    With Sony out of the way for handhelds, getting a switch is a case of when not if. And while Nintendo have said region free, we still have yet to know what exactly that means in this digital storefront world. (as ps4, xb1 and vita all approach region free differently digitally)

    If this is way cheaper than the other services... this might be ok...

    But if is as cheap as it'd need to be (10-20 USD a year), is it even worth it for nintendo at that point?

    I think this is one of those things that sounds really terrible at a glance... but probably is less of a problem than you'd think.

    More battery is better. But I think Breath of Wild being 3 hours is the bare minimum they could hit while being acceptable.

    I've got mixed feelings...

    However, I feel IF nintendo can actually nail the promise of 1 2 Switch, and other devs really go at it... there is a good chance nintendo could pull off a bring to pub for you and your mates at the table version of the wii sports phenomenon.

    Battery life is a shame, but with powerbanks becoming an increasing staple of what everyone packs... maybe now is the time you can truly get away with that... You can bet nyko will be there day 1 with a battery solution though. Most likely a combined grip and back plate for the whole thing.

    I'm really shocked they don't have more though... Like a few said, this is supposed to be the merging of both their handheld and console offence, and what we've seen is poorish for a launch of either...

    However, last time nintendo launched with a zelda it worked... so... lets see how that works out for them...

    @touchofkiel while we've got region free, we don't yet know how region free it is for the increasingly important part, the eshop...

    As in, is this a PS4 situation, where one console has multiple accounts, and each can be a different region for the eshop?

    Is this the EU 3DS situation where on visiting the eshop you can choose your region, and then are locked by your nintendo ID once you confirm it?

    Is this a Vita situation where a simple factory reset lets you chance eshop region?

    Is this a weird and unique situation where since in 3DS games you buy DLC in game, that each game sends you to the region appropriate eshop based on the game card and you buy from the right place, and then one of the other options for the eshop for buying full games themselves?

    So many ways for this to pan out for those who really need that region free a bit more than most people.

    @gigantor21 with lost odyssey now on the digital storefront and backwards compatible, that is the one game that would make me move for an Xbox.

    @kidgorilla I think kh3 at least exists in some way. Not much of one though.

    @jihon83 maybe we are thinking about this wrong. Maybe kh3 was supposed to be a window seat project. But it wasn't enough so they added the ff7 remake to it too.

    Trust square to be amazingly grand even with their window seat jobs.

    @DemiurgicSoul it might be dead for new games, but remember we still see ever quest 2 expansions... So I wouldn't be worried about no more ever quest.

    I don't recall if ever quest 1 still gets expansions but it does have time locked servers.

    I'll certainly be sad to see this generation of handheld gaming end. While not quite as insane as the psp / ds years (which if you look through those libraries it's just silly.) there is so much there! Thankfully (?) I got my 3ds fairly late, and have a lot still to play on it. So I'm not going to be lacking for traditional handheld gaming soon...

    If anything I'm optimistic to see the switch get mainstream coverage and not be ignored like handhelds tend to...
