    Yea, and in it's form factor I doubt it's possible. Maybe 2 more GPU revisions, so 2 years.

    We don't need a Switch Mini, the Joy-Cons are already for kid's hands. We need a Switch XL, with bigger Joycons for adults.

    No they will have a Switch with 3! screens, eye tracking and two dockingstations that will render the screens and eye tracking useless.

    and inside will be some super high end prcessor that was used in the iphone 3 and the controller will be even smaller and designes so that even the last people will have to break their fingers to use it.

    TBH I am tired of too many consoles, Nintendo makes good consoles, but I would like it better if they just provided some digital market a la Steam or a GaaS like EA Access or Xbox Game Pass, or whatever, so you could just buy their games on your PC or console of choice. Same goes for Sony and Microsoft. It is a pity the Steam Machines were expensive pieces of shit, but I would really prefer a GaaS model where they get their revenue from subscriptions and the actual consoles are the same for all of the games, maybe you can get the high-end console, or the mid-level console, or the handheld console, but they all can play (at least some part of the spectrum) of the GaaS provided by the company you subscribe to........... oh wait, what an unpopular opinion! /s

    I would love consoles to get a decade of time instead of 5 years. That's more games, less developer hell, and better for everyone.

    A dedicated portable that is more portable than my Switch. A true successor to the DS line. I don't care for the "hybrid" nature and we don't get as many games as we did in previous generations when we had both so there is no advantage for me.

    It will be a revised Switch - better battery consumption,higher resolution, better GPU. I don't see them returning to the standard home console after this.

    Honestly? I could see them making a modern budget-oriented headset (like the Oculus Go) with a special preorder version that has coloration that nods to the VB

    It's unlikely, but it would be cool

    Nintendo already released their next gen console in Japan. A normal Switch which doesn't come with a charger and dock.
    Now you can't play anymore games after 3 hours of play.

    Personally I hope they keep shit like this up. I'm a PC gamer and I don't even want Nintendo to be another company who pretends to be able to keep up with that. Give me more unique good shit and I'll buy it.

    Nintendo has been toying around with touchscreens for a while now, but never did anything really big with it...yet.

    Their next home console will have it that each controller is a touchscreen. But unlike the wii u, the touch screen will be the primary source of input. This will allow each game to have its own button configuration and layout. They will be taking advantage of sony's patent from the early 2000's that makes it so you can 'physically' feel the buttons on the screen. It will support 4k, but as always, the gpu is not going to be powerhouse.

    There is still about another 4 years before nintendos next release cycle, but they are certainly already working on it.

    Nintendo has a long history of hardware revisions. I'm willing to bet that their top priority right now is a Switch revision that runs similarly to current models (with slightly improved specs to convince people to buy), but does so with completely different (or patched/modified) hardware under the hood so it's not vulnerable to the same Tegra exploits as current models.
