Yep this has me interested.

Naming is poor. Nintendo NX sounds cooler and even Nintendo Duo sounds better.

However the concept seems alright as long as pricing isn't outrageous and they allow more indie support

Looks good to me. I think the concept is cool but only time will tell what capabilities it will actually have. :)

If the previous Tesco Direct 'leak' pricing is anything to go by. I'd fully expect a £349.00 price tag.

Interesting

I would buy immediately at £300. £350, depends what comes bundled. If it comes with the new Zelda for £349.99 then STFU and take my money, Nintendo.

If its £350, im not sure how they can justify that price tag. However, we shall wait and see

Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single-player and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch dock that connects the console to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting the Nintendo Switch console from the dock, it will instantly transition to handheld mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on a train, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of the Nintendo Switch console. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con controllers can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch consoles together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“With this first look at Nintendo Switch, I hope fans are already imagining the possibilities of having the freedom to play when, where, and how they want to,” said Satoru Shibata, president of Nintendo of Europe. “Our teams at Nintendo, and many other developers, are all working hard to create new and unique experiences, and we look forward to showing you more.”

Developers can design their games supporting a variety of play styles which gives gamers the freedom to choose an experience that best suits them. Some of the publishers, developers and middleware partners announcing support for Nintendo Switch are as follows:

505 Games
Activision Publishing, Inc.
ARC SYSTEM WORKS Co.,Ltd.

What an ugly console. I sincerely hope the tablet holder isn't just that, and actually provides some extra graphical grunt, as this will get blown away by Scorpio and PS Pro if it doesn't. Looks like an extremely overpriced shield tablet with tiny controllers for smurfs. Unless they've got something up their sleeves, this is going to get smashed by MS and Sony.

I think the hardware isn't that attractive, though the concept is great. It'll be interesting seeing what happens with 3rd party support. It won't be a day one purchase, I made that mistake with the Wii U, but I'm excited to see how it all pans out.

I don't think Nintendo see themselves as in competition with Sony and MS anymore (whether you think they should be or not). The Wii marked a move away from them trying to compete on a 'normal' console level (graphics/power etc.)

Looked nice to me as long as you can use a normal controller "on the go" too

The Tegra 2 runs really hot, they won't put an open fan on a handheld I don't think. It'll be the first chip (as rumoured) or something custom in between. The dev kits have T1's overclocked allegedly.

The split controller bit was the best bit! I loved hands by my sides Wii gaming. Glad it's back. Hope I can do it when it's docked too.

It looks amazing! I'm with the people above, if Nintendo really want to get back in the game they should bundle it with Zelda or that 3D Mario game and launch at a sensible price point. It could seriously blow up sales wise if they do. Likelihood is it's a day one purchase in any case. Excited now!

Skyrim on the go just made it so much better X)

I just don't see how it's any better than a shield tablet? You can hook them up to a TV with mini HDMI, and no doubt there will be a Shield 2 coming soon with the same Tegra X2(?) processor. Just seems £349 for a tablet, smurf controllers and dock is expensive. That being said, that dock is suspiciously large, I'm sure it has some added functionality of its own. Also, I think the Wii U and Wii offered something different, something people actually liked, this is already old technology, if it had been a budget VR console then maybe, but it doesn't appear to be.

Nintendo's main USP is their software. They are now throwing some games at mobile, but if you want a full fat Mario/Zelda experience on your TV you have to buy a Nintendo console, for at least one more generation! True this is similar concept to the shield, but refined and hopefully delivered in a user friendly package with decent software.

Wow... took my breath away.. So fleible...

Home, on a big screen..
Away, on a smaller screen..
Instant multiplayer..
Multiple screens..
Traditional controllers..

Stunning idea, really hope this is a success, and pricing is right... we need innovation like this to keep things from going stale. Thumbs up from me

If it's gonna be £350 then I'll wait to Xmas 2017 where it'll be closer to £200-299

I think with Nintendo history, I should even wait further. 2018 Xmas maybe. Their 3rd party support dries up so fast that it's a joke (except the Wii).

I've been burnt more from Nintendo consoles than anything else.

Concept of the console, I'd use it for playing console games off the TV. I feel more 1 with the game having the screen on my lap in the dark wrapped in a blanket.

This concept may benefit me with the whole take it on the go, but as it sits. I don't need it, nor feel I want it.

They've barely dropped the Wii U price, you really think if it launches at £350 they'll chop £50 (or more) off in the first nine months?

I'm definitely getting it day one. One thing, no Rockstar?! *sigh* but there's a chance they could join up with Nintendo later.

Still, gonna get Zelda BotW for the Wii U as it's the final game (I'd assume so) and it'll only cost me £30.

The Wii U premium was selling for £99 at one point. Unsupported consoles don't sit at retail for ever.

The retail pricing from Nintendo isn't the price stores have to sell their stock at. It'll be a decent console war come Xmas 2017, so I don't see this sitting at £350 then, or it'll be bundled with games and probably a controller.

Hell, the xbox one S has been down to £225 and it's how old?

I'd suppose that Nintendo is going to make two NS bundles:

Basic £299.99
Premium £349.99

If the "Basic" comes with the essentials of home console bundle then I'll be happy with that. I'd have avoided the GamePad if the Wii U had been sold without it and wasn't required.

I wish they stuck with NX. It's pretty well known, but I guess they've gone with Switch as that advert really pointed out it was a 2 in 1 console. I think that's why I got bored it was more "our console does this" compared to games on it.

Nintendo has the tendency to come up with new names rather than use prototype titles.

Dolphin = GameCube (NGC)
Revolution = Wii
Project Café = Wii U
NX = Switch (NS)

It would have been a lot better if Nintendo had kept the name Revolution for the Wii than calling it "Wii".

Nintendo tried to offer 3D without glasses but that eventually died out and they don't focus on it anymore. In terms of gimmicks, Ninty's ahead of the competitors.

It looks nifty but since for the past 10 years nintendo failed to keep third party support for 2 different consoles and just churned out mario games, I am going to give it a miss for a couple of years to see how it manages with third party support on its third attempt
