Nintendo Switch to Cost Less than $250: Nikkei

The Switch leaks-confirm-release-date-game-lineup-includes.htm">reveal video also showed off a handful of other titles, including Splatoon, a Mario Kart game, an National Basketball Association game, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, though none has been confirmed as actually coming to the console yet.

What do you know about this rumored hybrid console? Nintendo is supposed to give us more details on the console and the pricing on January 12 and then we will know that if that is the solemn truth or we have been taken for a ride.

Bear in mind that this is Nikkei's estimation, a prediction based on its own knowledge rather than something that can be traced to an anonymous source or leak.

If true, this means that, in Japan, the Switch will be cheaper than the basic 8GB Wii U, which sold for ¥26,250 when it first launched in 2012. They shouldn't forget that Microsoft also plans to reveal the Xbox One Scorpio this year, and with the news surrounding the console, gamers may as well just skip getting the Switch in favor of a more powerful Xbox. The date on the tag is listed as yesterday, January 10th, 2017 so that does work out with Nintendo's event tomorrow. It resembles the Wii U Pro controller with one interesting addition - a record button, the icon for it is what you'd find on a VCR or recording software.

This section has apparently been removed from the official site, however it could mean another big reveal coming during the Nintendo Switch Presentation. We're expecting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be in the mix, but Nintendo hasn't given us any concrete hints thus far of what we'll be playing on release day.

Meanwhile, the new Nintendo console is likely to be receiving a number of brand new games during its launch.

Currently, we have no idea how well Nvidia's Tegra chip will perform, but we could be looking at a decent amount of oomph under the hood. The document that leaked discussed Nintendo Switch release date which is March 17. People are giving the console five stars just because it "looks good".
