    The PC i bought 8 years ago was able to run Crysis 1 at > 100 fps with 1080p and very high setting, during gun fire dropped to min 45fps+.

    After 8 years, Nintendo switch is "strong" enough to run Crysis at 60fps :p

    Anyway, as most have said, the power isn't that much of a problem for a Nintendo consoles, we care more about the games with creativity. I am excited when i am thinking i can play Mario 3D, Mario Kart series, Zelda series, Fire Emblem series, etc again.

    I noticed the Wal Mart stores closest to me don't have any Wii U systems for sale. I wonder if Nintendo is in the process of pulling the plug on the Wii U?

    I'm unsure I want a Switch. I have no idea if it will sell well or not. I'll be curious to see how well it does in March.

    300 bucks for a 32GB device that run games at 720p on a gimmicky console... are you guys serious? games are fun no doubt but are you actually thinking what the hell are you going to get for a higher price of a current console and less power than the ones we got 3 years ago? sure is portable but seriously....

    Now come and argue all you want but as much as i love Big N their strategy and pricing is f*cked up. Is going to sell well because is sort of like the next 3DS handheld console but still silly IMO.
