Nintendo Switch?! Yep... that's the name! Check it out!

Many gamers have known that it was going to be a portable console that would also double as a home console... but what got my attention was the ability to enjoy multiplayer action with half of the connectable Joy-Con controller for multiplayer action. 

I don't know exactly how comfy that will be, but it looks interesting. I'm still not completely sure if there would be online action available when you're on the go... but I really hope so. The 3DS can connect to the internet and it would just be a step backward if we can't. 

The ability to connect multiple controls may sell someone that has multiple family/friends around to get in on the action... but for those of us that don't want to crowd around the small screen (at least not that often), it's important to have an online ready option when portable. 

At home it's a bit more of a... duh... but yeah, I hope they don't sleep on the obvious because it will open one of the biggest doors that can take this system to the next level (besides great games). I really do hope that bigger 3rd party developers stick with it. I don't give a damn about trying to roll with a fad, some games will have that option... like if Lara Croft & The Temple of Osiris were on the system (but no to the no to the hell no when it comes to flood of fad games). I want to appreciate the system in various ways and I hope that it's successful in it's own way because it will be that portable option that not only gives us a way to play potentially awesome 3rd party games on the go... we will have Nintendo's line up. I'm excited to see where this goes, and I expect to see a list of games soon among other info like the price because March is around the corner. We will see what Nintendo has to say, but I think it would be an extremely horrible (i'm talking horrible) idea to wait until 2017 to show more. I expect a Nintendo Direct to lay things out before next year so that people can prepare to $ave.

I don't need to see pre-existing games in a launch showcase. I want to see the new of the new.
The rest (if pre-existing) can be listed at the end as "Also available" or something.

I think Nintendo took what was going to be multi-Wii U gamepad capability and just rolled that concept into new tech that didn't require them to go back and figure it out with something that would've been a struggle to pull off. I believe that the connectivity between N-Switch devices in portable mode is one of the smartest moves when someone wants to play multiplayer games on the go... like (hmmm) Monster Hunter or even (a new) Xenoblade game, but I can't sleep on Mario Kart or Splatoon either. The question that comes up with that is... "Nintendo, how long is the battery life?". Running to an outlet in an hours time... would suck (like super seriously!).

(I have another ponder) You know how the N-Switch base station? The thing that makes it go... home console? Yeah. Anyway, if that is some sort of device that enhances the graphics while on the big screen... I could see that being upgradable down the road. The portable part of it can remain the same, if they are able to work it out that way... which can prolong the system technically by upgrading a portion of it, versus the full console like the PS4 & Xbox One. The console will be here in the blink of an eye. Wait a minute, I just blinked. NVM! :p
