I wish I had an extra $230 to throw at a random item.

 

You guys are ballers.

Don't waste any more brain power on it, we don't want you straining yourself.

Yeah, I'm the simpleton for not dropping $229 on potential bullshit.

Obviously it's a dildo that vibrates to your favorite music along with a $50 Target Gift Card.

According to the Priority mail box my Switch shipped in, it also weighs 4 pounds.

Just curious, if it really is a switch for $230, is that a decent deal for a plain one, and with no warranty?

Nope.  I think FB had Switches around that price during BF and I got mine for around $260 with an ebay coupon.  

Definitely not an insane deal to be buying stuff blind or even bragging about it, but people like to gamble.  I hope these degenerates at least get their fix from this.

If it does turn out to be a Switch I won't be unhappy that I missed out, there's rumors they're making a smaller, cheaper model soon to fill the role of the outgoing 3DS.

If it is a Switch and was $179 (cheapest price during BF) I could understand gambling.. but $230 + tax doesn't seem worth it. Why pay more for a gamble when you could have gotten it cheaper without the mystery in November? I would just pay a bit more and get it elsewhere or wait for the new model it I didn't own a switch.

Chances are, if you're the type to gamble $230 on this, you'll probably do it again in the future and take a loss eventually

That would be an awesome product. Not worth $229 though

People can't magically time travel back to November and get in on that deal in February, not sure if you realize that

The DeLorean in my driveway begs to differ.  Or it would, if there wasn't a phone booth through the engine block.

Thats not the point. I'm saying the deal isn't good enough to be gambling on

Agreed. Even if I was guaranteed a switch at $230, I wouldn't do it.

Wasn't the $180 deal from dailysteals? That's not comparable to a retailer deal, but then again neither is this (regardless of what's in the box)

Take out the phone booth, stick some wires and pudding cups on the top, and climb inside it.
