Nintendo explains the differences between 3DS & Switch, thinks key factor in what you decide to buy is price

Coming from Reggie Fils-Aime...

“The gaming experience is a bit different. The Switch is more powerful than the 2DS and 3DS machines, and has other hardware differences. A key one: a DS is smaller than the Switch tablet, making it easier to fit into a pocket or backpack. For many consumers, the decision to buy one Nintendo device over another likely will come down to price. At $299, a Switch costs about double a new 2DS XL. Having multiple Switches is expensive."

Price is definitely going to be a major factor for parents when looking into picking up a gaming device for kids. New 2DS XL is cheaper and has a much larger library of games than Switch. In a few years, we'll see where this match-up stands.

IGN - Nintendo says more 3DS announcements at E3 and after, talks Nintendo Selects and 3DS VC support

Coming from an IGN interview with Reggie Fils-Aime...

“We will certainly be announcing new titles for the 3DS platform, and we’ll do that continuously. Some things that will be announced at E3. There will be some that we announce after E3. For us, E3 is an important event but it’s not the one defining moment. Obviously with Nintendo Direct, we’ve created means to speak directly to our consumer base. We want to provide news and information when we believe it’s most relevant."

On Nintendo Selects

"In terms of Nintendo Selects, we think the line is very strong right now. We need to evaluate for new potential additions, but we’ve got nothing to announce right now."

On more Virtual Console content for 3DS

"We know that there is tremendous interest in this overall area. We're blessed with having a tremendous legacy of content that we've launched across our various platforms. We've got nothing to announce right now in terms of Virtual Console offerings, whether it's on 3DS or Switch, but we know there's a tremendous amount of interest in this area.”

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is Amazon's best-selling game of 2017 so far

This is absolutely insane. How is this even possible?! Were there that many preorders for the game? According to Amazon's best-selling games of 2017 list, which they say is updated daily, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is their best-selling game of 2017. It falls in the 3rd position overall, with PSN cards taking the first and second spots. The next game comes in at the 4th position, which is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch. Zelda is selling ridiculously well, but in terms of Amazon sales, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has already beaten it on its launch day?! Either something fishy is going on, or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is going to be a massive success.
