Negetive thoughts about it
Did I see Skyrim?
Please don't let Steam come to a Nintendo system.
Steam is amazing software, but community is not as good, it's like the nice parents with bratty kids.

Positive thoughts about it
The design looks freaking amazing.
I hope it's an affordable price because this looks like everything I wanted.

Skyrim does not necessarily equate to Steam coming onto Nintendo, but if it was possible to have Nintendo variants of Steam Games, I would love it. They would not have to add the community stuff, simply gaming functionality.

I wonder about the backward compatibility of it.
If it can play WiiU and 3DS games I'm so buying it.

If it's just WiiU games then maybe not.
If it's just Switch games then I'd be sad, but oh well.

Except Nintendo has Miiverse, and they might incorporate that to Nintendo Switch.

According to articles, it won't have physical backwards compatibility to 3DS and Wii U, so there might be hope for digital.

...But that might just leave us physical buyers with a problem...

I have to admit... it's quite the unique concept and I definitely like the looks of it.

I never got a Wii U because none of the games interested me in any way, shape or form except for Pokken Tournament and I wasn't about to get a system for what is basically one game only.

Now if Pokken Tournament gets re-released for this...

Or if there are games that interest me...

I might get this one.

We'll see.

I'm just sitting here praying that Nintendo doesn't mess this up. If that thing is powerful enough to run Skyrim anywhere, then it's gonna be amazing...IF it runs smooth. Please don't let it be all jumpy and laggy...

The games for the switch look downright amazing.
But the paid Internet service really turned me off....

I just hope this doesn't become a regular of Nintendo.
That being said, the Switch does look amazing.

They need to maintain their servers somehow. *shrug*

EDIT: http://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-confirms-switch-actually-supports-sdxc-memory-cards-up-to-2tb/

Well that's a relief.

I mostly feel the same way, but stuff like Breath of the Wild and other single player games don't require internet, so those should be still worth contemplating.

Though yeah, I'm already turned away... We have enough bills. D:

For those complaining about paying for online services: http://nintendoeverything.com/reggie-on-steady-stream-of-switch-games-reason-for-paid-online-system-wont-have-friend-codes/
I don't blame them for a paid online service, and it's perfectly in their right....
I'm just still disappointed about it.
Not disappointed with Nintendo, just disappointed.

Even with the paid online service Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild look amazing, and don't require online to play.
