Announcement trailer dropped:

150 or so challenges, multi-player, online leaderboards and other stuff mentioned in the trailer.

even more rumors that are mostly backing up previous rumors

1. The Bluetooth chip of Switch 2 still supports existing Joy-Con and Pro controllers, and still features HD vibration (ALPS dual-axis linear motor).
2. Switch 2 has backwards compatibility with Switch 1 cartridges, but Switch 2 cartridges will be different and won't fit on a Switch 1.
3. The new joycons are larger and are magnetically attached to the console with an electromagnet. The SL and SR buttons are metallic now, and there's a new button on the back of each joycon just below the SL & SR buttons, and a new button below the home button on the front of the right joycon
4. The dock still has an USB-C port and will also support 4K image output.
5. The new kickstand also has a damping bracket on the back for improved angle adjustment.
6. The screen is bigger, up to 8 inches and the resolution is upgraded to 1080p.

And more news.... Regarding chips and manufacturing

Basically, Samsung manufacturing the chips on a 7nm process, providing high speed high capacity memory chips and (OLED?) displays.
Tegra T239 is supposedly gonna be manufactured by Samsung on that 7nm production line.

New rumors. New Switch 2 Details leaked

Even though there hasn't been an official announcement from Nintendo themselves, we've been hearing rumors and leaks for a long time about Switch 2, the upcoming successor to the Nintendo Switch. Speculation grew at the end of last year, when Gamescom attendees claimed to have seen the new Nintendo console behind closed doors.

Today at Vandal we can share some exclusive details about the upcoming hardware from the Japanese company after hearing non-official information from manufactures that have had a first contact with Switch 2. Our colleague Rubén Mercado has been the one that has had access to these exclusive details during an accessory manufacturer fair, the same way it happened during the pre-launch period of Nintendo Switch OLED.
Some manufacturers have been able to "touch" the new Nintendo console, without the possibility of actually seeing it to avoid leaks. There are no concrete dates for its release, but they all agree that it won't release this year, even though the console is ready. This is just a strategic decision to have a better lineup, and they expect this Christmas period to be the last one for Switch, and Switch 2 to release Early 2025.

The information we've managed to get says the console is a bit bigger than the current Switch models, but still smaller than a Steam Deck. Another change is on the joy-con side, which will trade their current attachment system using rails for a magnetic system.
As of right now we don't have information on the specs of the console itself, but what we can confirm is that the current Pro Controller will be forwards compatible with Switch 2. However, it's possible that the current joycons won't be, whether for the change on how they attach to the console or if they have new functionalities.

- Accessory manufacturers have been able to touch the console but not see it.
- Every manufacturer agrees the console won't release this year and will release Early 2025.
- A bit bigger than the current Switch models but nowhere close to the Steam Deck's size.
- Joy-cons will change their attachment system from rails to a magnetic system, and the current ones won't be forwards compatible.
- The current Pro Controller will work on Switch 2.

Edit: (added translations)

But my take on this is that new joycons won't have the mechanical click anymore, as those probably have a high fail rate after repeated use. Instead you will likely slide the joycons on the track still, but it's held magnetically so it doesn't slide around. Also glad that my Pro will hopefully still be good, as I don't want to buy another to replace it, when I can buy a 2nd so I now have 2 that work instead :)

I'm also ok with the Switch taking on a larger/thicker form factor, because I honestly don't know who is trying to carry it in their pocket. Everyone got a bag/sling, backpack, or a carrying case of some sort to travel with, if they even happen to travel with it. Let's go with tech improvements over smallest possible form factor. push the envelope on the affordable portable form.

Rumor has it that Nintendo will be stock piling units, as they had originally planned for launching end of this year, but are now pushing for end of Q1 or sometime Q2 next year for launch instead, which will help them pad out the launch library a little more as well.

Ehhh.... They called it a pricing error and took it all back anyway.

Welcome to the POOHNIVERSE!!!

Blood and Honey and all the other extremely low budget children's tales turned Horror in the last few years are gonna Cross Over into a not as low budget(?) travesty?

I'm not sure if I should be excited at just the idea of them attempting this, or disgusted because I know it gonna be absolute TRASH thrown in the dumpster and then set on fire.

I haven't seen the majority of the movies that they are mashing together (well, really, I haven't seen any of them except for B&H and didn't know most of the rest even existed), but I'm sure I'll at least attempt to check this out if they put a real effort into it at least looking good. B Horror is a guilty pleasure of mine after all.

I mean...
Where "Avengers: Infinity War" had Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Thanos, "Poohniverse" — from prolific horror collaborators Jagged Edge Productions and ITN Studios — will team Winnie the Pooh with murderous versions of figures including Bambi, Tinkerbell, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Tigger, Piglet, The Mad Hatter and Sleeping Beauty for an IP-bludgeoning frenzy due for release in 2025. Indeed, on the poster, which Variety is also able to exclusively reveal, Pooh is seen swinging a bear trap on a chain while riding a vicious, bloodthirsty Bambi. Because why not?

I'm sure some of you have actual reason to the Why Not? question, but honestly, why not?

edit: on second thought...
Many of the characters set to appear in "Poohniverse" will first feature in standalone films coming this year and falling under Jagged Edge's version of the MCU, the Twisted Childhood Universe. Among them are "Bambi: The Reckoning," "Peter Pan's Neverland Nightmare" and "Pinocchio Unstrung," plus last year's "Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey" and its sequel "Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2," which is being released theatrically in the U.S. on March 26. The upcoming films will include various easter eggs linking them toward the upcoming horrifying crossover.

Tons of upcoming terrible low budget B horror incoming, but if they can make it entertaining, then I'm all for it.

TCU/Poohniverse Let's Gooooo!!

Sounds like the PSVR2 is supposed to get a PC hookup.
I've never used used it, but does that mean it's gonna be compatible with all/most the VR games available on PC at some point?

Sounds promising, but my guess is the game your playing needs to already be PSVR2 compatible, but now you can play the PC version? Do you have a link for where you read this?

they are opening The Vault on April 11th

I don't know how many of you remember the original game for this, but the show looks pretty good based on what I remember from that game. Never got into the more recent sequels, but I'm sure I'll be all into this, as all the episodes drop 4/11

I heard it's a nice leap forward, but it's also a lot more expensive.

I'm waiting till the price gets cut in half before even thinking of jumping in.

This says that Switch 2 will have physical and digital backwards compatibility
and that Devs can "enhance" Switch 1 games on the Switch 2

I'm assuming that will be higher frame rates, cleaner textures, higher rez output?

Rumor has it that Switch 2 reveal could be next month.

I haven't watched the video, but I guess that's what's rumbling out of the rumor mill right now

Dave Patella and Jordan Peele bring us
Monkey Man

This looks pretty damn cool, so I'm leaving it here so I don't forget about it.

April is a ways away.

I saw an article over the weekend about some company releasing some tech, that stated they were gonna make the drop along side the release of the Switch 2 in September of 2024.

I was on my phone, and away from home, so I kinda lost the page it was on as I was browsing through stuff, but I'll see if I can find it again and share it here.

but until I find it.... here is an updated article of all you we know so far from Polygon

edit: It was a press release by Altec Lansing (this 1 of several sources citiing the bolded quote below),Switch%202%20in%20September%202024.%22

Original Press release: (must've been altered as it doesn't mention the bolded quote below)

Altec Lansing, the leading global audio electronics company, today announces its role as the first licensee of Ai Shark’s cutting-edge gaming software. Formerly known as GameShark, Ai Shark is set to redefine the gaming landscape with its revolutionary AI-enhanced technology. The innovative gaming software is set to mark a significant leap forward in the gaming experience, bringing enhanced gameplay for beginner-level users. The official launch is planned to coincide with the Nintendo Switch 2 in September 2024.

I would assume the bearer of the Gauntlet was the one person immune to affects of the action made with the Gauntlet.
So let's add that to the equation to keep it more interesting.

I saw an interesting proposal for a What If!?... S3 episode, or even a miniseries/multi episode arc.
Thought it would be interesting to discuss.

What if.... The other half blipped

As in Tony Stark, Hulk, Thor, Cap, and Captain Marvel etc etc all blipped, and Black Panther, Bucky, Spider, Wanda and Strange all stuck around....

Does it take them 5 years to figure it all out? Do they win at all? Do they just retest to an alternate dimension in the multiverse?

How would you all imagine that playing out?

Iron Heart wraps filming.

Hopefully this is the one to bring the excitement back to the MCU

Apparently don't listen to me..... I guess Echo resonated better with a wider audience beyond me
The show also had a halo effect for Marvel: Daredevil seasons one and two, Hawkeye, and Punisher season one received major audience bumps, according to insiders.

Marvel is interested in doing more with the character and is already developing new ideas as it seeks to build out its street-level heroes.

I didn't hate it, I just felt it didn't do much to invigorate a stagnant MCU TV.
Her fight scene with DD was probably the best fight, and maybe her spreading in other stuff will expand her appeal. For now I'm still not really seeing it.

Echo .... 5/10

Deaf amputee indigenous child taken under Kingpin's wing (for some reason), tries to connect the end of Hawkeye while explaining the past and ongoing relationship between Echo and Kingpin. Also plenty exploration of Echo's Indigenous roots, her connection to her existing family and ancestors, and how that comes to strengthen her today.

Majority of the fight scenes are mid, overall story is weak, and I'm just not really seeing the appeal or point of this particular show, as it didn't even clearly establish what Echo is capable of. All it did in the end, is shuffle Kingpins position on the board, for what I assume will be his role in Daredevil.
