I know this sounds silly but we're definitely gonna get more Zelda BotW news tomorrow as well, right? Hopefully we can get a downloadable demo of it (E3 build?) after demonstration on the Switch.

Also hoping to see 2P VC games where one person has a Joy-Con, and other applications when the controllers are removed.

To be fair, Other M is his only blunder, and he had lesser role there than the previous games because he shared the load with other guys over at KT.

you are comparing it to the phone market though, on a phone 32gb to 64gb is a hell of a lot more photos and more music but with the switch it'll be what 2 games maybe even just 1, a pretty pointless increase, also phone manufacturers get away with gouging like that because most people don't actually pay for their phones anyway, they don't see the extra 100 they just pay a few quid extra each month on their contract, if Nintendo tried following phone manufacturers storage pricing they would just look ridiculous comared to sony/ms

Yeah, bundles are very clear. Mario Kart 8 is on the front of the box, must be included.

Multiple SKUs there's, oh well this one comes with composite cables, while this one includes an HDMI, this has AC 5ghz wifi while this only has n. Etc.

Most customers don't care about/understand the techno jargon. Just makes things more complicated. Wii was a way easier sell compared to the 360/PS3 back in those days simply because it was one SKU.

The curios thing is that DK was the most safe and likely guess. Sequel to a successful game liked by both casual and core gamers alike. Funny how that works. People back then were more forgiving because a Metroid was being made alongside it.

Nintendo isn't in a position to sell consoles with a massive profit margin over $100. Also, that mark-up only really is seen in flagship phones; on cheaper devices it's $50 or even less at times. The bump in cost to Nintendo though? Less than $10.

New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii)
New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U)

I'm not the biggest fan of the series but it would be nice to have all of the mainline Mario games on one console.

I compared it to both the phone and tablet market, which both feature devices using the same kind of memory. I'm extremely open to correction if I'm wrong, but I just honestly couldn't find devices that offered a 32Gb to 64Gb bump in internal flash storage for less than $50 to $100. Any specific examples that counter that would be greatly appreciated! Until then I'll remain skeptical.

For Malo specifically: I never claimed that I think Nintendo would price a console with that high of a markup. I've stated that I think the market trends would deter them from offering that next step up at all.

Well it's their biggest strength, making stylish action.

Tho I somewhat understand the idea of FROM doing a Metroid game since they've made a lot of other things besides the Souls series and many of their games are in different genres as well.

No, they'll make you buy them separately on the Virtual Console. You'll get them, but for a price. And drip-fed over months/years.

Am I the only one who got the Basic set? 8gb is nothing sure... but so is 32gb. I picked up Nintendo Land about a year later for $5, the Premium subscription was worthless thanks to eShop prices, and the rest of it is plastic junk (and I already had a sensor bar). The only regret i have is the cheap white that yellowed on the stick/dpad/buttons, in true Nintendo fashion!

Isn't that what 3D Metroid needs though, mechanically speaking? If they could build a traditional Metroid world around the combat & movement mechanics Platinum is known for, it could be something really special.

Hm... That's definitely interesting! I'm ashamed of myself for forgetting that she published this, though it really isn't clear what she means in regards to the second SKU. She mentions a single source that knows the pack-in game, but that she wasn't willing to quote them. She also stated this in a Reddit AMA:

I'm aware neither Tom Phillips or Emily Rogers agree with me that Splatoon is being bundled with Switch in any way, but I have heard it from enough independant places I am still holding tight on that prediuction.

So it's not really clear I guess, but neither Eurogamer or Emily Rogers are backing her bundle claims. I guess there's some wiggle room here!

Splatoon bundled would be a great perk, I'm not personally interested in buying it again despite loving the game.

It would, however, be really smart to bundle it to make sure everyone who buys the Switch can experience the franchise and build the fanbase for longevity. Splatoon and Overwatch are the most fun I've had with multiplayer shooters since 007 and Halo 2.

I don't really want that in Metroid at all. I like Metroid for its atmosphere and exploration. Going combat heavy like Other M takes away from this IMO and despite me being a huge Platinum fan myself, I haven't really had an instance where I've thought they would be good for Metroid.

I'm not saying they couldn't do it, but I'm not looking for a stylish action game with Metroid either.
