So they took the Wii U screen-in-gamepad idea and turned it into a hybrid console/portable handheld.  No motion controls.  I wonder if all games will work in both modes?

 

Either way, I might get this.  Hopefully plenty of the Wii/U games will be playable with it so I can see what I missed.

I see people complaining about the name change saying they preferred NX lol. Remember the Revolution > Wii transition?

 

edit: they should have tried Swiitch tho hehe

The games that were shown are just existing Wii U games right? Outside of Zelda of course

I think it looks pretty cool. I like the portable, but not tied to keeping the screen between your hands setup. I like playing games on my tablet like that.

Definitely grabbed my interest. How powerful can it be with that size and price point though?

Yeah that was my concern. How does a full-featured home console remain small/light enough to be a practical portable console?

Either way, You're a Switch.

I find this appealing...but I don't see myself using it enough.  Perhaps if they release some must play games I'll see what's up.  The portable aspect is cool but I don't think I'd use it very much.  I mean - I'd like to think I would use it...but I'd almost certainly rarely take it out of that cradle.

Price is the only concern for me, but Imma get it. I skipped the Wii U altogether and this will be a good return to form from what I have seen/heard/expected.

This very well could fit under my "must play" category.

I'm curious about it.

Custom nvidia tegra chip is powering it, but I have no idea how mobile gpu's are these days.

 

Also very interested in the pro controller, if that's something I could potentially also use with PC. I hear tales that the WiiU pro controller is great, but I could never get behind the stick placement in that one.

But with the Switch Pro controller the sticks are like in Xbox controller, and with Nintendo's build quality... looking forward to more info on that. Please take rechargeable batteries.

 

Price for the whole thing is going to be very important.
