    I've not looked into it, but I think those monitors will be more than £300!!!

    Lots of comments about 720p gaming, making it inferior to other consoles... it does 1080p when docked and plugged into the TV. The handheld console is 720p, with a 6.2" screen, which isn't too bad.
    900p when docked.
    With The legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild! Sorry.

    In short: no.

    In detail: £50-60 a game, £75 for a pair of Joy Cons to play multiplayer, £28 for the dock that charges Joy Cons, £70 for the "pro pad"... And 5 launch games. Everything is poorly priced (they're charging £5 each for glorified wrist straps!) the online service sounds awful (voice chat and parental controls via phone apps? A SNES/NES classic that is only available for a month each time?) and the games that there are either have better versions coming to other platforms or are re-issues. No. I'll get Breath of the Wild for Wii U (apparently the difference is a few less frames, so...) and be happy until a price crash, thanks.

    No, No Way, Never Ever.
    Its way too... Naaah, its crapy console and going with ngridia thats why the price is high. Going X86 would made them a choice but Arm is too damn weak.
    A console with Zen and Radeon would shine on. But we have to wait for that...

    No. I don't do consoles.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    I might if the games offer something different from PC and PS4. Would have to be after a hefty price drop though.

    As others have said, not at that price. The subscription aspect is a turnoff too, but as I'm not interested at that price, or even near to it, I haven't bothered looking into the implications.
