I saw this reported on elsewhere too. You're still getting all nintendo developers behind it, and you know indies will get behind it too. But yeah forget about 3rd party AAA.



It's the Wii U all over again. First year hype. 3rd party jumping ship after they realize they have to downgrade their graphics.



You're right
They have to downgrade from the next gen 3DS

Rumours are facts again

To everyone waiving the 'rumors should be ignored' flag: we know everything there is to know about Switch from leaks way before Nintendo says anything. Nintendo has been a leaky ship these last couple years. Plus dev kits are in the wild, so lots of people know the specs. They sign NDAs but they can easily remain anonymous by calling their friends in the media and telling them to keep their name secret. Or just go on some forum. The article today got their info from TWO separate sources. What are the chances that 2 confirmed devs cooked up the exact same specs?

So call it a rumor if you want, but based on history and based on it coming from different leakers, its 99% likely to be true.

That being fake should make us all wait for ACTUAL info before saying everything is true.

Leaks are still happening. The leak today was from multiple confirmed sources. This fan mockup had no sources.

But they are selling it as a console/portable hybrid and most importantly, they will be charging a console price. It deserves its feet to be held to the fire at console price. If they come in at $199 then fine, call it a portable.

The last 3 portable consoles all started at $249

And how did they do at that price?

Again this is using venturebeat as source. Their article doesn't make sense and is full of contradictions and dumb statements.

Well, yeah, we've known this since before it was called the Nintendo Switch.

That still doesn't make this site a reliable source. If you wanna b**** about Emily Rogers and Laura Kate Dale, then you must know that they have a track record and is mostly positive (for Rogers) and close to flawless (for Dale). That's why those get more than the benefit of the doubt.

This guy? Yeah, this guy said that the NX was going to use AMD, and see how that went.

MCV picked up the story:

http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/nintendo-switch-won-t-be-as-powerful-as-the-ps4-report-claims/0176760

"This means the console will offer around one teraflop of processing power – that’s less than a quarter of that found in the PS4 Pro (4.2 TF) and just over half that found in a regular PS4 (1.8 TF).

The report adds that the plan had been to use Pascal, but that ‘the timing just didn’t work out for Nintendo’ as the company rushes to replace the discontinued Wii U. It is also concerned about the possibility of rivals releasing competing portable-home hybrids.

The use of the more recent Drive PX 2 Tegra, which can pump out 4K at 60fps, was also considered but was dismissed because of the amount of redesign needed to make it run properly in a portable device."


After Vita I don't see Sony in a big hurry to make a portable. The only portable that makes sense for them would be a fully portable PS4 that plays PS4 entire library. I think we are a ways off from that tech being affordable.

remember when ps2 was weaker than xbox but still became a massive seller regardless?

Remember Wii U? I don't
