    I'm torn between getting this or a PS4.
    There's probably not a lot of games for the switch console

      Totally different beasts - I'd recommend both.

      Highlights for me on Switch are Zelda, Mario Odyssey and Skyrim (!). Plus they're porting a ton of older games. It's cool in that it's portable. You can be playing at home, pull out the console and keep playing on the bus/train. Or go to your room if someone else needs the TV.

      PS4 has a huge variety of AAA games by comparison, but you're restricted to playing on the TV.

        Ok. Didn't think of that. Thanks

        •  

          You can stream PS4 games to a PC, phone with a controller, or to PSP Vita, just a heads up.

        Yeah but how many of them are worth playing? I'm not down to drop a few hundred bucks on a gaming device to only be able to play games that look like they were made in the late 90s.

          If someone only cares about how they look graphics wise, the Switch won't be for them, as it is way less powerful than PS4 Pro/Xbox One X.
          Its for people who like the portable concept + the first party games etc

      Having the switch has pushed me away from consoles and PCs a bit. It's just nice to play when i want where I want given I have the time. Your gaming isn't limited to being seated. That said. I do think overall consoles have more higher quality games

        Yeah I only ever use mine when I can't use a console or a PC, so it doesn't get a lot of air time. It annoys me that Switch games seem way more expensive than PC/XB1/PS4 which prevents me from buying older games again.

      Have both, the Switch is my least used, most games are available and are significantly cheaper on other platforms, as well as perform better too. The design isn't great, no bluetooth, the top ten games are still mostly the games it was released with, and they're only now just looking at adding features that should have been available at launch.
      Don't get me wrong, it's a fun little toy - but unless you're concerned about portability, I'd go with a PS4 or XB1.

        The Switch does use Bluetooth, but it's locked down to being used for the Joycons. With the modding scene being very active, I think we'll get something like hid2vpad allowing other Bluetooth controllers to work, but I agree the lack of Bluetooth audio is annoying.

        Luckily if I'm playing hand-held audio cables aren't an issue, they're easily able to connect.

        If I'm playing in TV mode it's still not an issue, as even most low end TV's by Samsung, LG etc have Bluetooth audio output that'll work with your headphones.

        What 10 games are you referring to? Sure, Zelda is still one of the top games, but Splatoon, Mario Odyssey, Kirby, Labo, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Snipperclips, Arms, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the ports (Bayonetta, Skyrim, Fortnite, Stardew Valley etc) all released after launch and those are the games other than BOTW that I think of when I think of the top games for the Switch. There's also a huge number of fantastic games announced but not yet released.

        Nintendo is slow in the adding features department, I agree with that, but anyone who's had a recent Nintendo console would already know that. Nintendo consoles are made to do one thing, play games and they do it well. Other consoles try to be a jack of all trades.

        I agree that the portability of the Switch is one of the main features, but I disagree that you shouldn't look at the Switch unless you want portability. I have an Xbox One S and a Switch (well, two. One for games one for modding) and the Xbox is just a glorified bluray player to me, it has next to no console exclusives and almost everything available on it runs better on a PC instead, while also being cheaper on PC and having Xbox controller support. Nintendo consoles on the other hand have a LOT of exclusives. I rarely use my Switch in hand-held mode, it's always on a 55" TV being played with a pro controller, and while a bump up in resolution would be absolutely amazing, Nintendo games are usually more timeless and less focused on graphics that become outdated a couple of years later and need a revision. This usually works surprisingly well, as Nintendo games are usually more cartoonist and age better than games trying to look realistic.

        Anyway, that's just my 2c as the owner of a Switch and Xbox One.

      depends on your gaming habits and choices. I have an xbox one, ps4 and switch and the ps4 gets the most usage (mainly for the exclsives like Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Horizon: Zero Dawn etc.) whereas the switch is currently in favour due to homebrew and tinkering with it, the xbox one has collected dust and not even been switched on in the past year. I keep it mainly for backwards compatibility for the few xbox 360 games my daugther enjoys (viva pinata etc.) IF she wants to play them again.

        Thanks for the info

      Skyrim is available on the PS4 for a lot cheaper with better visuals, while Breath of the Wild, Splatoon, Mario Kart is available on the Wii U you can pick up for cheap.

      I'll get a Switch when there are some games that actually make it worth owning. I own or have owned Wii U, Wii, 3DS so I definately like Nintendo style games.

        Splatoon 2 is only on the Switch, that's an unfair comparison, it may be a sequel but the games are completely different. I own both 1 and 2 and they're both brilliant games with huge changes between the two, unlike a lot of sequels.

        I own a Wii U as well, and Mario Kart 8 was remade for the Switch with extra content added, it wasn't just a port. Also works out cheaper if you would have bought the Wii U MK8 DLC.

        There's also Mario Odyssey, Kirby, Labo, Snipperclips, Arms, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Golf Story etc and some really good games upcoming (really hyped for Octopath, Smash, TWEWY remake with extra content, Mario Party, Fire Emblem, Yoshis Island, Bayonetta 3, Shin Megami Tensei, Metroid Prime and the new Pokémon game, among other exclusives), so it might be worth getting one around Christmas time with the sales, stack on some discounted gift cards as well for maximum savings.

        If you're into modding the Switch is worth getting with how active the scene is, just make sure you get it before the Mariko revision or you might be waiting for a while.

      No regrets.

    Homebrew scene is up and running fyi. Not really worth playing online in until smash comes out in December..unless you like splatoon

    •  

      I like Splatoon, so the solution was simple.

      To anyone who wants a Switch and isn't in a rush, if they wait a couple of months for discounted catch cards those make it pretty cheap, got my second one for $300.

    Can you scan youelr EB card during checkout or when picking up to receive the EBgames reward points?

    • +1 vote

      my local EB has always scanned my EB card when picking up ebay purchases. Maybe best to confirm with your local store.

  •  

    All currently existing switches are homebrew capable with no possibility of a remote patch.

    •  

      This is because of a hardware-based vulnerability being exploited in the boot loader/ROM which means there is no way for Nintendo to patch this - other than releasing a new hardware revision of the switch

    Would you guys say this is a decent deal or better to wait?
