    Derp, I was just about to post a deal like this.

    Oh well. Don't need to type anymore.

  •  

    Thanks OP! Any thoughts on the microwave? Is it a buy what you pay for situation AKA dies in three months after blowing the fuse? :)

  •  

    I really sort of feel like Nintendo might have erred on the pricing of their Switch accessories; the add-ons seem like a massive gouge.

    •  

      Everything's expensive :/

        This is true, and yet Nintendo is still somewhat of an unknown quantity at this point, I think. Okay, so what I really mean is that if I was in charge of Nintendo at this point I'd have made the controllers a bit cheaper; okay a lot cheaper.

        I suppose my point isn't to complain, okay maybe a little bit, but more so to wonder if the higher cost is putting the consumer off of buying the Switch?

        •  

          Nintendo products prints money and they intend to keep it that way. Consoles don't sell for very much (low profit margin) so you gotta make the money from selling the add-ons.

          i'm sure some aspiring Chinese engineers will copy the design and come up with a knock off product that will perform just as well for half the price.

      Pretty happy to pay $80 for the pro controller, but yeah, $90 for 2 joy cons…. They should've just called em 'cons'.
      That said, it's $89 for an additional 2x controllers for Mario Kart. Arguably worth it for those of you with friends.

      • +4 votes

        Yeah I think it needs to be known that the joy con pair is actually 2 controllers. That is why they sell single joy con as well.

        • -1 vote

          I guess they are and they aren't. Like for a smash bros game, I doubt you could use a single joy con to play… and if you could, it'd probably be a pretty huge handicap, compared to using the Pro Controller….

        •  

          @ToastySteve: Luckily for you, there is no Smash Bros. have on the Switch.

          @ToastySteve:

          It'll be like with Brawl where some people played on the single Wiimote held sideways. Not for competitive players, but the casuals.

        • +2 votes

          @ToastySteve:
          Both Brawl and SSB4 played fine using just the Wiimote alone, and the Joy-Cons effectively gives each player 3 extra buttons for gameplay:

          Wiimotes: D-Pad + (B) + (1) + (2) buttons
          Joy-Cons: Stick + (A) + (B) + (X) + (Y) + (SL) + (SR) buttons

      •  

        Each joycon costs about $45 USD to manufacture and 90 USD is about 120 AUD. This means that they are actually selling the joycons at a potential loss to retailers. This is why i felt that HD Rumble is an unnecessary piece of garbage. Very few games will actually be able to use it well enough to justify everyone needing to pay for it and nintendo doesn't even get much from it. The switch would probably cost about 400 AUD if they didn't add their stupid HD Rumble.

          Oh? Do you have a source? $45 USD to make a single joy-con sounds like a lot to me.

          @Jawanzar:
          Same. It's kind of irrelevant though (although nice to know Nintendo isn't trying to screw us).
          We're only interested in whether it's worth our while paying $90 for a set.
          Guess we won't know until we start getting a few more games released.

        •  

          @ToastySteve: I think if they came with the joycon grip they'd definitely be worth it. Touch and go without it. With the grip you have a full second controller, without it you have 2/3rds. But providing the joycons function as controller 3+4 for most games then the values there.

        •  

          @Soluble:"With the grip you have a full second controller"
          Agreed it's a full controller, but it isn't as good a controller as the Pro (imho), but you're trading off the extra functionality of the joy-cons, i suppose.
          For my money, I've purchased a Pro controller already, and would probably purchase another one, before getting another set of Joy-cons… But then that may change depending on what future titles support and utilise. :)

        • +1 vote

          @ToastySteve: Arms will need the second set of joycons. For me as it stands the included set with the grip has nearly got me through zelda, 3/4 through multiplayer snipper clips and working fine with 1 2 switch. Mulyiplayer MK8 on the way. If it wasn't for arms i would prob have purchased the pro controller already.

        • +1 vote

          @Soluble: Good call on Arms. Might be a game changer for me too… pun intended. :P

        •  

          @ToastySteve: yea, nintendo will need to make some really good games which use hd rumble. 1 2 switch was meh. Arms can be really good. The problem with hd rumble is that the majority of 3rd party developers won't take advantage of its features because its different. If there are a lot of games which use hd rumble well, i won't be salty about it.

      •  

        They're either good or bad value depending on how you'll use them. The cost probably reflects the fact that each half needs its own wireless hardware and needs to be able to operate as a self sufficient unit unlike most controllers out there that will have a single wireless controller, battery etc probably in a housing thats much larger to build for.

    •  

      Accessories are marked up significantly because they typically make a loss on the console itself. Same reason console games are usually more expensive than PC counterparts.

    •  

      Have you seen how much the Xbox Elite controller costs?

      I agree with you that Switch controllers are very expensive, but they have a lot of expensive bits inside.

      I thought about making my own, but too busy playing Zelda ;)

      •  

        Amazing game eh. Just landed on my final devine beast, only 54 shrines, 1 devine beast, ganon and 832 korok seeds to go!

        •  

          Haha, I'm nowhere near that far, haven't unlocked anything to tell me how many shrines or anything are left!

          It's definitely a great game, brilliant in how open it is. I'm sure I've done some things in completely the "wrong" order!

        •  

          @abb: Haven't unlock the loading screen yet? :/

        •  

          @KLoNe: From memory it only tells you how many you've completed, not how many exist in total?

        •  

          @abb: Touche!

          Yeah, I don't think it ever tells how many there are left; just when you've done them all.

      •  

        The elite controllers are about $200 right? I guess I see the Nintendo controllers are being more core to the experience; more of an essential than the Elite controller for XB. That's just my impression, it's not unfeasible that it's off, evident by my consideration that joy-con controllers would be a cheap commodity to manufacture, I was way off.

        Dagnamit, I'm just going to have to suck it up and save up until I can afford to buy a Switch with some extra goodies at the same time.

        All you guys'n'gals lucky enough to have a Switch, enjoying it? I heard that Zelda is amazing.

        •  

          I only bought the Switch itself and Zelda. You heard correctly, it's fantastic. If you're a fan of the series you'll definitely enjoy it.

          Oh, I also grabbed Snipperclips (very creative puzzle game) and have been playing that 2-player with the joycons. The joycons are bloody tricky to extract from their little holders, that's my main criticism there.

        •  

          @abb:

          I really like the idea of the joy-cons and I think it's a really innovative feature that will entice a lot of people to the system.

          Glad to hear that Zelda is good, I don't think I've seen a neg review at all.

        Specific controllers for consoles is such a scam.

        They all work the same when plugged into a PC or Android phone - they all have that capability and share very similar functions. But there's profit margins to be made and logos to put on branding so why cut down on waste and support other standards (e.g. USB).

        There's products out there that allow you to use other consoles controllers on different consoles, such as the cronusmax.

          The Switch pro is a bluetooth controller, so compatible on droid and pc (and I think ios as well). No XInput though, so won't be completely compatible with everything.
          Not sure if that's what you were referring to, or if you weren't aware of it.

        •  

          @ToastySteve:

          PS3 also supports bluetooth, but it's in the interest of Nintendo to not support it. Why should they care about their customers having access to controllers in their house already when they can charge you $80 per piece.

          PS4 controller also works as a USB controller without bluetooth for PC gaming or Android. It's directly supported over USB alone without drivers. Nintendo won't be allowing PS4 controllers to hook up through that free standard even though it won't cost them anything - besides lost profits.

          That's the scam I'm referring to. Like printer ink and specific printers. It's all the same ink and they could all make the same cartridge to work in printers across brands - but they don't.

    Hilarious that Nintendo charges more for 1-2-Switch than Ubisoft charges for Ghost Recon Wildlands.

    Those poor children and their parents who fork over $50 for it. It's not even on the level of an indie game, it's like a 10 year old Flash based game on Newgrounds.

    Pro Controller looks good. But I'm not sure what I'll use it for. I play most of Zelda on the tablet. I bought a Wii U Pro Controller last time and used it for exactly one game, Bayonetta 2. The Joycons grip is totally fine for me. Only complaint is that the sticks are about 1mm shorter than I'd like.

  •  

    I would highly recommend the Pro Controller. Super comfy and I much prefer playing zelda with it than in tablet/joy-con configuration.
    I would alternative recommend 1-2 switch. It's truly awful. And I'm a massive ninty fan who's generally easily pleased..

  •  

    Nice price for 1 2 Switch, very creative and fun, great game. Perfect for the system to be honest. One of the best multiplayer local games out there. Ignore the angry insecure internet "gamer" types for that one. More games compared to Wii Sport, with 28 in this. Great use of the controllers, gaming needs more unique games. The gorilla one is hilarious, alot of different stuff in there.

    •  

      I don't think people a necessarily hating on the game itself, just the truly outrageous price they are asking. $49 for a game that (like WiiSports) should have been included in the console price is ridiculous. It's really nothing more than a tech demo for the joy-cons and while it does have some great minigames, paying this much for a demo is just plain price gouging, i wouldn't pay more than $20 for it.

      If you want a truly great multiplayer game (and in my opinion the best on the system) go for Snipperclips. Much cheaper and lots and lots of fun to be had on there with some tricky puzzles thrown in too! My gf (non-gamer) and I absolutely love it, takes us back to playing the co-op lego games together.

      •  

        Nah, Its really just the insecure internet "gamer" types getting sensitive over it, insecure nintendo types wanting to fit in with angry xbox sony fans and what is acceptable in internet nerd culture/ games culture. The minigame thing is always overscrutinized with they have alot of replay value, its a strong point of Nintendo systems. Nobody had a problem with these type of games until the Wii became popular, gamers only like the casual games that they approve of (open world, shooters, vanilla sports, action). People that have it in the real see the value in it, but it will be lost on the gamer minority online…

        If it had 3-4 games i would probably lean towards what your saying, but it has 28 minigames, more then 2 players plus some single player. "Tech demo" is mostly used as a gamer term put-down and while it may be, its still a game with alot of unique games whether "gamers" like to admit it or not. Plus its fun. Most other AAA games are still tech demos and have far less gameplay compared to this ironically. Game records scores so you can go back and try to break records.

        Compared to paying 50-60 for a thinly disguished movie with excessive mocap cgi and little gameplay or copy paste open worlds we've played a million times, can get more out of this in long run.

        It actually has alot of different gameplay types, sensor, rhythm, motion, rumble, screens, non-screen. Each unique. Its worth it, especially on a system with a built in second controller and a portable screen on the go. Its a pack in some places but its like a couple of bucks per game either way.

        The other people that have a problem with it are individuals with "body issues" and individuals that don't have friends or family, using that as an excuse to write it off. Unfortunate but its the truth.

        Snipperclips is decent sure, but far less variety then this and its more repetitive. Game is selling well, i get that people that comment here mostly comment to justify why they shouldnt buy something (unless its a game they like or it has the company logo they like, which im not about).

          It literally is a bunch of tech demos. Stop promoting trash.

        •  

          @KLoNe: Its a game, a fun one too with alot of different minigames. Cry elsewhere silly angry gamer. Lol.

        • -1 vote

          I certainly wouldn't call myself an insecure gamer or an angry for the sake of being angry gamer. As a fairly casual gamer I actually love these types of games, mainly because I can play them with friends while we're having a few beers. However, this game falls very far short of a good game for this. Yeah it has 28 games but who cares if more than 20 of them just aren't very good?

          Tech demo in this case isn't used as some "gamer term put-down" as you put it, it's used because a game like this for nintendo has previously been included in new systems (for no cost) to DEMONSTRATE the capabilities of the system and how to use it.

          I don't see how other AAA games are tech demo's in this sense.

          For the thinly disguised movie bit I would direct you to GTA 5 or The Witcher 3. Hundred's and hundred's of hours were lost in those game with very little repetitiveness and were unique at the time.

          It does have those unique gameplay types, but that's the point. This is a demo meant to demonstrate how to use the system and what it can do.

          I don't think you need to bring people's body weight into this as it isn't relevant at all and the fact that you think it would really hurts your argument.

          I'll agree that snipperclips does get a bit repetitive, but the variety of puzzles and different ways you can go about them dulls that.

        •  

          @jredy29:

          I only mentioned body issues (I never said "weight"), because its a very real reason why certain individuals write such games off, its the truth. Unless its on a platform they approve of. Lol. A bunch of these 1-2 Switch games arent entirely that demanding.

          You are probably a bit more fickle if your on ozbargain and not really representative of average joe/casual video game fans,

          i just pointed out where the attitude comes from. I just give an honest take as a video game fan (not a stereotypical gamer) and i mostly use Xbox. Of the 28 games, i can honestly say they are fun and have alot of variety. The whole they're "not good" is really just insecurity over the sillyness of it and the fear of the platforms success and the type of out of the box games it will bring.

          There are plenty of random youtube videos of average joes enjoying it already, outside of the cult of "gamer" types who see the game and the platform threatening to the "core" games (which are usually ironically casual).

          It makes good use of the systems controllers and still functions as diverse genre games for people to play. Again if it was only 3-4 i would see the point but this has alot more then that and uses the screens too. Portable is a gamechanger. Couple of bucks a game.

          Not seeing how many AAA games are thinly disguished repeated tech demos? Says alot about "gamer" attitudes towards certain type of games/systems, ironically. Lol. Look at the copied open world structure of certain games and tired recycled mechanics and overemphasis on cutscenes and borderline on rails sections with little movement in action adventures. Alot as bad as JRPG type repetition.

          Witcher 3 was a filler fest open world game, same thing we always get, and most people i've talked to only like it for story, same with alot of other games, GTA not so much, though GTA was obviously a pioneer of genre. That still has some forced story stuff though.

          Witcher 3, but to a larger extent Uncharted very much tech demos for visual engines and mo cap type cgi cutscene movie stuff. HZD basically another far cry copy paste to display emulated/upscaled 4k visuals for Ps4Pro. Nobody cared for the Witchers previously and the gameplay was meh, wasnt until a bunch of big companies went away that people now act like its this big deal game.

          At least Mass Effect Andromeda is kind of trying to expand its gameplay, though the visual story obsession drags it down.

          Quantum Break is a fun game with strong gameplay that was too an extent brought down by the over-obsession with throwing in a story, which Alan Wake intergrated better.

          Either way, i wouldnt entirely act like those games (all of which) werent expensive to produce, but the cynicism towards certain companies doing things with new tech speaks volumes about toxic angry internet gamers. It is what it is.

    •  

      I'd rather play games like Raving Rabbid 2 or the Bishi Bashi on PlayStation. It's more fun in my opinion and not too "over the top" like the 1 2 Switch
