I see NS ending up as possibly Nintendo's second best selling console

Gemmol217d ago

I can see that too, but at same time I'm not too worried about it selling out, all i know this system before its retired I will have way more games on it then i had for ps4, ps3, ps2, ps1, Wii U, GameCube and N64 combine

waiting for the redesign

Gemmol217d ago (Edited 217d ago )

I can't wait 4 years, but when it comes out i will still get it, and keep the original i have now.........all Nintendo handhelds redesign after 4 years

You a better man than me to wait that long, but i understand you will get a lot of games cheaper by that time, but good luck to you

I'll also go your way and double dip. Dont think id need a larger screen just a more efficient system with a better battery and a smaller bezel would be enough.

I want a larger screen with smaller bezel. Maybe upgrade the screen to 1080p (would be difficult but not impossible). Also, if it could be slimmer that would be awesome.

Dude, just get the switch now and when a revision comes out, you sell your old one. The value is in having the games and being able to play them, the hardware is just a vehicle.

Don't hold your breath on it; this is the first real Hybrid console that any of the console makers have ever made, so there's no guarantee that Nintendo will treat it like the 3DS by doing revisions in short order.
