    Pros: 

    Great first party games, easy to bring with you, and a very comfortable design.

    Cons: 

    The battery life isn't great, and the screen is pretty low resolution.

    The Nintendo Switch has become the most played console in my house. This is partly because of the great games that have come out for it and partly because it was made for you to keep playing. In the evenings, I can just pick it up off the dock and keep playing Splatoon 2 in bed. I actually use the handheld mode fairly often; even around my house. The resolution of its screen isn't great, but none of the games released so far have high end graphics so it's not too much of a problem. The battery life isn't awesome, but you can get about 3 hours of game time out of it. It won't last for long flights, but it'll hold up around the house or bringing it in to the office. I highly recommend this. I would also suggest splurging and getting a pro controller with it. Definitely worth it.

Super interesting to see it's both a home and handheld console. But it's not the first console they've announced this year. Nintendo has some of the best IP's. I'm probably in the minority but I'd love to see a Super Mario RPG sequel.
Matt Braun@mattbraun · Principal, magnate interactive ltd
@rrhoover I was just listening to the Super Mario RPG soundtrack the other day! I'd love to see a sequel, too.
Christian Montoya@cm0nt0y4 · Maker
@rrhoover That's still in my top 10 games of all time. But I've already given up hope in a sequel :(
Ryan Gilbert@ryangilbert · workspaced.com
@rrhoover really looking forward to that Classic Mini 😬
Justin Jackson@mijustin · MegaMaker
@rrhoover I think the real play is here is "make gaming social again." If you look at the teaser video most of the examples are people playing the Switch together, in real meat-space.

@rrhoover @mattbraun @cm0nt0y4 If you're a fan of SMRPG, I highly recommend this mod for it -- one of the coolest things I've ever played (FF characters & Pokemon in a SMRPG game!?) http://www.insanedifficulty.com/...

@rrhoover Have you checked out the Mario & Luigi Series?
David Chang@chang2301 · Founder, Ziltag
@rrhoover They said it has the power of Xbox One....So Xbox One + PS Vita = Nintendo Switch?
Derek E. Silva@dereksilva
@rrhoover Super Mario RPG forever.

This looks amazing, but that battery life better be equally amazing.
