    I have the money saved up, ready to buy the Switch and Zelda but this video make me wonder if I should buy it now or wait...


    Does this stuff really happen? Is the Switch really that buggy and glitchy?

    It's the minority, but what with the urge to get one anyway? There almost no games to play with and the only game worth of your time is on wii u.

    Wait a few months till more games come out, or wait for bundles or a price drop.

    Truly, this. If you have a WiiU and want the new Zelda? Just get it on there. I bought the Switch and don't regret it.. doesn't mean you won't face these issues.

    thats something that will happen to any product released. its a rare chance this will happen to you and if it does you can get it replaced. people just make a huge deal about this stuff happening to the switch because its nintendo.

    Not really. Not sure why you would even use your switch there.

    Damn, you gringos and your culture is weird.

    I really don't get this. People are pissed on Nintendo's devices for nothing? I really don't understand the passionate hate against their products. Just don't buy anything from them.

    mainly fanboys ofc. but nintendo is seen by a significant amount to be for children and those believing that ofc wont actually research games for the system. its just become very easy and common to bash on nintendo so they do. i bet half the people who bash nintendo and their fans dont even have a reason besides "its for kids" even though we clearly know its for all ages and its a pathetic excuse to say we cant play games we think are fun. im just rooting for the switch to pass up xbone in sales. if that manages to happen ill be glad to let xbox fanboys know about at it every opportunity :^ )

    I would say consoles generally are for kids. PCs on the otherhand is a different story since it's for everyone.
    But I haven't seen "hit" pieces on the Playstation and Xbox, atleast not as many. It just seem to be attacking Nintendo because they just can? Why do people want Nintendo to fail? Do they suddenly think their games would come to Playstation and Xbox because why? Hell they might just go PC if that is so.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    See this is what's pissing me of. It's dissuading people from buying the switch. I'm sure most of those are lies, or at least 99% in the minority. Mine has had ZERO of the issues suggested, and others have said the same.

    i disagree on the statement that consoles are for kids. its for everyone as there are plenty of great intense games on ps4 (gj porting games to pc xbox) but some ignorant people just want nintendo to fail so their console can win the "master race"

    i wouldnt really say ur bashing but presenting your opinion. i know youre not being idiotic and hating for no reason like fanboys of other consoles or pc

    Ofcourse, I should specify more that it's aim towards a younger audience in the first hand (teenagers) and adults second.
