    my dad works for nintendo.
    so when will you buy the nintendo switch?
    if your answer is not on the poll, just write it down..
    i didn't put "i will not buy the switch" options because i am only interested to know when people decide to buy the new consoles nowadays.

    Can you add an option that says:
    "I'll wait until there is hints at it being hacked" :P

    Underground, in my mother's basement.
    I will buy it when I get money.

    I will support Nintendo no matter what, they can have everything I own.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    done
    i thought about that one but i thought the usual drill, people who buy it early and don't update will very likely get the hax with no issue
    buy it later and there is a change of the firmware being too high for the exploit

    i remember the old days of the psp, the 1.00 firmware was hacked very early, then 1.50, next exploits took a longer time.. so, the people who want hacks, should buy it early as possible

    When it has more games than the Wii U.
    (So, you mean you will buy it at launch? /s)

    I'm tired of funding Nintendo failures.
    First show me it is not yet another flop, then I buy.

    I'll be getting it on day 1, because I'm a sheep. But honestly, I am not hyped like others. Just wasn't that impressed with the idea Nintendo went with.

    Day one. I want to play my zelda game. Plus the girlfriend's kid will want to play. And it's easier to keep it on super low firmware when you buy day one.

    Nintendo have a lot to prove to me after the Wii and Wii U. The fact they haven't even announced any games other than Zelda for the system and said they have no plans to this year makes me worry.

    I think it's a great looking console. But it has no D pad and the portable mode seems to have a very significant frame rate problem. My general feeling with nintendo is that the next version of their portables is the way to go.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    they praticall announced skyrim port... and mario game in the announcement video
    but you know... if the ps3 version is broken as hell, the pc also has loasd of bugs that are fixed with fan patches... i will not expect that much on the switch (btw, nintendo swift is a totally better name! you swiftly change from tablet to home console, maybe cuz switching it's not swift :C )

    tell your dad to buy me one as well :wub::wub:

    This article http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/10/nintendo-switch-trailer-may-not-show-actual-game-footage/ suggests all of that "game play" footage may have been added in in post processing. I wouldn't make any inferences about mobile fps just yet.

    The next Lunar eclipse after NS launch is August 7th 2017 (But it won't be viewable from North America). The next total Solar eclipse in the US will occur August 21st 2017 - two weeks later.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    cuz dad believes in the old chinese saying "by giving a wii u for free after being such a failure can instantly killing the whole company"
    my dad says if he gives me 1, that console is not sold and can ruin nintendo :(
