There's only a week and a half to go before the Nintendo Switch is officially available at our local gaming stores, but the highly anticipated device is still shrouded in mystery.
But a leak over the weekend changed this after NeoGAF user hiphoptherobot, for some reason or another, got his Nintendo Switch early, Arstechnica reports.
Naturally, the lucky gamer created an unboxing video showing the user interface of the device and posted it online. His initial upload has already been taken down by Nintendo but others have already reuploaded his short demo video.
Aside from showing a quick glimpse of the basic user interface, it is also seen in the video that the Nintendo Switch actually has an initial 25.9 GB capacity. This means that its default memory is at 32 GB but around 6.1 GB of space has been eaten up by its operating system and other required programs.
We’re not sure yet how big game file sizes are for the Nintendo Switch but 25.9 GB is definitely not enough in today’s standards. Fortunately, the device allows memory capacity expansion of up to 2 TB.
It’s not just the console that's been making an early appearance, but also some games are starting to appear in shops even before their official launch. If you played earlier iterations of this game, then you know your childhood was awesome.
The Nintendo Switch will hit gaming shelves on Mach 3, 2017 at a price point of $299.99 or roughly P15,100, but Philippine prices have already been estimated at the P22,000 to P25,000 range.
