Nintendo has released the Nintendo Switch, the most significant console release since the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Our team went to the midnight launch of the Nintendo Switch and went straight home to video the unboxing of their new console.
Nintendo has staked their reputation and future on the launch and success of the Nintendo Switch, coming off the back of poor Wii U sales due to a confused consumer base. Nintendo’s flagship console is a hybrid tablet/portable device with a docking station to ensure a Full HD experience can be delivered.
Ian and Simon take you through a detailed, but lighthearted, unboxing of the Nintendo Switch, including such highlights as measuring the console with a size 10 shoe, thus cementing a size 10 shoe as an official unit of measurement for your Nintendo Switch. Thus ensuring it meets the required specifications and quality standards laid out by WHIG.
The team also show off their new What Happens In Gaming hoodies, that they wore to the release event where they spoke to numerous new Nintendo Switch owners.
Marvel at the fact that Ian thinks the Nintendo Switch is tiny. But, of course, size doesn’t matter.
Watch in horror as Ian almost drops his new Nintendo Switch!
