Coming from someone who's bought a switch at launch
I had an amazing time with Zelda and got 50+ hours with it and the occasional game of Bomberman and Shovel Knight when friends are around. But I have not used it since I completed Zelda just due to the lack of single player games.
Mario Kart, Splatoon and Puyo Puyo Tetris is out soon but those are more catered for Multiplayer and co op. I don't think no decent single player games are out soon so bare that in mind. I've actually gone back to my Vita just to finish off Persona 4 and I wish the switch had some games like that because I could see myself playing on the go and docking it back at home.

But if you got a lot of mates always around and do enjoy co op it would be a good time to pick it up.

Would have picked these up if I wasn't waiting for the rediculous looking urine yellow joycons to be released alongside ARMS.
Good price for those that don't mind the grey though (although expect these to drop even further as I can't imagine that this colour sells all that well).
Waiting for yellow too - although i only want one joycon, as I'm hoping they'll release green shortly after so that I'll have one of each neon colour.8)

If your urine is the colour of the yellow neon controllers then you should see a doctor X)

For people saying these are overpriced. A company specialising in pricing electronics components said that a pair of these cost Nintendo $100 to manufacture. There's a **** load of tech in these little things.
If you believe that, especially if you believe nintendo would sell anything at a loss, then you'd buy snake oil as long as it had nintendo's name to it. Sorry I had to say something even though I tend to not get involved in nintendo fan madness.
Although it's not common for Nintendo, companies often sell hardware at a loss to make it up in software sales.
Joy con is the right word if this is how much Nintendo charge for controllers.

How is it that people put the strap thing on backwards? It's clearly marked with ++ --
Maybe because certain things do go + to - like batteries for example.

I refuse to pay £300 just to play Mario, which frankly for most people is all that carries Nintendo these days. I will never forget my Nintendo childhood memories but it's not the nineties any more and all rounders like the PS4, which is also cheaper and has lots more games power and a thriving ecosystem are obviously the better investment by far. I sincerely wish Nintendo sold Mario and Mario Kart on the PlayStation, as I would buy each iteration time and time again, but I'm not buying an entire console just for two games... :|
There are all sorts of innovative and beautifully polished games that are on the market or soon to be released such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Bomber Man R, Snipperclips, Graceful Explosion Machine, Fast RMX, Snake Pass. Relive your childhood, amigo. It's a happy place! :)

bar the first two and mario odyssey...you know the rest of that list will be in the £3.99 bucket in wilko's by xmas.

I kind of agree. I cannot justify this for the cost of just Zelda and Mario. Possibly when it is sub £250 I will probably jump in. But I'm hanging fire for now but it does look a mint secondary device
I'm going to hold fire on what I was about to contribute. ;)

Street Fighter was amazing... 25 years ago! Why the hell would anyone pay £30 for it today?
I really don't understand why people are so into the Switch... the games are all so overpriced and overhyped.
It's easy to understand why people like the Switch.
What is more confusing is the people who have no interest in a item/deal but feel the need to enter a thread and post a negative comment.
Because they're gamer's that want their games appropriately priced? It's not really that confusing. No-one's saying you're not allowed to go for a deal if it suits you.Personally I have issues with a lot of the virtual console prices. Especially by the way they tied up your purchases.
Legit question time:
What are games like these like without a proper d-pad? Would you ideally want something like the pro controller (or fight stick if you're hardcore)?
I'm not sure how complaining in a deals thread is going to help them get their games "appropriately" priced? If you don't want it don't buy it.
The d-pad on the pro controller would obviously be the most ideal way of playing but I can't see having to use an analogue stick making the game unplayable.

For the first part, really anything we do doesn't really matter. Individually we are irrelevant. But opinions are important to others. For example the windows 10 keys on this site that are voted super hot. By your logic people shouldn't "complain" about it, but there will be people that want to know that it's kind of shady and potential risks. Realistically such comments aren't really going to be particularly beneficial or detrimental to MS. Negative opinions help to weigh up if something has drawbacks despite the price. I find them more important than something voted highly mostly due to popularity. Obviously there will be criticism in places that aren't of value. Whether it's a deal, or just a regular product. I want to see opinions and see what agrees with my values.

Thanks for the info on the d-pad though, I do hope to get a switch eventually when it's hopefully in better shape so it's good to know about things to consider.

I don't think they feel the same at all with an analogue stick, also makes it harder too and lastly they get soo much abuse that you can damage or wear out the analogue stick. However also some of the feel is lost simply because you are using wireless controllers because they add a little lag and a modern flat screen television which also adds lag. Many of the best beat em ups feel best emulated on an old original xbox with wired controllers and a CRT tv (0ms input lag) or alternatively a Dreamcast with CRT.
Nintendo is a doing a Super Nintendo mini console this year and wonder if that will actually include many of these great beat em ups like Street fighter II. You'll have a better controller which is wired for lower input lag and I think will deliver a better experience but is only portable in the fact it's reduced size means it will travel easily from house to house to use on a friends tv etc. If it ends up being close to £50 suggested retail discounted to £40 then it will offer a better retro experience than this game especially if it includes 30 titles like the NES classic.https://static.wixstatic.com/media/ca1989_43b401b2713545d88702935c70308ee5~mv2.png/v1/fill/w_498,h_258,al_c,q_90/file.jpg
Ok thanks for the info :D. Though on the topic of the SNES mini I think that's just a rumour at this point. They could just be trying to add focus and work on their virtual console for the switch.

:) It's a hot from me!

Cancelled my order with Nintendo as the extra fiver off on this deal is much more worth it to me than the bundled T-shirt.

It's gonna be a blast reliving the joy on the switch! I had so much fun playing this on my megadrive and snes back in the day. Looking forward to the new features like 'Buddy mode'.

When it hits 199 with a free game I'm on it. Nintendo need to down the prices. You need to take a loss sometimes to come back strong.
I wouldn't hold your breath for that price, you might be waiting a while

i am holding out until Christmas time, when the game line up will be worth it for me.

What do we reckon, £250 bundled with a game for the holiday season?

Yeah, because they are struggling to shift them at current RRP!

I was hoping for around the £250 max mark for release, but with all of the negatives including how much they're charging for their limited selection of games, I quickly decided to hold off from buying this system. Personally I'm not sure what people are interested in when it basically has zelda which is also for the Wii U and then the 2 upcoming big titles are splatoon 2, which wouldn't be a big loss if you have the original, and a mario kart 8 remake.

It's a great system but lacks software and is overpriced. Give it a year or two and it'll be amazing.

if you have a ps3 or 360 its not going to be worth getting, stick with HD Remix
I believe HD remix is on the US store for a couple of quid right now in the flash sale
Look forward to seeing all the people lugging their xbox's and a TV around on the train / aeroplane.

good point

however i was thinking more in terms of playing online at home with an arcade stick

i used take 2 CFW psp's with me on a journey, but no one ends up wanting to play, seems like a good idea in theory but just does not happen

Bought it for £40 (the regret is real) because I wanted it digitally because I wanted to get it then and there. Pretty much not used after the first few weeks
Heat added as this is the best deal for this game currently.
ST3123
Sorry cold from me. Absolutely 100% should have been a pack in game and in no way a full price release. Nintendo always had pack in games until the Switch, now they stop despite the switch coming out at a fairly steep price.
So you are voting cold because you think this game should be free with the console. I think you are on the wrong website because that's not how this one works
reading these comments is what puts people off posting deals, The whole point of the voting system is to vote on if the price is the cheapest around and in return the deal will get hotter the cheaper it is compared to other places. People should not be voting cold because they don't think the game is worth this. We don't care what you think it's about if the price is the cheaper than any other company.
Heat from me as it's the best price around, but I'll play the waiting game for £10.(it may be a long wait)

Best deal on the list, ALBW. Coincidentally it just so happens to be the best game on the list.
Also £11.99 on Argos. It's been around £12 for a year or so, to be fair.

Probably because it's PC. I bet that if it were console, everyone would have went nuts about it!

Bound to be timed exclusive, they've done it before with one of the Lego Dimensions packs
Seems a bit silly. Although it's probably a well thought out pre-excuse for terrible sales. It's weird that they wouldn't even stock it in their own Disney stores in the UK.

I've just had a look, and it seems to be stocked at 4 of the major retailers in America.

Thinking about getting a sd card for my switch but yet to have used all my storage
BT are selling Toshiba 128gb cards for £37 delivered...definitely genuine and no chance of customs fees
Cheap at Cex, if you don't mind, second hand items, though with Cex warranty.
These will pop up in lighting deals on the UK site from time to time, I got one for £29 a few weeks back. So worth keeping an eye out, rather than importing
VAT?

I preordered and in hindsight, probably wouldn't have hurt to wait for a well priced bundle. Aside from Zelda there's not a lot going on.
as much as i want a Switch, I can't justify £300 to play a years old Wii U game. Seems like the Switch is just a slightly faster Wii U? I don't get this console realyl but at £199 I'd give it a pop...not £300
You can also play Zelda BOTW emulated at 4k 60fps which not only looks stunning but feels better at 60fps. Also faster load times, less frame rate issues depending on pc etc. Makes the game more immersive without aliasing and a cleaner resolution. Such is the low performance levels of Nintendo hardware that you can play their latest game emulated pretty much from day one. I'm a wii u owner myself but its pretty obvious both wii u and Switch look total crap compared to the emulated game. Also pc controller better too depending on what controller you use of course but I would definitely say either xbox controller is better than the joycons and new pro pad.

So there are other options.

Mankind Divided is going for 8 quids at 6 months old, this title is 4 years old and was meant to be exclusively developed for the Wii U so can we put this in to perspective please.
Only Nintendo can get a free pass to keep re-packaging antique titles from previous platforms and charging full whack for them on their latest hardware.
It's a decent game yeah but it's a 10 quid game at best,
Why are you so offended by a re-release? They all do it!, (The record industry with its cover versions an re-releases,the Film industry with their endless sado remakes of films that didnt even need remaking in the first place, and endless reboots of franchises like spiderman, batman etc),
Hardly anyone got to play Lego City first time around cos it was a wiiU exclusive, So now its getting another chance on a more (Hopefully) popular platform, Switch has already sold 1.5 million units worldwide in its first week of sale, Beating even the Wii's sales.
If you dont like it comeing out for Switch, good for you!, But what is, wrong with everyone else having the chance to play it now on the other platforms?
its out on Switch,PS4, xbox etc at the publishers choice.
I understand why people are getting upset about the incredibly weak launch (and seemingly for the next few months) lineup. Remasters are a good thing when they're done well, but some are awful and obviously cash grabs. When one the most anticipated games being released for switch is a port of a 3 year old wii u game (Mario kart), you have to ask yourself why that is. All that I see out on this console are ports and retro games, and not even the classics. Even if there was a good collection of virtual console games, that would help. Having said all this I would love a switch, and will be getting one, Zelda looks incredible and the I love the portability. But it's so obvious that they only released the console now so that Zelda could finally be released. Gahhh I don't know what to think anymore. I both love and despise Nintendo

I managed to preorder Mario Kart for £25 from Very (using a £20 off voucher). So that plus a Switch is £305

Great bundle price! Heat!
I really, really hope they do a £299 bundle when Mario Kart comes out at the end of the month...I might finally bite!

To be fair this is still £5.01 over the mentioned budget!

is the code once redeemed tied to the console or the Nintendo ID?
I've just bought a Switch for my son and I, I've set me up first (with a new Nintendo ID) and my son with his existing Nintendo ID (as we have a Wii-U and 3ds already) which account would you redeem it with?


Yes it is, if you want him to be the owner just make sure he's logged in before you redeem the code :D

Exactly the same as above....going to get this for Mario Kart 8 as I was about to buy snipperclips for £17 yesterday....this is a bargain (well a bargain for overpriced controllers). But I love my switch and can't wait to play 4 player mario kart on the go!


Have you checked it's possible to play 4 players MK on one console on the go? I don't think it is, you'd get four postage stamp sized views, one for each driver. You'll need two consoles I think. On the tv, 4 player would be fine.


Its max 4 player per game/console but yeah i wouldn't recommend 4 player on the go as you would be looking at a real small section, its probs better 4 people 4 consoles on the go but if you have the 'switch doubters' that dont have one but wanna try MK probs best on the tv :D

Im so tempted but i have a pro controller, i dont need 3 controllers (possibly 5) "/ i dont have that many friends

Looks great,but so far the games released shocking.Need to be a better planned launch and that awful looking party game they're advertising should be free.
Personally I think Zelda makes up for the lack of games. One of the most amazing games and I'm nowhere near finished over a month later
Sorry but i disagree, IMHO a launch that relies soley on one game is a poorly planned launch, especially considering Nintendo already had great games like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon they could have bolstered the launch with if they had hung on a bit. Dunno why March launch was so important to them, hardly a traditional buying period, can only guess it was to synch it up with Zelda coming out.
Good as Zelda may be, footage looks very good, I have it on Wii U but not started yet, it is but one game and an RPG at that. Much as I like RPGs myself, they are a bit of a niche game and hardly something you can have a quick blast of or show off the console easily with. They needed Mario Kart 8 (and ideally Splatoon) as well at least for showing off the online, on the go and couch multiplayer aspects and as the game already exists on Wii U it wouldn't have been THAT hard to have it there for launch....

Zelda is most definitely not an RPG
It's a deal because they're OOS most places. Zelda is worth the price of the admission alone. My xb1/PS4 have been collecting dust for the last month
This is HOTUKDEALS. Not HOTUKRRPPRICE.

Great console, great game, great price 8)
I disagree on price. But that's only because I want it for around £200 :{
Nintendo Switch costs about £207 to manufacture and Nintendo said that they won't sell it at loss so think about it.
that can't be true re:cost to manufacture, otherwise Nintendo would be making next to nothing once you consider retailer mark ups, I imagine they are selling them to retailers at around the £200 mark max and it probably costing them £100-£150 - also factor in that in the U.S it costs £240 ($300) and there is no way it could be £208 manufacture cost
You imagine Nintendo is selling to retailers at £200? That's a pretty wild imagination and is quite unrealistic. Your estimated cost is half what a reputable site is saying and you know it's a pretty well known fact across the gaming industry that retailers make very little money on game consoles right? The money comes from accessories and software.
it's based on how I know UK retailers mark up - the grocers wouldn't take it for less than £80 margin on £280, hell it would be a tough sell to get them to take it even at that price, obviously different retailers will be on different discounts with Nintendo but for them to get the distribution they do on the switch there is no way they will buying it for more than that, dedicated game websites might make little margin but grocers (and even HMV now) won't stock stuff that doesn't make them a certain margin

How is this even a bundle?! The console itself is worth £280 plus £40 for zelda and you'd be paying the same price even if you got them separately.
If it was £300 that'd make sense but this isn't even a bundle. *~*
The discount only appears if you add both console and game to the basket, so I guess it is a disguised bundle of sorts.

Being the cheapest available doesn't necessarily equate to being a good deal for me. £24 for a Tetris game is an absolute ripoff, so cold from me sorry (nothing personal).

Have Nintendo finally given up on gaming and gone into over priced "fashion".

Slowly, but surely we are seeing the end of Nintendo as a console making super power.

Sad, given that I still miss sega's consoles.


For all the reasons I've seen 'Nintendoomed!' over the years "Because the Nintendo store are offering a freebie with an overpriced Capcom game" is a new one I must say.

I love sf2, but charging more than £18 for this makes Nintendo feel like a scalper/profiteer outfit.


You mean Capcom. It's them who has the surreal sense of humour about the price. It's their games.
some of these guys have no idea. why this is cold il never know.

HOT!
No his fault it's still the cheapest? hot for cheapest deal :)
I'm always up for a bargain and i get everyone's view that this is capcom being greedy but personally the last time i played this game was on my megadrive and snes - both sold now.

So I'm quite excited to pick this up again as i never played the HD remix and from ive read there seems to be new mechanics in this version and not just the colour palette swaps.

There is so little there for early adopters of the Switch, I'm clueless to why people would pay £279.99 for it. Faulty hardware, one good game, no apps, no wi-fi and no e-shop. Fix all this and lower the price and I'll buy one. I do like the idea of a HD portable console that is region free.
Half of what you said is not true. There has been wi-fi and e-shop from the day 1, where did you get that info? And faulty hardware are only isolated issues, as did PS4 and Xbone had at launch. I bought my Switch day 1 and didn't encounter a single issue thus far.
I agree on the games though. Finished Zelda a couple of weeks ago and now there's nothing to play. Summer seems like a perfect time to get the console though. But knowing Nintendo - don't expect a price drops :v
I think once summer comes and MK8 is out I think its going to be even harder than it is now to buy a Switch.

I doubt, it's Nintendo's main revenue right now and if it sells they will make sure it can be found everywhere around. The initial release was very careful due to the failure with Wii U. But that's just my guess.

Depends if you want a choice of thousands of games (GTX1070) or a handful (Switch).

No point them buying a Switch then as the one must own game is a RPG....

I love how the hate on the Switch's price is coming from the same people who are more than willing to shell out £60 annually for a re-skinned CoD/BF or roster-updated FIFA + the in-game purchases.

Not wanting to join the flaming wars because they are pointless, but just thought I would add my 2 cents.

I am far from a Nintendo fanboy as I hated what they did with the Wii U and honestly thought they were losing it. There are also numerous things that I dislike about the Switch - awful online services (using smartphones for chat, wtf!), expensive games and peripherals etc.

That being said, I bought a Switch. For one, it is a console that still wants you to play together in one room, which is pretty rare on other consoles where splitscreen gaming has basically disappeared. Being able to play the same games on my TV and on the go is also nice. I didn't like handhelds previously as when I got home I wanted to be playing games on my TV, not a tiny screen. This lets me get home and carry on my games on the big screen. The Indie support for the Switch is also really nice with numerous really cool titles coming out soon.

It is certainly not for everyone, and is not a direct competitor to dedicated home consoles, but for me it fills a space. I am looking forward to doing split screen Mario Kart, while also being able to do races on the bus on my way to work against AI. Or maybe a few mins of an indie game. And when I have a long journey I can bust out some Zelda.

Anyway, that's about it, not trying to insult anyone, just saying that I feel the Switch was a worthwhile purchase. For the record, my other console is an Xbox One.


Its not flaming wars. it's one oddball who's turbo posting on a shopping website about his inexplicable hatred for a games console.

but what are you going to do with another switch?
There's a big kid in the house and 2 little ones so that's my excuse... Same reason I bought a brand new Wii U with Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 for £150... (Still in its box unopened)... Same as the Mini NES classic...
To be fair each are worth at least what I've paid or more... My feel better comment right there.

Edit: A flawed logic but that's what this site does to you.
but what are you going to do with another switch?
There's a big kid in the house and 2 little ones so that's my excuse... Same reason I bought a brand new Wii U with Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 for £150... (Still in its box unopened)... Same as the Mini NES classic...
To be fair each are worth at least what I've paid or more... My feel better comment right there.

Where did you manage to get that Wii U?
All i know is i get 5 extra metres out of it :)

once the games start coming out these are gonna be sought after i reckon

Ben Heck did a tear down of the Switch and found that it's very likely that because of the modular way it's built, a newer updated version will likely be coming in the future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpSPyW5v8r0&t=5s
Definitely gonna wait till Christmas for a bundle deal and maybe a price drop!

Yeah the fact that the storage is on a separate daughterboard likely means 64 / 128GB version on the way in the future.
Price drop not so sure about though, if demand stays high I wouldn't hold your breath for significant drops this year. Bundles could offer better value though yeah. Surely 1-2 Switch will eventually become a pack-in game like it should've been from the start.

The second wave hitting most stores now. If selling for profit, be quick.
Is there really profit to be had? Final selling prices on eBay don't seem high enough to be worth the hassle once you factor in selling fees
You can make £20 profit just by walking into CEX. Worth it considering it's no effort whatsoever.
WOW a whole £20 profit which you need to spend nearly £300 to get. sorry but anyone who sells it for just £20 profit has some serious problems.
Minus any traveling costs, it beats bank and ISA interest rates.
Exactly 6.66% is nothing to scoff at with interest rates as low as they are. You don't even need the initial 300 as you order on a credit card. Why you would want to part with your Switch is another question entirely though :).

its RRP so not really a deal but a good heads up for those who want one, shame nintendo are doing there usual thing, with releasing limited stock so it looks like its selling a lot better than it is, before anyone starts i didn't say it is selling poorly, just that this is what and other companys to a lesser extent like to do too increase recognition etc. so not voting either way.
i'm happy to wait till more games out, a decent bundle and the games are priced cheaper, its strange with the wii u games being a little cheaper at times than ps4 or Xbox one games, Nintendo fans used to moan about the price of ps4/xbox games, but now games are more expensive on the switch its OK now, have to love the double standard.
Producing multiple millions of anything to be shipped & sold worldwide comes with many logistical challenges. The idea that it is purposely short stocked is just because someone realised how that can positively affect people's desire to purchase said item and they automatically assumed that must be the reason. Correlation does not imply causation. If you actually look into the economics it's rather complicated as to whether such a tactic would even be beneficial or detrimental given they actually make money from software sales and would be able to accrue interest & reinvest capital from larger net sales.
yes but nintendo take it to another degree, that could produce more without having the effects you say, they do with a lot of stuff limited edition games and amiibo and at the end of the day the only people this benefits are scalpers.
It's the fastest selling Nintendo console ever, it's also the fastest selling console of all time in Europe.
I think they have done a remarkable job of filtering them through considering the demand. It's a 100x better situation than the Wii which was impossible to get hold of until 6 months after release.
yes but thats only the stock that retailers have to sell, the statement makes it sound like its selling better than the wii or ps2 which it is not. don't get me wrong i want it to do well, but a big difference between what stock they are selling and total sales. lets hope it can have the sales of the wii coupled with a great lineup of gameshttp://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-03-07-nintendo-trumpets-record-switch-saleshttp://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-03-07-nintendo-trumpets-record-switch-sales

At the moment, every single game for it is available on the wii u or on another platform (running better). However people wouldn't care about that much.


With the greatest respect, the Wii U is old technology. Besides, the Switch is much more appealing due to being a home console/handheld console.

In my view anyway.

...Nintendo are now essentially third place in the console market.
Some would argue that Nintendo have already exited the console market given that Switch, mockingly referred to as Nintendo Shield, is a mobile device. Yes, it can also be connected to a TV but so can most smarphones, tablets, Nvidia Shield and numerous handheld consoles so let's not pretend that its claims to be a console are anything more than marketing persuasion.
With Switch, iOS, Android and 3DS, Nintendo is now a company dedicated exclusively to mobile platforms. Whether they ever attempt to re-enter the console market remains to be seen. I hope they do because what Sony and Microsoft have to offer holds no interest for me.
I hope they don't. I don't want all the great 3rd party titles to be bogged down by yet another platform to optimise for.
Nintendo are their own market.
Ditto. Regardless of whether I buy a Switch I definitely hope to see Nintendo one day release a proper console again. Sadly, if Switch does well (over the longer term, not just right now) then they'll presumably have little financial incentive to do so.

Wasn't games like Last of Us, Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider all full price when launched?
Last of us was 44.99 when first launched on the PS4
http://www.hotukdeals.com/search?action=search&keywords=Last+of+us+remastered&type=1&category=19&sort_type=submitted&date_range=&page=13
What about digital though?
If we're comparing apples with oranges here, then I'm sure a lot of people have got Mario Kart pre ordered for about £38 from Amazon for the physical version
Amazon is actually charging £40 for MK8 - but only if you're a Prime member. Otherwise, cheapest is £41.99... GAME are charging around £50.
The Last of Us never topped £40 at launch and was a proper remaster, with extensive work done into justifying its cost. MK8 is a lazy port job with the only reason justifying its cost being that it has "Nintendo" slapped on the front cover.
I'm not saying that MK8 is a bad game. Far from it, as it's very much one of the very best games available on Wii U, but if you look at any of the other pre-order prices on competing platforms (Crash Bandicoot and Bulletstorm are both posted today as a comparison) then you'll realise that there is no justifiable reason as to why Nintendo "remasters" (although I'd be inclined to call them straight up ports) need to cost that much.
Skyrim and Bioshock never cost that much either... And look as to how much content those games had within them, and how much work was done in justifying their (barely) AAA price-tag.
I'm pretty sure some people got it less than £40 using the big thanks code promotion on Amazon.
Like I said, and someone else pointed out. Why compare digital prices to physical? Everyone knows physical is always going to be cheaper and have the better pre order prices.
Just the standard Switch deal bashing that kicks off on here
I wasn't comparing physical to digital... I'm not a fan of digital and try to avoid the format on most occasions.

You misconstrue the Switch deal bashing to imply that there is some inherent agenda behind peoples motives for not liking Nintendo deals... But the truth of the matter is that there are plenty of Nintendo games that have gone on to receive considerable heat - if only because they are priced appropriately, and because their inherent worth justifies the price tag.

The Switch in most cases... doesn't. And that is why most of its deals go freezing cold.

Only the most deluded of fanboys would defend Nintendo on its unashamed attempt in conning Switch owners. Sony aren't doing it - with Crash Bandicoot being a very recent example. MS aren't doing it - with the Halo MC Collection being another example. Even third party publishers don't really do it - case in point: the Arkham trilogy, Skyrim, Bioshock trilogy... I could go on.

Nintendo have always charged ridiculous amounts. Look at their EShop VC Snes prices as an example. Failing that, take a look at what they charged for the Zelda remasters on Wii U. And failing that, just take a cursory glance at their 3DS prices.

There is no reason as to why Nintendo should be charging so much for their games - save for the fact that they are an incredibly greedy company, and because they know that they have millions of fans who are prepared to put up with paying that amount.

But to be honest... it's that attitude that has contributed towards why Nintendo are now essentially third place in the console market. Where most respectable third parties aren't prepared to touch them. And whilst Nintendo fans won't care, it's worth bearing in mind that at one point, the company owned 90% of the console market. Let that sink in for a second... 90%. And look where they are now... They made their bed and are now sleeping in it. With everyone and their grandma citing them as glorified "has-beens".

EDIT: People might have got it less than £40 using the Big Thanks promotion code, but you specifically stated "ordered for about £38". And no, that still doesn't excuse what is currently a ridiculously high pre-order price.

Why buy digital? You can't really sell the game when finished and it's useless if you are a collector. I don't get it. Great game but not sure if worthwhile getting if you have the WiiU version.

Why would someone go to the trouble of posting a deal when they are clearly doing it just because they have an axe to grind? Can't that vitriol be vented in other Switch-related deals?

It did the last time the deal went live but as it was next day delivery they sent them out. It will be based purely on stock that's why i said if you really want one then pay the extra £1 for DPD to push in the queue.
They're actually in stock at the Nintendo website for RRP with an extra years warranty at the moment anyway so no need for codes that may or may not be honoured.

Given that the Switch version of Zelda is a half-baked port of the Wii U game, I'm going to wait for the definitive edition when Nintendo decides to re-release the game on PS4 and XBox in order to enable it to actually run at a semi-respectable frame-rate. In the meantime however, I've always got my Wii U original...

nintendo switch logo Introducing the Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch arrived on March 1st 2017. After years of anticipation, the successor to the popular Wii U had finally arrived, but has it lived up to the hype? There’s no doubt that the Switch is an imaginative, ground-breaking gaming system, with a completely revamped controller and some of the best motion capture systems ever seen.

This buyer’s guide should help you decide whether the Nintendo Switch is the games console for you, and how to find the biggest Nintendo Switch savings.

Nintendo Switch: Impressive Entertainment at Home and On the Go

Nintendo has been releasing home entertainment products for over thirty years. Starting with the Game and Watch in 1980, they released the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1985, the handheld Gameboy in 1989, then the Super Nintendo (SNES) in 1991. The Nintendo 64 followed in 1996, the Gameboy Colour in 1998, then the Gameboy Advance and the GameCube in 2001. But it was the unveiling of the Nintendo Wii in 2006 that really laid the foundations for the Nintendo Switch.

The Wii Remote was the first mainstream system to offer motion capture technology, enabling users to play tennis or join virtual exercise classes. It was followed by the Wii U in 2012, which refined the technology, making it more powerful and rivalling Sony and Microsoft’s systems in terms of graphical power.

Finally, in 2015 Nintendo announced that the Wii U would be replaced by the ‘NX’. It took a further two years of refinement and development until the Nintendo Switch arrived, representing a blend between handheld and home-based gaming systems that had never been seen before.

How Does the Nintendo Switch Work?

What do Nintendo mean when they say that the Switch is a hybrid system? Isn’t the Switch just another games console with a handheld controller that hooks up to your TV screen?

Actually, it’s quite different. The Nintendo Switch has three main elements that make it unlike any other home entertainment console.

The console itself is the first element. This can be hooked up to a normal TV and used like a Wii or a PlayStation. However, this isn’t the only way it can be used. If you want to use it with your TV, you can attach the console to the second element, the docking station. But it can also be used like a tablet anywhere you like (though you’ll need to charge it periodically).

The third element in the Nintendo Switch package is the Joy-Con controller. This peripheral isn’t like anything gamers have seen before. The standard direction pad and buttons are familiar, but the way that the Joy-Con attaches to the side of the console is less ordinary. By attaching the Joy-Con, users can turn the mobile console into a gaming tablet of incredible power. At the same time, the Joy-Con is adapted for wireless control and motion capture, and provides some of the most impressive tactile feedback yet experienced. It can also be connected to a grip accessory, turning it into a normal gamepad. It’s an impressively versatile piece of engineering.

Nintendo have come up with three different ways to use their console, all of them with different needs in mind:

  • TV mode - With the Switch attached via an HDMI cable to any standard flat screen TV.
  • Handheld mode - With the Joy-Cons attached to the side of the console, allowing you to play your favourite games wherever you go.

By now, the hybrid nature of the Nintendo Switch should be fairly clear. For the first time, a system can be played on large flat-screen TVs, both with wireless motion capture controllers and standard gamepads, or taken around the home as a mobile tablet. In theory, this makes the Switch a promising gaming platform and a worthy successor to the Wii range, but do its specifications back up the imaginative thinking that created it?

Nintendo Switch: Commercial

How Does Nintendo Switch Online Work?

Using the Nintendo Switch also has an important online element: The Nintendo Switch Online Ordering Service which arrives in autumn 2017, with trials starting from March 2017.

If you intend to enjoy multiplayer games on your Switch, this is the service for you. Initially free of charge if you have a Nintendo Account, it will become a paid subscription after formally launching, and you can expect to find plenty of Nintendo Switch Online offers at HotUKDeals when this becomes a reality.

Additionally, Nintendo Switch Online features a few bonuses for users to sweeten the deal. For example, it will feature a smartphone app, enabling users to organise gaming sessions with their friends. You will also get a free SNES or NES retro-download every month, as well as exclusive offers on Nintendo Switch content; so it will probably be worth signing up.

Nintendo Switch: Basic Specifications

As with all gaming systems, hardcore players will want to know a little about what’s inside the Nintendo Switch before handing over any cash. With that in mind, here are some of the key specifications:nintendo switch console

  • Dimensions: 10.2 x 23.9 x 1.39cm (when the Joy-Con controllers are attached to the sides of the console)
  • Weight: 297g
  • Screen resolution: 1280x720p, capacitive touchscreen
  • Screen size: 6.2 inches
  • Memory: 32GB
  • CPU: Customised NVIDIA Tegra processor
  • Connectivity: Wi-fi IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1
  • Max video output: 1920x1080 at 60 fps (TV mode), 1280x720 (Tablet mode)
  • Connections: USB type-C, Stereo out, HDMI, Nintendo Switch game card slot
  • Battery life: Over 6 hours, with a 3-hour charging period

These specifications compare well with other consoles on the market, although Nintendo haven’t been forthcoming with detailed information about the CPU and GPU speeds. For example, the PS4 Pro has 8GB of RAM, well below the Nintendo Switch (and weighs about 3.3kg - much heavier). The only shortcomings of the Switch tend to be in terms of graphical performance. You can expect the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S to outperform it when handling first person shooters and other demanding titles. However, as these aren’t a staple of Nintendo’s range this probably won’t be a deal breaker.

What Nintendo Switch Bundles are Available?

Nintendo hasn’t just released its innovative new console onto the market on its own. Buyers can choose between a range of different bundles when making their purchase and it’s important to choose one that fits your budget and needs. Here are the major options:

  • The Basic Nintendo Switch Bundle - Comes with the Nintendo Switch console, the docking station and the Joy-Con controllers, and is available in grey or with blue and red Joy-Cons.
  • Legend of Zelda Bundles - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most exciting Switch releases, and is included in bundles of its own. If you want to save money on one of the console’s leading games, it makes sense to purchase a themed bundle which will often come with extra controllers and accessories like carry cases and screen protectors.
  • Mario Kart Bundles - Mario Kart Deluxe 8 is another exciting title (and great for families who want a fun multiplayer game to start with). Again, you can find bundles with extra controllers, which may be a good choice if you have a large group of children (or friends) who will want a piece of the action.
  • 1-2-Switch Bundles - 1-2-Switch is a great introduction to the features of the Joy-Con controller, as well as being a lot of fun. If you want to get the most out of your console and learn the ropes quickly, a bundle featuring the game could be just what you need.zelda breath of the wild

Always remember to shop around for bundles before making a purchase. Just because titles are bundled with the console doesn’t mean that you are guaranteed a good price. Often, you’ll find that buying the basic console is far cheaper. Then, by hunting around at the HotUKDeals listings, you can find cut-price deals on games like Zelda or Mario Kart, allowing you to pay far less than you would for normal bundles. So shop smart, and don’t be impulsive. You’ll probably find deals for the products you need if you look around.

Highlights from the Nintendo Switch Gaming Range

One of the key things about any console is the range of games available for it. But how does the Nintendo Switch measure up on this score? There are certainly some exciting games either available or on the horizon. Here are some of the favourites right now:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Zelda is a beloved Nintendo franchise and one of the most famous RPG series in history. The most recent incarnation sees Link battling against nemesis Calamity Ganon across a massive game world. In Breath of the Wild, Link has more terrain and dungeons to explore, more people to meet, enemies to vanquish and quests to complete than ever before. Universally praised, it’s one of 2017’s essential games and you can only purchase it for the Nintendo Switch or the Wii U. It’s a great reason for non-Nintendo owners to invest in a Switch. However, if you are a Wii U owner, there might be less urgency. Both versions are graphically similar and offer the same vast game world.
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Mario and Luigi have been locked in racing contests ever since the first Mario Kart emerged for the SNES in 1991, and every version has offered new features and innovations. The 8th version was actually released for the Wii U in 2014, but Nintendo have produced a ‘Deluxe’ version for the Switch with extra courses, vehicles, weapons and a new battle mode.
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - A gaming sensation since its release in 2011, Skyrim is coming to the Nintendo Switch and promises to make the most of its immersive controls and mobile gaming capabilities. Now, when you enter the Elder Scrolls universe, you can continue to play whether you are on the beach, on the train or in your bed. With months of gameplay on offer, Skryim will surely be a Nintendo Switch essential.
  • Super Mario Odssey - One of the Top games is another exclusive title to the Nintendo Switch. In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario leaves the Mushroom kingdom and explores in sandbox-style the Nintendo world.

Those are three of the most eagerly anticipated Nintendo Switch titles and more are in the pipeline, including strategy games like Constructor, platformers like 1001 Spikes, and racing games like Fast RMX. However, while there’s a long list of scheduled releases, the actual selection of Nintendo Switch games is very small. Beyond Zelda and 1-2-Switch, very few games have been made available as yet, leading to sharp criticism of Nintendo’s development policies.

When the trickle of games becomes a flood (mid to late 2017), the Nintendo Switch will come into its own, with a focus on high quality RPGs, puzzle games, sports titles and racing games. But until then, it may be sensible for Wii U, PlayStation or Xbox owners to hold off. All their systems have massive game libraries and a continuing stream of releases. Even if they aren’t as technically innovative as the Nintendo Switch, that’s a big plus.

For Wii U owners, it’s also important to note that the Switch is not backwards compatible with your console. This means that your lovingly assembled collection of games won’t work on your new system and you’ll have to wait for new titles to arrive (or keep two consoles working in parallel, a clumsy solution).

3DS owners might also be thinking about making the "Switch" to Nintendo's new console. Should they do so? Possibly, but Nintendo has made it clear that the Switch is not designed to be a 3DS replacement. The 3DS is more compact, has better battery life and is lighter - all of which make it preferable for mobile gaming. So, if you already have a 3DS and only really use it on the move, the Switch won't really make sense unless you have the money and desire to use both simultaneously.

What Kind of People Will the Nintendo Switch Appeal To?

This is the really important question, but it’s not yet an easy one to answer. Why not yet? Because the full potential of the Nintendo Switch hasn’t become clear. It could be widely embraced and lead to a revolution in home and mobile gaming, or it could be shunned and overwhelmed by new Xbox or Sony systems.

Assuming the Nintendo Switch performs as well as the Wii and Wii U, it will almost certainly be ideal for families with younger children. Nintendo’s titles are always pitched at younger gamers, with less violence and gore and accessible gameplay. They are also usually excellent multiplayer experiences, making the Nintendo Switch a possible focal point for group family fun.

If you are the kind of gamer who lusts after death matches and multiplayer carnage, the PS4 Pro or Xbox One S could be a better fit. There’s little chance of games like Resident Evil or Call of Duty carrying over to the Switch, or similarly adrenaline-fuelled games being developed.

Graphically, the Nintendo style won’t appeal to everyone either. For some fans, Link and Mario are like members of the family. For others, cartoony visuals and quirky sound effects won’t cut it. Make sure you are the kind of person who is in tune with Nintendo’s aesthetic before making a purchase.

Accessories to Enhance Your Nintendo Switch Experience

One of the important things to recognise about the Nintendo Switch is the importance of accessories. You simply can’t get everything out of the system unless you have a set of Joy-Con controllers, the docking station and the cables needed to hook everything together, and not all of these accessories are included in basic bundles. Here are some vital accessories that all Nintendo Switch purchasers will want to think about:

  • The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller - Essentially a classic-style gamepad, the Pro Controller may be useful for experienced gamers who can’t get to grips with the Joy-Con system. Includes advanced rumble and motion capture technology, making it fully compatible with the latest Switch titles.
  • Joy-Con Charging Grips - This handy accessory allows to clip together the left and right Joy-Cons, and also allows you to charge those controllers during play - ideal for long RPG exploration sessions.
  • Joy-Con Straps - These wrist straps attach to the Joy-Con controller, making it easier to handle and protect from damage during games that rely on motion capture.
  • Carrying Cases - The Nintendo Switch console can be vulnerable to scratches and damage, particularly when you use it extensively as you travel. The Nintendo Carry Case provides excellent padding for users to need to play as they move.
  • The Joy-Con Wheel - This handy controller allows you to place your Joy-Con controllers in a steering wheel which you can then use in Mario Kart Deluxe or other racing titles, adding a whole new gaming dimension.

These accessories aren’t always cheap to purchase. If you buy a basic package, you can easily run up large bills by adding extra accessories on an ad hoc basis, so try to find combo deals or bundles that save money. There should be plenty to choose from at the HotUKDeals Nintendo Switch listings.

How and When to Make Your Nintendo Switch Purchase

If you’ve made up your mind to buy a Nintendo Switch, the next step is the crucial one: finding the very best deals around. It’s easy to pay over the odds for gaming consoles, even from reputable companies, so be careful when you choose your bundle.

The first place to look is the Nintendo website, not to make a purchase, but to double check that the Nintendo Switch meets your needs. When you’re certain that it will cut it, head over to the HotUKDeals Nintendo Switch listings, where you will find the latest deals from the UK’s largest gaming companies.

You’ll see Nintendo Switch bundles from GAME, Currys, Tesco, Amazon sellers, eBay merchants, Very and Smyths - with grey and coloured versions all available to choose from. Check for cheap Zelda bundles as well, as you can save plenty of money by buying the console and the game together.

Remember to search for bundles with the right mix of accessories as well. If you want to play with five people, you’ll need extra Joy-Con controllers. If you intend to spend hours on Mario Kart Deluxe, the steering wheel could be essential. Shop around, wait a few days and see which deals come up. You’ll probably find a saving that cuts the price of upgrading to the Nintendo Switch.

However, you may also want to delay for longer. Black Friday in November is always a great time to find gaming deals. By then the range of Nintendo Switch games will be far higher, while the online multiplayer service will have started up as well. If you are upgrading from a Wii U, autumn could be the cheapest and best time to do so.

Either way, you’ll find a constant stream of the very best Nintendo Switch discounts when you bookmark the console’s HotUKDeals listings.
