I'd personally buy the system if I had $ burning a hole in my pocket and had to choose between the three because it offers the most access to additional content that isn't available on the PC. The upgrades, depending on what you currently have, may not make that huge of a difference -- and I doubt it's going to give you access to games that you're PC is currently unable to play.

Nintendo has been trying something a bit different for the past couple of iterations and, despite the doomsayers, they're doing just fine.

My son loves the WiiU, and I feel like I've gotten every penny worth of value out of it. I could see myself getting a switch in a year or so, once the catalog is beefier.

I felt the same way about the Dreamcast, but the market didn't reward it, unfortunately.

I'd be more likely to get a Wii U for Mario Kart / Smash -- it's something I regularly have the random urge to do, but never seem to pull the trigger.

With Nintendo sticking to consoles that don't even attempt to compete in terms of hardware power, I like the idea of the console doubling as a handheld. The issue for me, as a consumer, is that I'm not into handhelds or most of Nintendo's library to justify the cost of entry in my mind. With that said, I'm not hoping that this is a failure. Maybe some other companies could learn lessons and use it in weighs that I may enjoy more?

Conservative in terms of power, the Wii and WiiU are hardly radically different from each other, nor is the Switch, it performs better as a tablet vs being used as an an actual console, that should be telling and somewhat of a red flag right there, but again Nintendo could literally shit in a box and sell an actual box of shit, and their zealots would call it the best tasting shit ever.

Not only did they launch the Switch globally last Friday, they're shipping 2 million units by the end of March (which is also the end of their fiscal year).

In order for this to be the fastest selling console in company history, they'd have to...y'know, have units to sell.

You're acting like this is the first time product shortages have occurred. There were major 360 shortages when that console launched; was Microsoft artificially limiting supply, too?

This happens every time Nintendo ships something, every time, you mean to tell me all their years doing this and they still haven't figured out how to properly produce enough hardware? Hell its still the case with both the Nes Classic and the 3DS where units can be hard to come by. Nintendo as a company are a bunch of cheapskates.

The Wii and WiiU used PowerPC architecture IBM CPUs with ATI / AMD GPUs. The Switch uses a Nvidia Maxwell Tegra SoC utilizing ARM architecture.

Forgive for for being frank for just one post. Then we can get back to the fun.

But if you think that the Wii and the Switch are conservative consoles in any way then you are a fucking retard. Never mind the clock speeds. Fuck that shit. PS2 games look good. Who cares...

And how in the flying fuck does the Switch perform better as a tablet? IT DOESN'T HAVE A FUCKING BROWSER!!! And not ONE app!

Don't do this to me bro. We are friends here, don't do this. I don't like it people try to bend reality.

Ps2 games don't look good, not when so much better can be done and IS being done today, if that is your highbar for visuals, like I said you nintendo folks have really low ass standards. Pathetic even.

In gameplay black, less stutter, draw in, etc, and it lacks the features currently of a full fledged tablet, not good.

Nice job cherry picking one thing out of my post. Not respond to the rest of it.

The 3DS - in all of its iterations - were readily available until December. In fact, the last console to see major supply shortages was the Wii; they had no issues shipping the Wii U and the NES Classic was a simple nostalgic toy.

You keep saying, "this happens every time..." but it's not exactly correct.

What kind of fucking jerk actively hopes for one of the most beloved icons in gaming to fail? Fair enough if you don't want to buy their products but must you try and shit all over them in EVERY single fucking thread? Just go back to typing the word progressive in every post, you were easier to ignore then.

See this is a more reasoned way of thinking.

I think zelda looks fucking awesome.

Nintendo didn't put a stranglehold on platgames next game Neir:Automata AND IT IS COMING TO PC MOTHER FUCKERS! REJOICE!

You and many others. In Germany, "Horizon: Zero Dawn" outsold all Switch games combined. Interestingly, the Switch version of Zelda was sold out on Amazon.de at release. Otherwise, it might have been able to turn the tables... depending on how many Switches were actually available, of course.

Horizon Zero Dawn outsold Zelda here as well. Granted the install base is bigger.

The Wii, Wii U and Switch are not radically different. It is just an evolution. Really Nintendo since the Nintendo 64 has been all about interesting controller changes. As their consoles became dreadfully under-powered, mainly since the Gamecube when they started doing minor spec bumps, they kept up with the controller thing as their gimmick to differentiate themselves. The Wii kind of really put it front and center, the Wii U used a lot of the same tech but put a screen on it. The Switch is still that same product but controllers that slide off. I fail to see the radical changes.

From what I have seen in videos, the actual joy cons on the system look terrible, and look terrible attached to that plastic monstrosity you can use as a standalone controller. It looks like an overpriced Pro controller is the way to go once you realize the joy cons are trash.

Also the flex I have seen in videos is alarming when they are attached to the android tablet, I mean Nvida tablet, I mean Switch screen.

If I was Brandon I would go CPU if he really needs one, otherwise wait 2 years on the Switch for the four games that will probably be out and worth owning by then. I mean worth owning a console for, not because Snipperclips is a cool little 20 dollar thing.

Also, I have been seeing 3DS XL systems readily available at Targets where I live.

As someone whose hands measure 8" from the base of my palm to the tip of my middle finger, I can attest to the fact that the joy-cons aren't fun to hold individually. When they're connected to the grip, it's a surprisingly comfortable controller.

I haven't bought a Pro controller yet because they're $70, so I've been using the joy-cons exclusively...and they're nothing at all like you imagine. Of course, I also haven't had any of the connectivity issues people have been crowing about, either.

Flex? Are people bending these things?

Well, there's going to be more than four games actually worth owning this year alone.

I'm just curious, but which videos show the flex? That is something I have not heard of yet. Do you have any links?
