    I mean this is good and everything but can they pull it off. Its a big investment to make and at the moment a risk. Will it try and compete with the Switch or go straight for Sony and Microsoft?

    I was expecting Sega to make such an announcement after they said new things were coming.

    unless you're sony, microsoft or nintendo, making a game console in this day and age seems like a no win scenario. unless its going to play PC games?

    even consoles in general are slowly becoming obsolete vs PCs. as much as I prefer gaming on my PS4

    The Switch got a ton of positive press and hype before it was released, but it doesn't sound like they are flying off the shelves. So this will probably flop.

    Hasn't the Switch sold as well as the Wii. I think once a price drop happens it will sell more. I only have 3 games for it so far. I do think its good though. Just needs more games. They releasing a SNES classic and looking at the games list that has, Nintendo just has to do what they used to fucking do 25 years ago.

    I hope Atari does this and it sells well, I actually see Microsoft abandoning the Xbox platform in a few years to focus more on PC. So theres high chance a gap opens for another contender.

    people are still selling Switch's for more than retail price because they've been that hard to find. I still plan on getting one eventually solely for Zelda and I'm sure I'll find a few more games I like
