Nintendo Reveals New System, Switch

The Nintendo Switch will debut in March 2017 and offers a hybrid, cart-driven console that can be docked or played on-the-go.

Holy crap this thing looks incredible! Nintendo knocked it out of the park. Can not wait for this thing.

Looks to be exactly what I expected after months of rumors. I'm not sold on using it as a portable, since I already find taking the Vita on the go to be a chore. But it's a cool idea.

If switching between TV and portable is as easy as docking/undocking it, awesome. I wouldn't mind taking along Breath of the Wild or Dragon Quest XI for long hours spent at Pep Boys or the doctors' office, then just being able to play it on TV at home during my gaming time. So many games on DS, 3DS, PSP, and Vita, I was always thinking, "If only these games could be playable on a console on my TV."

I can't believe we have to wait until March for this. Wonder what the price point will be!

It looks incredibly promising and I got quite confident once the support partners were revealed. I do wanna be cautious as I pretty much stopped letting the hype take over me, but so far it's a good step on the right direction.

I can dig it. I like where Nintendo is going with this. Looks like it could be practical. All they have to do is make eShop cross-purchasing a reality and I'll be sold on it!

I'm concerned about the sturdiness of the thing, but I can't wait to hear more announcements so I can find out.  Especially when they announce more games, as that's what interests me the most about new consoles.  I don't know why they couldn't have announced this earlier, though.  Oh well.
