IKR, there's really only a few people who care too much about having a super powered system and those are probably the same people who buy those 1 TB hard drives for consoles that they'll probably never use half of :p. I think they'll do well if it's offered at a significantly lower price than PS4 and Xbox One. Wii U's only 50 bucks cheaper than PS4 and Xbox One and is a full generation behind them, the Wii was like 150 bucks cheaper when it came out and sold like hot cakes despite being a generation behind.

I don't know man. Games these days are like 50GB and eats up harddrive like crazy when you buy a lot of them lol. I just hope the Switch doesn't have that problem. Wagh

Really? Most games I've seen on console at least are generally 40 or less, 20-40 range.  At 50 gigs I could see an issue for sure after a while. Given the number of Hard Drive complaints they got on Wii U I'd imagine they'd give it a more robust hard drive, although if you use physical copies Wii U doesn't actually install the games and if Switch doesn't either that shouldn't be too big of a problem unless your big on downloading games....which would be totally valid since SD cards can be prone to getting lost (I know, my Pokemon X has been missing for two years ever since my Dad decided to poke at it like an idiot and drop it somewhere on me lol)

Hmm... now storage might be an issue on the Switch. It uses a storage technology that is not cheap compared to HDD. The reason is to fit inside the small space. But overall I'm positive about the Switch.

My main interest is how the Switch will use hard copies. Will they be CDs or will they be something new? I assume that they'll be CDs but I wouldn't mind seeing something new. I would love to see what Nintendo has to offer. However, with the Switch, I'm rather excited. I just hope that it can be a lot better than previous things they have sold.

There are two versions of Tatsumaki: Shine's version and Z's version.

I think it has already been confirmed that they are "cartridges". CD's or optical media would not offer pleasing loading times, nor would traditional sized ones fit the advertised size(physical size). Cartridges using flash memory similar to SD cards on cameras and mobile phones is more reasonable, plus each game can use the storage capacity it requires.

Yup. I think it's a good move, plus this is the first time I think since the Nintendo 64 that they are using cartridges, right? Whether intentional or not, that's pretty cool. 

Has it been confirmed that the Nintendo Switch are backward compatible with WiiU/3DS games?

Looks like Breath of the Wild is coming in March... for the United States. The rest of the world might face a delay.

There are reports that Nintendo Switch is not as powerful as the Playstation 4 and Xbone. Don't know why any of that means, but can this be considered a negative point for Nintendo?

These consoles are basically computers, but computers made for a specific task. The PS4 and XBONE have greater compute power than the Switch. But that's to be expected given the Switch's ability to be portable.

I wouldn't consider the lower computer power of the Switch a negative because it doesn't compete with the other consoles on the same turf. There are two things Nintendo is selling you with the Switch, the exclusive Switch games that you will need a Switch to play and the portability aspect of the Switch. As long as the games are smooth and responsive then that will be enough. I'm not worried about the Switch from a compute power point of view honestly.

Good, thank God that was just a rumor. Also I thought it was previously confirmed that it was in fact gonna use SD cards and wasn't going to be backwards compatible.
