It's SLIGHTLY better. If so with the switch, it will wind up offering even short of what they do on Xbox One just in light of the fact that Nintendo Switch's fanbase is recovering a hard reset to zero. Gone is that Nintendo NX codename and au revoir Wii U, there's a new Nintendo console in town.
We'll find out for sure come Friday when the Switch presentation kicks off in Japan.
The reason is Nintendo's previous consoles. Will it kill them to give these key details up, or are they still indecisive? At launch, the Wii cost JPY 25,000 (around $213) in Japan with the USA price being $250.
The Nintendo Switch was first revealed late a year ago, to show us a bit of its hardware.
However, it looks like the posting was a slip up so the listing was immediately taken down. On the listing page, it states that the Nintendo Switch is "out in 68 days on 17/03/2017".More news: Jose Mourinho Reveals Bastian Schweinsteiger Will Get Chances In January
In terms of launch dates, March 17 has been floated as the European date (again by Laura Dale of Let's Play Video Games, ) citing sources at both Nintendo and game-making partner Ubisoft. A huge leak from GameStop Germany already posted the entire game line-up and release date on its website, so you can't really beat that. After all, given that the franchise is one of Nintendo's mainstays, it only makes sense for the Nintendo Switch to have one.
As intriguing of a product the Nintendo Switch may be to many gamers, the price tag that's eventually assigned to it will still go a long way towards determining its marketability.
The introductory price of the much awaited Nintendo SWITCH Console, an upcoming game console to be released by game manufacturer Nintendo, was "accidentally leaked" as a product listing by United Kingdom game seller "Gameseek".
There's a good few hours between the press conference and Treehouse Live, which gets underway at 2:30PM UK time, 9:30AM ET and 6:30AM PT. "The public will be able to participate in future hands-on events around the same time, details of which will be announced later".
Fans should be aware that Nikkei has been correct with its Nintendo speculation before so there may be some credibility here.
