With the report of two new Nintendo Switch revisions coming later in 2019, I break down eight improvements I'd like to see in the new consoles.

Everything listed seems plausible and reasonsble. Though im not sure how realistic it would be to expect better battery life with a bigger, higher res screen and more processing power.

Apple normally manage it.

Honestly most of that progress in power efficiency was notably during Steve Jobs's final days in the company.

The iPad-to-iPad 2 most notably had such an astonishing improvement while retaining battery life, and that was because of the improvements made in power efficiency from the die-shrink (45nm transistor to 32nm).

We'd be able to see an improvement if Nvidia would provide a Tegra chip with either a die shrink from 28nm to 12nm or upgrade the Switch with the latest Volta-based Xavier SoC.

It's a Nintendo product so dont expect them to do much especially trying to impress children which the switch is for.

🚨 Troll alert!! 🚨

Depends on di shrink reduction for the chipand if it's a newer chip with more performance per watt. If they choose an oled screen they would save battery life for equal size while having a better picture

all l want is a stand that isnt on one side so it's useless and a charger port not at the bottom so l dont have to buy an accessory to play on said kickstand.

also have the ability to turn off the console with the hold home button. so far all it does it put to sleep l believe and thats a battery drain if you forget about it.

l love the co-op on the go joycons so l dont want to see them frozen on.

I just want a console... Cut out the screen and portable idea. Give me a console for less money and I'll buy one

Yes, you and five other people. Terrible idea

I need to jump on the Switch train, I'm tired of packing my PS4 with me when I travel for work. At least it doesn't have a massive brick...looking at you OG Xbox One of mine.

Besides BOTW, what do you guys recommend for a gamer who hasn't played a Nintendo console since NES?

Xenoblade chronicles 2 it's a really good rpg

NoHoHank10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Is it a jrpg? Those are usually not my speed.

stupidusername10d ago

It’s very much a jrpg - full of cringy laughs, talk about friends and perv jokes.
It totally threw me of the game, though I can see that it is a good game. But it’s not my cip of tea.

King_Noctis10d ago

Definitely Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2, Mario Odyssey, and Yoshi for some light platforming fun.

Also you are in a real treat this year. So many awesome games are coming to the Switch.

Razzer10d ago

if you don't like JRPG then skip Xenoblade 2.

Bayonetta 2, Smash, Doom

As a ps4 guy who just got a Switch last week, I can say you wouldn't be disappointed. Offers something completely different to ps4 that you wouldn't get if you went to something like Xbox instead.
Joy con controllers feel a little light and cheap but the unit itself is nice and most of the software is unique from the type offered elsewhere.

GoldeneyeOO710d ago (Edited 10d ago )

New Super Mario Bros 2 U Deluxe. Cuphead comes out in a week or two. Civilization 6.

Zeldafan6410d ago

Even if you don't play Xenoblade Chronicles 2 you should definitely still check out it's soundtrack. One of the greatest soundtracks EVER, along with the first game.

SkatterBrain10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

you can get a Vita and a 5g hotspot and play your PS4 anywhere, as long as its connected at home and ps now is supposed to let you enjoy your favorite playstation games anywhere you got a screen and internet and controller, havent tried it but sounds cool , i was playing god of war and GTA5 on my vita like that
