If you feel like that Nintendo has not explained all of the Switch’s features and specs, they just have on their official site. They were announced with pictures, so we’ve included a gallery of them down below. There’s a lot of text, so keep that in mind.
Is that bad?
For a hundred bucks more you can get a PS4 Pro with a TB of memory and for 50 bucks less you can get a PS4 Slim 500GB with game bundle.
You’re forgetting that PS4 and XB1 NEED that extra space due to all the mandatory game installs they do.
Switch doesn’t do that thanks to cartridges, so it will be lighter on data usage.
Still, it’d be nice for us that like getting certain games digitally. Sure we can use Micro SD Cards & Switch them out in a minute but it would have been nice to have some initial strength of internal data, too.
Some people like to have their games digitally though, plus there’s the Virtual Console (with hopes of Nintendo finally adding GC games!), so 32GB still seems extremely low for a system releasing in 2017.
128GB is how many games? Give me a break. Those usb ports on the dock better be there for a reason.
So you expected a TABLET console to feature a harddrive… with a spinning disk….. are you stupid?
Also, if Nintendo added 2TB, you’re looking at a system that’d cost you $1500 and I’m not even joking as Tablets are much different from your standard console.
No one said that. All we said was 32 is too low, storage could have easily been double considering the current price of it.
The dock. Are you stupid?
That’s a kind of a reason that there shouldn’t be a tablet console.
Get one and fuck off
Yah I did. Just pointing out the obvious naeketing flaws that Im sure Nintendo paid a team of people to do and they all failed.
Yes 32GB plus 128GB expandable is not sufficient space for downloadable titles and patches in this current day and age especially when Nintendo expects us to carry the Switch around. Portability is a HUGE reason to go digital! Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to carry around all those extra cartridges?
There are also a lot of AAA third party titles have 10GB day one patches. Dishonored 2 & Final Fantasy XV are recent examples of this. Then there are games that are so buggy that you need to redownload the entire game due to an engine update (Assassin’s Creed Unity). Now if Nintendo could somehow allow cartridges to be patched directly…
SDXC 2TB DUH
Ok I legitimately didn’t know that they went up to 2TB but I did a quick google search and couldn’t find one bigger than 512GB- which was more expensive than the Switch itself. How much do you think a 2TB will cost when they finally release one?
Still doesn’t excuse the fact that they should have put a standard sized SSD in the switch.
Now, look over that research and what do it tell you??
It’s telling you that if Nintendo added in a 200GB + Storage then the Switch would cost as much as A FECKING MAC BOOK PRO!
Lol thats not true at all, distributers get OEM parts at a fraction of the MSRP price. Anyways an SSD was an example, just throw in a 1TB conventional drive then.
I’m honestly hoping the Game Cards will have extra free space right there on the card for patches, updates, & DLC. I’ve been speculating that as a possibility for awhile now.
I hadn’t thought about that. That would make the most sense, but would it be possible? The game cartridges would have to be writable.
I’m sure it could be possible some day if it’s not happening NOW. But since the Switch is doing HD Rumble & many thought that’d be too expensive right now, I say anything is possible at the moment.
You do know SDXC goes up to 2TB…. The Switch can handle 2TB but you’ll need a bigger wallet if you want one of those.
Ironic that they market the mobile aspect but hey dont forget those cartridges. And dont lose them *cough* mariokart7 *cough*
Seems we’re supposed to use SD cards.
Is that good?
I ain’t complaining. I can just use my 128 GB microSD card that I used to use for my smartphone.
I miss Iwata.
hmm custom tegra processor by nvidia I really wonder what it will be
It’s a Tegra NX chip that’s using Pascal Architecture from the GeForce line of cards.
Also, the joycons will cost you a hefty $79.99 for a pair of left and right, and $49.99 for only the left or only the right, plus an additional $29.99 for the middle piece/grip thingy. Pro controller is at $69.99. Too expensive, in my opinion.
All of those things come standard in the Switch package, though.
Except Pro controller. I’m pretty sure they specifically pointed out it would be sold separately. I guess I could be wrong. Maybe I should recheck. *shrug* Meh. I’ll do it later! *crashes flying hype train through an incomplete condominium* Oops…
Yeah the pro controller comes seperately. Everything else is included though.
The Pro Controller doesn’t, as mentioned by others. Also, accidents happen, and you might need to replace your controllers at some point, which isn’t a nice thing in itself, but knowing it might cost up to $110 isn’t exactly the best feeling, hah.
And I was wondering, do you need to have a whole additional Switch system for local multiplayer? Let’s say, for MK8? Would every player need their own system to be able to play together, or will another pair of controllers be enough? I either missed it, or it wasn’t clear in the presentation. I know they mentioned up to 8 players can play in local multiplayer if everyone has their own Switch, but is that the only option? If not, you’ll still need to buy the controllers in case you’re interested in local multiplayer with friends or family, even if one pair is included already.
@.@ Good thing I won’t need but what’s already inside the box when I get mine. A pro controller can wait as I want to give the Joy-Cons a run for their money the first month while playing Zelda! @.@ I hope I can preorder the damn console later. As soon as the wife is done taking our 4 yr old to his appointment concerning (how to explain WIC to someone not in the US… tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock) welfare food for children under… 8(?), straight to my hometown & straight for GameStop! Put 50 on it this month, then come hope & sleep like a baby… Unless I’m still wired! Damn it! I never should have watched that Switch Presentation! CURSE YOU, NINTENDO!!!
Shit. I said hope. I meant home. … Blah, fuck it! Whatever! *repairs flying hype train*
Tech specs need more elaboration.
Do you really have to buy one of these?
Why is there still no built in ethernet port?
I guess they don’t realize our phone carriers over here are greedy assholes that try to give us shitty internet. Luckily, the wi-fi here isn’t too bad and actually works fine most of the time.
But… playing online will be free or is the premium just for some extra online features? Nintendo doesnt seem to have been clear about that. At least not to me.
I think they said it will be a free service until Fall ’17 and then it will be a subscribed service.
Switch suddenly became very meh.
How does Nintendo igentligen? This was the perfect console to run on VR, no cable clutter and motion controls, but they had to save a few pennies by not equipping it with a 1080p screen …
I waited to buy a psvr, but now I feel like I would rather put money on it
They saved battery life, not “a few pennies.” It would have been significantly more money for a 1080p, which is unnecessary on a 6.2-inch screen, to sustain battery life.
And go ahead, go for the PSVR. It’s going to have a significantly smaller and lower quality library than the Switch, so that’s your loss. And no, I’m not being biased. VR is new, early games will be bad, and games will be sparse because it’s brand new in gaming.
So the plate has approximately the same screen resolution as the iPhone 7. Good that Nintendo is modern. But you do not think a higher resolution than that.
iPhone is not a standard setter, they’re always playing catch up in specs like Nintendo.
Why nobody is talking about the “With newly-added online play” on NES and SNES titles? It sound awesome.
Damn it! I forgot to mention that to the people I was telling about what paying for online will come with! OH well. They’ll find out eventually if they bother to look it up themselves.
Aha ok. Wonder if the plate comes with no “fixed charge” function with.
why not data traffic built?
While I’m a little worried about the fact they won’t fully reveal the features that come with online til after release, from what I’ve seen so far, I don’t think I have to worry. It’s nice to have a little confidence in Nintendo again.
Let me hope Nintendo can keep this up!

Nintendo once again being hush hush about the performance of their systems. If you’re that scared, just don’t make a weak system. 32GB? That won’t even last a day. No external storage support? LOL. As soon as those patches hit, the people who bought a Switch are going to realise that a 512GB SD card costs more than twice the cost they paid for the Switch. Thankfully as a big digital buyer, I am hoping to skip out on buying this disappointing thing Nintendo is trying to call a console.
Haha 32GB on a modern console. Hilarious they didn’t learn from the U.
