The Nintendo Switch console is on sale in the US for $59.99.
That’s a steep price, but the company is quick to point out that the console will run on its own set of hardware.
The company also confirmed that the system is designed to be as portable as possible.
“Nintendo Switch will be able to run on any existing PC or console, but it will also be compatible with the new Nintendo Switch handheld,” a company spokesperson said.
“The Switch handheld will have a detachable dock for connecting it to your TV or any other compatible device.”
The Switch will also feature Bluetooth wireless connectivity and the ability to stream media from the internet to the system.
While the Switch is more than likely a console, it will still require an HDMI cable to connect to a TV.
The Switch’s pricing has been hotly debated, with some people claiming that the $600 price tag is a “highball” and others saying it’s a fair price.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye on how the console performs when it finally hits retail shelves in the coming weeks.
