Nintendo is about to make me double dip on MK8. I *JUST* bought the digital version for my son because I thought he'd play it frequently enough.

Now I need that steelbook.


A few months after Mario Maker came out, my Best Buy had a stack of the pre-order pin sets on the shelf for eight bucks.

So I'm looking to buy a Switch and the PS4 pro star war limited edition (I like the design lol) but I have a few questions, and maybe someone out there knows the answers

-Should I buy the Switch now, or should I wait for a price drop? (With Nintendo, I doubt it'll be anytime soon lol)
-If the answer is to buy it now, should I buy it this week, or the next week? Next week has that 64GB deal but I don't know if it's a good deal or nah.
-The last Nintendo console that I owned was the N64, so what do I need to know about the Switch? Are there extra things that I need to buy as in important accessories that don't come in the box?

Now for the PS4 Pro:
-Is it worth it? I have a slim PS4, and the Scorpio. I heard that the PS4 pro can't run native 4k

If I place an order to pick up a Pro this week, but pick it up next week, say, on Sunday, would I be able to take an advantage of this deal?

I think those are my questions so far, I will be grateful to whoever takes his/her time reading/answering this!

I would buy the switch sooner than later. Get a pro Controller and a screen protector and you should be good. I got a carry case because I take mine out of my game room sometimes but it isn't necessary

IMO the best screen protector for the switch !
https://www.amazon.c...rotector switch

I would get it now, with a micro sd (the largest one that you can find in your budget)
If you don't have Zelda yet, get the Explorers edition .

For the Pro vs Switch I’d probably go Pro because there’s deals to be had right now and Nintendo doesn’t discount much if at all. I’ve got both and use my Pro a lot more but I do also have Odyssey, Zelda, MK8 and a few others right now.

What's the largest sd supported by the switch? Which one do you personally recommend?

Oh I was aiming to get both lol but was wondering if the Pro is worth getting it as I have the Xbox Scorpio (X1X)

Pick up the Switch.  You already have a Slim Ps4 and Scorpio.  I don't know about you, but there's something awesome about playing a Nintendo game like Zelda or Mario on Christmas.

2tb I think, but I don't think that type of card exists yet.

I would go with SanDisk 256gb that's what i'm using right now.

You're going to need a case as well. Depending on how much and what you want to carry.

I upgraded my PS4 to a Pro and kinda regret my decision. I also have a Scorpio (which I prefer the controller and play multiplatforms on) now for 4k stuff so I just use my PS4 for fighting games and Horizon. The only game coming to it that I'm looking forward to is Spiderman. I'll eventually get a PSVR probably so I'll appreciate HDR in the Pro, but outside of that I don't see the benefit UNLESS you want to use PS4 as your default platform. If you're ambivalent, use your Scorpio for 4k needs and go for a regular PS4. Although the special Star Wars edition is pretty sweet.

That's actually true. I'm pretty excited to own a Nintendo console again!

Did you get it from Amazon or BBY?

Definitely! My main/default console is Xbox, and I'm in love with the 4K, which is why I wanted to get a Pro to enjoy some of the exclusives on PS4. I guess there's no need tho, but yea that Star Wars edition is killing me haha

If you already have a PS4 Slim, it's perfectly adequate if you need to play its exclusives, and the PS4 Pro is not worth the money for such a small graphical upgrade.  I regret trading in my regular and dropping another $250 toward a Pro, especially since I got an Xbox One X which games look better on anyway. Definitely get the Switch though...Super Mario Odyssey is fantastic.

What's usually a good price for these memories? Also, what brand did you get?

Alright, decided. Not gonna get the ps4 pro. I'm kinda bummed out as the Star Wars limited edition seems really nice, but it's not worth to throw that money out for something that will disappoint me. I LOVE the xbox one X too, it was a huge update from having the OG Xbox one to the X, and also it's not like i will be spending tons of time on the ps4 lol so yea, I'll stick with my ps4 slim

Okay I have Rabbids, Pokken, Odessy, and Arms in the cart. Here’s hoping for glitch so they all get discounted.

Kind of shitty for a steelbook release of MK8 8 months after release. Already bought it

Rabbids right now is $23 after GCU, not seeing the discount for the other switch titles.

No, it's working...it's taking the $30 off of Rabbids. Problem is, it's taking off of the normal price while it's still on sale for $40 all by itself. So right now, you're only saving $8 with GCU.

 

EDIT: Now Rabbids is back to normal price. Also, the MK8 steelbook is showing in cart now. No glitches to be found.

So, clearly its not working right + I'm not seeing the Mario Kart 8 steelbook either. W/o the promotion the steelbook is in the cart if you add Mario Kart 8 alone. 

 

Edit: Damn.

It’s discounting rabbids $30 off $59.99 which makes it $29.99 and it’s taking GCU off that which is $23.99.
