Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The Switch presentation needs a lot of surprises else the launch period isn't going to be anything thrilling. Rejigged Wii U games aren't going to attract new people to Nintendo, and only big Nintendo fans will re-buy Wii U stuff. I was going to get U Breath of the Wild but might 'switch' to give me...

After the X-wing VR mission, hard not to immediately anticipate VR snowspeeder, speeder bike, Falcon, lightsabre duel...! Bound to be some in SW Battlefront 2.

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

I'm yet to be affected by the joys of Sony's penny-pinching but getting a 4K telly soon. Hoping that switching off HDR on the PS4's settings will prevent blackouts.

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

I'm probably getting a Switch, but might switch to PS4 for Yooka-Laylee to be on the safe side.

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

Erm... Why does the forum replace the word 'Cheap MDF rubbish' with 'Cheap MDF rubbish'?! Although I expect it'll now say those 3 words for both!
