Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Extra Dock $89.99!!!!! Switch Pro controller $69.99, Joycon set $79.99. Updated 2x!

I think price will be an issue. This is too expensive for kids, $360 with a game basically. 

Zelda fans will make sure the initial shipment sells out, but I think you could see a post launch lull especially in North America. Splatoon is not as big of a deal here (unfortunately).

thats what those droughts are there for xD



$300 Switch
- R joycon = $250
- L joycon = $200
- Dock = $110
- Grip = $80

$80 is a bargain. I just hope it can be used with Wii controllers.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

im pretty sure Splatoon has sold roughly the same in Japan and America

and i think having Mario Kart less than 2 months after launch will help keep sales going for a bit even though its an updated port.

I think honestly based on what they have ... they maybe should have just considered waiting until fall 2017 or August/September. 

They don't have the games, can't imagine how bad the library would've been if they launched last fall. Most of the third party stuff seems like it's not coming until fall (Skyrim, FIFA, NBA 2K, etc. etc.).

You only need one dock ppl

I would probably buy another. So I can play it on multiple TVs. Not a bad idea for me who doesn't always get to have full control of living room TV.



Do we know from Nintendo what the dock does? If it upscales, charges, has ethernet port then it might be worth getting. It would make it easier to play on your bedroom TV, living room TV, dining room TV etc. The concept is awesome as at the moment I'm having to unplug age carry my PS4 from the bedroom to the living room avid sometimes to the dining room.

However, if this is just a docking unit that has a PU and a chip to say run at full power, then it's a bit overpriced.



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

No ethernet port. You'll have to buy a separate usb-to-ethernet adapter for that.

So add another 30% for Canadians. No way I pay 100$ for a controller! The dock seems to be fairly priced, but everything else is way overkill.

How is that a fair price? Does it makes toast or sumthin?

Nvm. I've read more into it, and it is way overpriced.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Can someone please tell me what the $299 SKU comes with? Does it come with all the accesories?
