So the trailer for the new Nintendo console dropped a couple days back.

Anybody else hyped for this?

It's weird for sure. Very Nintendo. I'll be buying one I'm sure.

Pass, but I would be passing anyway. My last Nintendo system was the GameCube, which I won in a contest. I barely played the thing, as I realized that I just was not interested in Nintendo's games anymore.

That controller looks awkward.

A statement that has been true of every Nintendo console release since the N64.

Not sure how I feel about this one. The lack of AAA titles for the current system has drove a lot of gamers away. They need to refocus on getting great games and stop with the gimmicks. The new console really just looks like it's a remodeled WiiU.

I'm not a big gamer, but usually go for Nintendo because I love Mario and Zelda games. That being said I have no idea what they have against regular controllers.

That's what makes me think they simply can't compete anymore and are hoping new gimmicks will do what the original Wii did for them.

Nintendo burnt a lot of AAA publishers and developers back in the day with their damn extreme use of Nintendo only technology and the rights to some games they simply won't let go of the control that once held back in NES and SNES days.

They could easily make the Switch one the biggest sellers if they put a huge HD in it and they finally opened up their back catalog and sold NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Gameboy, GBA, DS, Wii, Wii-U games available as digital downloads for reasonable prices (say $1 a most NES, SNES, Gameboy, and GBA games with popular titles for about $5 and $10-15 for games on more recent systems) if they can get other games from the various Sega, Atari, Neo Geo platforms they would make even more money with an easy to use interface and all their games should feature both local and online multiplayer and in some cases they can add HD remasters to certain games and make sure that players would OWN all their games and not be a monthly rental (and some of those NES and SNES games are take forever to beat). Then with own games and whatever recent 3rd party publishers and developers they might have a shot. That right there would make the Switch and their new online feature at least more appealing to me. I mean that mini NES was something a lot of people wanted.

But their silly controllers and the whole it's a console that you can take on the go so I can play Skyrim isn't enough to make me want one or buy one.

Yeah, playing anywhere isn't a big draw for me either. I wish them luck, but I think they are once again, moving in the wrong direction. Another mediocre selling console is the last thing they need at this point. It really wouldn't surprise me if they initially start shipping a tiny amount to create a buzz as they have done in the past (like the recent NES Classic edition). Once those people are satisfied though, I don't see it making a big splash.

So did anyone get one?

I'll confess to being intrigued by Zelda despite my overall lack of enthusiasm when it comes to Nintendo. Not enough of an excuse to spend $300, that's for sure.

We bought one. Zelda might be worth $300 by itself. I assume though there will be a holiday bundle later in the year.

They definitely rushed the launch. I'll be waiting for Switch lite or mini or whatever the next slightly changed iteration is.

What a nightmare of a launch. Another gimmicky device prone to a lot of issues that could have been easily prevented with a moderate amount of testing. There is no excuse for a controller to be able to click into place backwards and then not come back off.

Instead of trying to bring a next gen console to compete with Sony and MS, they choose to make a jacked up version of a Gameboy that already is glitching and prone to lots of bugs. In the press release the controller is so amazing that it even detects the difference between pouring water and ice cubes. But in the Youtube clip you see the controller not responding, freezing and even having issues with wobbling when connected to the screen. I really love how the cradle is so poorly designed that it actually scratches the screen when you put it in place. Sad....

Well, looks like I will soon own my first Nintendo console in a long, long time. The wife had the lovely idea of buying me one for my upcoming birthday, and as timing would have it, Gamestop put a new bundle up for pre-order that we were able to jump on. The bundle includes Zelda and Mario Kart 8... Zelda for me, and Mario Kart for the wife and I to play together.

Fingers crossed it's not silly with defects.

I bought one for the Zelda game which is freaking awesome! Definitely worth buying. I've had no problems with bugs or anything, but I only play a couple hours at night at the most. Plus I got the complete warranty from gamestop. If anything does go wrong they replace the whole thing, no questions asked.
