Thanks op. I have unused clubcard vouchers so this suits me.
For the haters: Got a Switch last week and my 1080gtx powered gaming PC is just gathering dust. I truly think Nintendo have nailed it with the Switch. It's just so cool to be able to play BOTW whilst lying in bed on a Sunday morning.
I agree with you, I know it doesn't suit everyone.. but sometimes I don't feel like gaming at my PC (Stardew Valley sort of games) - yet, the Switch is easy to just relax on the sofa, and I use it on the train.
I actually bought the controller earlier than I planned as I needed a USB-C cable and this controller comes with one which people overlook!

So we now live in a world where £60 is a reasonable price to pay for a game controller.
A small piece of plastic with some circuit boards in it.
Give it a year, with only Zelda and a Mario games to play & you'll be able to buy the console for this price.
£60. Mario can buy four new hats & a moustache trimmer with that money.
Unlikely, you can't get a Wii U for £60!

You can't even get a NES for that price, controllers are expensive dude.
Apology accepted and feathers most certainly rustled. ;)

The pad is good though, I was reluctant to pay £60 for a pad but after having it (and issues with joycons) it's well worth it.

I apologize also. Had a crap evening and decided to vent at the first thing.

So expensive for a controller that doesn't seem that special. Struggling to find a reason to vote hot.
This is the type of person that would go out and buy a PSVR... lol.
A pad is for life, not just for Christmas.
Haha! Wrong. Last PS I owned was a PS2. Love my Xbox one though if that helps
That just confirms what you are.
Hahahahahahahahahaha. As if you know me, lol.
It's a forum pal where people get to post anonymous comments. Rather than trying to annoy people perhaps you should actually contribute to this forum AND POST SOME DEALS!
I contribute in other ways. Helping people etc... rather than random Sh*t posts about something you won't buy for a console you probably don't own.
Typical fanboy attitude - which is funny cause you probably bought an elite pad for £100 when they were first released.
The Xbox pads are awful. Well actually they aren't bad but those LB/RB 'buttons' are trash hence rendering the pad crap in my opinion.

Would quite like to own the console if I'm honest. My N64 was probably my favourite console of all time. Loved Ocarina, Golden Eye and MARIO 64. Just haven't been interested in Nintendos most recent home consoles.

Again, wrong about the elite pad, but no hard feelings.

This is a deals website and I don't think RRP of an over priced product (IMO) constitutes a deal.

Apologies for ruffling the feathers.

A joke of a price for a controller. Clearly has the Nintendo up mark on it.
"up mark" or "mark up"?!
Yes, it is pricey. I get that it's a new console, has fancy rumble etc, but come on, near enough £60? They're having a laugh.
The dualshock 4 was £55 on release (at least it was at GAME, not sure there was much cheaper about).
No doubt that this will come down steadily in the same sort of way.
And the battery life in this controller is leaps and bounds ahead of the Dualshock 4.

Ouch...
The Switch is a bloody expensive prospect isnt it!
No it's the 4th cheapest console of all time. People seem to think these companies are charities and shouldn't apply inflation.
Hmm, you say this, and yet, the total price of entry with all relevant accessories (example in question: a controller that is more fitting within the mold of home consoles).
So let's say you get the Console, and 1 of these for more traditional gaming experience in the home, that's £335. Add a game into the mix (£40 average) and we're hitting £375. Now, I'm not saying this is TOO bad, although the gimmick of being able to play anywhere and sacrificing performance will probably fade fairly quickly, BUT there are a few other accessories that you can pick up for a smoother/better experience.
Not saying the console is bad, just seems pretty expensive. Especially considering price of entry on a PS4/ONE is now around £200 if you get a good deal.
So the cost of an ipad then, that many kids demand and get gifted for xmas then still end up aspiring to have more involved gaming experiences.
Not sure I'd try to convince parents of kids under 14 that a PS4 is more suitable because it's cheaper
and as a young adult I always bought Nintendo consoles to compliment the PC and Sony consoles.

Fair point, suppose I'm not seeing it from the perspective of a parent though. Seeing as the console is targeted at hipster youth in all the advertising, the assumption is that adolescent - adults are the main target group to begin with - they're the ones with the income, who respond to advertising.

Besides, kids of all ages have home consoles, and there are games available for all age groups. Let's say you bought your kid this device, and they lost one of the joycon controllers - that's probably £30-40 minimum to replace, and you'd better believe it would happen.

Outwardly, Nintendo is a 'kid friendly' brand - but it isn't the kids buying the Switch for BotW - it's adults buying it for themselves. So, as an adult gamer, the Switch is most definitely an expensive prospect when all things are factored in to give you a traditional home gaming experience.

Then again, most consoles start expensive, so let's just hope Nintendo get some decent bundles at a more competitive price pretty soon.

After having my order from Zavvi cancelled yesterday, I ordered direct from Nintendo with next day delivery. Thankfully, it has just been delivered. However, it arrived in a 'The Hut' box, this is the same parent company which run Zavvi.
The irony of it after I had said I would never use Zavvi again.
Anyway, I have a a sneaky suspicion the zavvi orders were cancelled so the stock could be sold at a higher price through the 'Nintendo' store.
The Hut run Nintendo UK's online store - in my experience with great service standards.

You don't say but at least T wat thew Moulding is reined in by Nintendo on that operation hence it is customer friendly as such. No idea why people even talk about the Hut Group as it's just Moulding, Moulding and more Moulding, the man is a 24 carat wrong'un.

What surprises me reading this thread is that people are surprised they've been shafted by his main money spinner, it's criminal he was allowed to buy the Zavvi brand for pennies

Update is optional. But it only took like 5 seconds to download and restart :)

I completely agree with you, the Nintendo UK online store has always provided high levels of service and I have no complaints with them at all. It's just a shame the same high level of service isn't reflected with Zavvi.

I regret sticking with base for this - has anyone had theirs process or dispatch yet?
You might still have made the better choice than switching to Zavvi (as I've done) - while my order's still sitting at "processing", there's been at least one report of order cancellation due to using a discount code.


I guess that's kind of good to know that the other options weren't great either! Hopefully your order turns up on Friday.

Dualshock 4's were £49.99 for a long time and no one said anything...
They even launched at £59.99 and don't come close to offering the same functionality as the Switch Pro pad.
To clarify as it hasn't been advertised all that well.
The Switch Pro controller features;
- Gyro controls
- HD Rumble
- 40 hours battery life (so i have read anyway, the Wii U pro controller had an 80 hour battery life itself)
It's a pretty damn good pad with those in mind and if utilised fully it should be well worth the money. It will likely be the best way to play most games on the Switch as well.
There you go, exactly what I meant. I mean £70 is too much but £55 is quite good if you take the points you've just made and consider the other systems controllers at launch and for a few years after launch! I think it's not too bad and if people don't like it then they should hold out until they can afford it or the price drops.
Well said.
A Nintendo console controller needs a bit more thought process than what a mainstream console needs. Mainstream console controllers are designed with specific genres in mind, mainly generic shooters. a Nintendo controller is required to be more flexible and cater for all types of gaming genres.
Where did you get that from? :D
Well if you have a biscuit factory that just makes mainly plain digestives and not much else, you will need a specific and set of equipment. But if you look at another biscuit factory that likes to do a bit more with its digestives and add on chocolate, and also produces cookies, custard creams and bon-bons you are going to need something more sophisticated equipment wise to cater for all those "genres" of biscuit.
So basically you just pulled it out of thin air. Alright then.
Not in the slightest. If you really want to break down then.... It is an observation that:
One console maker has been producing non-mainstream consoles with a wide ranging variety of non-mainstream gaming titles for many years now. The other mainstream console makers have created gaming that largely focuses on masses of generic shooters.
To think that the controller needs are the same for 2 quite different types of console, and the different games they run, well that would be naïve.
Controllers have to be designed for many things. Not just game type. For hand size, comfort, etc.
I don't see how either the PS or XB controller are designed primarily for shooters. Care to elaborate on that? Or another reason to justify the price of the controller?

Is a case of a large proportion of PS/XB games are mass produced numbers of generic shooters. That simply has to influence how controllers are designed for those consoles. Also re the price, niche non mainstream products cost more in any industry, that is just how it is. You pay for the finer things and experiences in life. Your shopping at Debenhams & BHS with a PS/XB. With Nintendo, your shopping at House of Fraser or Harvey Nichols. It is always gonna cost more.

Is the Wii U Pro Controller compatible with the Switch? Please say yes. *fingers crossed*
Is the Spasho compatible with HUKD? Oops, seems like an update has removed this functionality :(

He probably got a bit overly frustrated and annoyed at some Nintendo hating XB/PS fanboy on one of the Switch deals. I just hope HUKD are banning the nutty XB/PS fanboys that are already besieging every Switch deal thread. Remember when we had over a year of the "Wii U is dead and all the nonsense that entailed". Well this is the new "XB/PS fanboy, the Switch is crap phase". Could go on for sometime!

Was looking around in GAMEs website and noticed there will also be a wired controller. It's a lot cheaper than the pro. Is there really a big difference between the two beside from the price and one being wired? From GAMEs website it will cost £27.99 so that is a massive difference in the price between the two. http://www.game.co.uk/en/nintendo-switch-wired-controller-1791213
That's the Hori one. It looks mighty impressive but I'll try first the Switch Tablet and if it feels comfy I'll stick to it, if not then I'll order the Hori.
Sunday can't come any sooner!
Jason from Kotaku seems to think it's more comfortable than it looks. Will look forward to hearing if you agree with himhttp://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f192/cooldude012/Screen%20Shot%202017-01-13%20at%2020.43.35_zps8zhm4eut.pnghttp://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f192/cooldude012/Screen%20Shot%202017-01-13%20at%2020.43.57_zpsh10enbsp.png
we will have to wait and see, im fine with not paying 60 pounds for it and using the grip instead
i think i'll wait til they release a limited edition switch later in the year, seems like the new nintendo president doesnt know how much games and accessories should be sold for nor is the lineup impressive. street fighter 2 on the switch...great and all, but they dont expect me to fork out 60 quid for it do they? lol

People need to remember that Nintendo don't set the prices in Europe.

This is all Nintendo's RRP. Admittedly these won't be the prices on release, but the wholesale prices - if the RRP's are this high - won't leave much scope for aggressive pricing at retail. A £65 RRP would probably lead to about £50 "shelf" price, the Wii U pro controllers RRP was £59.99... Most retailers carried it for around £45.

Surely we can hit -1000, Nintendo needs to know that nobody wants to pay £60-65 for a standard controller.
In case nobody knows, the grip thats comes with the console can not be charged and to do so you will need to buy the charging grip separately for £25-£28.
If you don't have a charging grip or standard controller then when the batteries run out you will need to slide the Joy-con controllers on to the tablet and wait for them to charge (unless they can survive off of the tablets battery but I don't care to use it as a portable.

Is this 100% confirmed?
