    Talk about how much you paid for your switch, and what came with it.
    Example, here's mine:
    I got:
    The whole Switch retail enchilada
    Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Total cost: ~$160

    It's not bait. I ordered it off of Amazon, I just want to know what you people had to pay. I already have it, so it wasn't a scam.

    Clearly ordering off of Amazon is a new concept to some people.
    1. There was a listing under "Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy Con" for $150.
    2. I clicked "Add to Cart" on the listing. Yes, I trusted a Just Launched seller and they delivered.
    3. The thing shipped first day, and then arrived a few days later.
    4. I paid $5 for shipping and $5 for BoTW with shipping.
    Any other info: I have no idea.

    I have a question to some of the people here,

    are you retarded?

    If you trade in something, this does not make your Switch cheaper. You lose the value of the other stuff. Saying "I traded in 10 gaymz for da switch and only payde 50 dollors" doesn't equal having paid 50$ for the Switch.

    And to TO: Yeah, of course you got a Switch for 150$ and BOTW for 5$. Totally legit.

    My uncle work for Nintendo so he give me a neon one for free plus a copy of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So I guess... 0.00$?

    Calm down. You clearly don't understand some of those posts, do you? One supposedly is a troll with random numbers (BotW for -$40 seems like obvious sarcasm to me... I could be wrong, though, if there's a good explanation for that).
    Regarding other posts: The question is "How much did YOU pay for that Switch" and not "How much did it cost?"
    You could even take it more literally and ask which Switch is "that Switch".

    Okay, then let's do this.
    I paid 329€ for the Switch.

    But then, technically, I sold my WiiU with a bunchheck of crap last year for around 250.

    So I paid 79€ for the Switch. Logic happened!

    What a normal honest person would pay?
    Up to now:
    Switch: €329
    64GB uSD: €18
    Pro contr.: €70
    Zelda: €62
    Fast RMX: €20
    BMZ: €10
    Hori case: €17
    Disgaea 5 LE: €102
    ---------------------
    Total: €628

    Also potentially overmorrow, as I could end buying a game I have on Wii U again because I can't limit my consumerism: +€60
    It is just moneys, who the fuck cares.

    PS: I will keep using the damn word until it sticks to English again, Let's Make English Great Again!™
