310 with bomberman (saving you 15 quid on bomberman) or 1-2 switch (saving a couple quid) or another that I cant remember

or

320 with zelda (saving maybe 8 quid on zelda depending where you buy it from)

This was only worthwhile for me cause i actually wanted bomberman but wasn't keen on paying 45 quid on it. Its still a better deal with zelda than most places which just charge you individually for each item.

Hopefully switch retail prices drop like newly released ps4 games.

Pre order £30-40, released day £40ish, couple weeks later £28-30 then slowly dropping further.

Its rrp is actually 49.9 which is even worse. Third party games will absolutely come down, nintendos flagship stuff not so much

The deals are available for click and collect online as just tried adding items to basket and deducts saving. Allowed me to reserve for my local store

It's weird right? It seems to be Nintendos new marketing tactic. They did it with Amiibo (and it worked) now maybe they're trying it with software sales. Maybe it will work since Nintendo have a small but loyal fanbase. Who knows. I just want a hardcopy of the new Zelda on Wii U for less than £44.99

It depends on how Nintendo see this system..

Nintendos handhelds all went through different iterations in their lifes

GB, GBC, GBA, SP etc..

DS, DSL, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, new 3DS (XL)

But non of the consoles have had redesigns (Wii mini aside)

So if this is a home console I wouldn't bet on a redesign, but if Nintendo plan on this Repalcing the DS line, then we may very well see a new design. the timescale of which based on previous models averages at about 18-24 months.

If for no other reason this system is unfinished and buggy. Early adopters must expect a bunch of problems it seems. No need for anyone to rush in on it at this price and this early.

Except if you want to play right now what a great many respected sources are saying may be the best game ever made...

The Wii went through 3 iterations. In addition to the original and the Mini, there was the family edition. Prior to that Nintendo's home consoles used expansions and add-ons to enhance functionality instead. The only console Nintendo haven't sought to expand and improve is the Wii U, likely because the Switch is the logical progression.

If the Switch is a success, I'd be surprised if they don't refine it in some way. They can't really use add-ons to enhance it as it's primarily a portable system.

Which you can also play on Wii U. Presumably already having one of those if you are a Nintendo fan. It's a steep price nonetheless for one game on currently flawed hardware. I wouldn't be in any hurry at all to get a Switch looking at the reported problems and lack of online, it's as if Nintendo launched this several months too early.

I don't think there is any doubt waiting for it to be a much better proposition later in the year is sensible.

I would hardly count the family edition that removed functionality hence why i left out the Wii mini.. expansions aren't exactly refinements and the only expansions we saw this side was the Memory PAK for N64 we never saw The 64DD and other than that not sure what expansion your referring too.

But like I said it depends how Nintendo sees this console.

Fair enough, I'll be enjoying my new Switch and Zelda tomorrow anyway - low frame rates on Wii U I hear.

And yes, Nintendo fan, that's why I'm buying the Switch at launch.

Apparently the game suffers low framerate when docked on the Switch too. The GPU clocks when docked isn't enough to make up for the extra resolution the game is also forced into rendering. If you want to play it on a big screen then it appears to hardly matter if it's on a Wii U or Switch.

With the Wii U's big screen advantages being the controller is better suited (i.e it actually works) unless you fork out again for the pro controller for the Switch.

My local was marked as having no bomberman stock and had plenty. I got the only console not preordered though.

Incorrect. In a recent Gamespot podcast, they said there was a framerate issue when the Switch was docked, but not when used on-the-go. However, they quickly followed this up by saying that the framerate issue only happened the first time they played the game docked. On further boot ups, there were no framerate issues.

Other videos posted in the past couple of days with actual hardware disagree. We'll see about it when there is frame rate analysis but it appears that when docked, Switch absolutely has frame rate issues just like Wii U does. Whichever system you play it on you have less than perfect big screen gameplay.

The main difference appears to be the serious problems people have been having with Switch's joycons used more than a metre or two away from the machine when docked. This is allied to the fact you can't charge them separate to the machine without spending even more money, so it seems people mostly playing the games with it undocked. No notable performance issues then.

Ditto on Switch. The news gets worse according to the honest review free from fanboy nonsense at Arstechnica.com,

far-off objects in Breath of the Wild frequently pop into view as they reach a threshold distance from your character. At one point, I was literally climbing up a seemingly invisible tree for a few seconds before it popped into existence before my eyes. That's not the sign of a system that's easily handling the vast open world it's being fed from memory.
Breath of the Wild also features significant load times of 10 to 15 seconds after every death
the game was much more liable to show dips in frame rate and stuttering when docked to the TV, apparently struggling due to the effort of pushing those extra pixels.
It's especially worrying since this is a game that was originally designed for the nearly five-year-old Wii U

So there you have it. Nintendo's flagship game for Switch is riddled with performance problems and not only that it actually performs worse when docked oO due to not being able to effectively process the higher resolution graphics despite the power boost.

Just come back from midnight launch, can confirm these are correct offers.

Unfortunately they had no physical stock of either Bomberman, which I would have gone for, or Zelda in the Reading store. Had to do the £40 Zelda deal on the digital code.

Don't think its been mentioned but UK site doesn't seem to have Neon, For my Irish Amigo's the same deal is on but we can get Neon ones FYI

Actually checked the list of release titles.

Cancelled, and bought Zelda for Wii U instead.

It's safe to assume they're going to follow the 3DS format for several reasons.
It makes them more money. Nintendo hard-core buy every version.
Microsoft and Sony are doing it too with their own S versions.
Tablets are more powerful and cheaper to produce every year with no real r&d effort required on Nintendos part.
I'll be amazed if we don't see a thinner, lighter, longer battery life brighter screen version in 2018.

I Agree, was just playing devils advocate.. I think nintendo is going to focus on one console, no more dedicated handheld..

unless maybe we see a switch light in the future a smaller handheld with non detachable controls? although thats probably unlikely.

Does switch have any games already on it as modt games pre order

This has to be the strangest console launch in recent years. 6 games of which a number are hard to get a hold of, and a console that is in good supply everywhere!
