    Trying to buy it online is insane; even used.

    Good thing I got mine years ago.

    The whole idea that Switch has "too many ports" is ridiculous anyway, people here just need to accept the fact that WiiU was a failed system with virtually zero exposure to a mainstream audience. Even if everybody who owned a WiiU also bought a Switch, that would mean these games are considered ports by only 16% of Switch owners. For all intents and purposes, they're brand new, original Switch titles to the other 84% of owners. If we're being more realistic and assuming that some WiiU owners will not buy Switch, the split is probably closer to 10%/90%.

    The only good thing about the switch is it keeps its value versus the PS4/XB1. One the flip side it is more expensive to own a Switch versus owning a PS4/XB1

    Neither of these things will necessarily remain true in the long run, Switch has only been on the market for 3 years, versus about 8 years for PS4/XB1. What is certain is that Nintendo has managed to churn out more first-party exclusives than either of their competitors in less than half the time, so of course insisting on buying all of them, and buying them new, is going to get expensive quick.

    They have such a device, they've been working on it since launch.
    (When) Will they release it? No idea

    I expect sales to go crazy after the new Zelda game comes out.

    Excuse? Please tell me you're not one of these COVID hoaxers who think "it ain't no big deal ya'll". Look at what this pandemic has done to factory farming, specifically Tyson, and you'll learn why there's a shortage. At least for PR reasons, most companies don't want to expose their employees to death. Unless of course they're American.

    An impressive feat, considering the Switch is still out of stock for the summer. They better double production for the fall if they like money.

    It's been over a year since it was announced, with nothing shown up until now... I'm not getting my hopes up. If the game drops by spring of 2022, I'll be impressed.

    Impressive indeed.

    So do we know an estimated percentage of v1 RCM hackable switches?

    I suppose it's less than the original number of v1's sold, since Nin likes to replace the old motherboards whenever one is "repaired".

    Since the switch is red hot I guess Nintendo won’t kill it yet. We will need to wait for switch 2 for a while

    My local walmart always had switches in stock. the only time it was out of stock was at the beginning of the plandemic.

    Just checked a bunch of retailers in the UK. Doesn't seem to be a stock shortage anywhere here.

    I cannot believe the price of new switch is like twice of the recommended retail price. At this rate I will just buy it during the end of its life cycle.

    That's crazy to think about. Really shows how much Nintendo's changed from the Wii U era to now.
