It's amazing how close it looks like to the leaked images a few months ago. Still before I board the hype train I want to see the games and know if third parties will be supporting it.

From what I have seen I like what it does there is no seperation between home and on the go. Also the most important part for me its running skyrim now I will have a portable version of it when I go out. I was never temped by the Pro PS4 for reasons I have mentioned in other posts. PSVR still interests me but I need to see more from it before I bite. Now we have Switch which does what I want home/away does not matter any more. I do not expect the specs to be fantastic Nintento for me have never been on top in that way but they do always innovate more so than microsoft or sony.

Looks excellent - perhaps not the most comfortable controller to hold, though. But all in all it's impressive. Think I might need to get one.

That looks like a pretty revolutionary console along the lines of the Wii. Fair play Nintendo!

It looks perfect for my lifestyle! Doesn't seem very ergonomic or sexy though...make it white and use the SNES buttons color pattern Nintendo!

It's interesting to see the reaction to this reveal online has been largely positive, and surprising to me because I thought the reveal was very anticlimactic. The name is horrible, but it's just a name. We can live with that. What concerns me with the console is the design, and the demographic that they're aiming for with this system.

Who, actually, is it for?

It's a system that has a heavy slant towards portable gaming at a time when portable gaming is dying because everyone has smart phones. If you don't care about the portability of the system, as I don't, and as a great many other gamers don't which we can extrapolate from lukewarm portable system sales in recent years, then who does this benefit? The kids who will lose the controllers after five minutes or the grown ups who just want to sit on the couch after a hard day at work?

I'm not trying to be a negative nancy, but I just really don't understand the thought process behind this gimmick.

Beyond that, there's little else to go on. It'll be interesting to see what the home console aspect of the system is like. Once we've seen the interface, the trophies (?), the specs, etc. etc. then we'll know whether there's more to be interested in beyond the gimmick.

Also, price could cripple this thing if the snapping/switching technology puts this thing any higher than $299. If it's $399 or more then I think it'll really struggle.

Anyway, until we know how the system works and what the home console portion is like, I'm not sold.

^ Good points, I must say. But I feel like this is what the WiiU should have been like ... ALSO WAIT A SECOND! this thing hasn't got a D-pad! How do I play fighting games ;_;
Still, I love portables so I am in the market for this thingy

I have mixed feelings. The console part look's great but mobile gaming does nothing for me. I would rather have a more powerful "console" then being able to take it on the go. That said Zelda look's amazing and I'm really happy for Nintendo fans that they are FINALLY getting more 3rd party support.

@Johncalm No more waiting to get home to carry on the game just play in your breaks at work or on the way home. What they have created is a product that has both markets home and out of the home. For me thats the important part. No more putting up with a toned down portable version of the game you have the same where ever you are. I think its a lot better system then the Wii U. I have not bought a Nintendo since the Nes days so this will be my first in many years.

@Feena: Look at 1:30. Looks like an alternative pad can be used which has a dpad.

Oh great, now I have to buy a PS4 Pro, PSVR, a 4K TV AND a Nintendo Switch. Thanks a lot, games industry, bankrupt me why don't you?

@Shellcore: true! I see it a 1:24, thank you for pointing this out. This is cool because Nintendo usually doesn't make you pay for online playing...I basically pay Playstation plus just to play a couple of fighters and it feels so unfair!
