BTW, something my kids like: far more is in dutch than was one the WiiU (which was already an improvement on the Wii by far... (and the 3ds is catching up, even translating some older titles like tomodashi after a while)

I have played about a zillion hours of Zelda and have barely got anywhere. This game is immense (and also I'm shit).

I don't think they've announced any details for it at all yet so I don't know.

It seems that the Switch is selling rather well in Japan! This is from Nintendolife.com

Quote:
The PlayStation 4 may be the most popular games console of this generation with over 60 million systems sold since launch, but in Japan the Switch is currently outperforming it by some margin.

According to 2ch (via Kotaku), the Switch has sold almost three times as many systems as the PS4 in the first 26 weeks of sale.

665,760 PS4 units were sold in the first 26 weeks on sale in Japan - nothing to be sniffed at. However, Switch has now shifted 1,527,962 units in the same time frame; it took the PS4 Sony 69 weeks to reach 1,523,471 units. All of these figures are taken from the highly respected Japanese retail tracker MediaCreate.

Of course, Japan is not the world, and the while the Switch continues to sell briskly elsewhere, the PS4 remains dominant. Still, given that Nintendo's console isn't even a year old yet, such data bodes well for the future of the platform

There was tons of Switch stuff in Akhibara. No actual consoles, obv, but a huge amount of everything else.

My next console purchase was going to be a Wii U when I found one at the right price on eBay, but I've been wavering a little on that and might just skip it and go for the Switch. Both systems only have a few games I want though, which doesn't help with the decision.

My next console will be the Switch, the XBox/PS lines just seem totally redundant to me these days, no interest at all.

I wouldn't buy a Wii-U at this stage though, unless you can get one really cheap, there are a handful of truly fantastic games for it but Mario Kart 8 and Zelda are on the Switch as well.

As it stands, here are my reasons for three possible consoles -

Wii U - Backwards compatibility so I can ditch the Wii. Smash Bros. Xenosaga
Switch - Zelda (although could get that for Wii U) and it generally seems like an innovative console compared to the PS4/Xbox One. Speaking of which...
Xbox One - Rare Replay and Xbox 360 backwards compatibility

So at the moment, I don't have a huge number of reasons for any of them, which is why I'm holding out for a cheapish one of any/all of the above on eBay.

Oddly, I can't think of a reason to buy a PS4. It was going to be VR, but that's too much of an expense right now.

Quick questions:

Are all WiiU's backwards compatible with Wii discs?

Am I right in saying that certain WiiU's can play GameCube games?

Am I right in saying some Wiis can play GameCube games?

I was wondering about shoving a GameCube disc in both my wii and WiiU but I didn't want the tiny disc to get stuck.

As I understand it, no Wii Us can play Gamecube games. I see there's a Nintendont thing to work around it, but it's far from official.

How's that work then? Sounds like you need to rip it to a big CD rather than just bunging a tiny disc in?

Sounds like a lot of work. I'll just get the GameCube out to play some F-Zero then.

Yep, GameCube and Wii U would be the best combination now. Ditch the Wii.

Seriously though, the PS4 has much better games than the Xbone and isn't that supposed to be what it's all about? Fuck backwards compatibility; if you want to play X360 games then just keep your 360.

I'd keep the Wii providing it will play Gamecube games as the Wii Component cable is much cheaper and much easier to come by than the Gamecube version. The games will look better on a Wii with this cable and they'll play exactly the same.

That's what I do anyway.

There aren't too many on either format I know for sure that I'd want to get. Previously it was Rocket League, but I just play that on PC now. In time I'll probably end up with them both anyway, it's just a case of which order.

I would keep the 360, but it's on the way out. I was going to replace it with a slim, but as the Xbox Ones slowly come down in price, I'll just get one of those instead.

Nintendo's online multiplayer is not great. I wouldn't be particularly confident it would be a compelling game on the Switch. Although I love the idea.

Not functionality wise, but the connection is often rock solid

Nintendon't works great for playing Gamecube games on a Wii U. It's not tricky to set up, and yeah you can just play isos from an SD card.
