Nintendo Switch Discussion quote:

Surprised i haven't seen one of these threads, is everybody really not interested in this thing or is it just one of those things you don't admit?

I picked one up on launch day, just surprised the kids with it last night, unfortunately none of the launch titles appeal to us (Never played the Zelda series and honestly 1-2 switch s a demo game that should have been included, not paying $65 for it) so now it is just gonna collect dust for a couple months until Mario Kart 8 comes out...

Really looking forward to some family games, got an extra pair of joycons, i want to play Mario Kart 8, Super Smash brow, Mario Odessey, mario Party, Trivia games, etc....

Honestly this is the least excited i have ever been to buy a launch day system, i really wish they had some better/more launch titles, even re-releases of WiiU games would be nice.

Oh well, maybe we'll be surprised with some decent DLC or something.

Lack of games, a bit gimmicky with the whole portable gaming thing especially since it's got terrible battery life, and lots of problems with connectivity. Also once again Nintendo decides to restrict stock to build demand.

Not going to be surprised when it sells as well as the Wii U.

The only game that intrigues me is that boxing game called "Arms". Looks different.

And give it another year+ at least until the new Smash Bros. is released. They love to milk that shit.

Mario Kart 8 is bullshit - Should be 9, instead they're adding a couple courses and some new characters.

I can't believe there is only 2 Launch titles, wtf is the point - Their killer app is Zelda i suppose that's the game most people will buy the system for but after you're done, now what?

Wait 6 months for Mario and then another couple of years for Smash Bros?

Nintendo is focusing on gimmicks as Rage said and not what people buy systems for...THE GAMES!

Got it on release date. Overall build is amazing. Zelda is the greatest zelda so far, been playing bomberman as well and i have to say im quite impressed. Also the supply is not as limited as people here are making it out to be. Some Eb games had about 70-80 extra units at each location for walk ins.


Oh and there is 4 launch titles ... not 2 although the 2 others are lame... lol

I'll buy one when I can actually find one. I wasn't in a huge rush due to the lack of launch titles. The kids love the Wii U, we're working our way through the Virtual Console games in the meantime.

I think the build quality is very nice, the battery life, realistically 2.5-6 hours is reasonable for constant use, most tablets with a decent size screen and good processing power fall within the same range for constant use... its pretty much a balance between making it wiiU massive and giving it reasonable battery life, most people will be using the portability for a bus ride to and from work and charging it every day, not a gaming marathon.

I think this one will be a HIT, it has to be, Nintendo and Nvidia basically gave this everything they've got, they're both in trouble if this isn't huge, the basically scripted a brand new OS around the hardware so its a lot more efficient and better performance than android boxes with the same hardware.

We'll see how things shake out, i am a little put off by the pricing, everything seems about 15-20% too high, controllers, accessories, games, etc... but maybe they'll realize that and reduce some stuff sooner than normal.

Not sure why the lack of release games, but apparently Nintendo gave Japan most of the stock because they had more release games. It's still BS Nintendo fake hype.

so out of a million units a couple people have issues, clearly QC is a problem. i agree that the strap pieces are more difficult to remove than they should be, but its not a huge issue.

I always wait for holidays deals to purchase these things. Earliest I will buy it is the holiday bundle at the end of the year. And even then I'd wager that the title selection is weak.

Edit: On a sidenote, I'm busting out my Game Gear as this thread made me feel like playing it again. Man, Power Rangers is such a SICK game on it.

i agree, TBH the only reason i bought it is because i had a bunch of gift cards i got as gifts or on a discount, so i really paid about half price for the system in the end.

Build quality is fine imo, just the loud majority every time. Played a bit of zelda since mine arrived yesterday and it is phenomenal. I like the concept so far but those accessory prices are still bonkers, especially the dock. I did buy a pro controller though as the joy cons are fairly small so when it is not attached to the system (Grip or one in each hand), I find it kind of uncomfortable. I now have 1, 2 Switch and Zelda and that should be fine for now. A few digital games are already up on the shop like shovel knight and snipper clips (Tried this demo, it is pretty fun). Will buy the mario games as they come out also. Strong launch sales should lead to an increase in 3rd party titles as well.

I dunno, it seems to me that there are more then a few quality issues.

The charger port on the bottom is a fail.

The cheap dock that scratches the console is a fail.

The complaint with the straps is not that they are hard to remove when used properly. It is that they can be installed the wrong way and get stuck (similar to the Samsung note stylus going in backwards and can't come out). This one is a huge fail for a console that is aimed at kids.

This joycons needing to be so close to the console for connectivity is also a fail in my opinion. Although not as big of one as most reviews I read say the joycons are terrible to use so most people are going to buy the pro controller anyways.
