I'm not too stoked on the games coming out for it, will keep my eyes open though.

I really wanna play Breath of the Wild, so even though I told myself I wasn't buying another console I may break down and get one.

There's always the WiiU version.

Yeah, but I don't have one of those, and I dont want to buy one just in time for the last Nintendo title on the platform. Plus it's not going to be as HD.

Woot! Start a thread with your unbox/setup/system update experience.

No money, saving to build a PC. Might get Zelda on Wii U. Waiting until Splatoon 2 until I get a Switch, and I am not paying more than MSRP for the Switch.

Yeah. The scalper situation is going to escalate quickly. I'll bet there's already a few on eBay for $500 by now.

I checked eBay already and it is going for around the price you say.

Ain't no way Nintendo is getting any more of my money. If switch gets good CFW I might pick up a used one eventually.

Oh man, I completely forgot about the homebrew potential. A good CFW could make tablet mode really fun, especially with the right emulators. Maybe get Quake and Doom running on the thing.

While you wait to see what develops Switch-wise, 3DS has been cracked wide open for piracy and homebrew both. Arm9LoaderHax even makes it so firmware updates can't bork your crack.

I'm skipping the Switch for now.

A few reasons:

  1. Knowing Nintendo's track record, there's probably only going to be a handful of them in my area, so even if I got in line at some insane, worse-than-Black-Friday line, I still might be stuck in a situation where the store gets 6 units and I'm #10 in line.

  2. There's effectively just Zelda right now. I'm not a huge fan of 3D Zelda games (2D isometric Zelda's FTW) so basically there's nothing for me to play right now.

  3. Mario Kart is usually a system-seller for me. As an avid player of MK8 on the WiiU (with all the DLC), I'm not too keen on buying MK8 all over again.

  4. I'm not a fan of 3D Mario games, so unless a "New Super Mario Bros Switch" or a "Super Mario Maker Switch" gets announced, I'm kind of blah on the Mario front.
