ok, I'm past my emotional reaction and have a more level-headed approach to switch. I'm back to buying two at launch (I should have no issues at my local Walmart, they are slower but still get good stock).
I am still irritated at a lower-than-expected launch line-up. Though its not horrible and Zelda alone will keep my interest for quite sometime.
I am still irritated at the pricing for console considering no pack-in, though its a really good looking piece of hardware. Hell I spend over $500 on a damn phone that I only use for two-years. But, this is still a bit much and I think they won't have the room to drop the price early as they did with 3DS. Granted, since then 3DS has remained at $200 realistically consider XL is the popular version then $300 for NS isn't a shocker.
I still want to know about VC. I've maintained that they can't force us to buy the games for a 3rd time, even at a discount. They had to have built a proper VC backbone this time that requires no effort on their part to put it on Switch. At least no significant effort beyond a tweak to the central emulation system.
Lastly, the online system is purely craptastic. The only thing for me on this is that I don't play online much at all anymore and the games my kids play online are all on Xbox, which is where they'll remain for the foreseeable future.
In the end, I know this will be a good console over time, but I do think they made some poor decisions that will keep this from being a 50MM+ seller.
The initial price shock will dissipate the more you realize that this is the only Nintendo hardware you need to play all Nintendo games. And at the same time you'll see the influx of third party support that the 3DS enjoyed which rounds out the library.
I was hoping for more action/adventure, pikmin, etc. Though I'm sold on Zelda, bomberman and have a eye on a couple others as well as the prospect of more VC and indie content.
Of course everyone has their own favorite flavors and honestly WiiU hit it at launch better (in terms of quantity) than NS. Granted, Zelda looks to easily be best launch title ever.

vivster said: Why would I read an article if you already took the effort and posted the best bits in the thread? Most people in this forum don't even read the OP, let alone click on links. Why would you expect anyone to read the full article? Talk about being naive. Good point, I can't argue that. You win this round....

Nuvendil said: So that Foxconn leak floating around is sounding fairly true. But this all raises a question in my mind: how do you guys thinik developers are going to approach this? I mean, there are three routes to take: 1) make the absolute best undocked version that runs perfectly and looks as good as possible and then when docked just up the resolution and add some...
