When the trailer dropped last week, the Nintendo Switch wasn’t even officially on sale.
While the game was announced as a launch title at E3 in July, Nintendo’s booth at that event was packed full of people waiting to get their hands on it.
But then the trailer went up on YouTube, and the Switch was announced with an announcement that it was coming to retail in a couple of weeks.
And now, the Switch is on sale and, at a time when the console is still seeing some of the lowest prices for its first three months, Nintendo has managed to put it on sale for just $49.99.
That’s a steep price, but it’s worth considering for those of you who may be hesitant to shell out the $349.99 asking price for the Switch.
After all, the console was already on sale on February 23, when the company released the Switch Mini for $179.99, the first of its kind console.
And while the price was higher than the price of a lot of other consoles that we’ve seen at E4 in recent years, Nintendo still managed to squeeze it in at a price that’s just a bit too good to pass up.
So how does this compare to other consoles at the show?
Let’s take a look.
The Nintendo Switch is the first portable console to come with a full 1080p display, which is standard on the Switch and most other portable systems.
As such, the system can display games on the big screen, but also on a small, more compact display.
It can also be used as a portable projector or even an entertainment center.
And for those who are willing to shell them out, Nintendo is offering a bunch of different ways to stream games to the Switch, including a gamepad that can act as a controller, or a pair of Bluetooth speakers to stream music or video to the console.
Nintendo also made a few tweaks to the way the Switch handles the power supply, with a small button to switch between the console’s two main power sources.
Nintendo says the Switch will run on just two AA batteries.
We’re also seeing a number of different controllers for the console, including two Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, a GamePad-style controller that has a touchpad, a left and right analog stick, and a right analog trigger, along with two Switch controllers.
The Joy-Cons are great for getting into the game without being too heavy.
We’ve been using a pair for a few hours and it’s easy to use and has a lot to offer.
The GamePad controller can be used for more precise control, but is still not as comfortable as the Joy-CON controllers, so it’s definitely a great addition to the portable system.
We’ll have a review of the Nintendo Joy-Controllers, as well as the Switch controllers and the new Switch Mini at E2 in a bit.
For now, check out the video above for a look at how the console works and what’s included.
As for the hardware itself, the only thing it doesn’t have is a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
This is especially interesting, because there are other portable console systems that are able to plug in their own headphones to make use of the 3.0mm headphone output, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which can be plugged in to the same output as the Nintendo console.
The Nintendo Switch will have a standard 2.5-inch USB Type-C headphone jack that will accept a MicroUSB cable for charging, but we’ll be curious to see if Nintendo decides to include a headphone jack on the console as well.
The Switch’s dock is similar to what we saw on the Nintendo 3DS, which has a USB-C Type-A port.
The Switch’s Dock is a slightly bigger, slimmer version of the dock we saw earlier this year, and is designed to accommodate the 3D display, as the system’s 3.75-inch display is larger than the Nintendo’s 3D Display.
The dock is not a docking station, and will only work with games that require a 3.25-inch or larger display.
However, we’re expecting a lot more games to require larger displays in the future.
We can see how this could be useful, since a 3D-capable system would likely require the Switch to support the 3DS’ “3D mode” feature, which allows the display to change to a 2D view.
It’s a feature that’s been absent from the Nintendo 64 since the original Nintendo Switch launched in March, but with the Switch we may finally see it on the platform.
It will be interesting to see how much more games will support 3D mode once it arrives, but the Switch could make a lot for portable console fans who want a portable system with the ability to play a full-size game on a 3DS.
Finally, we’ve also seen some other changes to the system in the
