The only major downside of the Nintendo switch is the lack of Pascal chips and an underclocked processor which would really impact some high-graphic intensive games even if downscaled to match the specifications of the switch.

A reddit thread officially revealed that the Nintendo switch will reportedly support Vulkan, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenGL ES considering the huge deal about Vulkan which would be very much important for future titles that's coming out in the stores which is really exciting for potential buyers. Interesting in particular is a question on the possibility of buying individually additional dock of Switch.

"I hear same week NA and JP". Press event and public hands on demo units do not. "If the press event units are anything to go on you'll need an USB to ethernet dongle again". Some time after launch there will be extra docks. "This is based on sources". I don't have sources on this, this is speculation.

This leaves room for game developers to adjust to the customers' needs by tweaking their games either by upscaling or downscaling them in various modes such as being played at home or on a portable device. Beyond Good and Evil 2 may also make a surprise appearance during the January presentation, with a CGI teaser now in the works.

"I have heard a CGI teaser for BGE2 is in the works, less than a minute long (double sourced). Can't place any other events they would be prepping it for".

In any case, at the moment the house of Kyoto has not announced anything about the availability of accessories for Switch, so we will certainly know more on January 13, date of presentation of the new console.

Yep, stuff you're not expecting. Despite its huge popularity, Nintendo's new device can not hope to stand a chance regarding sales when it has the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as its direct competitors. Being scheduled for released in March 2017 it is able to operate as both console and tablet via its 720p in-built display.
