiU so I am excited about this!!

Agreed, I think this is going to be epic.

It's so tempting, if even just because of the Zelda game. Nintendo just does it right with a couple of their own games. I've always loved the mario kart and super smash games aswell.

Ugh! So tempting...

·

Lol agreed, and their mario karts you cant beat. Best game with a bunch of friends

Great post ! (;

·

thank you :)

A definite ReSteem! Thx y0u very much, my s0n is now bugging me for a 3Ds so that he can play "Mario" lol The problem that I have is that it's been on the market for awhile now and all of his friends have it so, the "Nintendo Switch " would be a perfect gift!
Only thing is that his birthday is on the 24th of Feb and the game system doesn't come out till days later. He is anxiously waiting for the 3DS and so don't know if can make him hold out much longer. And if what you say is true about the games, then I may have to get the 3DS first ;(
I haven't played video games like that since I was a kid and this was the first game system that actually makes me want to sit down & take some time out and play with my s0n. Now I can start where I left off, Nintendo ;) So yeah thanks again!

Amazing!!!!!I'm speechless
