The switch would have been a good price... if it came out in 2013.
But we're in 2017 now. The PS4 and Xbox one can often be found for under $300 with one or two triple A games attached. They offer stronger hardware and boast an already massive library while having infinitely better third party relationships down the line. Given all of that info, the switch is overpriced
I can't play Xbox or Playstation on an airplane. I can't play Nintendo games on an Xbox or a Playstation.
Xbox and Playstation don't stress lcoal multiplayer. Switch has 3 good looking local multiplayer games coming around launch.
They're different products. If a household wants to play the latest Call of Duty or Assassins' Creed, they should look elsewhere. It's been this way for over a decade with Nintendo.
Uhhh actually you can play PlayStation games on an airplane. The vita does still exist.
No they don't stress local multiplayer, but because they have so many games, you can always find local multiplayer options. Call of Duty, FIFA, rocket league, so on. On the flip side, because of the power of the console and just straight up poor 3rd party relations, the switch is missing out on many good single player and online multiplayer games (mass effect andromeda, final fantasy XV, GTA V, For honor, Destiny, titanfall 2, so on). you can't even claim that Nintendo has the better first party anymore. Sony already has an established library (bloodborne, horizon, uncharted 4,...) and will be releasing killer hits later (the last of us 2, god of war, Spider-Man,...).
I'm not even trying to start a list wars here. I'm pointing out the HUGE head start the Xbox one and PS4 have while showing their future prospects. Keep in mind the PS4 and Xbox one will also be cheaper than the switch.
its also funny you mention local multiplayer, because at least 1 extra set of joycons is $70 (more than the dual shock or the Xbox controller) so I can't imagine buying 3 extra sets, a game, and a switch (around $570) comparing it to a PS4 bundled with GTA V (around $300) and saying the switch has more value because of "local multiplayer for 3 games"
The only true advantage is the mobile factor, but if that's the case buying a 3DS (they'll still exist) is a substantially better option if you need to go mobile. Other wise a PS4/Xbox one provide more value. You're free to also claim "Nintendo is unique and has they're own home console magic," just as I'm free to point you to the Wii U.
