What it means is Nintendo does miracles with half of what others use to construct massive messes.

Nintendo's hardware is incredible , the technology as a whole console wise, is more impressive than anything else I've seen

Is if 4K? No... who cares? I'm fine with 1080 or 720, looks just as good, don't care about hair follicles or reflections of the sunrise over a sniper scope

I want a versatile console that pushes the limits

And with their proprietary hardware, this is what maximizing output means .. taking as little as possible to make the most efficient powerful outcome

I said since day 1 the PS4 is a piss poor follow up to the king of consoles (ps3) and obviously I own a PS4 so I kind of like it

Any mods want to move this to the Switch forum?

 

Are any of you comfortable playing the Switch in portable mode with the joycons attached?  I just can't find an ergonomic way to hold the thing and can't play for more than 30 minutes without my hand starting to cramp.  I feel like it needs something similar to this:

But that aside, people with better command of English seem to understand my syntax and/or more basic points without the need to scoff at other perspectives

...and yes, I standby the Sony comment more than anything, if that's the only part you understood my duke lol

I needed to prop sometimes, so I just put the Screen into kick stand seating and used the joy con controller

This is my first (potential/partly) handheld I've had since game gear so I'm not sure how other hand held recently played but I'm sure they're better designed as this is more a "console" than a portable , obviously with full ability to be portable ...

Not sure if anyone has experienced this, but apparently it may happen while playing in portable mode too.

Nintendo really dropped the ball on the design and materials for the Switch, can't believe there have been so many issues with the system, and it's only been out for a month.

Since PS4 offered nothing worth noting to me , especially with the best titles being multi platform, and while I enjoy Sony exclusives (drake, lbp, kz, and others) I've always been disappointed with the PS4, again because , exclusives aren't as good as PS3 and most games are multi platform on 128-256(x2)bit consoles

The Wii was always interested to me , but as a hardcore sony fan i had no desire, but after 4 years of seeing everything get released on PS3, PS4, x360 xbone and PC( save the occasional good Game) and it's all the same with minor graphic improvements...just not does do it for me, and I wish I just stayed on PS3 until the switch

Just me though , and I still play the occasional PlayStation still, just rarely....never said I was tossing it out. I agree : having 1 Sony and 1 Nintendo in the house is cool (Xbox will always be no worth mention)
Just excited about a really new and refreshing console from the "original guys" (Nintendo)

 

See I see the opposite:MS is under whelming where Nintendo optimized the maximum output and who knows what's to follow . They are original and with hidden power (like a twin turbo 4 cyl vs a straight 8 N/a), both got advantage

That's why I don't mind if I own a os4 too or In your case like others an Xbox

My favorite phrase of his was "Nintendo optimized the maximum output", wtf is that even supposed to mean? Gibberish.

man, Mario Kart can't come soon enough. Barely playing the Switch and needing that casual fun game itch. Zelda is great and all but I just don't have the luxury of time to enjoy it and dive into the world as much as I used to.

To all those who claimed that the Switch would be a second Wii U, what have you to say now?

I wish the search were better on this site to go back to all of those "Nintendo won't last one more console generation" people.  I know they won't speak up, but for the last few years those posts were all over the place.

But come on, how likely did this seem back then? It legit looked like it WAS a second Wii U. The success is a surprise to everyone. That's why you're just starting to see bigger third party stuff coming out.

I can't wait for me to pay $70 for that cardboard game!

I still don't understand why this is a hit, it makes no sense to me, but whatever. I love old Nintendo.

The success isn't a surprise to me. This is my opportunity to get an "I told you so" in. Back when the Switch was announced, I predicted it's success, and most of the reasoning and logic I used is now commonly referenced with the benefit of hindsight. I saw this coming, and provided credible arguments to support my predictions.

 

Plenty of other people didn't see it coming, including quite a few major game publishers. And yes, that is why we are seeing so many ports and quick turnaround projects coming to the Switch. Making a game from scratch for a new platform is time consuming and costly. Porting content you produced years ago is economical and a chance to re-monetize old material.

Well, congrats.

Please understand, I'm not against the Switch or Nintendo at all. It looked borderline sabotage to me at the time with the trailers and stuff, but I bought the thing two weeks ago and can't stop playing Odyssey, and just got back from picking up a pink and green joy-con set. I'm clearly on their side right now, just never saw this coming and have a hard time believing some claims like that.
