To quote from the video's caption: Introducing Nintendo Switch! In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose.

The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

They looks neat! However, I won't buy it until it is a 3rd party fully support. I know a few 3rd party is now support it but I said a "few" is not a good enough. A lacking of fully support is need first.
