Not staying up late or waking up early for this, but will catch up with the news at a more sensible time of the morning :)

I must admit, I am getting a tad fed up with Nintendo and stock shortages, especially after they messed me about with an order last month for a NES Mini controller. But I know I'll get sucked into the hype and end up pre-ordering a Switch

I'd probably be doing the same thing too. Might wake up early but not early enough to watch it live.

Not happy with the shortage either. Wasn't really planning on pre-ordering it unless we are guaranteed to get Zelda at release but the whole shortage thing really tempts me in fear of not getting one by the time Zelda does come out. lol. I guess that is why they are even doing it in the first place, to drive us crazy for something that is hard to get only to end up annoyed when a lot are being sold on ebay for higher prices. Hope you managed to get that NES controller all sorted

That's kinda my thinking also, get one to play Zelda on. But after the initial drop of them, when will there be stock resupplies :(

Controller isn't sorted :( Basically ordered when the xmas advent calendar offer was on, they took the money 2 days later. 3 weeks later, they cancelled because of "stock shortages". I had to mail them to complain, as they didn't refund my money straight away, also complained about the 10% credit back as an apology.. 90p wow thanks,, they've refunded my money, but not answered my other queries like how they can't get stock of their own products. So the whole thing has left a bitter taste with me when it comes to Nintendo :(

I'm personally gonna go with Amazon, aiming to get in as soon as they start taking orders. Not let me down with the PSVR and NES Mini.

Game are already taking pre-orders, online or in store, but in store they want £20 deposit.. But Game, love them or hate them, should get a decent amount of stock to fulfil pre-orders

About a month ago someone posted a deal for it at Gameseek and it has been expired but the price is still showing £198.50. I think it's best to wait until tomorrow and check whichever retailer you like the best and see what all gets announced first, maybe we will get options of different colours or different HDD sizes or something.

At the moment I do have a pre-order in for the Wii U version which is a safe-keeping order if anything was to go wrong with the Switch. Hopefully the second batch of them won't be far off from the first. The wait is horrible!

Sorry to hear the controller isn't sorted. Is this from Nintendos website itself? I thought that would be a bad place to buy things as their customer support was a nightmare to me in the past. Took them weeks to respond between each email.

I read a Tweet from someone earlier saying the Amazon will be ready tomorrow. So there must be a page already made for it and you only need to keep refreshing. lol

Yeah the .co.uk store :( and they've got no better at responding to mails, taken them about 2 weeks to come back to me to ask me some questions designed to stall things, such as my order number which is in the title of the mail.. I might ring them next week and have a rant :)

Amazon indeed have had a page for a while, I've got it added to my wish list on there ,so lots of checking tomorrow :)

Amazon did well with PSVR and also PS4 Pro, just make sure your card details do not expire before the console ship date!

Looking forward to it, more for the rumoured Gamecube backwards compatibility. Day one purchases of: F-Zero, Waverace, MGS: Twin Snakes, Pikmin & Luigi's Mansion.

I'd love to stay up and watch live, but 4am (presumably not finishing until around 5am) is just a little beyond what I can allow myself, given that I need then to be up again shortly after 6am!

As for pre-ordering, for now I have a protective pre-order in with ShopTo; beyond that, I'll be watching for what opportunities come up.

Confirms the size of the game cards, about 3DS size, possibly a bit longer.

Hoping UK retailers do some aggressive reductions and special offers like they did for the Wii U and 3DS launches.

This is 100% happening and has been widely, if unofficially reported amongst the gaming press.

I'll be pre-ordering from Amazon; hopefully the Prime membership might allow me a slightly earlier pre-order than those without it (they're running a lot of these type of offers recently).

I'm absolutely waking up for this.

That really sucks. :( Should certainly give them a good rant. Hopefully they will sort everything soon. Thanks for sharing your story btw, it's very helpful to know how useless they are so we can avoid them, especially when it comes to buying the Switch.

Oh yeah I can't wait for that gamecube stuff too! So many amazing games on that I'd love to play again. The Mario Kart Double Dash and the Luigi's Mansion are important to get! lol

Such a bad timing. On the bright side I'm sure the news will be all available by the time we wake up so we can get a quick look at everything before we go off to do the things we gotta do. That's a good idea having a protective pre-order!

I have had to sacrifice a lot for this bloomin' Switch by the way. Me and the other half came to an agreement that if I'm allowed this, then I had to thin out my collection by 80%.

Needless to say, the charity shops in my area have been very busy in the last 6 weeks... (In excess of 400 games from Super Nintendo through to XB1).

Haven't gone day 1 on a console since the Gamecube, so it's probably a good reflection of how excited I am for this.

Buy three of them, I think that's the sweet spot to having a free one after selling the other two

Thanks for the post. You will want to go to the UK page to watch the european specific version of the presentation as the content will likely differ slightly and include details regarding price. All regions should have the same launch games, but there may be some deviation. https://www.youtube.com/user/NintendoUKofficial

My OH and myself are looking to get this mostly because we expect a decent amount of couch co-op gaming.

There is such a shortage of such titles on current generation consoles.

$299 converts to just under £250. I really thought the Switch would be cheaper than that! I'm quite surprised.
#31
I'm also surprised that online will cost by fall. You'd have thought they'd try to be as different and as tempting as possible given sales of the Wii U and seemingly how important getting the next console right will be for them...

Maybe we will start getting 'free' games from their back catalogue every month...

The controllers look stupid, but the things they do look really good. Especially the motion stuff. I found something nice to say :)

£250 + vat = £300. So £299.99 most likely I think.

Spot on. Considering how much people can get a PS4 or XBONE for, that's brave. SM Odyssey looks beautiful though!
