    From what I've seen about the net, most of the third party game developers like what Nintendo is doing with the Switch.

    I'll believe it when I see games. I trust EA the least. They went on and on about how amazing the Wii U was before the release. Then they completely blackballed it, and even refused to release a completed game. I've only bought one game from them since then.

    I do believe the only EA game I ever bought was the 007 game to hack my PS2, and that was used when I bought it. Come to think of it I think the same game was used to hack my first XBOX too.

    I think EA was one of the devs on the fence about developing for the Switch, I think another one I read about was Naughty Dog.

    Something just occurred to me: I REALLY hope they add some sort of achievements system to the Nintendo Switch. I know they're pretty much meaningless, but they're fun. Saying you beat the game is one thing, but having proof that you did a play through without dying once is cool. Steam, Sony, and Microsoft all have achievement based systems. It's time for Nintendo to catch up.

    There are also rumors that the Tegra chip in the Switch will use Maxwell architecture. On paper that would make it weaker than the original PS4, but since it's a customized chip, hopefully that won't be the case. You can read more about that here.

    I will be very disappointed if it is still weaker than the start of this generation.

    They didn't confirm much. The storage is a pitiful 32GB, and it seems like you can only expand it with micro SD cards, which are far more expensive than other forms of storage. I'm hoping they'll add USB storage via the dock. It has a USB3.0 port, which I don't think they'd include if you couldn't play from USB.

    One nice thing is that it's chargeable via USB type-C. That will make it much more versatile when compared to other handhelds.
