Nintendo finally comments on Nintendo Switch Pro rumors

Published

on

Doug Bowser, president of Nintendo America, has commented on recent rumors that the company is going to release the Nintendo Switch Pro game console this year. In an interview with The Washington Post, he noted that the original Nintendo Switch has been selling well for the fifth year in a row, but the company is, of course, thinking about technological progress.

In fact, the head of Nintendo of America has neither confirmed nor denied the imminent release of the new console. He only confirmed that the company is working in this direction, but so far there is no official information on the release date of the Nintendo Switch Pro.

We are always exploring technology and how technology can improve the gameplay. It is important to understand how and where to apply the technology. Do we want to do this on existing hardware or should we wait for a new platform to appear.

Doug Bowser

He also noted that the company is looking to expand partnerships outside of video games, such as the recent launch of a Japanese theme park with Universal Studios.

We see ourselves as an entertainment company that specializes in unique entertainment. This is based on our integrated hardware and software model, and this model has enabled us for decades to create the deeply immersive characters and worlds we all know and love.

The company calls the novelty the first ultra-thin set-top box with Windows and an OLED screen. The dimensions here are 224 x 89.5 x 26.7 mm with a mass of 395 g. For comparison, the dimensions of the Steam Deck are 298 x 117 x 49 mm with a mass of 669 g, but the Nintendo Switch OLED has dimensions of 175 x 104 x 50.7 mm with a mass of 315 g.

True, there is also a version of Air Pro, the thickness of which is increased to 29.6 mm, and the weight is 450 g.

The novelty is available in many different configurations. The base version, which can be ordered for $500 through a crowdfunding campaign, is equipped with a Ryzen 5 5560U APU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. There are versions with the same APU, but 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB SSD. There is also a modification based on the Ryzen 7 5825U with 32 GB of RAM and an SSD from 512 GB to 2 TB. The top console can be purchased for $1,000.

In any case, the performance of any version will be significantly lower than that of the Steam Deck, as well as consoles based on the Ryzen 6000U.

It is also important that retail prices will differ very little from the prices of the fundraising campaign.

The rest of the parameters include a 5.5-inch OLED screen with Full HD resolution, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, a battery with a capacity of 28 or 38 Wh (second for Air Pro versions), a fingerprint scanner (except for the most basic version).

The Indiegogo campaign has already raised around $255,000, nearly four times the amount the manufacturer is asking for.

The media told why there were so many errors in Cyberpunk 2077 – the game was simply poorly tested

The media told why there were so many errors in

After the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 at the end of 2020, it turned out that the game has a lot of bugs and flaws that have been fixed over time. Now there is information that the project was simply poorly tested before release.

The media told why there were so many errors in Cyberpunk 2077 - the game was simply poorly tested

It is alleged that CD Projekt RED hired the Romanian company Quantic Lab, which previously tested The Witcher 3, to test the game. However, experienced testers had left Quantic Lab by this time, although the company claimed otherwise. This is stated in a video on the YouTube channel Upper Echelon Gamers, which received a 72-page document with test reports, data from the personnel department and so on. This data was allegedly given to the author of the channel by an anonymous employee of Quantic Lab. Although no screenshots or documents are shown in the video.

The video claims the following:

  • Quantic Lab lied about the size of the test team in order to keep the contract.
  • Many team members were newbies who needed to be trained in parallel with testing.
  • The Romanian company required a daily quota of bugs to be met, so any bugs were sent to the developers, not the most important ones. Because of this, really significant errors were often not detected in time.

It is also noted that as a result, CD Projekt RED changed the requirements for testing, now it was necessary to report only important errors, but time was lost.

At the same time, YouTube blogger LegacyKillaHD, who previously reviewed Cyberpunk 2077, asked about the situation of several developers from CD Projekt RED on condition of anonymity. According to them, they knew about the problems in the game, but there was not enough time to fix them.

Microsoft Edge browser updated for streamers and gamers

Microsoft continues to actively promote the Xbox Cloud Gaming service and other gaming features. At the same time, developers add them to the proprietary Edge browser. Back in November last year, it became known about Clarity Boost technology, which improves image clarity when streaming games on Windows 10 and 11. Now, as expected, it will appear in the Edge browser.

In addition, Microsoft advertises the Efficiency Mode in the browser, which should minimize the load on the system and give maximum resources to games.

And on the home page of the updated version of the browser, free casual games are available – Microsoft Jewel, Microsoft Edge Surf, Microsoft Majong and others. It also displays news on gaming topics, live streams, new games and the ability to access the Xbox Cloud Gaming catalog.

Note that this is not the first “gaming” browser on the PC. Previously, Opera Software released the Opera GX browser with aggressive visual design, support for free casual games, related news and so on.

And earlier in Microsoft Edge added a calculator, a unit converter and a utility to check the speed of the Internet.
