This is a mobile phone game with a retail triple AAA price. Switch looks decent but this is a con.

From the trailer i've seen (which is all that is available I think) I tend to agree. For Nintendo to not bundle this with the Switch like they did with Wii Sports and Nintendoland (although this was garbage) is a bit strange. Their reason is they think people would prefer to buy games based on their own choice but that goes against their reason for adding Wii Sports.

Still, can't wait to milk a cow in my living room.

I have a feeling there will be deals on this game for £10 in about a years time. Certainly no reason to rush into a purchase, is hardly a must have Switch game?

This is a tech demo from the looks of it and not a very good one. Even Nintendo Land was better.

I **** the 2DS and the Eshop with frequency on here! In fact it seems to annoy some people. I am buying a Switch yes, but for kids Xmas, so plenty time to hopefully get a reasonable deal. Am anticipating there will be some sort of nice special edition game/box bundle for Xmas, there usually is with a new console.

I won't be getting the Sonic Mania game though, it looks dreadful. Nothing new and same old really. Totally disappointed, was expecting something more adventurous or a Sonic Maker with level creator.

EDIT: **** = 5lag - apparently this is a naughty word now! regardless of context or which definition of it used.

Whats with all the Nintendoland hate? Mario Chase was and still is fantastic, and the cardboard ninja alley was sublime.

This feels like a game that should have joycons bundled with it though. And the USP of "you don't look at the handheld console you just waited 2 years for and spent 300 euro on, you look at your opponent..." - I can do that for free right now!

Sonic Mania has tons of potential and will receive plenty of positive feedback but I just don't like the 16bit-like graphics, they should offer it with Generations' visuals too.

Nintendo have been tryingvto find away which allows them to market a device whereby they can claim "oh, we aren't comoeting with them" for a long time. They think this is it, so intend to go full hog at gouging everyone.

It is essentially a ds. (Modern day gameboy) The fact mobiles and other modern tech devices connect with each other means it' inevitable it would connect to tv, if it wished to stay relevant.

Make no mistake, this isn't even last gen as a home console, it'almost the gen before that. (I suppose it depends how you look at it)

As it stands it is way over priced. I didn't think they would gouge the cheap tat games too.

I'm beginning to think Nintendo are doing this on purpose. Pricing way too high, so when you are forced to reduce to still a gigh price people think look at this deal. Like Mike Ashleys sales and fake rrp.

Ridiculous, but meh

Also no accessory compatibility if you have a Wii or Wii u. All new accessories and the cost a hell of a lot more than previous, for a hell of a lot cheaper components. Then pay for online.

Nintendo think they have sufficient distance from Microsoft and Sony, but more importantly, from mobile. While still being able to claim they they are in same sector so can charge for online, etc.

They're wrong

There should be another Sonic game to look out for. Could be just too early to reveal it though

Oh christ, the poor sods demo-ing it and trying to appear enthusiastic as if their life depended on it... which really it does as their job is likely riding on it.

This will die faster than the Wii U. Too expensive & cumbersome for a handheld, not enough horsepower for home console games so there will be bo 3rd party support. Should have focussed on making a worth successor to the 3DS. Not this weird hybrid, jack of all trades but excelling at nothing "Console".

The part in their presentation where they showed all their previous hardware and said they had put parts from it all in this sums up the problem, they want this to be too many thinga at once.

Kill it.

will be in the sales section for 5£ 2 months after release, RIP Nintendo

Respawn, the developers of Titanfall 2 have handled DLC very well too. They're giving multiplayer maps away for free instead of rinsing you out. Just a shame the game hasn't sold too well.

Watching the presentation I truly thought that this was to show of the Switches capabilities and built into the console, can't believe they are charging for it. I will pick it up when under £10.

I have no friends either, nothing is as fun without a friend but that is why they made Zelda lol.

Don't think so. Not really for me as I don't have anyone to play with either. I'm really just after games like Zelda, Mario Kart, Pokemon, etc

The early reviews of people that have played this are extremely positive. Got a bit of a hybrid Wii Sports / Wario Ware thing going on. It's a bit daft to judge it solely on the Japanese launch. I'm picking this up for sure - great for parties and for people in the house that are more Wii gamers than they are traditional gamers.

The recent pricing from Nintendo has inspired me to 'switch' to an X-Box One S

Yes, I'm flipping furious at the rip off that is Switch. I'm pretty surprised at the number of people that have pre-ordered to be honest. With the tiny amount of games and sky high prices for everything it seems like launch date really ISN'T the time to buy this console.

I was planning to get one next Christmas, but even by then there will still only be a handful of extra games released. I'm just so underwhelmed with the whole thing, but once again Nintendo seem to be able to get away with doing the bare minimum and still get sales. Crazy.

I went to X-box but the interface was so clunky, it was just gathering dust over the PS4. Just wasn't feeling it, The Switch is way overpriced, I am somehow trying to justify the cost but I do want one.

​come to think of it I remember you hoe/ing the eshop :p i like the 2ds, bought for girl when she was 3 so didnt snap the hinge on 3ds although she looks after it well!! getting it for the kids is a good excuse to buy one (_;) ill get one most likely but like you ill wait, is sonic mania like heroes on GC? I played one level on that n gave up it was terrible n not sonic at all, Shadow on the other hand was a great game.
Sonic maker, holy sugar what a game that would be you should pitch that idea, closest i.got to creating a sonic game was the glitch of making your own boxes/enemies X)

my wii is getting a dust off and about to introduce my 4 year old to wii bowling... plus i still never completed mario galaxy 1 & 2, donkey kong, super mario bros or both zelda games, so think by the time ive done that the switch will either be dead or at least much better value with decent catalogue of games!

You never know, the Switch might be a prize in next year's Flamedeer competition for the Candled set. Start collecting them now just in case ...

Looked to be a nice pack in title. But at 35£, no way. Nintendo is sabotaging itself
