    Default NINTENDO⁽ᴿ⁾ Switch

    The NINTENDO⁽ᴿ⁾ Switch seems quite interesting to me. I only have a few questions:
    1. What games will be on there?
    2. What type of cartridge will it use?
    3. Will it make the Wii U obsolete?
    If you didn't see the trailer, you can watch it here:

    1) Zelda. Everything else announced/speculated is rehashed ideas and ports. Yes Zelda is also a rehashed idea/port, but are you excited to play yet another iteration of Skyrim, or the 3rd Japanese Nintendo console release of Dragon Quest X?

    2) Not announced yet. But it's probably some SD flash card like the 3DS

    3) The WiiU is already obsolete.
    *Attention* A few of my uploads are offline. It should just be some small games, I will reupload them eventually. Nagging me if you see something offline might make me reupload them faster, or slower, who knows...?

    I have to say that the Switch does look interesting to me. However I am still skepitcal about a few things. I do like that it will be using cartridges. The controllers or Joy-Cons as they're called look sorta flimsy to me, but who knows, they could be pretty durable. I also wonder how seamless it will be to play on your TV, then pick up and go right where you left off. Overall it does look pretty interesting, but I'm gonna wait until we get more info on the system.

    Very curious about the specs, although I would argue hardware won't carry you the whole way. Nintendo has been good at releasing fun games on hardware that isn't exactly cutting edge. This really seems like taking their successes in portable gaming to the next level, extending it to TV. I like Nintendo; I hope this succeeds!

    It's gonna be my first time playing Skyrim, I can't wait.

    10 PRINT"HELLO_WORLD"
    20 GOTO 10
    30 PRINT"OH CRAP I USED THE WRONG ASSEMBLER"
    40 PRINT"NOOOOOOO"
    50 PRINT"OOOOOOOO"
    60 GOTO 50

    As portable console it looks great, but as home console it's too weak and it's hardware is obsolete. However, Nintendo always had excellent 1st party games, it's just that on WiiU they weren't many. I have faith in new Mario, he never let me down, Zelda looks sexy but I'll play that on WiiU, and with just that it's not enough to interest me (I do like local connectivity, it's a right way to do it).

    Just checked my Mom's Amazon. I'm gonna have Skyrim on two consoles, she bought it for the PC.

    10 PRINT"HELLO_WORLD"
    20 GOTO 10
    30 PRINT"OH CRAP I USED THE WRONG ASSEMBLER"
    40 PRINT"NOOOOOOO"
    50 PRINT"OOOOOOOO"
    60 GOTO 50

    One day I saw a tweet saying that the Nintendo Switch will have 4 GB of Ram while the Wii U had 2 GB. I also saw that the Switch will have a gpu of Nvidia. It will also have 32 GB of internal storage.
