The Nintendo Switch It was presented at the end of last week and, like any product of the Japanese firm, it only has two options: "win or die", which Cersei Lannister would say. In the hours immediately after its presentation this hybrid between tablet and console has managed to plague the network of innumerable articles that augur either a monumental hit or a resounding sales success. Without going into prospects, we will analyze what the Switch has as a tablet.

There is no doubt that although it takes time without hitting a game device or system, Nintendo It is one of the most charismatic technology firms of the last 25 years. His career has been irregular and between triumphs and failures he has left for posterity not only games, but authentic icons of contemporary global culture, as (and it would not be necessary to mention them) Super Mario, Pokemon or Zelda. The Nintendo Switch is his latest creation. In it he tries to combine some of the traditional consoles with the overwhelming universe of tactile.

Nintendo Switch has already been introduced: Japanese revolution or immobility?

Regardless of its virtues and defects, we would gladly sign what it points to our partner José Luis Sanz in Topes de Gama: The key to your success will surely reside in your ability to become attractive to studies such as EA, Bethesda, Ubisoft, RockStar, etc. This requires users and a strong initial impact is very important. We will see how the pre-purchases are going and if the titles announced so far keep the bellows before the big developers get involved.

From a technical point of view

If we attend only to the technical question, personally I would choose to talk about a Tablet, although with more peculiarities than usual. Its screen has a diagonal of 6.2 inches and although no data has been given about the processor, everything indicates that it is an evolution of the Nvidia Tegra X1, that is, a processor designed for tablets but with more turns, since the body of the Nintendo Switch (thicker) allows it, being able to better manage heat generated with its operation.

On the other hand, the resolution of your screen is low if we compare it with the iPad Pro, the Galaxy Tab S2 or even the new Huawei MediaPad M3. You have to go back to 2012 to find high-end tablets with 720p. On the one hand it is logical that it has been chosen to reduce the number and density of pixels to increase autonomy. On the other hand, since the processor will be subject to a high demand, it will not reach the battery data of a conventional Android tablet.

From the practical point of view

If we attend to the uses that we are going to give to the Nintendo Switch, the device is designed to run games, halfway between the console and the conventional tablet. That is, this new device will not reach the power of a PS4 or an Xbox One, however, we do not know if the developers of mobile games to take the new Nintendo platform as yours and to program for it. For now, we must rely on the signature hook to attract studies to an intermediate "unexplored" format.
