    I only have enough to buy a Switch and I really want the new Zelda game, as almost everyone has given it perfect 10s and I was wondering, will it be nearly impossible to find it in stores if I wait a little longer? I don't want to download it because that would take up a lot of space on the Switch's SD card. What do I do? My birthday is in April.

    I think it's already impossible to get it. If you wait, it might be available after a few weeks.

    So, it won't be the same crap that it was with the NES Classic?

    I think NES Classic started slow but became big after a while. Switch and BoTW started big and will become "slow" after some time, cuz everyone'll already have got their hands on one.

    Wait, you speak about the physical game being unobtainable? Why would that ever be the case?
    The Switch itself, maybe, yes - but the game should be everywhere.

    Not if you wait for the hype to go down. The launch Switch has already been confirmed to have problems. So really it's going to be best to wait it out, or buy the Wii U version.

    Aside from the left joy-con being unresponsive what other issues are there possibly?

    Btw, I like your new profile pic.

    Well, my Switch and Zelda are currently on their way in one package with UPS for morning delivery before noon. Also two other preorders at local stores open as a failsafe, which could also be picked up tomorrow :lol:

    You can always import from Europe. Switch is region free.

    It's lost for all eternity. People will love the shit out of it and you'll never get the chance to play it.

    Just buy it used when somebody doesn't like it. Happens all the time.

    As far as I know, just that and lack of games at launch.
    And thank @Bubsy Bobcat for drawing it for me ^_^

    Used copies are going for almost or even more than the original retail price.

    I watched this video earlier which gives a gamers review of it and it's flaws. This guy if you don't know is the world record holder of games/consoles etc so his review I found quite interesting to watch.

    You've got a point. But a person who would want to get rid of the game would sell it lower than the original price, wouldn't they?

    Pikmin 3 jumped to over $100 used for awhile in 2015 prior to becoming a Nintendo Select. I dont think that will happen with BotW.
