Nvidia’s CEO Talks up the Upcoming Nintendo Switch
Cernescu Andrei / 3 years ago
With the upcoming Nintendo Switch, Nvidia is looking to make a comeback in the gaming console segment, and judging by what we know so far, it looks like this particular console is going to be pretty amazing. That’s kind of what Jen-Hsun Huang said himself when he talked about the product and the relationship between Nvidia and Nintendo, which will likely last for at least two decades. That’s hardly surprising considering that the Japanese company is known for sticking with a single architecture for a long time, and if the Switch does indeed turn out to be a great success, it’s likely that the two will join up for other projects in the future. Here is Jen-Hsun Huang’s statement regarding the Nintendo Switch:
“And so that’s a real advantage and we’re really proud of them. I guess you could also say that Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth. And over the next – as you know, the Nintendo architecture and the company tends to stick with an architecture for a very long time. And so we’ve worked with them now for almost two years. Several hundred engineering years have gone into the development of this incredible game console. I really believe when everybody sees it and enjoy it, they’re going be amazed by it. It’s really like nothing they’ve ever played with before. And of course, the brand, their franchise and their game content is incredible. And so I think this is a relationship that will likely last two decades and I’m super excited about it.”
We’re likely to learn more about this console in about two months, and we’ll definitely see if it will live up to its hype in March when it will become available in all regions. Are you looking forward to this upcoming hybrid video game console?
