That $uper Mario game footage from the first look video is gonna be a sequel to Super Mario Sunshine

A new Metroid in the same style as Metroid Other M but a new game in HD by either Platinum games or Bethesda. I had a feeling I knew which studio Ob1plays is trying to keep secret. Skyrim gameplay on the Switch will be shown first before the reveal of a new Metroid

Virtual console will be apart of Nintendo's paid online service giving subscribers new classics a week early before other people get to buy it.

Super Mario Warriors or Pokemon Warriors will be the new Warriors spin off for the Switch

An NES style Switch to be showed off before other versions

Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash announced for the Switch

A trailer for Pokemon Stars in development not entirely the full game kinda like A Link Between world's got a development trailer.

Depending on what they show tonight, this might be the first time I buy a console on release day.

So:

Super Mario Odyssey
A new Megaten game
Xenoblade 2
Fire Emblem Warriors
A new No More Heroes
Splatoon 2


Unfortunately, it looks like Zelda is the only game that's actually a launch title.

It's quite cheap... Which might lead me to buy it earlier than usual (I buy consoles usually a year and a half after they're launch).

Some interesting games, no region locking is an auto win, but the "Switch" feature means absolutely nothing to me.

negatives:
barely any games available at launch
costs the same as a current ps4 + 1 game bundle, but is nowhere close in terms of graphical power or VR capability
laughable battery life

positives:
exclusive games
portability? (some might consider this a negative though, given the bulk)

Region free is a plus. Online is free to start but Nintendo just couldn't help themselves and will start charging for it in the fall.

  • 1-2-Switch - Release Date: Launch Title
  • ARMS - Release Date: Spring 2017

Region-Free was a big plus for those who were finally getting tired of Nintendo's region-locked systems. I was actually quite surprised since Nintendo has been quite fixated on staying in the realm of region-locked media. The lack of known release date titles worries me, ever so slightly. I think the console itself is interesting in the sense that it's running on an ARM architecture (just wait for modders/hackers to put out a rootkit for it in mere weeks after release, probably). I've already put in a pre-order for the console and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I'll be an early adopter and see just how well this all goes.

Arms looks very exciting. I'm definitely going to get it, plan on trading in my Wii U and possibly my 3DS if they plan on porting Pokemon to the Switch.

I appreciate and acknowledge what Nintendo has done for the video game industry. In fact I believe Nintendo is the one that pulled the industry out of the crash of 83' and is this reason why PS, Xbox, PC gaming and video games in general still exist today. But I honestly believe that Nintendo is chasing a ghost with this new (and yet another) gimmick style console. I'm not saying that this console is going to fail but I don't think this console is not going to be completely successful and will not be able to compete with the other consoles. Sure it has Zelda, Super Mario, Xenoblades, etc. but would that be enough? Nintendo was completely successful with the original Wii back at it's launch simply because of LUCK. At that time it was extremely innovative and new and everybody bought (including me) into the hype and expectations were met but time passes by and now gimmick style console is not as hot as it once was. The Wii U's struggle is a perfect example and proof of that.

I don't y'all, I'm very very skeptical with the Switch. I'm probably just going to wait for a year or two and see how it does. I hope I'm proven wrong and that it does well.

I actually agree with the majority of what you said. I had a moment of "do I really want to do this" when I pre-ordered through Target (paid upfront). There aren't that many launch titles, there's a lot of promises (and not a lot of evidence - just like with the Wii U), and Nintendo seems to be relying on its gimmicks to sustain themselves. With that being said... I decided to pull the trigger this time because of my respect for Nintendo. I feel like Nintendo is just one bad console away from being the next SEGA. They realize that the market is in mobile gaming - so they've essentially made the most "mobile" console they could come up with. I gave up some money to SEGA for the Dreamcast (release date purchase) ... I can do the same for Nintendo in what I feel is their "time of need".

this is what you get for years of just accepting it and continue to pay for things that were free before..

FALL of 2017 will mark the death of free online multiplayer on consoles

so only PC will have free online play

Maybe. This is kind of how all consoles are, though. This kind of mentality in the "console wars" is basically why PC has become more popular overall (cheaper for online play and you can upgrade at your own desire). Nintendo just keeps trying new things - that's Nintendo for the last three generations of gaming.

As for the end of free online multiplayer on consoles: I've been waiting for this to happen for a while now. It costs to keep these things up and going. PC has Steam to mitigate most of the issues that console players are paying for via Xbox Live (XB Gold)/Playstation Network (PS+).

i was typing up replies to multiple threads.. so i forgot to finish that sentence

as for "PC has become more popular"

i don't know.. the price of admission is not cheap..

but now if you factor in free online multiplayer and cheaper game prices...

if they are going to charge for online.. then at least do something about those hackers/glitchers along with the toxic gamers..

i have a friend who will refuse to play online-- he will only play games offline-- even though he has PS+ since they started the thing.

Yeah, the price for a decent PC isn't necessarily cheap (especially if you don't know how to put one together yourself).
The reason why PC online still remains for the most part free is because Steam handles things like matchups, friends, invites ... etc. Steam makes a commission off of each game purchased which goes to all of these things. Not to mention the community pays for additional levels (card crafting) and customization. The publishers just have to make sure they have functioning online servers, p2p connections (from one player to another), and/or netcode. When you mesh these things with the features of Steam you get PS+/Xbox Live Gold.

I really don't think the Switch is going to accomplish the thing it set out to do, if it wanted to be a home console that could be brought out of the house, then they failed from the start. A 2.5 hr battery life is not good enough for a flight from california to new york, which would be 3.5 to 4 hours in the air, and possibly 2 hours waiting in the airport. The early trailers promised that the Switch was going to be a hybrid console that was adequate enough to lug around outside the house. With the stated battery life, that's not going to happen.
