Introducing Nintendo Switch, the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers. PLAY ANYWHERE Home Gaming System At home the main unit rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. On-the-Go Lift Nintendo Switch from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode for on-the-go gaming. By sharing Joy-Con, players can go head-to-head while away from home. You can also enjoy the same great games in tabletop mode by using the included stand to prop the system up. New Play Styles Remove the detachable Joy-Con from either side of Nintendo Switch for more play styles: One player can use a Joy-Con in each hand Two players can each take one Multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options (additional Joy-Con sold separately) Slip a set of Joy-Con into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Bring together up to 8 Nintendo Switch systems for local face-to-face multiplayer.

All features work as advertised with no surprises. It switches between docked and undocked modes almost instantaneously.
The joy-con controllers are really good. Having two in the box means you can play multiplayer games on day one without having in invest in extra hardware.
The system itself feels sturdy and well constructed.
Nintendo first party games! (IE the reason you buy any Nintendo product). Mario is a blast, Zelda is mind blowing, Mario Kart is stupid fun. You know what you're going to get with Nintendo games.
The indie game support has been really impressive! Nintendo has seemed to focus on quality rather than quantity with its indie offers. From games such as Overcooked, Stardew Valley, Golf Story, The Sexy Brutale, you're going to be able to find games you enjoy at cheaper prices, and support developers who aren't EA.
The joy-cons are not as comfortable as other controllers for longer play sessions. The pro controller (an additional cost) is recommended if you plan on playing the Switch at home with games such as Breath of the Wild.
The Nintendo online features are somewhat lacking compared to Playstation, Xbox and PC gaming. Friends lists are a mess, you cannot send messages or game requests through the system. To send a friend request, you cannot search via name, but have to send through a 12 digit code to your friends via SMS or another messaging service. The friend system seems really archaic for a system released in 2017. Voice chat can currently only be done in one game (Splatoon), and is handled through a smart phone. That's right, you don't do voice chat through the system, but through your smart phone! For this privilege, Nintendo will be charging you $30AUD a year to access this service (despite discord being available on mobile for free).
So you'd think I would be a prime customer for the Switch, right? I mean sure, Nintendo hardware always has unique and strange quirks but I adopt or ignore them so that I can enjoy the games.
I never bought a Switch at release because I didn't want to only play Zelda, so I waited until Xmas 2018 to finally order one, once a Pokemon game was released.
And for me, it just hasn't clicked.
I love the idea of it being portable alongside being a living room console, but I feel like it does both roles poorly instead of just one being done really well.
In 'TV' mode, it's low res and slow. In portable mode, it's too big and it feels like it's going to break - the controllers on the side feel as if they could snap off if too much pressure was applied, and the joysticks and buttons are just far too small. This is really frustrating when combined with the positioning of the buttons almost directly underneath the analog stick, making it nearly impossible for me to tap them without the joystick getting in the way.
Maybe I'm not the target demographic (I don't have tiny hands)?
The other annoyance is that none of the retro library, nor online gaming functionality, is available unless you subscribe to the Switch's online service.
In the end, it's just not what I had expected - there are too many fundamental design issues for me, and the library isn't strong enough to warrant it's purchase. I can play nearly all of its non-bespoke library on much better (and more comfortable to use) hardware.
I'll be playing my 3DS until it dies one day in the future, but the Switch, for now, is being sold.
My advice: Try before you buy. Borrow a friend's or demo it in store, just to be sure you know what you're getting.
The Switch is super portable, playing either on a TV or like a gameboy of old. Coming from Xbox, the games are more fun and approachable to the family. Brining back the nostalgic days of getting everyone around the TV playing Mario Party (instead of something like Call of Duty).
Games can become quite expensive, but just have to keep an eye out for sales.
Really good price and fast delivery.
It reminds me of how fun it was to play on a SNES, before games became as demanding as a 2nd life, but with 720p/1080p 30 FPS graphics.
The current flood of Indies filling in the gaps in the eShop is also a great value added.
Well done Nintendo. Now if you just could keep the prices of download-only games in check a bit...

Some background: I am a CS student who has to live in the college dorm as mandated. Student life can be hectic with projects, assigments and stuff and there isn't much one can do in a dorm-room with mediocre wifi and a lot of a other minor restrictions of keeping something for entertainment. I used to feel bored a lot and really had nothing else to do here.
I then found out about Nintendo Switch and decided to do some research into it. I was really intrigured by it as it brought back childhood memories of having a PSP (a handheld console like this for those who do not know). Plus, the additional factor of it having "MARIO" games in itself was nostalgic enough. Thus, I took a leap of faith (considering this has no warranty in India) and bought it on a whim. I also bought a 256gig microSD card as I planned to go digital (who has space for loads of those cartridge boxes in a tiny dorm room anyways. Also, they get lost and scratched so...). The moment I held it and played my first game (Smash Bros Ultimate), I knew I made the right choice. IT IS JUST SO MUCH FUN! Props to Nintendo for making this amazing console and making awesome new versions of the old classics (Zelda BOTW and Super Mario Bros being a few)! Its a perfect pick-it-up-and-play console which isn't "serious" or distracting enough to distract me from my studies (it can be if you buy beautiful and engaging RPGs like Zelda and Xenoblade but I didn't haha).
The UI of this console also gets a lot of appreciation from me being a budding front-end developer myself. Its slick, fast and did I say awesome? It is to the point and keeps the gaming aspect of it to the front with a bold square boxed array of your downloaded/current cartridge's games being the main menu. I am in love with just every aspect of it!
TL;DR This is an awesome console for any age group and with the amount of games it has (and has coming) will surely keep you entertained for ages!
Some general tips for Indian buyers:
0. No warranty (but you already know that don't you?) but the build quality is reliable enough that you probably won't be needing it anytime soon.
1. Indian PayPal accounts work with this console so use that (haven't tested credit/debit cards but I hear Axis/ICICI work).
2. I encourage you to buy digital games as they give you virtual coin credits which can take a few bucks off your next game purchase. Also, they are a bit cheaper than physical copies due to no regional pricing for them (physical copies) in India.
3. The charger that comes in the box is a flat-pin 110-240V brick but can be used as-is if any ports of your house has the flat-pin connector.
I am a proud Playstation fan. PS4 pro is my console of choice. But something about the Nintendo switch made me want to try it out once. This company has a clear idea of what the gamers want. But switch is not yet available officially in India. So went ahead and made the purchase online (thanks to amazon). Bit skeptical though, since there is no warranty. But the seller stood upto my expectation. Packaging was good.
Loved the hybrid console right from the moment that i lay my hands on it. Stopped playing with PS4. And the game "Legend of zelda: Breath of the wild", now i realize what all the ruckus is about. What a wonderful adventure. We have to watch with glittering eyes the whole world in the game, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
My advise is to get the second gen console since it has a better battery life. Also try to get the USB bluetooth dongle by the name "8Bit do". You can find that in Amazon too. So that we can use any Bluetooth controller (PS4, Xbox one S...)
1) Switch tablet
2) 2 Joy cons (Got the neon blue & red version)
3) Joycon adapter
4) 2 Joycon straps
5) HDMI cable
6) Power cord (upto 220 v)
Purchased a 256 GB Micro sdxc card for extra storage. Since the available memory is a mere 32GB
Getting 3 hrs max batter life on hand held mode. But playing the most using docked mode on my 4K TV.
No eshop to purchase online games in India. Have to rely on Cardritges (Available in Amazon, CEX shop in phoenix, chennai). Thankfully, this console is not region locked. So we can indeed create a seperate account (US/ Japan), so that we can purchase games from that region. Haven't tried this one yet. If someone tries, kindly let me know.
**What else do i have for games: 4 pcs of 3ds new (2xl, 2 regular japan import), 2 pcs 3ds XL original, Xbox gears collectors edition, a powerful gaming and work PC, a retina 27 mac, an extra gaming pc, 65 inch hdr tv for consoles, Steam, tonnes of games on discs** But i hardly play :-D
For nintendo switch i have: orange/blue joycons, Odessey red joycons (rare) Odessey red grip (rarest of rare), pro controller, PowerA NSW Pro Controller Charging Dock, OOOUSE Carry Case, cartridge games, only 1 eshop game, i like physical copies.
Having played a lot and a lot of games from all platforms i bought the switch as a collectable, as i really love the new mario games. (super mario bros etc) but alas the 3d world from wii U is still not ported, the best game ever. I have it on CEMU as i cannot buy the wii U. (no stocks) The Super Mario Odyssey does charm, and is a great game. other games like zelda (now second one launched) and other franchises are also a lot of fun, though games that are on other platform have better graphics (Although not portable)
Now the switch it good as it is:
1. portable and dockable
2. handy and large enough
3. joycons are inventive
4. still uses physical cartridges
5. my beloved games are on there
6. if you are careful the switch will last a long time, not so with kids though (i just stored one piece for collecting)
but it could have been better:
1. fragile body, prone to breaking and cracking at places, be careful.
2. 3d world not ported
3. games are super expensive, comon, 4500 for a cartridge is a rip, pc games sell below 2000 for top titles
4. classic games and indies that are free, need paid nintendo membership
5. does not come free with any games
Do not even think you can play pirated games! The new consoles cannot do that, even old ones need homebrew etc. that is not easy even for techies like me. I plan to keep only legitimate games on it, so should you. make a budget as it will be expensive to fill it with games. you can wait for the new model, pro and the economy one if you like. buy when deals are running to get good discount. my seller was micromini and it was nicely packed and everything intact, i got at a very good price in sale. I ordered a game from them too, but it came different & was sorted by amazon.
From the perspective of someone who has invested several thousand dollars into a PC, this system has proved to me that you dont need a 1080TI and 144Hz to experience a beautifully smoothe and fun gaming experience. There switch will not out-perform even the most budget PC builds, but what it delivers flawlessly is fun factor. The versatility of the switch is one of my favourite aspects to its design and having the ability to "switch" from handheld to TV viewing is a feature I adore and would love to see available in future gaming consoles. In addition to this, the Co-Op/ Splitscreen functionality across most switch titles is an absolute hit with my friends & family. I found that the traditional $80 price tag for games does sting initally, however after considering that I usually spend $70-100 per game on PC which largely lack Co-op or splitscreen compatabilty, the $80 tag is much easier to justify.
Overall, I am 100% satisfied with my switch and would reccomend it to both casual and avid gamers, on PC and console.
O videogame é divertidíssimo e a sua versatilidade faz com que eu gaste muito mais tempo nele do que imaginei que gastaria. Tenho as manhãs e os finais de noite livres e sempre os passo jogando na TV na manhã e jogando deitado na minha cama à noite.
O único problema é o preço dos jogos, que sempre giram em torno de 200-300 reais, mas é o preço a se pagar por um produto importado que não é oficialmente vendido no Brasil. Comprei três juntos do videogame e pretendo permanecer só com eles por muito tempo, mas acredito que não passarei vontade por serem muito divertidos e extremamente longos.
A bateria do videogame no modo portátil é boa. Como só uso dessa forma à noite, posso colocar o brilho no mínimo, o que economiza bastante a bateria. Normalmente costumo jogar por até umas quatro horas até precisar carregá-lo, o que é mais do que o suficiente porque não jogo por tanto tempo seguido assim.
Quanto ao carregamento, ele costuma levar umas duas horas apenas quando conectado no adaptador para TV, o que é consideravelmente rápido. Também dá para carregá-lo diretamente na tomada, mas não cheguei a fazer isso e não sei dizer se o tempo de carregamento chega a ser reduzido.
Os controles tem uma vida de bateria excelente. É difícil eu usá-los soltos, mas quando o faço fico até mais de hora jogando e a bateria ainda continua constando como máxima, então dá pra ver que deve durar muito mais que o videogame em si e você não precisa se preocupar com isso (segundo o Google a bateria dos controles duram até 20h, o que um ótimo ponto positivo).
Em resumo, super recomendo a compra. O produto chegou rapidamente e em perfeitas condições, isso sem mencionar que ele é extremamente versátil, o que faz as jogatinas ficarem ainda mais divertidas.
Basically I play Indie games only.
Make sure you make account for South Africa and Russian eshop to get best deals. Since any region game works on Switch. Also check prices at esho.pw before you buy games. And it's good to always go for digital games since you get points which can be redeemed and physical games are known to get curupt.
I also purchased a 128gb class10 microsd card which is enough for everyone at start. Also buy a screen protector since the Original Nintendo Dock gets scratches on screen. Enjoy, happy gaming.
