    The Nintendo NX is officially revealed as the Nintendo Switch.

    I am so excited for this.



    I'm happy for many reasons.

    I no longer have to buy a separate Nintendo handheld and console. Pokémon on the TV!!!

    Back to cartridges! Yay! I loath the lengthy mandatory game installs of the XBOX one followed by the inevitable 40 plus gig day one patches. I had to wait through an entire day of installs, downloads and patches to play the Halo Collection. I'm beyond sick of that crap.

    No more Wii branding. I hated that name.

    I don't have to look back and forth between two screens like the WiiU and 3DS.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Looks awesome. I agree with you, I don't want to be bothered with updates and downloads and patches and loading times, there's a reason I always preferred console games to computer gaming, but now all the consoles are just as bad as the computers. I want the game system to be quick and simple, so I can get to the actual gaming. Nintendo always thinks about the ease of use and practicality, they get that gaming should be fun, not a chore.

    Cool! My group in NVIDIA worked on the processor for it. Can't wait to try it out next year.

    Some people are saying the controller looks like a robotic dog.

    Only 2 titles will be out for the launch. That doesn't seem like a good sign.

    I'm sure every store will get three on the launch, artificially creating a demand.

    So far five launch games have been announced. Which still isn't a lot better than when the N64 launched with only two. It's a shame Mario Kart couldn't make launch but at least it's only a month later.

    On the bright side many stores are offering pre-orders for the system. But, yeah, on launch day chances are probably slim you could just walk into a store and get one.

    Okay,I'm seeing 4 listed for the March 3rd launch. I missed Super Bomberman R and Skylanders Imaginators. I only noticed the new Zelda game and 1-2-Switch before. There's a bunch that says March 2017 but not an exact date.

    I guess I missed the preorders as all the online retailers say sold out. I might end up waiting in line at midnight like I did for the original Wii.
