The Switch is the fastest selling console in the U.S. and Nintendo is the 4th biggest company in Japan, so no.

Yeah, labo looks awesome but not really my thing and that's fine. I remember loving the GB Camera and Printer another WTF thing from Nintendo but I loved it. They had the e-reader which had potential but failed and whatnot, I like that they try new things.

They specifically left it out of the mini-direct we got last week so "real gamers" would know this isn't being marketed for them and it was the smart decision and even then you still have people complaining.

You know this is actually a brilliant and educational idea for a product, get kids(and maybe some adults) an interest in science,engineering, and art by making them build various of things and have it fully integrate those educational elements with Nintendo software and games. Not only can you make certain objects but you can use them as tools for Nintendo games. It kinda sucks that it costs 70 dollars to have however.

You know on second thought maybe I might get the robot game

With all due respect, the same could be asked of one who pops into threads dedicated to things they don't like, only to talk sh*t. Just thought I'd get that out there.

Because it's not for you. It's for kids, those who haven't become jaded cynics yet. It's a wonderfully innovative little idea that will secure its target demo.

Sadly, the same could be said about Nintendo in general.

It's not something I'm gonna get, but it is a cool little idea and I can see the potential. I wanna see more of what they come up with.

I'm honestly interested. They said it's aimed for children and kids at heart. It's not an amazing idea but looks pretty neat.

Uh
Can we really call ports "Switch exclusives"?

EDIT: Also hell no on that list. SNK Heroines is on PS4 as well. It was announced like 20 minutes after the Switch version.

Goddammit Gamespot you used to be cool.
