Good game but the designers could of done more with the map features showing where the gold bricks red bricks, aliens are etc.
Although the console is quite difficult to obtain at certain stores due to stock. I did manage to get one at the weekend (collect from store, delivered there the day after the order.)
If you purchase the console at Argos (currently £279.99) you also get £10 off when buying this game with it.

Hot price spotting. Poor port.
Agreed found this to be pretty glitchy, especially when playing co-op but my 4 year old loves it, still a great price

I ordered Arms for Nintendo Switch last night using the code but checking my bank account this morning reveals that there are 2 amounts of £39.99 pending to be taken from my account by Tesco Direct. Has anyone experienced this before with them? Will it sort itself out?


Yes will sort itself out and will only charge one amount, I remember had a similar query a few years ago and was explained to me that's just how their system works and the second amount is a shadow transaction. Bit confusing but check your account in a few days and the additional £39.99 shadow pending transaction will be removed.

You should be able to add offer codes and clubcard points at the checkout stage. If you're not getting the option, you might not have your clubcard account linked.
it only has the option for clubcard vouchers

I guess that's what I meant. I don't know what you have to do for your points to turn to vouchers, check your clubcard account.

Expired??
Pre order for 12th July !!! Do they take money when you order or on despatch?
Careful if buying games from Tesco. Not worth the saving. Still have had no games turn up at all and they take your money. Tempted to cancel and order from Amazon instead.

Edit: Games arrived 5 days after console. Not at all great but they did arrive :).

All this talk of the left joycon and screen scratching has put me off a bit, I'm going to wait until we have a confirmed refinement in the wild I think. Heat for the price though.
Wary of all the boogey man stories but not the harsh fact there are literally no games on it? You sound like me. Got it day one, haven't played it more than 5 minutes (honestly, not joking) and I own 4 games for it.
Finished zelda on the wii u though.
To be fair to it I think it's had one of the better recent launches in terms of software, (not a particularly high bar, granted) although I, like you, played Zelda on the U. Coming out with one of, if not the game of the year as you're day one is a pretty strong way for any console to announce itself, no?
Not really. If it's a game available on your own console from a previous generation. But we're not working in real world logic terms here, we're working with nintendo they get a pass.
If the xbox one were to be released with halo 4 as it's first game would it still be a good idea?
Yeah Zelda is a nice game, but game of the year? Not by a long shot. Only if you haven't played horizon zero dawn, nioh, resident evil 7, nier automata, persona 5. Especially nier automata and persona 5.
I am just as much of a fan of the xbox, ps4 and switch so I try not to let impartiality cloud my judgement.
If you want my advice, trust me, buy the switch, just not yet.
Horizon Zero Dawn is horrifically over rated, imho.
Haha, I've played most of those games and BOTW is on another level. It's almost impossible to do a direct comparison. Zelda is in the same league as GTA 5, Mass Effect 2 and HL2, itsa once in a generation type of game. Whereas half those titles you mentioned are good but they are hardly genre defining.
Game of the year for sure.

Yeah almost makes up for two world wars and the holocaust, it's so historically monumental. *rolls eyes*

chill, oversensitives, just joking.

Held off on the pro controller til now for a price drop. Aint happening, bar £5 here and there. This i like. Heat
Think Tesco will be getting this in, if so there's £10 off £75 or £5 off £40, might be worth holding off?
Is this automatic, or is there a code?
Tesco Direct code that you apply, it's valid for a while still yet I think, at least until the start of next month?

I did that too, but won't be selling my old one. My siblings have been complaining about the joy-cons disconnecting (something I never seem to have happen to me) so this should make them happier (though I will always be using the splatoon one as it's awesome)

So glad I use my Switch as a handheld only. When you start adding pro controllers at £65 and docks at £80, it makes an already pricy console look uncompetitive against Xbox/PS.
The console comes with a dock so you don't need to add £80 for it. You can buy an extra one for £80 but it isn't necessary. It's important to keep a realistic narrative when it comes to price. Consoles are expensive things but I don't see the need to artificially inflate that cost just to make a point.
And controllers are an obscene price this generation right across the board. More than £30-£35 for a controller on any console is repugnant.
Hardly artificially inflating (I did say "docks" plural) and if you really want to get picky, the pro controller is not necessary either as the console also comes with a DIY version. And I am being realistic. I'm a big Nintendo fan and I've been buying Switch stuff these past couple of months. It's pricy full stop. For that matter 3DS games seen to have gone up (£30-£40 for new releases). I'm sure it was £30 tops a year ago. Anyway, I'm also buying Xbox stuff for my son, and my point was the Xbox controllers and games are a lot cheaper for comparable items.

Still not convinced by your argument. A pro controller is necessary if you want extra players (a common expense on any console); an extra dock is not something that many will be looking to purchase as it's purely a luxury item - if you're going to include it in the mounting console costs then why not include screen protectors and skins for the console/controllers?

Consoles are expensive (as we've both said) but it's best to look at the realistic costs rather than lumping in everything that is available for a console. To lump everything in together is to provide a skewed interpretation of a console's total cost. And I'm not sticking up for Nintendo here, I'm saying that it's all too easy to create a false narrative about a console on sites like this. The Switch is brand new and so we're all having to pay brand new prices - it just means that we have to be more discerning when choosing games/accessories.

As for 3DS games, I think the apparent price increase is coming from retailers taking advantage of a console that's winding down to wring out a few extra pennies. I was looking at The Game Collection for some 3DS releases and baulked at the £35 price tag. But found the same games for £27/28 at Base. Games always hit a premium price at the beginning and the end of a console's life.


Console comes with 2 joycons which can be used as single controllers on every multiplayer game I've played. I agree an extra dock is completely unnecessary, don't understand why anyone would want 1.

As for the pro controller I've heard it is phenomenal. DLC podcasters were saying it is the best controller they have ever used. Even vs the £100+ premium controllers on current gen consoles. I'm certainly getting 1 as soon as it comes in stock at work so I get some discount

I remember paying £40 for this. Now I don't play it anymore because I got back into zelda and now they've released minecraft (which I've played non-stop all week. Waiting forward to when it tells me how many hours I've played :D )

it's a good game, plays well on switch but loading times are slow


I 100% agree. And when you start it up you have to wait like 5 mins for them to get through all the pointless pictures :/
Good price. I found the loading times to not be too bad. Sure they are long. But not often frequent enough to bother me. The open world is all transverse-able in a single load.
Good price. Need Tesco or Argos to match this price so I can spend my vouchers.
Loading times were always bad on the Wii U original. That funky 70s music starts wearing a bit thin after a minute of waiting for something to happen... but it's still a lot of fun

I have a couple of these - great switches.

Yes they are only 10/100 but they have gigabit uplinks so you can link them plus have a spare gigabit port to add to other gigabit switches.

I got mine so I can segment my network with Vlan tagging - my stepson is on his own segment and has no access to the main network, my CCTV cameras are isolated to another vlan and the house links to the workshop between the two switches.

All the fast gigabit devices are on separate switches.

These are a nice cheap way to get into managed switches and play with vlans.
The SFP uplinks had me interested, but 100Mbps kills it for me.
Could be a good fit if you have lots of sensors or IoT devices perhaps?

At home I have two Zyxel GS1900-24E fanless Gbit switches, bought for £68 last year. They have LACP [spec here] They run a little warm, but no problems at all.
My core servers are linked with Mellanox 10Gb point to point as 10Gb switches are still too expensive.

A good price for a basic 10/100 switch
My advice would be to pay extra and get a GB switch.
10/100 is really not worth installing these day.

Is it cheaper somewhere else? Can't see why its cold. Cheap for a switch game. But i bet by the end of the year this will be around £15, like all these skylanders games. Still the price right now seems decent.

Agree First Direct and HSBC have the worst mobile banking app. It's ridiculous, reading the reviews on the App Store for the HSBC app you'd think they pushed their own staff to download it and rate it as 5 stars.
Can't do proper banking without going on their desktop site.
Good deal though.
I suppose none of you have tried M&S bank?
and that includes not only the app but also the internet banking!
Not surprised. Guess who owns M&S Bank?
Yep that's right. HSBC.

That's right but even the two can't compare (i.e. HSBS is great comparing to M&S) ...

Moved there for the incetive and it's sooo painful, can't wait to switch again!

I went through a lot of banks in the process (haven't tried FD yet and maybe a few others) and I think M&S is the worst bank ever (after yourkshire bank) ... :)

I've got a quick Q about the bank account switch process.
I have 5 current accounts with Halifax and Bank of Scotland under one internet banking login.
If I fill in the form to swap would it swap just the single bank account I enter or would it try to end all my current accounts with my current bank? Seems sort of obvious but I'd be worried it would close them all.
It obviously shuts down only the account you switch from , details of which you give them during the switching process , (account number etc) .
I would have thought common sense should have told you this , lol.
It's not really THAT obvious is it. The incentive sounds like it's to entice you to leave your current bank.
supermann
We were discussing the effect of closure of old accounts on credit scores/ratings.
If the account is not recorded by any credit reference agencies then yes it's not going to affect anything but that is pretty obvious and is not what we were really talking about in the first place.

Yes but the suggestion was made (whether by you or someone else I do not recall) that the only reason my credit rating was not harmed was because I had this old account. All I'm saying is that I don't think so because the reference agencies don't seem to know it exists.
supermann
I stated earlier (and you quoted me on it) that when I closed an old account it had a very significant effect on my rating. It is possible that this account closure was not the main problem but that I had switched and opened a brand new account that had no payment history.
Fair enough. What sort of dive did your rating take (or did you just get refused credit you were expecting to get)?

You're right that it's a complex business and it's not helped by the fact lenders never explain themselves when rejecting.

This is just what I need! If only pro controller would fit :( voted heat anyways
It looks like it could fit a pro controller in it :)
Just received my case and it is big enough to also fit pro controller in it and more! Don't have the pro controller yet myself to try it out but can post photos to show it can fit it. Its compact and is definitely worth the price. Ideal for transportation and all the fellow travellers out there who want to take the whole rig on a trip :) glad I bought it.

No idea why you would want to carry the dock around with you, but heat for the price if it's useful for someone.

I can confirm that Revolut works - I just set up a new Nintendo account and chose South Africa as my country (already did this to get Puyo Puyo Tetris from America cheap).

Loaded my Revolut card and used that to pay, £15.19 for it as of today. Worked just fine, no VPN or address details needed.

anyone know if there will be a physical copy of this game on the switch? had enough with downloadable games.
No, there won't be a physical copy. But why have you had enough of downloadable games?
That's incorrect- they stated a physical copy of the game will be available at a later date.
StolenDiagram
Mine doesn't, but that isn't the issue with most console E-shops. The problem is that the shop won't accept payment from a card not registered to an address based in country you're buying from. For example if this was on PSN and you wanted to buy from their Canadian store, your card would need to be registered to a Canadian address. Does it not work like that on switch?

Some people it works for, some it doesn't. Really hit and miss

This runs horrendously even on PS4 and Xbox One. I'd be very wary of how it will run on the Switch which isn't as powerful.


What's the game actually like played through tales of the borderlands through ps plus enjoyed that not a fan of the original game


the first episode was free on Xbox a little while ago, I enjoyed it, didn't have any problems with it, ran fine, wouldn't pay £18 for the series though...

On Switch they can get away with running it 720p docked and even less undocked though.

"The replacement unit didn’t have the extra foam, but appears to have a different internal board, leading to speculation that Nintendo may be fixing the problem on the manufacturing side with new parts."

anyway to find out if these had weak signal problems on the left joy-con?
That was a software update released 48 hours after Switch Launch - Just had to re-sync controllers after update.
It was a hardware issue, not software

Yes its the amount of hardware in the left Joycon blocking the signal.

What I mean't is they improved the connectivity issue within 48 hours with a Firmware update.

Hardware issue that still stands on mine if I actually try to use the joycon grip. Fortunately I have a pro controller for TV play, so not been a massive issue

Switch version will now only be running at 720p, according to the developers.
If you bought a switch expecting 1080P 60 frames a second games, you bought the wrong console.
Emm, games on the Switch do run/will run 1080p/60 - Splatoon 2 and ARMS two examples.

Yes I understand this. My point is people who picked up a switch aren't or shouldn't be expecting all games to be 1080/60. So it should come as no shock this is 720.

It can't run indie games at 1080p yet people are expecting ports of current gen games like RDR2 and Destiny 2 on Switch. Lol.

Good Price.
Can't grumble about £58.93 for technically two controllers with HD rumble.
PS4 motion controllers are still around this price.
Obviously using them as two controllers is subpar. Of course having it as an option is nice, but I'd hardly call 60 quid for them as ideal. People are entitled to have their own separate opinions, but when people say things like that it seems like people are trying to force nintendo in a good light rather than actually believing it. Though if you're buying extra controllers, effectiveness may not be your priority and you can buy grips to make them a bit better.

Well I cant find them cheaper anywere else unfortunately. Put it like this, the way I determine if something is worth the cost to me is how often will I use it and for how long.

Equivalent £58 - easily spend that in 2 hours at a restaurant dining for 2 on an evening and have nothing to show for it the day after.

Thats just my way of justifying purchases to myself X) Can understand not everyone will look at it in the same light.

Was it ever out of stock anywhere?
The the lack of games means other than the initial release purchases I doubt there's a queue of people lining up to buy now.
No never, I don't understand the back in stock posts. Amazon pre-orders sold out but you could pre-order elsewhere. HMV had it when others "sold out" Amazon got more stock and then Nintendo sold direct. There has never at one point been a stage the console was not available from a reputable retailer.
Sorry where is it in stock then?
There are the odd occasions that amazon get them in and then like this tesco will get some but they they sell out again.
I've just checked the following and all out of stock

Obviously I haven't checked every retailer that might sell them but on the whole there is very limited stock and as soon as someone gets them in they are selling out again.

Also in stock at the dreaded shopto http://www.shopto.net/nintendo/switch/SWHW02-nintendo-switch-neon-red-neon-blue
Yeah that's a bundle tho so you can't buy the console on its own. I think the point being made is that it has actually been out of stock for the majority of the time since it was released - i.e. it might come into stock somewhere but it generally sells out soon after. Saying that, I don't particularly see the point of posting that it's in stock at a particular retailer.
Shopto is console only in stock. Point I was making is it is never out of stock but I was proved wrong for a short period where It did actually go out of stock. Seems they are back and coming back soon to other retailers. I personally am wating for a price drop, I think Nintendo are asking way too much. I can't get what I need from it for under £430. I will get one when it hits sub £225 for console and a game.
Ok, but the fact there is currently only one online retailer - shopto - which has stock of the console available to order (discounting game as they are forcing bundles) - & shopto only have the neon available as the grey is oos - doesn't really suggest they are coming back into stock elsewhere. It suggests that it's still fairly difficult to get hold of, particularly if you want to buy from a particular retailer. There is either a very limited supply or the switch is selling fairly well so far.
Personally, I bought mine second hand but basically new with Zelda for £250 on gumtree which seemed reasonable to me. You can wait for the console & a game for £225 if you like - there's no real reason to expect that to happen any time soon but I guess you don't mind waiting anyway.

True, I say it is coming back in stock soon because Amazon have on their listing more stock on 25th. Seems you got a good deal. I don't mind waiting, I have a feeling it will be that price a few months after christmas when sales slow and software rises. All the best.

My arms has been dispatched by Very. Hopefully should expect delivered tomorrow
It's a shame I went for Arms, I played the test punch and didn't enjoy it at all. I cancelled my order but I guess I will lose the discount.
Just used this on splatoon 2 pre order, but am a bit confused by their system. What did people see on "my orders" after using a code with an order? I just see splatoon 2 listed as full price on my orders. No mention of the code anywhere.

All sorted now

My Base copy came on Friday, enjoying it so far. But only been able to play for an hour or so. Nice that the sleeve can be reversed for a slightly alternate cover!
Was interested in this, wonder why there has been low stock. Don't want to be paying £48 for it.

Got an email from Amazon today (on release date) saying "We're still trying to obtain the following item..." very disappointed. surely they would have known yesterday so i could have ordered it from base instead.

I got the same email. I complained and they gave me £10 for the inconvenience. Doesn't help me get it for the weekend though.

I'm tempted to download it now, but I really wanted an actual copy.


It seems base have no stock either must have had problems from their suppliers

Got an email from Amazon today (on release date) saying "We're still trying to obtain the following item..." very disappointed. surely they would have known yesterday so i could have ordered it from base instead.

I've seen this for £50 in cex! but Ive noticed a lot of pre owned in house games like zelda, Mario, yoshi etc are sold at ridiculous prices at Game and Cex just because they are Nintendo games. I'm after smash Bros on the wii u and it's still retailing around 35 quid pre owned.
Try Grainger, I think Smash is £25 used there.

Yes, it's ridiculous, the problem is people must be buying them or they wouldn't be that price! People need to start voting with their wallets, if it's too dear don't buy it. While there may not be that much choice on Switch yet virtually every other console has a rich library of excellent and sensibly priced games...

Lol, sure let's fund this vile company the price of £40 for a pre-owned product. Meanwhile the content creator won't get a penny for a remarkable achievement
Not sure what Game have done to be classed as vile, I've only ever had good customer service from them and the only complaint I have with them are their high prices.

As for the 'used sales mean no revenue for the developer' comment, you might want to look up how little revenue stores get for selling a new game and why. Without the used market bricks and mortar stores would have been out of business years ago.

Nearly £40 for a rehashed game, people are stupid enough to pay silly amount for this, should have been in the region of £20-£25. vote cold
This game is awesome .. my 5 year old niece and nephew played it using the steering wheels .. soo much fun
still way too expensive, waiting till its at least 30

I have a switch and a Wii u, already have mk8 on the Wii u, is this just a straight port of the Wii version or is there anything extra? Graphics same quality etc?

Graphics get a boost (docked), battle mode is much better. Tracks are all the same but include all WiiU DLC. And other very minor tweaks. That's it! It's an old game but still tremendous fun. Whether existing WiiU users need to upgrade really depends on how much you value the portable aspect.

Remember the days when a console just sat quite happily on it's own, straight out of the box without any need for additional stands?
I don't recall the Gameboy, DS, PSP sitting happily on their own.
How is that even the same?
The above mentioned were all predominantly hand helds. The switch is supposed to be a console and a hand held.
But if you like getting ripped off paying for extra stuff that should be standard, crack on.

The Switch comes with the stand straight out of the box, you don't have to purchase extra stuff oO

Up until a couple of weeks ago there was plenty of stock as long as you didn't mind where you got it from. Since then though yeah it looks like stock has become more difficult to find. If anyone wants one, just check Nowinstock instead of solely relying on this site, it comes and goes but should be able to grab one within a few days.

Damn thought I would have a few weeks to decide if I want these or not. Looks like del will be 10-14 may now as just got email.
To add on to what I said here about having the comfort of playing in bed lying down, with the joy cons, I can play with my hands in whatever position I feel comfortable with at that time - I even gamed for a while with my hands under my chin because I felt like it ;) I have a pro controller too but you can't do it comfortably with it.
Stelph
sparklehedgehog
Gotta say I find this pricing obscene and I am a switch owner before anybody kicks off. The pro controller is pricey too but at least better quality than this. These should be £35-40 in my opinion. Yes it's a good price for the product so voted hot but overpriced product
Im kind of torn really, I agree they are quite expensive but then they can be used as two separate controllers for multiplayer games which standard controllers cannot - Nintendo should be bundling them with the controller holder for this price tho

If the Japanese media is to be believed, the estimated cost of Joy-Con controller is $45 each.. you can't really expect Nintendo to sell them at a loss though..

The cost of parts on a DualShock 4 in 2013 was estimated at $18, while the Xbox One’s controller was only $15.

On any other console, it is a mediocre piece of bits and bytes that's hardly worth your time.


Yeah I bought it when it went live, it's more it's a deals site and this isn't a deal it's rrp =P

It's a good game on any system.

Isn't it like an hour long or something?

There are four worlds, and three unique characters, so three different playthroughs. First playthrough will take maybe 90 minutes. But you'll be speedrunning in 30 mins by the third. It's a really fun game, and the cost of a posh pint (and longer lasting).

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.

Super Mario Odyssey: Trailer

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.
