Yesterday Nintendo finally showed its new home console to the world, a system which mixes portable and domestic gaming in a unique new way.

It hasn't taken long for the industry to react, and Martyn Gibbs - CEO of UK specialist retailer GAME Digital - has voiced his opinion on the hybrid console, claiming it is yet another case of the Japanese giant distancing itself from its rivals with innovative concepts:

As today's teaser video demonstrates, the SWITCH is another example of Nintendo differentiating its gaming experiences to appeal to a broad array of gamers. Nintendo has consistently developed home consoles and handheld gaming to see its beloved and engaging games and characters deliver ultimate fun and enjoyment. SWITCH is clearly taking some of the best features of handheld and home consoles and merging them into a fantastic new way to play. We will be bringing more details to our customers as soon as possible.

Nintendo has stated that there will be no more Switch news until next year. The console launches in March.
