Based on what your getting with the Switch, $700 ish, is just way to much in Canada. If you take the fact that you could buy a Wii U bundle, and a 3DS bundle, and end up at basically the same end price, it makes the Switch look like a horrible deal.
Comparing it to what you get from XB1 or PS4, for much less, really really makes Switch look expensive here. As long as the 3DS sticks around, or has a new cheaper successor (not Switch), it will be where the large majority of NiN sales go, in Canada anyway, and Switch will just sit on shelves like the Wii U did. All my friends with young kids, have said they would pay $199 tops for Switch. They have said since that won't happen anytime soon, the kids will be getting 3DS. (These friends aren't to poor to afford it either)
The only thing Switch has going for it, is the fact its an "all in one gaming device". Well if that device still costs the same as two separate devices, so what? Now if NiN comes out with a super cheap VR headset, that uses the Switch screen and joy cons, then yes, the high price starts to make sense, for those interested in VR anyway.
Everyone I know here in Canada has a Wii, and its because it was cheap, that's it. The motion controls gimmick is what caused people to tell others "hey you have to try this" and because it was so cheap they easily bought in. You will not get that with Switch when they see the high price tag.
If NiN wants meaningful sales in the west, they are going to have to at the very least, launch a NiN version of the Shield console. That will get them somewhere. If they really want to make an impact here, they are going to have to compete with Pro and Scorpio. They mentioned years ago that they were not sure if one form factor would be enough for NX, so maybe just maybe, that dedicated home console may come to fruition eventually.
If NiN has decided to forget about powerful home consoles for good, they better hope PS and MS don't decide to build new powerful, yet cheap handhelds based on cartridges. If they can do that, and somehow tie them directly into the PS4 and XB1 ecosystem, its going to make things even harder for Switch, and may leave NiN stuck with handhelds as their only hardware. Unless they finally decide to get serious and compete.
