Analysts discuss why Nintendo's stock dropped after the Switch reveal

Coming from a VentureBeat interview...

Investors were clearly taken aback that Nintendo is just planning to release a tablet-like device with a joypad gimmick that can double as a home console.” - gaming-market analyst Serkan Toto

It's honestly hard to peg down a time when analysts are happy with any announcement from a major gaming company. If they are expecting an announcement, usually they end up unhappy with what they get. Happens to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo alike.
