Nintendo flips the Switch

Techstination feature for Thursday, January 26, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Can Nintendo get gamers to Switch?   We’ll find out soon enough.    Nintendo’s new Switch gaming system will arrive in March…with the company hoping to revive its game console business.   The Wii U couldn’t keep up with the competition from Microsoft and Sony.   The Switch is a portable gaming tablet that can also dock with your TV for big screen play.   The portable screen …which is 6.2 inches and 720p HD resolution, comes in with 32 gigabytes of storage.   Nintendo’s big name game franchises like Mario and Zelda will undoubtedly be one of the biggest selling points.   The price of the Switch will be 299 dollars….more than the entry level prices for Microsoft’s Xbox One or Sony’s PS4.     It goes on sale March 3rd.    You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
