    Pffft, good luck finding even 2 other people you know IRL with a damn Switch, let alone with a copy of Splatoon 2.

    if it takes off like the 3DS did then any college campus or shopping mall in the West will probably have enough. Also they could do a DS download play style thing with Splatoon 2's local multi, lock the download play characters to a generic inkling with starting armor and just the Splattershot Jr or some shit, like how mario kart DS locked download play-players to Shy Guy.

    I wouldn't underestimate Splatoon. It may not have large numbers when it first gets released due to supply of the system and what not but if it sells as well as the first or possibly better then finding 2 or more people may not be that difficult by next year.

    Drop an online Pokémon MMO and Smash with low to no lag and let iy print money

    I've been wanting to see this since...Gamecube era? I don't think it will happen.
    Pokémon Is pretty much an MMO without global chat at this point and That's a good thing IMO cause global chat in mmo's is pure AIDS

    Do you people really want an MMO from a company with a track record of poor online infrastructure, poor communication features, and a willingness to cut useful tools altogether because a six year old might hear or see something "inappropriate?"

    I think with this news of a 4k version coming before the current version is even out I think I might actually just hold off if they are working on it already that means were talking probabaly one year to the day of release when it drops (spring 18) With preorders being sold out it might not be till late summer / fall before I even get one by then i'm looking at about a half year before the new one drops as much as i'd rather not wait I think I'm going to have to backtrack on this one.

    I'm finding the idea of Nintendo working on an 'updated' version of the Switch this early really far fetched (if at all really). Nintendo isn't really known to real 'updates' in their home console hardware. I find the idea of an attachment or something like the expansion bay for the N64 more believable. They don't even have an idea of how well the system is going to sell in the long run yet and now you're going to tell me that they're going to just go ahead and spend more money into making a more powerful version of the system before it even gets released? That doesn't sound like Nintendo's MO.

    This also Isn't the same Nintendo Iwata is dead and the leadership has been shaken up. I mean cmon did you ever think the day would come when your playing fire emblem on your phone? Did you ever think the day would come when your Zelda comes with a season pass? How about advertisements with no children? They are modernizing and working on the sequel while the current thing is still going gold is a very 2018 thing to do. They barely missed the deadline on the 4k capable Tegra that's in the current Shield tv and needed to kill the Wii brand asap. Given all the Intel out there, and the circumstances it just makes sense, at any rate I'll have to wait on a Switch regardless so we'll see.

    If it's true then It's a waste until we have achieved 1080p and 60 fps without any lag/slowdown/dropped frames for every game. (that and I don't have a 4K TV yet)

    Nintendo has a terrible track record updating its consoles and all of those plans turn into vaporware:
    • SNES was going to have a CD ROM expansion. Never went anywhere.
    • N64 was going to have a disk drive: it either turned into vaporware, or it became a Japan only thing. Don't remember well.
    • Gamecube: again had a pair of bottom ports for expansions. All it got was an adapter to play Game Boy games.

    I doubt they have the capability to deliver a system with both 4k / 60 fps when not even Sony or Microsoft can bring it consistently. It also looks like a foolish attempt to compete with them in their own turf when even they have realized it is a dead end. Maybe they want to throw a bone to the specs whores but jeopardizing and screwing over the people that preordered or were planning to buy a Switch early sounds outrageous. They couldn't be that st... wait, I withdraw my comment.

    Thing is their track record is that they they don't do updates to their home consoles really hardware wise. If they did this would be the first time they successfully did that and despite some people's feelings towards Nintendo I highly doubt they'd release the upgrade IF it were to happen in the same year let alone the next year.

    The 60 fps dream is definitely a dream and kind of a strange one.

    I don't see why y'all are so skeptical about this, though. No reason we couldn't see a Switch Lite or a Switch Pro.

    I don't have a tv at all so it only makes sense given how cheap 4k hdr is already ( I just saw one at best buy 55 inch for 320) to just buy 4k. If I buy a 4k tv I'm going to want to experience 4K content period.

    Are you trying to suggest that I stated that games are worse with high framerates? I don't see what you're saying here.

    *Points to literally every game that is great while running at 60fps.*

    Are you trying to suggest that I stated that games are worse with high framerates? I don't see what you're saying here.
    I'm saying great games that run at 60fps exist so it's neither a dream, nor is it a strange dream because its real. It's not even a dream on the switch, it's just a matter of aiming for it. On console it may be a dream (4k/60fps) but that's only for now, it's a wall that will crumble with time and hardware, and on PC it's already here. It's really just a matter of devs putting it higher on the priority list then other things, and some devs do this, others don't. If you can get enough people to care about it and demand it then you'd be more likely to actually get it.

    I think with this news of a 4k version coming before the current version is even out I think I might actually just hold off if they are working on it already that means were talking probabaly one year to the day of release when it drops (spring 18) With preorders being sold out it might not be till late summer / fall before I even get one by then i'm looking at about a half year before the new one drops as much as i'd rather not wait I think I'm going to have to backtrack on this one.

    I'm finding the idea of Nintendo working on an 'updated' version of the Switch this early really far fetched (if at all really). Nintendo isn't really known to real 'updates' in their home console hardware. I find the idea of an attachment or something like the expansion bay for the N64 more believable. They don't even have an idea of how well the system is going to sell in the long run yet and now you're going to tell me that they're going to just go ahead and spend more money into making a more powerful version of the system before it even gets released? That doesn't sound like Nintendo's MO.

    Nintendo has a terrible track record updating its consoles and all of those plans turn into vaporware:
    • SNES was going to have a CD ROM expansion. Never went anywhere.
    • N64 was going to have a disk drive: it either turned into vaporware, or it became a Japan only thing. Don't remember well.
    • Gamecube: again had a pair of bottom ports for expansions. All it got was an adapter to play Game Boy games.

    I doubt they have the capability to deliver a system with both 4k / 60 fps when not even Sony or Microsoft can bring it consistently. It also looks like a foolish attempt to compete with them in their own turf when even they have realized it is a dead end. Maybe they want to throw a bone to the specs whores but jeopardizing and screwing over the people that preordered or were planning to buy a Switch early sounds outrageous. They couldn't be that st... wait, I withdraw my comment.

    The 60 fps dream is definitely a dream and kind of a strange one.

    It's really neither of these things.

    Well yeah, no shit. But not hitting the arbitrary 60 fps benchmark isn't anything that even vaguely resembles a disqualifying factor when it comes to a game's quality.

    It is if a game claims it does and fails to deliver. Look what most would agree on is once all games can easily achieve a smooth framerate with a standard resolution, only then would I be ok with pushing for more higher resolutions. No more compromising and certainly not just to achieve something like 4k. Like say you can play Bayonetta at 4k...but it runs at a mere 12fps. What's the point then? A game that runs smooth at 30fps with 1080p? That's fine as long as it's the intended vision of the game and not because they're trying to compromise something.

    Man, fuck all that. I been playing games in 1080p, 60+FPS for like 5 or 6 years. Do I give a fuck if every Switch game hits that mark? Hell naw. Give me Skyrim at whatever resolution at 30FPS on a handheld and I just don't care. I'll be having fun.
    when I die... may there be friends who will grieve for me,who will carry our shared joys and pains, who will carry my memory

    I'm getting my switch from Target (ordered online) and getting Breath of the Wild off Amazon. Both should be delivered on release day.

    I've been on the fence about ordering Super Bomberman R off Amazon as well. I want a game I can play when I want to take a break from BotW but if BotW is as good as it seems to be, I wont be taking any.

    Sorry if I missed it but is there any confirmation on how the virtual console will work? I just saw starfox 64 on there but I'd like to be sure I can play it on the switch before I buy it.

    No details yet on the VC.

    The wait for the Switch is getting harder every day. I keep going back to Youtube to check for more vids.
