    This is from a impressions thread of someone who played the system at PAX

    oh god are they finally going to let us change our loadouts? Hell I'll even just take switching the weapon loadout and having the equipment still be locked outside it, just dont make me have to leave my lobby every time i want to change my gun that was literally the only truly bad thing about that games multiplayer. It was like a single tiny stain on a perfectly white dress shirt, it was horrible.

    Wonder what the chances are of Rommance of the Three kingdoms on the switch actually running better than the PS4 counterpart. I would import if I knew for sure it had english text and subtitle mode and it ran better than the PS4 version. I wonder what the hell was up with that.

    I know this doesn't mean much to those who are against.. but it looks like the online fee will be around 20 bucks a year.

    Being cheaper than the competition won't mean much if the online service is still shit.

    $20... $50... or $5... If that shit is as bad as the current online, Nintendo can go fuck themselves.

    Can't go two matches in Smash without the game turning to shit, and I'm on a wired connection... I can only imagine the horror that awaits the apparently wi-fi only Switch online experience.

    ^^ Ok so call me crazy but am i the only one that, when i leave my apartment, actually intend to be productive and or get things done OTHER than gaming?

    Even when i'm not doing anything worthwhile, i can live without my videogames till i get back to the apartment. Definitely not going to drag my game console to a social gathering. I'm there to be sociable and do other things. If i just wanted to play games and not interact with others, i'd have stayed home.

    Then the part where the guy's girlfriend is down to screw but, the dude is just blissfully playing. Nintendo Switch= It's so good, you won't even want pussy anymore. lol.

    Also i like how Nintendo is playing up this mobile aspect as if we've never had a good portable system until now. Which is obviously not true. Even when it comes to sheer power, nintendo still is NOT breaking new ground here. The Vita was basically a portable Playstation 3, delivering console-quality titles (And PSP was essentially a portable PS2).

    psp unmodded was about a 6.5 7 out of 10 in terms of consoles go I spent more time playing snes and GBA games on it than anything else not to say I don't have a solid 10-20 PSP games that I loved

    Vita was just pure trash never was there a greater case of wasted potential since Good Will Hunting it should have just played console games instead of console-ish games with an Android mobile style mixed in

    So the Switch already does everything the Vita wished it could do but couldn't because Sony Is incompetent AF and just has gotten lucky with publishing deals on hot games in the past.

    Please stop being that fanboy that tells other fanboys to stop being fanboys, especially when its not even a case of fanboy shit. Sony's handhelds were okay to trash with more half assed ideas than the wii u and virtual boy combined. There's areason that while the PSP was out The DS rose up and became the highest selling console of all time.

    Have we confirmed that a power bank/portable charger can be used to keep it running?

    It has a standard USB C port, and the Switch reveal trailer showed the guy using it at an airport terminal plugged into a wall outlet.

    PSP could not do a lot of the particle effects the PS2 could and was more limited in the amount of polygons. Also, I highly doubt Vita could handle something like GTA V. Don't know what Switch will be able to do, but I doubt it will catch on until heavily discounted like the 3DS was if it has even half as much 3rd party support as its predecessor.

    Official nintendo switch hardware overview (granted it's the basics for those uniformed)

    I am happy to know it supports portable chargers so therefore my multiple chargers will rally get use!

    I honestly have no interest in any of the launch titles for this system. I'll get one later if Capcom, Arc, Namco, and SNK actually start bringing the goods.

    It's not backwards compatible, and there's no word on VC transfer yet but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Time Magazine interviewed Kimishima: http://time.com/4662446/nintendo-president-switch-interview/

    Here are the notables:
    • You can still create Miis, but the Mii Maker has been pushed to System Settings. So Miis are still around, but there's clearly less focus on them. Devs can still insert Miis into their games.
    • No web browser at launch. They're pushing the Switch as a dedicated video game console. All the non-essentials are likely coming later.
    • eShop will be available at launch, but no further details given. Will it even be called eShop?
    • Kimishima reiterated that the price of the online service will be $18-$27 USD per year. Online play is "key to the business"
    • Interviewer asked if Switch can "emulate" Wii U games. Kimishima responded by saying they can be remade for the Switch, as is the case with MK8. Support for controllers for older consoles may be considered in the future.
    • The Switch is powerful enough to support VR, but don't expect it anytime soon until Nintendo figures out the best way to introduce it.
    • They're not creating a successor to the 3DS "right now." The implication here is that the Switch is not the successor to the 3DS.
    • The "quality of life" project is still going. No further details are given.
    • They plan to ship 2 million Switch units by the end of March
    • They are considering what "Nintendo-like" eSports will look like in terms of business model/rewards. He quotes the two obvious eSports candidates ARMS and Splatoon 2.

    I hope the Wii U Gamepad is compatible with it when they release Super Mario Maker for the Switch. I'd like to be able to build levels while displaying it on my TV.

    I wanted the same but by the looks of if they do have dual screen play they will probably add some type of console wifi fusion encouraging people to get multiple Switches for dual screen play
