My predictions:

1. The NES Classic will outsell it.
2. Sales figures and developer support will approximate the Wii U.
3. It will be nicknamed the Nintendo Ditch, for developers and gamers ditching it shortly after launch.

So... it's what the Wii U should have been?

Nintendo's new system is a PSP

They should have stopped at Nintendo 64. It's been embarrassing ever since.

They need to go the way of Sega and just license their stuff for development on other systems. I'd buy the shit out of Mario and Zelda games for my PS4 but I won't he buying their new system.

I need to see specs, pricing and details of backwards compatibility. Allow me to download Virtual Console purchases from my WiiU, cost around $300-$350 and announce Fire Emblem, Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros and I'll be tempted to pick it up. The video showed Skyrim playing so it's safe to figure that there is some decent power under the hood for once.

The amount of weird japanese stuff that nintendo has a choke hold on is kind of crazy too, not even just their 1st party stuff. I'd kill for a monster hunter game on anything but a 3ds at this point.

I think Nintendo has their market sewn up. People keep wanting them to compete with Sony and Microsoft when they clearly have no desire to.

I've played every new generation of Nintendo consoles less than the previous one. Unfortunately, I won't be buying this one at all.

Hmm looks pretty cool.

Is the the new Gameboy or already a WiiU replacement?

I read that it is a successor to the WiiU. A Gameboy (actually 3DS) successor is coming later.

Tegra CPU and Pascal GPU.

Hmm. Sounds like solid hardware, right?
Always was a fan of Nvidia.

Tegra is what powers the shield and its impressive, while Pacal is their new GTX 1000 line of gpus which are currently the best on the market.

I'm not a console player, but it looks like silly gimmicky shit like all of Nintendo's past several consoles. That's cool though that they'll be able to play Skyrim on it, a game that's 5 years old now.

Exactly.

At this point port a Zelda and Super Mario to PS4 for VR.

Disagree. I believe people still want Mario.

The issue with the WiiU is "what the hell is that? Is that a huge gameboy or something? Or is it some kind of mutant console? Whatever, I'll buy an Xbox".

The Switch is a little different. They've gone to greater lengths to explain what it is. Still, I think it's an answer to a problem no one has. People would buy a new DS. People would buy a new Nintendo console. I don't think people will buy this.

I'd buy the Switch before an Xbox or Playstation just because I like the Nintendo line up(Zelda) and I don't play games often enough to care too much which is awesomer. When ever I get a newer console, I'll probably nerd out on some of the older Zelda games in a fit of awesome nostalgia. Conveniently some of those games are available on Virtual Console.

The list of 3rd party support ought to help sales a bunch. I remember reading some reasons why the Wii U didn't sell well. One thought was consumers maybe thought it was an upgrade, not a whole new machine.
