Nintendo Switch sales are an hot topic these days, with the hybrid handheld/home console launching tomorrow worldwide at a price tag of $/€ 299 and £ 279.
There might not be a name as synonymous with video games than Nintendo.
Nintendo has shipped preview consoles around the world and its review embargo lifted overnight, meaning the first write-ups are in.
There's a lot of excitement in the air for tonight's launch of the Nintendo Switch - but just how successful will it be this year? Let us know in the comments, hopefully with good reasons why or why not.
"Its games offer an intimate form of gameplay unseen on rival consoles, and over all the system's versatility makes it worth the money". So, if you haven't yet ordered your Switch, you can still have a chance at ToysRus.More news: Rare Disease Day: Here's Everything You Have To Know
Prior to the update, it was unclear, yet nearly expected, that Nintendo would drop the antiquated system in favour of something more akin to the way you befriend others on Xbox One, or PlayStation 4. But they also make sure to mention that the console feels very unfinished.
The Nintendo Switch release date is nearly here, but most of the Stock at various retailers around the globe is already finished. It goes on sale on Friday.
ALTANO: "I was initially anxious that the Switch would feel like a bulkier, more unwieldy iPad or 3DS". That's especially true if you want bonus credit for trading in a Wii U, 3DS or any game. It's really elegant, lean and awesome. Nintendo systems have always had a large following with younger children after all. The big fear, obviously, is battery life. Minor technical problems aside, this is one of gaming's greatest and most storied series returning with something we've never seen before. The more cables and plugs I need to lug around, the less likely I am to even bring a Switch with me. There is a headphone jack on the top of the system itself, but there isn't a jack on the Joy-Con controller.
Concerns have been raised over the console's tiny 32GB internal memory for those who prefer to download their games. The Joy-Cons are classically weird Nintendo, and I mean that in the best way possible.
