Then also the whole charging a monthly fee like PS+ or XBLive Gold, according to Eurogamer you get 1 game per month, either a NES or SNES classic, now it is a bit ambiguous but it sounds like you only get the game for a month, not like PS+ where you can re-download something from ages ago provided you added it to account and have a live sub and it stays with you until you uninstall it.

    Just have to wait and see, I am not really seeing anything better than the Wii U at the moment, maybe they should have done a Wii U refresh with more power, normal controller and so on to draw in the crowds.

    I want one yes, but at that price most likely not

    Here's hoping on a SNES Mini.........
    Yeah I think Nintendo should have gone for a high performance under the TV box. Something that could have run 1920x1080 at 50-60FPS with some AA.

    The online pay monthly service just sounds strange considering this is obviously more DS than Wii. How are people going to connect to the service while out?
    I'm hoping it will be viewed more as a replacement for the 3ds.

    I've never owned a handheld. Not because there aren't any good games - there are some like Phoenix Wright, Bravely Default and Persona 4 Golden that I am interested in - but because I have never seen the point of playing any game that matters at low resolution on a tiny screen.

    Having a low resolution mode on the go and a full resolution mode when displaying on a big screen is something I think should have happened a long time ago (unlike that Playstation TV thing...).

    Nope. Nintendo should give up making hardware and should just develop their mobile games for phones and their other ones on proper consoles/ pc.

    So the £80 for the Zelda collectors edition might not interest you then

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

    I've been itching to get a Wii-U for ages, but Nintendo have a habbit of just turning things off and ditching their old consoles so it's never given me confidence to put my money on the table especially if say the Virtual Console just disappears (which is what I bought the original Wii for). A big problem with the Switch is that the games are a whopping £50... I wouldnt pay that for BF1 like EA were asking so I wouldnt be getting these, and their depreciation value will be high.
    The price of the hardware actually doesnt put me off at all, but the ongoing costs of an online subscription and wildly high game prices do.
    I won't be pre-ordering but will be watching the final product with hawk eyes. Nintendo have always made brilliant single player games, somehow they tap into my dyslexic and autistic mind.

    Nope. I think they made a device at cross-purposes; a Jack-of-No-Trades.

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

    At £280 ($340) in the UK, with no games, that's just too darn expensive. I love the concept, but unless the price hits ~£200 including one good game, I'll give it a miss.

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

    Probably, but only when there's a brand new Mario Kart and a Zelda game that won't come to Wii U. I've got more physical Wii/Wii U/3DS games than I've ever had at any one time for any console or PC, so I think we like Nintendo in our house :-)

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

    Will I buy? No.

    Why not? First, pricing. Second, I neither need nor want a portabke, battery-powered console, so I'd be paying a premium for features I've no interest in at all.

    XBOne? Perhaps, if MS allow me to physically disable cameras, mics, and subject to my privacy audit.

    PS4? A little more likely, subject to a similar privacy audit.

    But I'm not bothered enough about either to have even looked at them for at least a couple of years.

    Switch? I just don't see it.

    Because a PC is hardly portable and local split-screen is hardly included in a lot of titles anymore?

    But at that price yeah i'm not buying it.

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

    I pre ordered one friday morning. Not had a Nintendo console for a while (I skilled the failure that was the Wii-U) so i am curious what they do with this one. I don't think it's too expensive - I think they got the launch price about right and they will still sell out at that price. Worth a punt to play the new Zelda

    Reading about it some more, I'm looking forward to seeing what is done with the haptic feedback and IR camera. The main reason I have consoles is for alternate style interaction that doesn't exists on the PC.

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

    It's a high price and doesn't even include a game in that base price. Wii Sports wasn't exactly the best game of all time but it was something to keep people entertained a while before other stuff came out. But you gotta pay £50 for a game on top of that £280. I personally don't think the hardware price is too much. It's everything else that bumps up the price far too much. Shame, at £200 and slightly cheaper games and other hardware and it probably would have been a sale for me.

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

    Haha no I won't. It's wiiu all over again, game support will soon dry up thanks to the weak ass mobile gpu. And £300 for a glorified 720p tablet with no game and rippoff accessory prices. On top of that they want money for their crap online service. Nintendo are living a fantasy land and I can't wait for them to fail.
