Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console and mobile game platform. It's powered by NVIDIA's customized Tegra chip. Nintendo has revealed little about the upcoming hardware apart from the video reveal. But information has been trickling over the past few weeks albeit unofficially. Rumors about its price revealed that a basic Nintendo Switch package may cost around $250 while a bundled game unit will cost around a little over $300.
Recently, a video presenter boasted of getting hands on a Nintendo Switch. He showed a handheld device and joy controller that looks like the Switch. However, he did not turn it on to play any game with it. This led to suspicion that he is merely waving a 3D copy of the real thing. The controversial video was eventually taken down but copies are still available online. Nintendo promised to disclose more Switch information but only on Jan. 2017. The Nintendo Switch will start coming out on March 2017.
