My local GameStop still isn't sure if they'll be doing a midnight launch, but I assume they will since they sold their allotment of 40 systems. Although, I'm thinking about not going even if they have one since I have work on Friday and I really don't want to take off.

I'm fine with picking it up after work.

I have one pre-ordered, but there's a lack of launch games that appeal to me.  I'll probably end up cancelling it or returning it.

 

I'll likely get one in the fall or after Christmas after Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey release.  The only launch title I want to play of BoW, so I'll just play the Wii U version for now.

This is the best review I've seen. Short, sweet, and to the point. Now I want the neon color scheme it's fully grown on me.

I canceled my pre-order from Best Buy but I'm still oddly tempted to try and pre-order again. It's a sick compulsion. I know if I can just wait until launch I'll be fine and I can be patient and wait until there's better value, but I just can't shake the desire to pre-order in spite of the fact that it's grossly expensive for what you get and the line-up is abysmal.

This is exactly how i am right now!

I debated ordering some red joy cons but I just know they will have some cool ones come out so I'm doing my best to wait it out

What ridiculous hyperbole.  If you really think that, there's no reason to be even considering buying one.

I'll grab a game I want here and there and just wait till black Friday to see if I can get a bundle with a controller since I refuse to pay 70 for one.

I broke that habit of needing to get stuff right when it comes out and not get caught up in other people's excitement of "its new and everyone wants it so I want it"

It will be the same old nintendo system aside from the gimmicks. I'll only play the first party switch exclusive games and that's it and it won't be like hard to get them at all and they will stay at a high msrp. So I'm no rush to play yet another Mario game. I will, just later on.

System, Zelda, pro controller, and Puyo Tetris on order. The future is definitely brighter than the Wii u, and I liked a good number of those games. Bring on the 3rd.

Well, sadly you missed out bc through a convoluted system you could transfer your entire wii vc to your wiiu includig your wii digital store balance.

You could access it all through the wii channel, it was in effect a wii in your wiiu bc it had the old hardware

Oddly enough they have a NNID and a Nintendo acocunt now and I believe they will merge these. This is how they will move away from accounts tied to hardware. Since the NnID can be used on 3ds and wiiu

I knew it could be done but it seemed like a huge pain just to get a few games back that I probably only would have played a few more times. There really is no excuse for them not letting you be able to just go back into the shop and hit download again on previous purchases.

 

You can use your points on the Wii U, in the Wii shop channel.
Assuming you still have them on cards. Idk if those cards expire...don't know much about the Wii.

: P

Not being able to spend them in the Wii U shop is why I never redeemed them.

To those who have it pre ordered but are still on fence: You can always return it at Best Buy, etc.

I've seen a few of those on twitter and reddit... it gets a bit cringey  :rofl:

As others have mentioned, where in the world are the limited edition Zelda Gold Joy-Cons?

Yes, I do. 

Haha, nope.

 

"This thing costs a fortune and there are NO GOOD GAMES!"

 

Now THAT is hyperbole. But saying that it's significantly over-priced and that the launch line-up stinks is pretty damn reasonable. Now, if it was $250, came bundled with 1-2 Switch, had more than 32GB of storage, and Mario Odyssey was also in the launch window, well, that would be a different story. A much better story, in fact.

Was on the fence about bomberman, seemed like the kind of game you'd pay 10-15 dollars for on xbla or psn, not a 50 dollar release. After hearing multiple account the game actually ran poorly, i decided against it. Thanks Nick51705 for the feedback about the game, I decided I'm only getting zelda and isaac at launch.

I'd certainly jump on-board at launch if that were the case.

And that would be called unreasonable expectations.

Yeah, but no one actually expects what I posted. Not from Nintendo. I'm just saying that would actually be a good value.

 

But I will say this: $250 and 1-2 Switch bundled is absolutely not unreasonable. $300 with no pack-in game? THAT is unreasonable.

So, I'm going to assume that there's no chance in hell of pre-ordering one now?

I honestly cannot wait. Less than a month to go, first time console pre-order buying. I get to experience it with everyone else, the highs and the lows. Hopefully more highs.

You definitely can say it's reasonable/unreasonable. Doesn't mean you're right.

$300 without a pack in is slightly unreasonable, but so is $250 with one. 

 

$300 with 12Switch would be ideal.

Trust me, it's not all that great. *L* I've preordered the PSP, PS2, and Wii. That's all. Well, I won't wait in line anymore.

Froze my balls off waiting overnight for the Wii. It was an experience though. Thankfully, my sleeping bag was set up right next to an outlet, so I could play my PSP all night.

But in the end, would I do it again? Fuck NO.

Fuck the Wii.

For the tech included? Yes, $250 with a game is unreasonable. It's fine if you don't find value in what they chose to include with the system, but for everything they've shown us the price is a reasonable expectation. Before the presentation I'd have agreed with you, but considering everything going on inside of the joycons and quality of the console tablet, the price seems on point.

 

Just wait for the tech to get cheaper when they bundle a game with it.

Any know if there will be game sharing with the Switch?  I plan to buy one for myself and one for my son, but damn if I'm buying a game for each of the consoles.  I have one on pre-order but gonna wait to see about the online services details before I open mine.  If they don't have a robust account system like the Xbox One or PS4 I'm just gonna pass.  Dealing with the frustration of having to transfer all my crap over every time I buy a 3DS (I buy a lot of them) is gonna be straight up unacceptable for this new generation.

Just hack your 3DS and rip the games so you can put them on each system.

I've been trying to find other sources that say the same thing but I can't. Mind posting some for others to see too?

I keep going back to trailers and gameplay of the multiplayer and that's NOT how it ran in person but I can't seem to find other reviews that mention the same.

The funny thing is EVEN if they were giving me 1-2Switch as a pack-in

I'd just pretend I didn't see it & leave it in the box  :D/

I want nothing to do with that game.

I plan on having the occasional drunken night with it.
