Nope....not on release anyways. I may consider it when the price drops and more titles come.

I'd like to, but I'll probably pass on it until maybe the 3rd or 4th quarter of this year. Need to save up for a few more important things first.

overprice system and accessories. lackluster game lineup. etc.. so no. having a hybrid system is an interesting idea though


the wii u didn't do so well.. so they decided to make a wii u 2.0 ? at first glance i thought was an updated version of the wii-u or something

720p screen and 32GB of storage.. it's 2107.. not 2012-2013

even the low-end Blu phone ($150) get 1080p resolution screen

while Switch has a 6.2in ? only getting 720p.. and the crappy battery life of ? 2 1/2 - 6 hours?


nexus 6 is a 5.96 in with 1440p resolution phone.the battery life is around 4-6 hours.. at 720p.. it thought at least the switch will get at least 8-10 hours of playtime..

i know some will call it a portable system.. but it's clearly more console than portable.. given the crappy battery life..

well.. at least expanding the storage side will be a lot cheaper the vita..

The last Nintendo I got myself was the 2ds, because I wanted to play Pokemon Sun.
The last before that was the Gameboy Advance, so I guess that sums up my relation to Nintendo consoles

Yes. I have the Switch and BotW Special Edition pre-ordered off Amazon. It'd probably be smarter to wait, but I kinda wanna experience the novelty of getting a console on release day, lol.

This thing has almost as much as the Wii U did in RPGs and it hasn't even launched yet. And as RPG fan that makes me happy.

This is the one thing that the Switch does have going for it in my eyes, especially in that it's not going to be region locked.

Not at launch, I'm going to wait for the game catalog to mature. I can get BotW for Wii U and nothing else excites me until Mario Odyssey. Even then I'm not going to buy a system for a single game.

I'm going to wait. As of right now the only game I would get on Switch is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild but that is also available on Wii U.

I bought the Wii U on day one and we all know how its first year went

If the Pokemon Stars rumor ( http://ca.ign.com/articles/2016/11/18/pokemon-stars-third-version-of-sunmoon-reportedly-coming-to-nintendo-switch ) is true and it was going to be a launch title then that would certainly push me to buy the Switch.

Yes I am. Because it's cheap and it isn't region locked.

I'll probably get one around September or so... Or when the Japanese library grows.

Probably not. I respect Nintendo for being a little more imaginative with their consoles, but very few of the games on them interest me at all.
Maybe if Xenoblade Chronicles X gets a sequel, I'll consider picking one up cheap like I did with the Wii U.


Xenoblade 2 is in dev as we speak, It will be more like the first one that chronicles.

I own a Wii U so there aren't a lot of games coming out around launch that I want, but by the end of the year it'll have Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade 2 and Mario Odyssey so I decided to pre-order it anyway since it's probably not going to get a price drop before something I want comes out. I can't think of a console that had a better first year than that so I'm pretty damn excited, even if I'm probably not going to be playing it much between Zelda and Splatoon 2.
