    With how often your weapons break I'll just wait for an emulator or port to play Breath of the Wild. That and they need to fix the issues like docks scratching the unit and the left joycon disconnecting at random. I don't need another fast paced racing game. Sony is bringing Wipeout 2048 to the console in April, goodbye small ass Vita screen.

    The Know you have any idea when switches will be available for walk in purchase or online purchase at gamestop? nintendo is really lagging and I do not want to buy the current bundle they have for the switch. I ve had the chance to get it serval times but not the current bundle.

    My Switch is awesome because it doesn't take me away from gameplay. I had to walk my dog one time... It's better than taking a bulky gaming PC.

    Well I noticed that arund here you can make a small profit if you can get a switch and resell it, the problem is that they are very expensive.

    How long did it take for people to be able to walk into Gamestop, see lots of Wiis on the shelves and be able to buy one no problem. And when do people think the Switch will be readily available to buy, because it's not selling out because most people have one already? I'm surprised no one has used the Wii to try and figure that out yet.

    Enjoying mine so far. Have only had two minor issues. The time the Switch wasn't recognizing my one joycon controller while playing in tabletop mode so I just put them back on the Switch again to re-pair them with the system. Another the system locked up when I tried to access the e-shop forcing me to turn it off and back on again.

    I have a switch. I like it. if I wanted power than I'll get on PC. once you get your hands on one you will be able to tell that power wasent what they were going for.....this is irrelevant but....the usb-c port is on the bottom because of the dock goddamn it.

    Then we'll see ...

  • nothing1707

    Doesn't this seem like a ploy to get more publicity for the switch? What I mean is doesn't Nintendo decide the number of switches that they forecast to sell? By "doubling output" they get more people to keep talking about the console. And again, this is just a guess but if this is what they are doing it's pretty smart.

    I got one on launch. I am very hopeful for what can be played on the Switch on the goal. The amount of indie games and other 3rd party publishers makes me really hopeful for the system. The potential is there, publishers just need to do it.

    The Dreamcast was an amazing console. It may have been weaker than the PS2, but it looked just as good. Imagine if it did well and decided to make a second gen Dreamcast; it would have been glorious! It's disappointing that so many people bash on it just because it didn't last. Be honest: it was your bae when you bought it.

    I'll wait until the holidays to get mine, I'm looking at the switch as a handheld device so hopefully newer models will get a better battery life (I think right now it lasts like 3 hours)

      3 hours for zelda, 4-5 hours for fast rmx, 5-6 hours shovel knight
      good luck waiting for "better" batteries, this market isn't moving anywhere in the last years - also thinking about it: how long can you play Pokemon Go on your 600$ high end mobile phone? 2 hours - compare that to a game like Zelda BotW

    has anyone ever wondered how many Wii units would have actually sold if they had made enough of them? not a fanboy. ours seldom gets used. I just think that saying the switch is the best Nintendo seller at opening is a bit disingenuous without taking the mass shortages of the Wii into account.

    This is a sign that everyone will be able to get one with not much hassle. There are still those who will try to lure buyers into buying them from their eBay store... for $600.00. People, whatever you do, be patient and wait for official retailers to restock this thing. Do not, please DO NOT give in nor support the scalpers.

  • Chris Lynch

    I got one at launch. It was such a good purchase, I plan on buying 2 more for my kids. So, yeah, Nintendo's on a smart move to ramp up production of the Switch by 2X.
    I guess, the scarcity of the Nintendo New 3DS and New 3DS XL will continue. I just can't seem to be able to buy a new 3ds or 3ds xl at gamestop, target, walmart, best buy, toys r us or whathaveu. Only from scalpers on ebay and amazon. :-(

    I walked in and got my Switch at literally the last second. Thor sent me a sign - he took out my live stream show (they had technical issues which shut down the stream) as I'd been planning on heading up to Game Stop after it was over. I secured the last Switch just seconds before a woman came in asking if there were any left. (They were giving out tickets rather than having ppl wait in line outside in the cold, I think some parents complained.)

    "Casual fans". They are definitely motivated BUT people at Gamercon were starting to realize they needed them. Lots of them had skipped the Wii U or never even gotten into Nintendo before.

    the switch is the first thing i ever pre-ordered
    (because i normally never buy something day 1 anyway)
    and lucky i was, because the switch may have been sold out on day one there but here you could not even pre-order it anymore and if you wanted to buy it on day one: sold out before the store even opened its door

    Bullshit, it is a marketing trick, we don't decide these things like
    this so quickly : "HEY let's double that dudes !!!"
    Stop being naive please, they have just reported a launch 15-20% higher
    than expectation, which is really great, but announcing that the prod
    will be doubled, with all the real industrial consequences, is only a
    trick to make buzz, hype and to produce a TON of article which talks
    about this.

    If the Switch starts getting some of the strong titles coming up -KHIII- man, that would make this a killer console. I'm waiting on that game a well as FFVII remake to come out and I'm buying a PS4 unless they bring them to this console, which I doubt but still hope.
