It holds a lot of potential. Especially if you look at it from a developer's point of view. I'm going to try my damn hardest to get a license to develop for the NX. Also, I don't see this as a multiplayer console, I see it as a handheld with console as a second thought. It just might replace the Wii U. Posted

Switch Matches the fun free style of Nintendo more imo. Also the Wii U is already dead. Replacing it wouldn't even be hard. Posted Edited by ElzoBro

    Good: -somewhat portable -single-system multiplayer Bad: -(could replace 3DS (which would be very bad because it has FEWER features)) -capacitance touch screen
    AFAIK capacitance is the only way to make multitouch, which is a total must IMO. And you can make a nice capacitance stylus anyway, which I'm certain Nintendo will be including (it'd be very non-Nintendo of them not to.)

Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength I feel like capacitance touch screen wouldn't be much of a problem since you generally either use your stylus or (blech) your finger for touching the screen. If you use anything else you run the risk of damaging the screen. And capacitance is probably the simplest way of implementing multi touch anyway. Posted
  • #25 ✎ 74 DrZog Hoping for some sort of backwards compatability with 3ds at least, even though the cart slot looks incompatible (fewer pins). If not bc, pray for the unlikely smilbasic port! Posted
  • #26 ✎ 115 mystman12 First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies I think it looks great. It will make it so much easier to play multiplayer with friends. 3DS requires other players have a system, and Wii U would be a pain to take some where. This would eliminate both problems! I really just hope it has a touch screen... Because no touch screen would most likely mean no SmileBASIC! D:
    How big is it? (also why has nobody commented on the lack of a d-pad? I'm sure it won't be a huge problem now that everything uses the analog sticks anyway, but it's one of those things that I expected people to make a big deal over)
    Yeah, I noticed that too, but the Pro Controller actually does have a proper D-pad, so there's not much to worry about.

Programming Contest Winter 2016 Contest Runner Up I placed 2nd in the SmileBASIC Source Winter 2016 Contest! Programming Contest Why I think Nintendo Switch doesn't have a touch screen.
    1. In the trailer, you never see anyone touch the screen. The actors always use the buttons to do stuff.
    2. Anytime you see a screen in the trailer, you never see any kind of interface where you have to touch the screen.
    3. AFAIK there is no stylus.
    4. The console doesn't have two separate screens to deal with like the Wii U: the gamepad's screen displays the exact same thing the TV would.
    5. A friend of mine brought up a good point: you can't use the screen when playing in docked mode, so why bother making a touch screen.
    (EDIT) Quote from IGN: When asked if the Nintendo Switch will have touchscreen support, Nintendo declined to comment. "We will make additional announcements about the Nintendo Switch hardware later, before the launch of the product," Nintendo told IGN.

    This is what it was thinking as well, but I mean, they could still use a toucscreen in certain cases, they'd just need to make it sure it wouldn't hamper the experience. For example, Mario Maker could still work, but you could only build levels with the NS in portable mode, or in SmileBASIC you could only use the touchscreen keyboard on portable mode, but you could still really play your creations in both modes. Obviously it wouldn't be as convenient as those things age on Wii U, but is hate to see those abilities striped entirely.

    Ooh! Maybe that's what the base console is for! Backwards compatability. With a disc drive. It would be local use only but it's something, right?

    That means extra hardware in the base and thus higher prices. I doubt it.

    The console will use cartridges for the games. And no backwards compatibility as the GCN, Wii and Wii U were powered by PPC, and the Switch is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra. But there's probably Virtual Console for those. Or ports.
