Who doesn’t like gadgets? Well there’s a new one out from Nintendo called the Switch. Check out the details below.
Here is a n excerpt from the description posted on Wikipedia: “The Nintendo Switch is the seventh major home video game console developed by Nintendo. Originally known in development as the NX, it was officially unveiled in October 2016, and was released worldwide on March 3, 2017.
Nintendo considered the Switch a “hybrid” console. It is designed primarily as a home console, with the main unit inserted onto a docking station to connect to a television. Alternatively, it can be removed from the dock and used similarly to a tablet computer through its LCD touchscreen, or placed in a standalone tabletop mode playable by several people.
The Switch’s most distinguishable features are the Joy-Con wireless controllers, which include standard buttons and a directional joystick for user input, motion sensing, and high-definition tactile feedback. The Joy-Con can attach to both sides of the console to support handheld-style play, connect to a Grip accessory to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, or be used individually in the hand like the Wii Remote. The Switch supports both physical flash ROM cartridges and digital content for games and software, and does not use region locking”.
In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.
Timothy J. Seppala on Engadget.com wrote: The Friday through Saturday sales for Nintendo’s latest console surpassed the first two-day sales for any system “in Nintendo history,” according to tweets from the New York Times‘ Nick Wingfield. The info comes from an interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
Here’s short excerpt from a review over on TrustedReviews.com:
“However, after spending more time with the hardware, I’ve slowly but surely been won over by its charm. The problems remain, some far worse than others, but in spite of them the Switch’s versatility and accessibility make it a joy to play at times, particularly as a portable machine. Despite some of my current concerns with the hardware, it’s hard to argue this console isn’t absolutely brimming with potential in the months to come”.
In searches across the web the Nintendo Switch is getting about 4+ stars out of 5 in most reviews – and that’s from the tech crowd. They’re tough. As far as the Freedom Frontier is concerned, this thing looks like more fun than a barrel of beer nuts.
