I feel like this stupid chat is going to mean half of the Switch playerbase are going to be using Discord, Skype, Google Hangouts, or literally any other outside source.

I already use the Discord app on my phone and it's very easy to use. I'm very hesitant about Nintendo's approach. It sounds like you need the app to even invite friends. It feels very "Nintendo" lol

My GS bundle has updated to released, but still says not shipped. It still had 8 days counting down til the 21st yesterday, so hopefully this means it will ship today?

I ordered on 7/8.

You should have cancelled it and got it on Tuesday when the Walmart app had the console without requiring a bundle purchase

What's everyone's experience with the GameStop bundles? The employee at my store said that I could buy it and return/exchange individual items in-store, even though the fine print says you can't. I'm looking at the ARMS bundle, but I'd rather either return it for full credit or exchange for something else.

It's a YMMV type situation. Before the bundles became an official thing at GS, they would allow returns for individual items, but then they added the fine print and stopped. I think it's still up to the discretion of the store in question, so if an employee or manager said OK, you may be able to. 

 

I had a friend who was a manager, and I know he would do it for me, no questions asked. But he left for greener pastures awhile ago, so I wouldn't personally try it at this point, unless I felt comfortable with the person telling me it's OK. So tread cautiously.

Half?  I feel like 96% of online users wont bother with chat at all because of this.

After playing Battlefield 1 & Overwatch for months I can count with 1 hand the times I heard people actually talking on PS4.

People who want to play organized with friends or other people they know online use discord. It's been like that for awhile.

The Switch chat setup is garbage, but I do enjoy my switch. When MK8 released a buddy and I just hopped in an Xbox party and chatted there while playing on the switch. Have used discord once for voice and thought it was pretty bad.

Sucks you have to jump through hoops to chat with your friends. Nintendo dropped the ball big time in that regard. I can remember using voice chat on my psp without hoops 10 years ago. Lol!

I had traded in a bunch of retro stuff during that 70% bonus thing last week, so had $500 in GS credit. Plus, I wanted all the games in the bundle or I would have waited.

It did end up shipping today. Says it should arrive by Tuesday.

I bought a switch bundle at gamestop.  how hard would it be to exchange the Arms game for  Splatoon 2?  is it allowed?

Sounds like it will depend on your store. My store said no returning individual pieces of a bundle, but some people I've seen said their stores were fine with it. I'd say an exchange has a better chance than a straight return though.

The Target in Gulfport, MS had 4 consoles on the shelf last night when I was in the store. It seems that Target keeps getting a good stock among their stores.

I seen 6 last night at my store (edit: Target). Haven't had a lot of trouble finding any around where I live, but I'm going to wait a while since I never really put a lot of time into my Wii or Wii U (or GameCube for that matter lol).

My local GS manager said it was fine to exchange the games in the bundle for different games, but not the other accessory pieces and no straight up return of individual pieces.  Again ymmv depending on the manager though.

Why? If I may ask.

I just want my own dedicated system for home and one that can leave the dock at any given moment for my son. After debating I ordered a 2nd bundle. I'm going to sell all the accessories and keep the actual console only. I honestly don't know why I haven't considered doing this in the beginning.

I already have two sets of joycons and 2 pro controllers. The biggest problem is saves, luckily I only care about Zelda and I'm only 3 hours into hard mode. I kinda regret going digital but I feel pretty strongly about keeping Mario kart 8 digital.... It's just one of the games I always want on me

Ok, that makes sense.  My kids aren't old enough for games so I can't justify doing it myself but I see where your coming from.

Does anyone know of any sites that track when games go on sale in the Nintendo Switch eShop?

Frisky should post them in our normal e-shop thread if and when some happen. As that is where the Wii U and 3DS have been posted, so no need for an NS specific thread I would think.

If you're still looking for one and you live on the west coast, check Fred Meyer. They got in a bunch for their weekly ad. My local store has had barely any since launch but they had a ton today.

Second the Chicago area question, It seems really hard to find, especially with all that Gamestop credit to burn.
