    Haters gonna hate boy, no matter how ridiculous the excuse to do so, it is. Even at an Ad disguised as a "console bundle". Just grab some popcorn and enjoy

    Worst bundle Nintendo has made
    They take a free to play game & don't even bother to skin or change the color of the the dock or joy cons.

    LAZY

    Well, in that case wouldnt it be better to blame the way the industry have become in the last decade instead of hating a free game that has nothing to do with that?

    Exactly. The nintendo siwtch online subscription is a real problem that should make people angry about, but yet here we are, arguin about a bundle.

    Are we going to start this again? There is an official thread there if you want to illuminate yourself on why the service is mediocre at best.

    you did
    then why bring it up here
    im . . .sorry? . . . did i say it was an amazing service? no i did not. but it is indeed a service and as such should have a cost and 20usd a year is pretty fitting so. . .

    Excuse me, Fortnite is an abomination to the gaming community and to gamers everywhere. No self-respecting geek would touch Fortnite with a ten-foot pole, and the fact that Nintendo is bundling this sad sack of a game with its console only goes to show how far they've fallen and how desperate they've become. Unacceptable. None of my money is reaching Nintendo's pockets, from here on out. This bundle is an affront to all of my sensibilities.

    cough

    Yeah, it's stupid. Somewhat surprised that Nintendo chose to bundle a third-party game with the Switch, but it's nothing Microsoft and Sony haven't done several times already.

    More poison, don't eat it.

    Honestly though:
    -this f2p poison crate loot box bundle
    -Recycled WiiU games
    -Ports from 2011 still tbreleased
    -Paid online, gotta jump through a hoop and pay to play their incredibly small library of games, I'm not trusting tendo with any banking details and also not walking to the store to buy the code.
    -Wth Nintendo, they've really trashed my memories in a way and lost the wholesome brand

    They should of marketed the "free online" aspect of the system and they would have a lot more people and devs in their corner

    Effort free marketing decision.
    Parents know Nintendo and they know Fornite, and plus the Switch is the cheapest system on the market. It's obvious that this is what a ton of children are getting for Christmas this year...

    ...and sadly it's not Metroid Prime IV, which I'd probably rather be playing. ;)

    Don't jinx us.


    A Nintendo only skin would be pretty cool. Hell, they gave the new galaxy a one of a kind skin. Albeit some people were abusing demo models but that's neither here nor there.


    That's most likely going to be the case. Fortnite it "The Game" right now. Regardless of what some folks think of it, that's fact. The artwork on the box stands out, so it's easily recognize. 1000 vbucks is the equivalent of like $10.00 If the price is no different than that of a basic Switch. A person who's been thinking of getting a switch and plays Fortnite may very well pick this up. Then use those vbucks to buy the season pass. Finally you get some free "items" whatever those are. Like the quote b4 you, a custom skin would be nice.
    Honestly it's not a bad deal. Is it a bundle in the traditional sense? Probably not. Still, a bundle regardless.

    A brand new switch costs 300 usd. A brand new ps4 fat model costs 250 usd.

    uh?

    Wait.. they didn't bother to pimp-up the Switch and/or joy-cons by giving it a Fortnite-esque skin/theme?
