    Sucks to have big hands..Switch looks like the gameboy micro

    • Tlink7

      The Switch is big enough if you ask me

        How to misread and immediately react to a Switch-related comment, Vol. 1.

        • Tlink7

          I only check articles once, so that was just a coincidence~

          • Apfel

            haha, good one!
            you’re so precocious that it’s actually cute. Add a dramatically incoherent response and it’s gold!

          • Tlink7

            The irony, oh the irony, mr German Apple :3

          • Apfel

            Please, explain the irony.

          • Tlink7

            Because your replies are ”dramatically incoherent” whereas mine was just ”I think the Switch size is fine”. You decided to go crazy attack mode, I shared my opinion in a neutral way. This is a forum after all; if you don’t want to hear dissenting opinions, go say your thoughts out loud in an auditorium instead

            Or you’re a troll, but I don’t really care either way ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Apfel

            It took you 3 messages to be coherent. Not that you’re right, but at least coherent.

          • Tlink7

            I don’t see how my first message was incoherent, it was merely short. My second reply was me taking the piss. This is a Nintendo fan forum, I’m not going to act super serious and write properlly 24/7. I suggest you do the same

    • Dylan W

      As a proud Switch owner, I can assure you that it is much bigger than a Game Boy Micro.

    Asking as person who is a complete Skyrim noob, does this look like the 360/PS3 version, the Remastered Edition or something in between?

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      something in between because it is off screen, i want to see some full version footage in dock mode to tell

      • Roto Prime

        Same here, some dock mode would be nice, I hope I can clean the UI 100% so I can play it on my oled ;___;

      • Busterblade

        Now that you mention it, they’re only showing handheld footage, and hammering on that really hard. I wonder how it holds up in dock, the at least as important mode.

        • Tlink7

          Probably not done with fine-tuning the graphics and don’t want the whole internet to call it a PS3 port or something

          • Busterblade

            *facepalm*

        • Reggie

          Because Skyrim on console has been done to death for years. No one is going to want to buy the same game twice. That’s why they’re “hammering” the portable aspect to make double dipping more appealing.

          I don’t care that you’re biased towards home consoles, this is just part of business strategy.

          • Busterblade

            So that stops me from wondering how it holds up? And means I can’t voice concern? You need to take a chill pill, you’re just looking for an excuse to snap down on people.

          • Reggie

            I’m not. I’m explaining a perfectly reasonable reason why they would want to advertise it in this way. In the end, what Bethesda and Nintendo are doing is business. And for them, they have to make a good case as to why people should buy a six-year old game that has already been released on several other consoles. I’ve had friends tell me “Why are they even bothering?” in response to Skyrim on Switch, because it is that old.

            And like it or not, the tactic working. Playing on the go is a nice feature for an old game that many people have already played. It gives a little more incentive. A little, but every little bit counts.

            I understand wanting to know how it holds up, but if Bethesda and Nintendo showed it being played docked only, then people would just regard it as yet another regular old port. And with how doubtful people are already being, it counts to make as much of a case as possible. And that case is portability.

            Not every disagreement to your preferred method of play is an attack. Grow up please.

          • Busterblade

            It’s the way you type your arguments. “I don’t care that you’re biased towards home consoles, this is just part of business strategy.” could also be “I’m well aware that you’re biased towards home consoles” etc.

            I guess nuance isn’t something that you’re familiar with.

          • Reggie

            Maybe it was aggressively worded.

            But my point stands. It’s just business as usual.

          • Busterblade

            I’m equally well aware of that, but again, the way you word things has me wonder why you’re snapping down, as that’s how it comes across.

            I get that handheld is basically the sole selling point, but there’s nothing wrong with showing a bit of both modes. I mean the Switch is still this, “hybrid” console, unless they’ve announced plans to ditch the home-console part and turn handheld overnight.

          • Reggie

            I agree that they could show it off in both modes. But I also understand, from a business standpoint, why they would want to show off one mode more than the other. But I otherwise agree.

          • Busterblade

            And when you think about it, many of the Switch’s games, especially in regards to ports of old games, hell even games like FIFA which will be multiplat, the handheld portion is what truly sells the games. It makes you wonder why they even bothered to have the dock part and home-console marketing, as it’s very clear what the Switch’s strength is, though I’m sure that’s in part to ask these prices, as people tend to associate 3DS like prices with handhelds.

          • Reggie

            Because it was Nintendo’s way of reaching compromise and finding middle ground.

            Having a console and a handheld side by side just didn’t work for Nintendo anymore, as the Wii U no doubt showed. It’s not something they can afford to do anymore. Rather then risk it again trying to compete against XBO and PS4, a losing battle, they opted to create a hybrid machine. And it paid off remarkably well for them.

            The machine can be played on a TV. Can’t you just be happy with that?

          • Busterblade

            It’s not that simple, as you yourself have pointed this out. The majority is the only thing to matter in the business world, and the Switch is not selling off of it’s hybrid nature, no, it sells because of quality games on the go.

            You can buy strong consoles with many and great games already, but the Vita is barely if at all supported and the 3DS is an old beast, so the hot stuff in the handheld market is Switch, and that’s where it gets it’s hype and sales from, not because it happens to dock.

            The dock, is an afterthought extra to keep people that want to play on their TV satisfied, something easily removed and forgotten when the time comes.

          • Reggie

            Yes, a huge selling point of the Switch is the portability factor and Nintendo knows this. I’m not backtracking on that. But to say that Switch wasn’t a response to their past failures would be false. Nintendo’s merging of their console and handheld departments shows that, they’re making a compromise and streamlining it. Now they don’t have to spread themselves out quite so thinly and can just focus on the one device.

            There’s little point now to try and make do with another home console, not when you have XBO and PS4 to compete against. Maybe that’ll change in time. A lot of people are convinced that Microsoft will bail out of console gaming after the XBO, though that remains to be seen. Maybe then there would be incentive to try again. But then you also have Japan where portable gaming is pretty much the only thing there. So who knows what Nintendo will do after the Switch.

          • Busterblade

            It would make sense for them to go fully handheld, it wouldn’t for them to continue bothering with home-console, that is a given.

            I may cling to my preference as I please, but I am not blind to the truth either.

    • It’s the remastered version………trust me

    My right ear feels neglected
