    Nintendo said the Switch wouldn't be a replacement for the WiiU but everyone knew it would ultimately be, and this is more to that evidence.

    RIP WiiU 2012-2017.

    I choose my style of play on my Wii U. >:L
    I still use my Wii U on a daily basis, I haven't regretted purchasing it at all.

    I will give the Switch some time on the market, and then I might consider buying depending on what it brings and if it gets homebrew soon enough :P

    GOOD lol......

    Its sad that the Wii U is RIP
    But Nintendo needed to make this move on there site.
    They need no confusion about what the switch is or what they are offering. I like how things are setup on there site. I dont care to much about the 2ds being up there. But i see why it is its cheaper then the 3ds.



    And fyi your title is backwards Wii u with the switch. Not switch with wii u

    Sorry you feel that way.
    But i think the switch is going to be great.
    And nothing is wrong with the price. Its in line with everything else.
    The 3ds was how much at launch?
    Ps vita?
    Ps4?
    Xbox 1?
    I would say the switch is priced just right. Yea including a game or dropping the price $50 would of been nice. But i still believe it is priced correctly for what you get.

    It's like the Wii U never existed at all... at all... at all...

    Ya know, that's a kinda cool slogan for the console. "Tired of your PsBox? Switch to the Switch!"
    We just need to sell it to Nintendo, and we'll swim in the dough! $$$

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I am glad I didn't buy Wii U in the first place. Yeah, first party is good but I am into first party and 3rd party. Without 3rd party was the reason why we didn't bought Wii U at all. No regret here. Maybe a used Wii U at Pawn suits us just fine for cheap cost. :D

    The switch's price isn't the real problem, it's that the Wii U didn't even see a single system price drop during its entire life cycle, and that's why we feel ripped off. Especially me, I bought my Wii U just April of 2015 after hearing about Splatoon.

    I guess my mindset was something like "Well Nintendo has a new president that has promised to focus on getting software out to us, so I guess I'll invest in their new system. Maybe it just had a slow start like the 3DS."

    Man, I was wrong. I don't feel bad for pirating their games now.

    i hope it succeeds but i have little hope for it i called the wiiu as DOA too
    this looks to be even worse than the wii u , the launch is a disaster
    not even a single game available at launch, except one port you can already play for free on their last gen system, which i will be doing
    not even any games besides mario i am excited about for the forseeable future, and that is nearly a year away
    Nintendo is way out of touch and repeating the same mistakes they made with the wii u
    70 for a pro controller, and $50 for 1 joycon is also overpriced ,so is $90 for the dock ,
    and what happened to "VR ready" i know it was a rumor but it was a credible one, i figured they would give it a 1080p screen , make it only run in 720 in portable mode but have it be able to run at 1080 when plugged in to AC like when in a VR headset google daydream like adapter which would have to have external power or on the dock, now there is no hope for that either with a 720 screen unless they plan on releasing another tablet portion and i could totally see them doing that since the console is so modular and if you add up the prices of all the over priced accessories , $80 for 2 joycons, $90 for the dock $30 for the center controller piece
    that is $200 so -300 they are valuing the main tablet unit at only $100
    it doesn't even make sense ,
    but since the main unit is only valued at $100 i could see them making another one that is "VR ready" with a better res screen and selling it for like $150 , maybe enhanced specs too like N3ds, and then of course you will still have to buy the VR adapter google daydream like device
    Nintendo is sneaky and greedy like this and i simply do not trust them i got burned with the 3ds and N3ds bought both , the 1st i had to upgrade and the N3ds had no exclusives for it except one

    it is obvious they are overcharging for the dock joycons and pro controller
    and then trying to charge for online on top of it and to add insult to injury they are actually trying to sell you a stupid piece of demo software like 1,2 switch for $50 fucking bucks! holy shit just when you thought Nintendo could not get more greedy
    this "game" should have come preloaded for free like face raider or AR card game on the 3ds,
    3DS gave you 2 demo games for free to show off their stupid gimmicks , now they are giving you nothing and expecting you to pay $50 for a piece of demo software that should have been free, they must be high

    they should have priced it at $250 with mario as a pack in and had that 1,2 switch as a free preload

    they actually launched a system with ZERO games ZERO real games or exclusive games (BOTW you can get on the wii U) after the disastrous WII U fiasco
    they just carry on like the wiiu failure never even happened and then they double down on their mistakes and further abuse their customers the whole thing is just one big fuck you give us your money this is another cash grab to their fans/customers it is frankly extremely insulting

    Joycons arent that over price.
    $80 for a pair is only $20 more the a ps4 controller and the joycon pair does more then the ps4.
    So one joycon is still cheaper then a $60 ps4 controller.

    The dock is included with the system so why is that even a problem?
    If you move it to another tv then move the dock as you would a ps or xbox.

    And there paten has talk about a VR using the switch as a screen and a headset like the gear vr. Which is probably why there is no talk about it. They probably going to scrap that which would be a good idea to stay on point.

    And yea there is no demo game with the system. But they never Force you to buy the over priced 1-2 switch.

    But i guess each to there own.
    I see the system as priced correctly.
    And believe good games will come.

    This is an updated list of games to come:

    [​IMG]

    Putting the quantity aside, it doesn't look too interesting, imo.

    The games I'll either be getting pre-ordered or will wait for price drops:

    March 3:
    - Zelda (pre-ordered with an Amazon discount + Amazon voucher I was given)
    - Bomberman (price drop)

    March 31st:
    - Has Been Heroes (the price at GameStop US seems pretty decent so when it goes live on Amazon UK / other European retailers for a similar value I'll reserve one)

    April 28th:
    - Mario Kart 8: Deluxe (pre-ordered due to an Amazon discount which made it cheaper)

    May 2nd:
    - PuyoPuyo Tetris (price drop)

    Spring:
    - Sonic Mania (hope it receives a physical release)
    - Disgaea 5 (price drop)
    - Redout (price drop)

    Christmas:
    - Mario Odyssey (will pre-order when the price drops down a bit)
    - Project Sonic 2017 (pre-order if it's not overpriced)

    2017 TBA:
    - Yooka-Laylee (the price should be similar to PS4's so I'll pre-order certainly)
    - Metal Slug 3 (depends on the price)
    - Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 (if there's any Nintendoness content I'll consider)

    2018 TBA:
    - Fire Emblem (a must pre-order!)
    - No More Heroes (depends on the price)

    TBA:
    - Pokémon (a must pre-order!)
    - Shin Megami Tensei (another must!)

    EA should try to bring Battlefield 1 to the Switch but it's probably too much for the system to handle. I'd love to see such a great fps on the Nintendo Switch.

    Btw, I won't be getting Splatoon 2 'cause of the pay to play subscription and I wasn't that big of a fan of the original while admittedly it was fun.

    Nintendo made Splatoon 2 look very online focused so they'll likely throw in a Single Player and Local Co-Op just to tick the boxes.

    Very same. It's a shame to see it go, but they have to move onto other things I guess
