    $300 US is too much. That... is deflating.

    it'sll be $400 in Canada based on current exchange rates.

    Very deflating.

    Straight into online services. Smartphone integration, free trial period, then paid service in Fall. Hm!

    300 is probably too much money. 250 was the cap where i thought it could be sucessful.

    Paid online, but it sounds like a lot better -- IM services et all.

    No Region Lock. Thank fucking god. Dragon Quest 11 is a day one import.

    time to crash, the dawn is up, the sun gleems out glorious ps4 sunbeams and i can trade those sunbeams and do whatever i want with them.

    Nah, 250 is honestly too cheap for the hardware to be decent.

    300 is a pretty good sweet spot. I would be worried if it was 250.

    Eh, everyone else does paid online. Annoying but not a big problem.

    Yeah, they're going all in on the single Nintendo device future.

    Hey guys remember the gamecube handle? Sure okay.

  • JragghenJragghen Registered User regular
    $300 nowadays is cheaper than the Gamecube when that came out.

  • SniperGuySniperGuy SniperGuyGaming Registered User regular
    Our online service is finally catching up to the bare minimum as everyone else!

    I swear to god if it still uses friend codes somehow

    Yes, but Nintendo's online services have traditionally sucked. They have to be at least feature parity with PSN/Live to even get a consideration.

    want to see full feature sets and pricing before i get bent out of shape about it. wasn't expecting it, but if they're charging money then i'm hoping they've got something worth paying for planned.

    Scratch that, phrasing suggest some hedging. "Console for the home... When you want to take t with you..."

    Edit: But also referring to it as having a handheld mode. This is a little more subtle than the third pillar DS business.

    Battery life: 2 1/2 hours to 6 hours?

    Switch: 3947-4890-9293
  • SniperGuySniperGuy SniperGuyGaming Registered User regular
    Oooh USB type C, that's nice.

    2 hours of battery for something like Zelda is expected but also kinda rough.

    they're not going to fully commit to the 'one device' strategy till they see how the Switch does. this is the whole '3rd pillar' thing all over again.
