Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

I don't think it's easily doable. The current Shield tablet sells for £169 in a very barebones package that doesn't even come with a USB cable, let alone a dock and controller. Also, that's based on the older Tegra K1 chip and X1 tablets are typically much more expensive, like the Google Pixel C at...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

the end of the day average consumers will see this as a tablet that can be played on the tv. And what's wrong with that, coming from Nintendo, one of the leaders of handheld and home gaming? I see it offering far more than either my Android or iOS devices. Nothing wrong with that, i was pointing ou...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

This is promising to be the most powerful handheld games device by a margin that's frankly ridiculous. If they can do it for £200, I'll be buying two; well, assuming they don't find some other way to screw it up, of course. There's no reason why they can't, its just basically the next gen nvidia sh...

Re: Game Charging for VR demo

No surprise from GAME, how they are still trading with their rip off prices, just put one of their stupid staff members to look after people trying it, give them 5 mins each, but too charge for something they are trying to sell, i guess they will charge to play on their console set ups next!

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

"Nintendo Switch is a home gaming system first and foremost" that's been quoted from Nintendo, you see they are already confusing gamers again with what it's supposed to be! :x The comparisons with the Lynx and Gamegear were todo with size, I was measly pointing out Nintendo fans laughed and pointed...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

On the power question, I'm expecting a sizeable step up from Wii U. People like Bethesda and From Software wouldn't be signed on if they thought the machine would struggle with the games they put out. I'd expect it to be roughly in the same ballpark as the 'stock' Xbox One and PS4, but slightly beh...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

The trouble is they said this is their home console first, so no matter what the whole tablet part is a gimmick, it compromises the home console by reducing its possible power with portability, yet the portable side isn't very portable, the lynx and game gear were slagged off for being too big and n...

Hopefully, I'd take a cheaper pack without the handheld and horrible controller, give me the pro controller anyday!

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

Looking forward to it. Yes there are plenty of pitfalls and I'm not too sure on those tiny controls,but I love the idea of a handheld that becomes more powerful when it's plugged into a docking station for TV use. Nintendo still has strong presence in the handheld department, so it kind of makes se...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

I'm not sure on this one. Ok, so I will probably get it at launch, beacause I am a mug, but don't see how this will grab Nintendo a bigger slice of the gaming market.. Exactly, in fact I can't see casual gamers buying into this at all, the Wii was different, brought family fun and something differe...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

Doesn't look too bad... but what of my Wii-U?! Unlikely I'd get this - unless there is something out of this world released as an exclusive. And even then it's unlikely! Why can't they just release an absolute BEAST of a machine that blows the competition out of the water instead of mucking around ...

Sorry Nintendo that trailer was very poor, very American and very poor, oh I said that, more gimmicks that no one will really use as a home console, people use mobiles not a big tablet on the move, where is the must have games that are exclusive? A couple of old Wii u games in mario kart and splato...

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

To be fair Opulence, you basically said no one will be playing it in X amount of time. That's presumptuous. Personally, I'm still not convinced it will take off, mainly because it's a peripheral device that's more expensive than the console it's created for. What!? Again it's just as presumptuous f...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

100% of people exited right now will become 10% when they see the trailer, Its been hyped up way too much, even more than the Ps2! I can't see Nintendo bringing mass appeal with specs, the best part for me is the choice of carts, this with 3rd party support might persuade me.
