  • I'm sure they will put work into the general specs but it's the joycons that need the work. There needs to be a way to have a workable dpad and it would be cool if they could emulate a mouse in a similar manner to the lenovo legion.

  • They must call it the Super Switch. They must.
  • It will be BC. One million per cent certain.
  • Better joycons with drift free sticks, more robust connections to the console and without stick covers that are so easily removed that all of mine are missing them just because I have the gall to let my kids play games
    Not everything is The Best or Shit. Theres many levels between that, lets just enjoy stuff.
  • My SNES still works, my N64 controllers are in perfectly playable condition and my GC controller is solid as fuck.
    Do that again Nintendo, build the fucking things to last

  • And give it a suspend mode that actually suspends it

  • Mine suspends it. In both space and time.
    The hover is quite spectacular

  • If the JoyCons lasted they would've been pretty good. Even the directional dpad might've been excusable imo. The option to use them as a single pad is great for kids, they work as pointers and gyro thingies with HD RUMBLE. The problem is they don't last long if they're used and either suffer drift or stop working as solo pads. Based on my fag packet calculations you've got more chance of biting into KitKat and discovering solid chocolate than having a working JoyCon that's seen any sort of prolonged use.
  • Lol @ HD rumble

    @wookie - if you’ve been kidnapped and you’re trying to ask for help - it’s not on its way - hope they don’t bum rape you

  • I’ve got 2017 switch joycons which still work great though must say it’s unlikely they’ve seen as much use as wooks’ and moot’s
  • Tbf no console I've ever had has seen as much use as my Switch. The main unit has held up spectacularly well.

  • Mario Wonder looks lovely. If it's easy across the board it'll be bad but I reckon after Mario Maker they know their onions on this and it'll be brutal if you want the challenge.

    Whether or not I get a Super Switch, I reckon my OG will stay hooked up for a while. We've been through a lot together, me and that wee scamp.

  • I don’t understand how people are hoping to get some kind of (approximately) Series S level hardware into something roughly the size of a Switch Oled? I think MS were praised all over for their neat and tidy engineering design with their current consoles and we’re meant to expect Nintendo to do even better whilst also powering the screen and using a battery that will run all this for four or five hours? Seems too much like fingers crossed voodoo to me.

    I reckon the end product will be slightly less powerful than lower end expectations.  That's been the case with quite a few Nintendo consoles over the years.  I'd be fully erect for a handheld PS4/Xbox One level console, and maybe they could add more [RAM?  Memory bandwidth?] so it punches above its weight with ports.

    All guesswork at this point but i'd expect something between PS4 and Series S. The current gen consoles came at kinda a weird time when FSR and DLSS and ray-tracing tech was starting to be a thing, but it was all kinda early. After years of, lets say, power growth stagnation due to the emphasis on mobile and efficiency, there was finally some proper big leaps again. 

    The PS4 gen effectively covered the equivalent Nvidia period from the 980 up the the 2080 just launching, so right there at the end you get a huge leap. And...the PS4 and Xbox One were already kinda middle of the road (albeit capable) when they launched. So, both new consoles went with the shiny tech and small margins. Ideally they probably both would have liked to wait another year or two until all that tech was established and you could get more bang for buck, but both consoles were already long in the tooth. They had to get something out. 

    Some DLSS capability with lower resolutions (720/1080) upscaled to sth like 1440/4K seems not altogether unreasonable. It'll be downclocked for heat and battery life again, I imagine, which is normal for handhelds and mobile devices. I'm imagining some highly modified and slightly tripped down / bespoke circa-2018 to 2020 Nvidia setup (which are actually really decent and should work fine). They'll have plenty of grunt, they'll use Ampere (would genuinely be surprised if they didn't) and so it should end up to be a pretty nifty little device. 

    I'm not expecting crazy battery life. Sorry for those that think a new gen is a chance for a better battery but...that rarely, if ever happens, without making things much bigger.
