    It's neat. But I feel it's just a repeat of the Wii

    I think it's pretty darn cool, I don't see the problem everyone has with it.

    Yes, it might not have some games like Smash or some others on it, but I really wasn't expecting another smash game so soon after they stopped adding content.

    I will definitely be buying it when I have the money. I think the new games look cool as hell and loads of fun. The two player and on the go at the same time is pretty cool, but first i'd need some friends to play with.

    I wouldn't call it incredible, I was underwhelmed by some parts and pleasantly surprised by others. I still pre-ordered though, mostly because I had tons of Amazon credit leftover from Christmas that wasn't going to go to anything else.

    Pricing -> it's depend,like I always think,a game shouldn't be payed 60-70$... Will see....

    Considering having it.... Well........... Payed online.... I think it's my answer for now (will probably buy it but I will always be disapointed :().

    Hardware -> welp I just want to know what's the ARM processor type of it to get my hand on the ASM. Otherwise,I don't check a console pwer generally,mostly game type and other.

    Let's just hack it... No need for anything else, just the console. (If game exploits are not needed...)

    More easier said than done. It might take years for a exploit. Hell just think about how long it took for Wii U hacking.

    I am perfectly fine with paying 30 cad a year considering xbox live's pricing, anywhere above that is going to kill the switch. How much is online anyway?

    NO ONE was interested about the wiiu... The switch will probably get more popularity (hopefully?).

    I know it is not that easy. Just saying if it comes out. I'm not THAT stupid.

    Considering how much Xbox one's security chip is giving everyone trouble.

    Voted for the first option.

    I really like what I'm seeing, except for pay to play online subscription I'll just play single player games then.

    You might not

    But it's an example of a console that is really hard to crack, like it or not.

    All the games look like they were made in Unity, might buy it if the list of new games gets better. Definitely don't a launch purchase

    I saw Splatoon 2 and I want that. The rest of the games look great and all, but I need more Inkling waifus in my life.

    Still need a WiiU before you can't buy one anymore. The difference in architecture more or less proves the switch won't even try to handle WiiU or Wii games.

    $70 for a pro controller and $80 for the replacement joycon controllers is insane. $300 is insane for the system when you consider it has a nonremovable battery in the main unit. It was easier to swallow the awful battery life of the WiiU tablet because it could be replaced, and there are options for a battery with a better capacity. No such fortune here.

    HDMI only means I will also need to wait and invest in a capture card that can handle these fast enough for competitive level play; not so much because I intend to play online, but a fair number of games I care about can indeed be affected with any kind of processing or input lag.

    Don't care for Zelda, and never will. So it's not a launch thing for me, even though it's launching right before my birthday. No more heroes 3 is practically a must. Super Mario Odyssey is the first new Mario game in a while, that has me interested enough to want to play.
