I'm not normally one to pop into the Nintendo thread, so please be kind on a newbie. I would like to pick up a Switch, and I want to wait until the new one with the fancy battery comes out. All the articles I read said a vague August.

 

Has anyone heard anything more about when these might be hitting shelves?

I think they are already out, you just have to be lucky to find a store with enough business that they keep getting re orders
Or buy from nintendo to be safe lol then you can bug them all the time

Someone said the new ones start without the A so its XW or something.....idk

Point is, get one when you want, i really dont think its much of a difference if you get a console without drift issues (i have a new one, and its slightly better battery, much better kick stand i Moo, better joycons that dont drift, but the same exact thing,....)

They couldnt sell (pre-order) the Switch Lite until FCC approval, which just happened. Changing the Switch also required FCC approval, cant just change the internals and send them out without approval first. Big no-no. 

 

https://nintendosoup...s-fcc-approval/

here is the link to Nintendo's FCC change request for the full size Switch. (note the change to a december 2016 approval)

https://fccid.io/BKE...-Letter-4349995

 

(And light FCC rules reading about change requests)

https://apps.fcc.gov...=33013&switch=P

 

TLDR=FCC requires testing before a new or modified product can be sold. or a recall/lawsuit from FCC will begin. (thats real BAD PR)

Mid-August. They mention the beginning of the serial number to look out for.

Unless it's reprinted, you'll almost certainly spend more than $22 for the book on ebay. As for the Euro version, I think you're out of luck on that one.

I thought I heard there was mention of new packaging as well (to alleviate the issue of having to check serial numbers), but that might have been rumor/speculation.

The packaging is different, but not overly so (it doesn't say anything like "new Switch).

That's good, especially since a lot of stores have their consoles behind glass cases where you couldn't easily check serial numbers.

For what its worth guys, they sent me the new console, they actually took my old serial number off my old unit and replenished/refreshed the unit in the system as the “same one” even though its clearly not, the serial number was on the plastic off of my console lol

I was like come on, at least use some new adhesive if your going to replace my old serial....it wasnt even on! Like literally , they had it off, maybe to show me its the new one?

Are any of the Resident Evil games gyro aiming enhanced? The Wii version was so good I can't go back to stick aiming

If I remember correctly, the Revelations games both have it; 4 does not. No clue about 5 and 6.

They would not have sent you the new extended battery life version weeks before the FCC approved it. You may have received a new console, but it isn’t the new revision with the new processor and extended battery life.

It is, sorry
Why the hell would I make a post and then LIE about it all
The kickstand is WAY different, the JOY CONS are SO different that CAMPERINABUSH saw it, and the battery life is indeed extended
I couldn’t attest about the processor but if thats what your upset about...sorry dude, I GOT THE NEW VERSION, the kickstand and battery life are proof alone
Why wouldn’t they send it? Why not if they sent a new console without saying anything until I after I questioned the serial number?

The truth is the truth....i am not a liar

So Nintendo violated the FCC rules, sold a device prior to it being approved. To someone in the us prior to it even being released in Japan.

Yeah, quit while you are behind.

 

https://www.fcc.gov/...t-authorization

 

READ it.

 

You are saying Nintendo KNOWINGLY is violating federal law and gave you some special unauthorized device that at the time did not adhere to the FCC filing on hand. Bad PR for Nintendo, and they are not stupid... They would not send a new unlisted device into the wild.

(I'm Licensed with the FCC, and deal with them from time to time.)

 

 

Edit: Nintendo CAN have "Test" devices in the US operating prior to formal approval, but usage is strict. Giving one to a consumer?... not legal in any way. 

 

Go ahead, post the screenshot of your serial number from the settings page, black out the last few numbers.

And just FYI, Nintendo releasing the updated Switch, under old serial numbers and model numbers... bigger violation than what you are claiming. That would mean Nintendo is purposely trying to go around the FCC.

This is the last thing I’ll stay on this
YES, they must’ve violated your interpretation of FCC rules

Who said they sold me anything? I had a broken console from 2017....they sent me a replacement, why wouldn’t they send the new version they knew wont fail?

Who said anything about sell? GET IT, it wasnt a transaction

And yes, if they violated FCC rules by selling defective merchandise knowingly, they already did it, however many times you want to count

So yes, my kickstand and joy cons are CONFIRMED different....ask who i told you, he saw the pics

Again, last time ill say it, i started the thread BECAUSE i got the new shit, and not to brag about how Nintendo did an FCC reach around JUST FOR ME..ooooooooooo

Stop being jealous, and realize, the new consoles are real, the new joy cons are real, and you heard it here first, as usual

If youre one of the jealous haters wishing to “upgrade” to a barely noticeable switch...::points and laughs:: “HA HA” - Simpson’s character

If you dont want to thank me for my help, then i simply wont post it....thanks for making life easier
Take it easy haters

And your welcome to the people who thanked legit

Dang. I am tempted to grab some, but I just don't know any games coming out that are more worthwhile to have digitally. Pokemon I usually play through once and trade in, and Astral Chain is a bit of a gamble to commit to digitally.

So.. I’ve seen a few pre-orders for games drop to $49.94 on Amazon today (at least noticed them today)
Dragon Quest XI physical
https://www.amazon.c...on quest&sr=8-1

Was planning to get this digital with the voucher, now I may just go physical.

You can barely see the ridges on the L and R but they are there msg-544981-0-18028700-1562981632.jpg i tried to get it on an oblique angel to see it but its very subtle, only really you can feel it by touch...try looking hard enough and you will see the ridges
