We've known for some time now that Nintendo's upcoming console would have portability baked in. The new product trailer for the Switch (formerly known by its project name NX) reveals that living room-to-pocket is just one of the options afforded to future owners of Nintendo's ambitious product.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The Switch is a brand new console from Nintendo. You can play games on it on your TV, but you can also play games on it not on your TV. Yep, the Switch switches: taking the best parts of the Wii U and the PlayStation 4's Remote Play, it's a console that you can take with you and play wherever you are.

If you're a working on an Animal Crossing rip off or a Fire Emblem clone, it is time to pack it in and give it up. You're going to fail. Nintendo is finally dipping its toes into the iOS and Android app market and your two-person operation in Round Rock can't compete.
