Over the last few months Laura Kate Dale has been leaking lots of awesome new Switch information before anybody else.
This report is a few weeks old, and it's just patents but, if this stuff is true then man I can't wait for this system.
The Switch will forgo disc-based games to a new cartridge system similar to the DS, but I still plan on buying all my games digitally for the system so the inclusion of a microSD card slot is good news. I'll just be able to buy a 256 gigabyte card and go crazy downloading everything. It's not that I'm worried about losing games - I've never lost a DS game - but just the idea of never having to store them or swap them, I can just collect as many games as I want digitally and have them with me all the time is great.
As for the VR headset, it'll be basically just a pair of goggles and you slide the Switch into the front. Just like the Daydream View, which I have and really like. I personally am very excited about this. I belive that even though it won't be as technically impressive as PSVR, Nintendo's game design will be interesting to see in virtual reality as a medium. Imagine jumping into the mushroom kingdom and actually being there.
We'll find out about everything when Nintendo has their Nintendo Direct on January 12th. All these rumours paint a pretty accurate picture of what the Switch will look like from a technology standpoint, but that doesn't mean much until we can see how Nintendo chooses to tell the story of this system in their own words.
