Looks like a gimmick that actually has a practical use for once

Although it won't exactly fit into a pocket like a handheld.

Drinking game: Take a shot everytime the Switch logo snaps together

Colour me intrigued. It looks nice, and, as Tets said, reasonably practical. I particularly like the look of the "traditional" controller. Show me specs, show me game libraries!

Probably gonna get this, Freybs is mad about Zelda and I don't want to get a Wii U for Breath of the Wild, when it's gonna go obsolete in 20 minutes.

Time to start selling my used undies methinks....

Looks pretty fascinating, I like it. Though my dad brought up a good point, in that VR is right around the corner. Will this system have VR capabilities? If not, it might quickly fall to the wayside.

This is the first time I've been genuinely impressed by a Nintendo product in several years.

It's good like, cos the advert is all 'hey you're a hip, jettsetting type of person, look you can take this with you everywhere, you can play games in da cluub, or on a plane, or with your trendy friends on the way to a festival'

When they know full well that the top 3 places this is gonna be played: 1) on the bus/train 2) in bed 3) on the toilet. And I myself won't even manage the first one

I'm almost 100% certain that VR is why the Joy-Con controllers are designed the way they are.

Seems to be excellent for casual multiplayer gaming on the go. I found the ad corny though :p.

I'm not making any VR investments. I actually want to be aware of my surroundings while I'm playing video games. There might be a scorpion on your ceiling.

VR is and will remain a niche market for quite some time. I cancelled my pre-order the day before it was due to ship (PSVR that is) because while I'm dying to try it - even just to play my current games on a "cinematic" sized screen - it's a pretty hefty investment for now.

I'm just saying I don't think VR is going to be the "next step" in gaming like some think it is. I'm really into it and will get VR for sure, because I'm a huge geek and love the idea. But I'm not sold on this idea that everything is going to be VR focused in gaming from now on.

Nintendo Switch is an awesome handheld/ console hybrid, and I'm thinking about getting one. Given Nintendo's general stance on console/ handheld specs (i.e. they're about half as powerful as the weakest alternative available), I doubt very much this device will be VR capable. You pretty much just need to look at the size of the machine to know that. But I don't see that as a detractor.

That Mario game briefly seen looked new btw. Wanna know what it is.

On the other hand, I'm not gonna get this any time soon. I got my Wii U just last year and even then I have admittedly not played it very much (and only own like, four or five games for it).
Good thing that Breath of the Wild is still coming for Wii U.
