i got the nintendo switch yesterday and i hate it with a passion. played on bomberman couldn't get into it did not enjoy the experience at all. playing battle mode 2 player with the joy cons just doesn't work. the 1 2 switch game is pants gimiky nonsense. zelda does look and plays great when it doesn't freeze. only good thing i did like was the pro controller. i have put it all on ebay today. going to buy zelda for wii u.
iam a life long nintendo fan with all of there consoles from the nes upwards. i think nintendo need to stick at what they do best and just make games not consoles.

I am not happy at all. mine just arrived this morning. I would probably be selling it after playing Zelda. The build quality looks cheap. also it's smaller than I anticipated, I think 6.1" screen. Phones have that kinds of screen now. I was expecting a little larger screen. joycons feels laughably small. I honestly did not know the screen is 720p, that just sucks. Thank God I did not get the pro controller. looks good on TV though.

the joy controllers are terrible far to small and not user friendly

i personally love the switch, alot better than i expected, the joy cons in my opinions dont feel bad at all and my switchs builds really sturdy.
me and my boyfriend were playing snipperclips for a good 2 hours yesterday using a joycon each and my hands didnt feel cramped during that time. i personally love the display and think this is probably nintendos best console since the ds was released

The Switch is fantastic, great for what it is, very portable, well built, clever. However at £280, it represents poor value. At around the £200 mark it maybe worth it. I wasnt expecting much from the switch but I was surprised, the hardware is very nice, software is a whole diff story. Hardly anything to play on it. Yes theres Zelda, but you can buy a wii u for nearly half the price. ( I know its not portable but...). Theres a feel good from buying a new console, but a heart wrenching "is this all you get" feeling that leaves you a bit empty, with no catalogue of games to make it better.

I like my switch and pro controller so far. used it on a journey yesterday and worked perfectly. Zelda looks great and i will use it a lot in my travels. with trades I hardly paid anything out so for me it was worth it and i justified my.purchase on the first trip alone. it's not for everyone because of its size but if you want to play on the go its possibly a good investment as it was for me.

tempted to buy the Wii u just to play Zelda. can you use a browser in the Wii u

I love mine. I think its well built and very sleek. Its going to be great fun at times when I wouldn't normally be able to play. Zelda is amazing from the little i have played. And snipper clippers has been fun with my girlfriend too. Its a good start as far as im concerned. It will get slowly better and better too. Happy with my purchase think its a great piece of kit.

You say snipperclips is fun but I'm not sure my marriage can survive it

Why are you putting on eBay? Just return it from where you purchased it.

I love my Switch. I always had my doubts about Zelda but I've actually loved it so far. The Joy-Cons are great. I don't have big hands so I love the size of them (though I mostly put them in that controller thing, which was more comfortable than I thought). With more game releases coming soon, it's only going to get better and better. Bought 1-2-Switch and the whole family loves the game. The price for 1-2-Switch is a little too much for what it is, but I wanted it enough to buy it at the price it is. I've mostly played on my TV but I think the screen is big enough (compare it to the Wii U gamepad screen or something and you'll see what I mean. It may even be bigger than the PS Vita's screen (don't quote me on that though, haven't played my Vita for a few months)

Haha we've had no arguments yet. Its actually very player friendly, if you cut the other player wrong they can simply hold a button to reset the character to its original shape.

I personally have not brought one as I'm waiting to see weather things get better.. I see many comments above saying it will get better but I'm guessing that's people that have parted with the money and are hoping it gets better as secretly they are disappointed with the limited software on offer. I hope it does get better to warrant me to buy one and so all you above are not left with a console with limited game options

i agree i really do love nintendo products (even the wii u) but the switch is a definite fail for me. thankfully i have a bid for £460 at the moment so i may not lose too much money on it.

loving my switch, playing BOTW, 12 hours in and not seen a dropped frame. Joycons are serviceable for handheld use, the pro controller is decent. Battery life is meh but the console for me is a very nice bit of kit. Considering it cost me less than my iPad I have to say I can't grumble at the value. I'm looking forward to what's to come for the switch and I've no doubt it will be successful in the market going forward.

is that how u buy everything without checking obvious specs .That's ur own fault u can't blame anyone else about the size or screen quality if u can't be bothered check simple stuff like that either u have too much money to throw away or its some other odd thing.

Or maybe he hasn't actually touched one & is just a troll with nothing better to do...

Nintendo=crap last 15 year, go to PlayStation

I'm liking mine nice clean and uncluttered UI

Around 12 hrs into Zelda and it's very good although I'm not keen on playing in portable mode with joycons attached, as for me personally I find the stick and button positions quite awkward to use. There are dropped frames playing in docked mode anyone saying they don't get that is telling porkies but it doesn't bother me in the slightest and may well be fixed in a patch who knows

Pro controller is good no complaints

Overpriced yes but all new hardware always is

Sort out the virtual console and I'll be a happy chappie

I bought my switch yesterday, played zelda last night with the Mrs and personally think it's a great game. Attached the jcons to the controller thingy that came with the switch and that makes a great controller. I think the hardware is sound and as for not having many games available Im pretty sure everyone knows this console is not going to rival xbox or ps4 but if like me you wanted a console more aimed at the family with a few great Nintendo games on it then you should be happy enough with it to warrant the purchase.
#23
AFter cancelling my pre-order I had a go on a mates last night... I didn't realise the screen was so small.. My Note 5 screen is nearly the same size... Ridiculous.
#24
I received mine on release day, but didn't even bother to play on it. I think they needed better games at release, and it would of been good to have a few demo's on the e-shop, to have a go of.
#25
coming from a vita, shield tablet, shield portable, gpd win, surface pro 4, ridiculous gaming laptops etc, this is the portable gaming device you want. very sleek piece of kit. and zelda is brilliant, and I don't like rpgs.
you're paying a premium for it but the simplicity and innovation is bliss

Agree they could have had a little more to explore but ninty know what they are doing. Releasing the console with a huge game and now the best rated game ever will pull the punters in regardless. Sell out of most 1st transit stock and on to the next. I dont personally care if nintendo dont have a huge catalogue of games as it just encourages cheap carp to come out that is pointless. The graphics for me are where they need to be as its a game and i only care about playability and gameplay.
And the comment above about the screen size been so small... what did you expect? An 88" toshiba tv with controllers attached at the side.

There is a demo for that snipperclips thing on the store. Trial for splatoon is near the end of the month. And of course zelda is great. I'm loving my switch so far.
