Like a snap of the fingers.

The most appealing part of the Nintendo Switch from a hardware perspective is its switching capability- the way it can seamlessly turn from being a home console to a portable to a standalone gaming unit, without having to fiddle with wires or connectors.

We’ve seen the Switching in motion a lot- but we’ve never actually seen it in real time so far. And there’s always some skepticism about whether or not something will actually work in real life as it has been advertised, especially something this radical. As it turns out, the Switch will.

Eurogamer got their hands on the Nintendo Switch, and they were able to demonstrate how the Switch’s switching works in real time. It’s pretty seamless- I think this will be a big part of the system’s ultimate appeal. I certainly know that it’s the most alluring aspect for me. The Nintendo Switch launches worldwide for $300, on March 3.

    Eurogamer also stated…

    “£60 for Zelda, a £20 premium over the Wii U version, which to the best of our knowledge is identical (though from what we’ve seen, it does run more smoothly on Switch)

    £50 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a port of a three-year-old Wii U game – a devastatingly good one, but still. £40 for 1-2-Switch, a collection of mildly amusing but totally throwaway party minigames that is more Wii Play than Wii Sports, and should have been thrown in free with the console.

    £60 for Splatoon 2, which barely qualifies as a sequel and is closer to being an expanded port of a game that cost half as much when it was released two years ago.

    It’s just not on. There aren’t enough games, and Switch owners will be gouged for the few that are released. (And for peripherals too – the second set of Joy-Cons you will need to play Arms in local multiplayer costs, wait for it, £75.)”

    OMG! and then the price is £280. “Nintendo is marketing Switch as a home console you can take with you”, BUT when “directly against PS4 and Xbox One, which are both cheaper and manifestly more capable. Experienced as a pure home console, Switch feels underpowered and outdated – a minor advance on Wii U, which was underpowered in its own day”
