who else here thinks that the best wii u games were sm4sh and splatoon and wishes the switch controllers were compatible with the wii u

What if Nintendo Released a version of the Switch with all of the features but the Dock, the Joy Con Grip, and the Joy Con strap would be needed to be bought separately and the package would cost $200
Samuel Papp (1 year ago)
But then it would be only a handheld which defeats the purpose.

Eh, I wish just ONE channel with "nintendo" in the name would say "ehh, it's ok... I can take it or leave it"

But but but... They(Maxsoft distributor) bundled 1/2 Switch in our country and the sad part is you need to pay for it.. The unit alone is not for sale without the bundled games.. :( BOTW is fine but forcing us to pay for the 1/2 Switch .. That is just sad. Ohh and the bundle cost USD.530 btw. Now the interested people who wants it at launch decreased. That includes me I guess. I hope Nintendo do something about this.
Jaxvidstar (1 year ago)
Very good choice of background music. Maybe why the games are demo is that they know the switch's 32gb isn't enough?
pause at 14:54

Should I get the new 3ds or the switch? I mean, I already have a ps4. I don't really need a 2nd console. But I'm still interested in the switch console and portability. I grew up with Nintendo. (No I'm not spoiled. I'm buying it with my money.)

I think you should wait and see if the Switch is supported by devs. I'd go for the Switch.

I think 300 American dollars is an amazing price and I am buying it with my own money 💰 and also my parents don't like buying me and my brother consoles but one two switch is a terrible price it should be free or 20 American dollars or less

Nice Video. Pre-ordered mine, sad to say for Singapore, Hong Kong & some places in Japan, 1 2 switch and BOTW are bundled with the system. :(
Exzear TheNorseGamer (1 year ago)
We pay 420$ in sweden... thats alot of money for the console.. When it comes to the games i only really want zelda, mario oddesy, splatoon 2 and Arms but if i really like the console maybe i will try some other games aswell but i really hope they get some more western games for the switch aswell since i really dont like anime/manga games and most indie games are going to be overpriced on the switch but i have to wait and see.. i pre ordered my switch and i love the idea of the console!
Switch price: Us: 300$ Uk: 280£ Eu//Nl: 329€ Lol i thought euro's where more worth than dollars.
JC Kane (1 year ago)
I gotta say, I've been wanting a switch since the first commercial.  Granted I'm also a huge Nintendo fan and have had every Nintendo System, (well, of their mainones) since the NES.  But I have to say, this is the first time I've been thinking about getting the game system at launch, as first time I've had the means to do so.  The problem is, the game selection.  I mean, yeah, the Super Nintendo may of had only 2 games when originally launched (an interesting fact actually so thanks for that) but honestly, I'm hoping for atleast one title that tickles my fancy.. which LOZ just doesn't do it for me.. neither does Skylanders (as I alleady have it for 2 other systems and Skylanders 6 as a whole, was.. in my opinion the worst in the series.).  And while the other games sound interesting... like that 1,2,Switch, as you said, it sounds like a game that should of been budled with the system, and while would find some enjoyment of it... just not for the price tag, nor is it what I'm looking for. Yeah, I know there's all that, "Launch Window' Games, which to me, a 'Launch Window' should be within the first 3 months.. not over half a year... So, I guess we'll see the virtual line up, see if any of those games.. even if just an older SNES Game (which I know longer own the system of :P ) would sastify me untl better games come out  Which I am confident will happen, just the wait is evil.
There are a lot of confirmed games for the switch, but you still have to choose Splatoon 2 as the thumbnail.

Why are people complaining about battery life? They can use a PowerBank...
Wow a console that's 300$ and comes with 2 controllers 🙀
Skizerz the Almighty (1 year ago)
the battery complaints don't make much sense to me. If you play an intensive game on your smart phone the battery life will be 3 hours, tops. In most cases MUCH less. And practically everyone has portable chargers now, mostly because of Pokemon GO. I already have two of them, I'm all set. BTW, i think the price is fine, and the reason it's out now (there are many reasons) but one that catches me is that it's exactly the time where everyone's getting Tax refunds, and college students are getting financial aid refunds. Perfect time to toss out 400 bucks for a new Nintendo console and a game! I don't have many big complaints about the system, but the ones I have kinda of bother me. 1 2 Switch being 50 dollars is insanity. If that game sells well than I'll have to rethink my entire views on the gaming market as a whole, because I see no one wanting that game, especially at that price point. That's absurd. For the same price you could get Bomberman R, which I guarantee has a lot more playability.

Lol its 470 bucks in Australia but if you convert the currency it should be 402
Halvo (1 year ago)
Spacedflipper Yeah sorry I should've taken tax into account. The base price of the console before tax would be around $457 in Australia which still doesn't convert into the tax less $300 price in the States. Also keep in mind I'm not very upset about this I mean due to the shitiness of the Australian dollar $55 dollars is cheap af.

Batnick Americans have to pay tax, I dunno how much but it adds a bit, then there is the usual 'you live in Australia, fuck you' tax on top

Isn't just the demo that runs at 900p 30fps? The switch version should be 1080p 60fps, and the wii u one 720p and 30fps.

InfiniMac I don't know where you can buy for $400 aud, everywhere was listing it at $470, so $70 that is meant to be what Americans pay in tax and then import cost

The Wii generation game wise along with the limited controller options was a step back. Game Cube was by far the best all around system. The switch looks like it could replicate Game Cube's success but the lack of games announced was annoying like Pokemon Stars...

Nintendo switch is all about gameplay.. dont take to much concern about spec.. cause to much power will ruin the gameplay.. 720p is enough for the eyes... 1080p might ruin your eyes.. fansboy in the denial.. new console but below ps4 n xbox one.. what a joke.. its wii u all over again.. cause it is not an issue for u... your shirt tell me why.. be honest.. do you think the spec switch is enough or nintendo just lazy.. i thought switch gonna more powerfull than ps4

I think the one month thing is to create a better online environment for that game at that time, meaning that you can actually find other noobs to play with at that time. More people will play it at a specific time and not only download it and maybe play it later. I think it's great!

So who was the fag wheiner sucking loser on the internet before Jan 12th who posted the "fake" Switch Tokyo Presentation list trying to say there was a Super Mario Frost Land, Pikmin World, etc.. he is the biggest brown shit explorer ever... so funny. Hopefully he got permanent shower duty with a bunch of his boyfriends.
Goldmario79 (1 year ago)
They was trying to (in one tech article a few days ago) compare the 299.99 price tag to the current price tag of the ps4 and xass one right now. Anyone with half a brain knows they are several years into their product life cycle and this is completely NEW, so no way to compare them price wise. Good job losers on the internet who dont know anything...
Dan Duncker (1 year ago)
i know i wont be buying 1 2 switch
Straightcherry D. (1 year ago)
That online offering feels particularly bad because we've bought them on previous consoles. It's not great but I can understand it because retro games, even digitally, have an ambiguous and timeless value compared to, say, a contemporary indie game by a random developer which will most likely be forgotten in a year or two. A bit like a new and antique chair (a poor example I know).

1-2 Switch is not bundle with the sustem just because Nintendo don't want the people to associate the hardware with that game. The Switch is a hardcore console,.

A generation of people spending £700 on iphones... complaining about £280 for a bigger device with a more powerful internal chip. I honestly do NOT understand the tech market at all.
Someone Out There (1 year ago)
YourPalHDee That's what I thought, £700 for a freaking phone...and the worst part is, there are a lot of people who buy it. But then, they complain about a console that is 299$...
blackzfive (1 year ago)
YourPalHDee Probably because those are two different target groups. Smartphone enthusiasts and gaming enthusiasts just value different things.

$399 in Canada and $99 for the controller and $109 for a set of joy cons and $79.99 a game bullshit
You think that that is wrong? Dude here in Chile the goddamn console it's $540 US!

transformersloverjon (1 year ago)
"Why isn't 1-2 Switch bundled with the system." Yep. It's almost comical how this is the exact same thing EVERYONE is saying. Nintendo must have been hyper aware of this before the announcement.
I actually like that it's not bundled... I don't want to pay more for a game I'm going to play one time in a year
only the games matter......

cajunasian71 (1 year ago)
I am looking forward to this console. Nintendo has always put some great stuff out there (although the WII U was promoted virtually nil). Yes, the lack of Third Party Support initially is shocking, BUT Nintendo First Party has always been top notch. Nintendo...if the Big Third Parties don't want to support your system then f' em and give smaller Third Parties some development kits and a larger share of profits. Those 'Big Guys' quickly forget that they were 'small' at one time. I would rather have a dozen playable and perhaps 'next big thing' independent games than another abysmal 'money grab' like any EA 'yearly' Sports game. Friday the 13th, Elite Dangerous, We Happy Few, even No Man's Sky are from smaller developers.
Chris Kerney (1 year ago)
I'm hoping a new Luigi's Mansion is in the works! Nintendo could really bring another level to that game series by utilizing all the features of the Joy Con controllers!
KingBoo922 (1 year ago)
Did amiibo tap do that well that they're basing the online rental system on it? Honestly, I have no desire to play NES games. All the ones I was interested in I bought and beat years ago on the Wii. I never had a SNES, so I've got no nostalgia for any of those games really, but anything I wanted I bought and have on my Wii U right now. It seems like Nintendo took a leap towards the present but got stuck around 2011 or so. That's fitting since the Switch is really what the Wii U should have been.

I think analog triggers are useless and get in the way more than anything. The only actual use is for GC games, then again those would be better with a GC controller via adapter.

Luis Ugalde (1 year ago)
As far as frist party offerings, I'm only interested in Mario, Xenoblade 2, and Zelda (great games based on what was shown). I have never been a multiplayer guy so MK8 and Splatoon 2 don't do anything for me. Not interested in any of the motion stuff games besides ARMS. It looks ok, but again, the game is focused on multiplayer so, I wouldn't get my $$ worth if I bought it. And if I were interested in it, that would mean $80 more for an extra pair of joycons. I want the pro controller, but probably down the road. It's quite pricy
Alex Hammmonds (1 year ago)
I believe since Nintendo claims the switch will not replace the 3ds, that they will release a smaller more portable version of the switch with attached joycons and it will be able to play 3ds and switch games. It will also be cheaper and more kid friendly
Russell Drinkard (1 year ago)
Everyone is worried about the games that have been announced, however if they announced everything they would go into E3 with nothing so I know they're just waiting to show us the rest at E3 just wait!
John van Capel (1 year ago)
I have to agree with a lot that you've said. I think the launch lineup, while it does have the big title that is Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is a bit lacking, and for that reason I can see a lot of reasons to hold off on buying a Switch until at least the holiday season. I also agree that the online package doesn't sound like they're offering much, but we don't know the pricing of said online services. If it's significantly cheaper than Sony and Microsoft's offerings, then I might not mind the fact that the Virtual Console titles are essentially rentals.
wizzgamer (1 year ago)
Shame Nintendo is a shadow of it's former self Nintendo used to be about dominating the industry locking in all 3rd party supporting and starving other companies of it by any means possible. Now they just seem to want a box well handheld only now of Nintendo only games without 3rd party support the system won't last long especially no EA support.
underthenorthernstar (1 year ago)
I'm super excited for the Switch, I locked in my preorder for the blue and red joycon version at GameStop. I agree the launch lineup is a little skimpy but honestly all I need is Zelda but that's just me
Less powerful than its competitors, yet more expensive + competitors offer AAA games bundles for less $. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage vs the industry standard 500GB of internal storage. Is not capable of playing 8th gen AAA titles therefore there is no possibility of porting anything from the huge library of 800+ titles available in PS4 and XboxOne. Which is connected to: Low interest among developers and third party support. Insanely expensive accessories. Now, listen carefully. Even an idiot can see this will be a complete financial disaster for Nintendo. I will be surprised if it sells better than the Gamecube. Even if they correct everything else I mentioned is a dead end, the console CANNOT PLAY 8TH GEN TITLES. Game over Nintendo.
the8thark (1 year ago)
My opinions? 1. The Australian price sucks hard. $469.95. Lots of pain there. 2. The hardware is totally amazing. It's as good as Alex said it is. Really pushing the envelope to new and better palces. 3. The games are all good. Sure some are more niche than others and not everyone will love all the games but most of them are good. 4. 1,2 Switch should be a hardware bundle game. A good demo of how the joycons work. Would I ever buy this as a stand along game? Never. 5. The launch lineup is fine. Every month more games are coming. It's not the WiiU that had tons of games day 1. Most didn't sell because there was just too many and because of that months post launch barren with few good titles. The first year for the Switch looks great. If you like nothing day 1 there's always more within the first year for you. I agree with Reggie when he said as long as there's a killer title day 1, then the first year means more than the first day. BotW day 1 is the kilelr title the WiiU didn't have day 1 then every month you have a killer title. Works well.
cajunasian71 (1 year ago)
the8thark Still cannot believe the price in Australia. Wow. Otherwise, I agree. The system is pretty sweet and 1,2 Switch should have been bundled, but neither Xbox or Playstation did so either on their respective 'Launch' Consoles. Guess Nintendo is 'getting with the times'.
Chiyo (1 year ago)
The system may not be as powerful as other consoles but It's still really amazing to me how they fit so much tech into such a small form factor. I think it's quite impressive for what it is and I can't wait to see a teardown of it.
Deathscythe (1 year ago)
Off topic question, where did Alex get that awesome Zelda art?
cajunasian71 (1 year ago)
I am looking forward to the Switch and even pre-ordered (games: Zelda, Arms, Has Been Heroes- Gamestop Exclusive). I am still wondering if the 'Pro' controller is bluetooth or proprietary (like the original XBONE controllers). Hopefully bluetooth as most of us have bluetooth controllers 'lying around' and waaay cheaper than $80.
