The possibilities are there, far more than I ever saw with the Wii or even Wii U, but right now Zelda isn't enough to get me to splash ~$500 on a system, controller, and game. If the 3DS support comes to Switch I think 2018 could be a monster year for the system.

For now have so many games to catch up on my PSV and PS4.

That's a huge issue for me as well. I'm still suckling on the PS3 tit with Yakuza 5. And want to go back and restart FF XIII-2 some time down the road. The sheer volume of backlog reason, cancels out new system hype to a large degree. It's a good problem to have. And a nice way to measure consumer sanity. Given what has transpired in the last few days, the PS5 will be my next purchase. Being SO tied to the Sony ecosystem plays a role too. If the Switch didn't regress from the Vita in some ways, which it has, I would have bit. Nintendo REALLY need to ape the achievment/trophy system. It's such a no-brainer. There is no downside to it. Only positive. I doubt it happens tho. Because.....?????

Excited for a 199,- pure handheld revision if that doesn't happen I will switch away from nintendo after supporting them from the first console my dad bought me, the NES until my last purchase of the Wii-U which broke my faith and the switch hasn't changed that judging by the launch- price and lineup

Very excited.

It's basically a handheld PS3+. I rarely play online, so I'm not bothered by it.

My excitement is recovering by the day. Was crushed by the hardware price announcement and incoming paid online multiplayer which will make Switch an offline console, unless I can use My Nintendo gold coins to purchase individual months.

At the common asking price of €330, Switch is €80 more than I expected. Still, that's €270 lower than the previous generation.                                     

Or, better yet, silver. Hundred silver coins = online free for a week.

I don't really see anything good in an achievent system (other than VGChartz trophies, that is). Also the trophy systems seem flawed, as the achievements are made as the purpose of the game instead of playing them.

Ignore it then. I know people that feel the same as you. Some don't mind it. Some love it. You can disable it on your PSN profile if you want to. Not sure about Xbox tbh. It's addition is only a good thing. Attracting users, fostering online communities. It's not all positive. There will be more Johns in your neighborhood.

I'm trying to work that one out. So basically you have your pants off your body and then you drop one onto the pants? I didn't know people could get that excited.



I'm not hyped for the system itself but I am hyped for the games. Dont think I'll be able to get it day 1 tho.
