    I think the switch wasn't made to replace the Wii U or 3DS. But I guarantee it will both.

    The only problem I foresee is that it doesnt have any real optical drive so people will get mad about it not playing music and movies.

    I bet the Switch will come out in 16gb, 32gb and 64gb sizes. And it will not have a hard drive it will be MicroSD. For the first 9 months there will be no way to upgrade to 128gb or further.

    We have read that Gamecube games are going to be on the Switch VC so I hope they allow you to download your digital WiiU non VC purchases on there. (ie WW HD, TP HD)
    I bet when the Switch comes out if you get one early enough they will allow you to have a third nnid tied account

    3DS
    Wii U
    Switch

    If you get a switch after say 8 months one of the older two will only allow you to transfer account and you will lose the license rights to games on that device.

    Quite interesting theories there, I agree with some point and other are things I'd like to happen but I am not confident that will be the case. haha.

    s
    That's what I've heard around. Even if it doesn't happen immediately the 3DS era will most likely end as the company focus more on the switch even for the on-the-go titles.

    Nothing new with Nintendo. :.__.:

    I don't think Nintendo is the type to offer different hard disk sizes, I think it is more likely they will choose a size and that'd be the one for sale. I think it is more likely an SD or micro SD serves as extra space than the console not having a hard drive space at all.

    I so want this. It is ridiculous we have to buy for each VC shop, but thanks to the NNID I want to think the switch will be able to offer us to re-download previous purchases. At the very least I am rooting for that to be the case.

    I think it will allow the tie, just how we can tie to Miitomo and stuff. I don't see why they would lock you into do it within the year or else. I think they just will allow you to tie the switch to your account and and then in a few years the WiiU / 3DS accounts will be discarded as the servers become offline.

    I do not think the servers will ever go offline for them fully. I can still download my purchases on my Wii, I can even download new purchases on it. Servers for communications yes.

    I own Every Zelda from the EShop on my 3ds and Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, TCG, Omega Sapphire, Sun and Moon. I will be a little irritated if I cant download it in the future lol.

    Those are good news for me. I haven't tried to redownload Rygar or other Wii purchases since I transferred the system.
    Probably like you say they will keep the Wii U and 3DS e-shop up for a good while because: moooney!

    I've got my digitally almost every Zelda game I could except for the Zelda 3D remakes OoT and MM (I was gifted the physical copy of MM 3D). I even have the ambassador ones. <3
    I definitely would feel really sad if there is no way to transfer them or re-download for the switch. I am also concerned that Nintendo's approach might be, if you bought this title on the 3DS/Wii U you might buy it in our switch eShop for a discounted price. Not sure if I like that, although having the game available might be better than nothing even if I have to pay again or it.
