they aren't going to have two competing handheld lines going at the same time. 3DS sales will decline and Nintendo will stop making games for it and then there's just going to be the Switch

They don't have two competing handhelds though. They have one handheld and one console with a battery backup.

the great thing about the Switch is that it's either a handheld or a console depending on what point I'm trying to make.



I really wish more indie devs had set dates for their games; my 128 card arrived and I can't wait to put it to use.

Nintendo considers the Switch a combination handheld/console. It is the replacement dor the Wii U and 3DS. They are not going to split development between consoles and handhelds anymore because the Switch is both.

They've literally been talking about combining them since before Iwata died.

Canada is extremely large, one store having a bunch (for an undetermined amount of time!) means nothing.

85% of Canadians live within 70 miles of the American border, and thus have a population density equivalent to the Northeastern United States.

They're just too expensive here, because we haven't forgotten how our currencies used to be at parity only four years ago. Nobody up here except tools and fanboys feels they're worth $399 MSRP, plus tax.

Is it just me or is Mighty Gunvolt Burst more responsive in handheld than docked with the pro controller?

HDTVs usually have 1-4 frames of input lag between what you do in the controller, and what's shown on screen. This is most noticeable in shooters, fighters, and precision platformers.
The screen on the Switch is probably as fast as a monitor (9-17ms, or 0.5-1 frame).

Fascinating! Is there any way to play on a big screen in a nice chair without lag?

There will always be a minimum of one frame with LCD; it's not really noticeable until you hit three or more with online games though. Only CRT is truly lag free.
What you can do is check if your TV is on the https://www.displaylag.com list, and try to optimize whatever game/PC settings are on your TV to reduce it. Rockband's manual lag test is a pretty good test to see how bad it is.
Personally, I just use a 32" monitor if I want to play online games.

the complete impossibility of easily playing with friends in a pubic match and the lack of splitscreen make me baffled that Splatoon 2 is getting unanimous positive reviews. If a Call of Duty came out with this online featureset it would get loving savaged




As one of the two biggest cheerleaders in the CoD thread, I can state categorically that they have worse netcode than Splatoon. Activision's last two games only use ten tic servers, meaning they refresh at only a sixth of the rate of what happens on screen. They're complete unreliable garbage, and while the player base has dropped by half year on year, they're still the biggest console shooters for the foreseeable future.

To say nothing of lobby issues, joining issues, matchmaking issues, people dropping issues, parties with dlc/non dlc issues, all of which have existed since CoD 4.
