    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying the Nintendo Switch?

    I think of lot of people will buy this at launch, particularly those receiving their end-of-financial-year bonus, but I won't be one of them.

    I think it looks great, but it's too expensive, especially in terms of peripherals and games. Given its portable nature, I also wouldn't be surprised if a Switch XL or Switch Lite launches in a year or two.

    Finances and quality of games permitting, this does interest me in a way that the Wii U simply never did, but it's not at the right price point.

    Hopefully this will be the N64 launch where they dropped the price from £250 to £150 in pretty short measure when says started off sluggish. (At £280, it's a tough sell. At £180, it'd be a very-tempting offer.)

    Cut the price in half with mario kart thrown in i'll think about I'd rather put the money towards a good 4k monitor to be honest.

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying the Nintendo Switch?

    Just got a Wii U, so I suppose I might get a Switch a in 2021. I'm not enough of a gamer these days to go for a new console.

    I do hope that the using a common mobile part will allow Nintendo to upgrade this easily, offering a more powerful Switch in the future, with compatibility for the older Switch.

    Definately not. I think consoles are great for those that have a use for them but even then why would anyone waste money on 'the 3rd option'? If you want a console, grab a Playstation. Otherwise just use a PC at home or a smart phone on the move.

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying the Nintendo Switch?

    No. The price is too high and the main draw of it (the portability) is wasted because of the poor battery life (3 hours for Zelda).

    Nintendo should just remove itself from the console market and focus only on handheld gaming (not the console/handheld hybrid like the Switch is) and/or start releasing its older games (from the NES all the way to the Wii U) on Android, iOS, PS4, XO, and PC. They'll be rolling in money.

    Not until the price drops. £279 is serious hardware money and I'd only want it for Zelda...

    Maybe if the price drops/gets a game included with a price drop on the games on top. A little bummed about the online subscription too.

    Nope. Not particularly into Nintendo stuff, but I have enjoyed the odd game or two from the Zelda series.
