Nice! Hopefully it does get better in the UK.
I assure you the switch is doing just fine in the UK, unlike the Wii U it has more vibe and a substantial number of people I know either had bought or intended to buy over the festive period. A guy sat next to me on a flight to the Middle east during the festive period played LoZ on his switch all through the flight (had me envious cos I took my 3DS along instead of my switch) although I took mine along for a trip earlier in the year and enjoyed playing FastRMX in portable mode while waiting for my flight.
It even has considerable presence in retail stores like Tesco that the WiiU never had. The UK is certainly still PS4/XBox land though (I am looking forward to that changing this year), it is taking some time for the Brick and mortar stores to yield to the demand for the switch and give it more visibility in their stores so I guess most people are forced to buy it online hence why the Amazon.co.uk bestseller list might be slightly skewed towards it.
