Additional Nintendo Switch Details Dribble Out

What’s Nintendo thinking by being so secretive? While price, tech specs, battery life, and more may be a mystery until next year, we do have some idea of what it will or will not support. It is weird how they showed Skyrim on the system when it hasn’t even been confirmed yet.

Nintendo confirmed to IGN that "the main unit of Nintendo Switch is the unit that has the LCD screen." The dock's main functions are TV output and power/charging, Nintendo said, which suggests the dock won't actually have much in the way of additional hardware to enable higher-fidelity play on an HDTV. The Switch can't play physical 3DS or Wii U games: This Destructoid translation of a Japanese Famitsu story confirms that the Switch will not play physical games from Nintendo's most recent consoles.
