Nintendo Switch announced

Nintendo recently revealed its new home gaming system formerly titled the Nintendo NX and now known as the Nintendo Switch, with the system’s main feature being able to play the same games with whomever and wherever at any time as well as single and multiplayer functionality.

It’s a hybrid of a home console and a handheld gaming device, while gaming at home the Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch dock that connects the system to the tv so you could play in your own living room with family and friends and so by lifting the dock and plugging it into the controller, the Nintendo Switch instantly becomes a handheld device so you can take it with yourself anywhere and game on the go.

The game being played on your big screen will now be ported over to the small screen allowing it to transition seamlessly to a handheld device, something no console maker has managed to do successfully in the past.

More about the Nintendo Switch is slated to be revealed earlier next year and so far the hardware has been reported to be a bit weaker than rivals Sony and Microsoft’s respective consoles even though the Nintendo’s new system is powered by NVIDIA technology as well as having questions about the Nintendo Switch’s battery life which could be a concern.

The Nintendo Switch’s portable functionality in action

With Nintendo’s recent decision to halt production on Nintendo’s previous console the Wii-u, this is a crucial time for Nintendo and it needs a big win on its hands as the Wii-u was a flop with the final Nintendo manufactured Wii-u rolling out the factory this coming Friday, an end to a troubled console ceasing production after four years.

More questions are on gamer’s minds such as what titles will the new handheld device launch with? As the only confirmed Nintendo Switch game is the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and we also know that multiple third party developers and publishers like Konami, Ubisoft and Bethesda are backing the new hybrid gaming system with versions of Skyrim and NBA 2k17 showing up in the Nintendo Switch’s presentation trailer.

And is the new Nintendo system backwards compatible with past Nintendo consoles? Will the device’s screen be touchscreen?we know at least according to an insider that the Nintendo Switch has 4GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage, All will hopefully be answered early next year as more info is set to be revealed and more features discussed and also as we get closer to its March 2017 release date.

3. PlayStation VR unveils its First Party lineup



Whether or not the fact that the PlayStation 4 Neo is simply being introduced as a gateway for the PlayStation VR is still under debate but there is no denying that this could be a very big year for Sony’s foray into the realm of virtual reality and the gaming community needs to know the first titles they shall be playing for the PlayStation VR this fall.

2. New Installments and release dates revealed for existing franchises




Bloodborne could be getting a sequel, the highest rated PlayStation 4 exclusive thus far, including updated looks at Horizen zero dawn and the Last Guardian and what about Sucker punch’s rumored Spiderman game? Or could it be a new installment in the infamous franchise? Should most likely appear in some form as well as God of war 4 and another installment in the Kill Zone franchise. As for Microsoft who knows what they have up their sleeve? A fresh look at Gears of War 4 perhaps? And other as yet to be revealed new IP’s. Just don’t expect anything on a new Grand theft auto, it’s a ways off perhaps but we still have hope for Red Dead Redemption 2. That combined with the usual fare from existing franchises such as Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2, Resident Evil 7 and Titanfall 2 and perhaps a first look at Mass Effect Andromeda or the Last of us 2 should make for an interesting e3.


1. New Xbox code-named Scorpio and the PS4 Neo plus existing hardware price drops and the Nintendo NXnintendo-logoBoth Sony and Microsoft are set to unveil their mid-cycle console upgrades despite only being here say for now it’s all but confirmed they’d show up at e3 since in Sony’s case they need to introduce a new more powerful device than the already pretty powerful PlayStation 4 in order to fully take advantage of its forthcoming PlayStation vr headset also set to have a presence at this year’s e3. As for the new Xbox named Scorpio, it all fits into Microsofts new strategy of integrating both windows 10 and Xbox platforms into their core business, so all we know right now is that they will make an appearance in some form or another or both consoles could merely be slim versions of their respective consoles, guess not much time left before we find out and oh, both the baseline Xbox one and PlayStation 4 consoles could be getting a price drop in the future. Plus since Nintendo has booked a lot of floor space for its E3 presence, it wouldn’t be amiss to get a first look at the new Nintendo NX console.

E3 takes place on June 14th to the 16th of 2016.
