    I had the money and opportunity to buy a Switch on release but with it's abismal launch title setup made me choose to not go for it. I personally will get one during the holidays with Skyrim, Splatoon and Mario.

    What made you buy/ not buy a Switch?
    I am really interested in other people's perspective.

    Comments and inquiries are appreciated.

    Pretty much the same situation here. I had a preorder on Amazon, but cancelled it less than a week before launch. I may get one when Super Mario Odyssey releases, but perhaps even later than that.

    Gonna get mine a month ago.

    Launch titles were meh.. And the hardware problems were interesting. Don't regret the purchase one bit.

    Sounds like you regret not buying a switch and since you can't even find one now you want a taste of what it's like to own one.

    I don't even know how you would get behind that assumption, but good for you. You keep on enjoying that thing and I will be joining you in a couple of months. When the Switch gets released as a bundle anyway.

    A game
    I'm broken.

    I will probably get one when the next Nintendo console comes out. I can save USD $10 a month, and the console costs USD $480 in my country, plus USD $80 per game.

    Zelda was not enough to make me get it, mainline Pokemon has gotten stale to me, so probably never.

    Why do people want it bundled? It's always the same price as getting the damn console and game separate, and unless you are getting a custom skin or something, like the GoW4 Ultimate Limited Edition for example, what's the point?
    Somebody enlighten me...

    When Nintendo shows me the Switch isn't a $300 dollar port of the Wii U.

    Most probably for Xmas, when I might offer it as gift with Mario Odyssey to my kid.

    For now, there isn't enough titles I'm interested in to buy it.

    I will get one in a year or two, when there are more games for it. The current 2017 lineup is meh af.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    We can buy it right now but we don't want to. The games are not enough except Zelda which is my favourite. We will wait this fall and if there is no 3rd party supporting FULLY then forget it. Wait until E3 this summer before we know for sure. :)

    I bought one on launch because I knew I was going to have one eventually anyways, so why not now? I am also an avid console collector so, just made sense for me to grab and own one immediately.

    Super Mario Odyssey is the earliest I'll get mine, and even then I might wait longer.

    Trying to finish my 3DS backlog first, but I may buy one when Mario Odyssey or if a limited edition comes out.
