Looks good, heat added. I personally won't be buying it until it's £200.01 and bundled with Mario Kart 8, Zelda, Mario Odyssey, Uncharted 5 and Halo 6.

Would of been much better if it came with the Splatoon coloured joy-cons.

Decent spot, decent price, but, the Splatoon themed Switch console I've been seeing with a physical copy of Splatoon 2 would be a far, far more attractive proposition.

It's a shame they take money up front. Bit skint atm so have a preorder in with Amazon instead, without a £20 off code unfortunately. Great for those with the cash on hand now though, heat!

very tempted but I'm holding out for one of those special editions with Mario or Fire Emblem Warriors or something...

I won't be buying it until they give me a good reason to purchase a 3rd Nintendo Switch..... (The awkward moment when you have 2 in the house)

I also have 2 Nintendo Wii U consoles.... They call me Noah.

I want this for splatoon but I like to have physical copies for collection and it's a shame we're not getting the same bundle as Japan.

If it had the splatoon joycons with a physical copy, I'd buy it without a second thought.

Links?

The only 'custom' console I'm aware of is the new Monster Hunter XX one which hasn't been announced anywhere but Jap

Still pricey, especially for download only, though I heated it simply because it's the best Switch deal I have seen since Gameseek underpriced it before launch. Not for me as I wouldn't use the portable mode and as a home console it's the weakest of the three. Maybe when it's back to the £199 it should have been all along I'll give it a shot...

It says limited edition bundle. Whats limited? Just the digital game that comes with it?

I'd love to get one of these. But it would just be for Zelda - and even as amazing as that's meant to be, I just can't justify that much money for one game.

That and I think there's a few hardware issues to be solved (connectivity, scratching etc.) before I buy a Switch. I'll stick to my PS4 for now. Great price for those buying though.

Looks like others have links already posted. Yes, it's Jap only at present, but I didn't say it was otherwise, just that I'd seen pics and that would be the one which could make me bite - if I didn't own a Switch (neon) already.

Not really limited edition except for the box it comes in. Joy cons are … Not really limited edition except for the box it comes in. Joy cons are standard and game is a download code. Really no point waiting for this if you want a Switch; just get one now. Japanese version comes with Pink and Green joy-cons at least which can be purchased separately here. In my opinion if you are a fan of the game then likely you would prefer a physical copy which will have resale value and mark my words when I say different themed docks will become available to purchase separately if you find the need. It is just an hdmi throughput with a few USB ports inside a plastic toaster. I think the price of the Switch and controller isn't bad considering the tech but the dock is a rip-off.



Sadly the dock isn't anywhere near that simple, hence the lack of clones available. You can get new smaller casings for the guts of the dock (I have one) but the board itself has yet to become available from 3rd party.

Nintendo just announced Pokken Tournament DX for the Switch out on 22nd September. Probably be a bundle for that too but I sincerely doubt it will be any cheaper!

I bought mine at the end of April and I haven't played it since I played a few hours of Zelda and went "yup I'm bored of this" as I put about 10 hours into the Wii U version already. MK8 I played to death on the Wii U, Splatoon 2 is pretty much Splatoon Deluxe, plus Nintendo's Online sucks so I'm not interested in it.

They've delayed the Premium Online service until next year, I wouldn't be surprised if Mario gets delayed too. We all know Pokemon will be a 3DS game as that's the way Gamefreak work, they lag behind a couple years and I wouldn't be surprised if proper Pokemon never comes to it, that or they do something dumb like make it Handheld mode only.

Then you have the Dock which sucks, mine has scratched my screen, the JoyCons are terrible, they're too small and they wobble about while hooked onto the Switch. You cannot use Wireless headphones, there is only one 3.5mm port on the console, which sucks if you mainly use it docked, even then the quality and volume from it sucks and there is no port on the Pro Controller either.

Where is Virtual console? Nintendo needed to have that to keep people busy during the lul, but we know now it's not coming until 2018, if at all.

The console is a disaster like the Wii U was, on top of that it only has a Tegra X1 inside, which is less powerful than what is in a Smartphone that came out this year as its a 2/3 year old Mobile ARM chip itself. I remember my iPad Pro from 2015 being benchmarked against the X1 and winning by miles.

They needed a console with parity to the PS4 at the least, that way third party developers could just port their games over. Instead we're having what happened to the Wii, we're getting FIFA 18 which is the PS3/360 version and with missing features.

I'm gonna play Nintendo games on it, but they're few and far between and it is just proof that Nintendo need to get rid of their hardware business and focus on software.

unfortunately if the Switch follows the previous couple of consoles then it will only have about 5 good games in its lifetime. at £300 that means the cost per game is massive. lets say splatoon 2 is £50 bought separately, that leaves
£250 ÷ 5 = £50
so you add £50 to the price of splatoon and the other 4 good games, this makes each game come out costing £90 - £100
and then if like me you dont like Legend of Zelda (I have repeatedly tried to get in to it since the snes all the way to the wii but i just find it dull) it means there is probably only going to be 4 games for the console.

Price per game is awful. I haven't even got to the Wii U yet because the only thing I wanted to really play on it was Mario Kart, maybe splatoon because it didn't seem too bad, i cant justify £230 just for 1 game.

I just think by definition of price per game Nintendo Switch is incapable of being called a deal when compared to xbox, playstation and pc.
Now i'm not a fan of xbox but if you are console inclined couldn't you get a xbox one with 3 games, 12 months live (so more free games) and still have change from £300 if you wander into most places at the moment?

It's only a matter of time - ifixit have a good teardown of the dock, and it's amongst some other chips a Mobility DisplayPort to HDMI converter and a USB 3.0 hub. Would be nice when you can get a small fly lead with female USB-C and HDMI connectors. Link

As for the casings, you can also print them from thingiverse. Not sure I am ready to pull my dock apart just yet though Link

all Switches are limited edition, there are many reasons for that, here are 3;

1) far fewer switches will be sold than ps4 or xbox one.
2) very few will survive a decade and become a retro collectable.
3) they are all very limited... because they forgot to put any processing power in them... so they cant handle much.

Yeah, I'll have to pick it up but was really disappointing to not get a real Pokemon game for Switch. This is the issue when releasing a handheld (console) when you already have a successful handheld. A fine line between cash grabbing and moving forward. Still no reason why they couldn't port a Pokemon game like they are Monster Hunters.

what makes this a limited edition ?? the fact it has splatoon download bundled hmmmmmmm the controller is the same as the normal switch red and blue neon colours .

Yes exactly... I was really excited for them to do an RPG or open world Pokémon game for the Switch that you could find and train up the Pokemon in. All the Pokemon games they announced are remakes / re-releases. In my dreams maybe.. *sigh*

Lol I watched the trailer just now.... I just shook my head and turned it off after seeing pokken dx and ultra sun and moon...

I'm not a huge fan of Pokémon but would of been nice to see a new game.

Doesn't appear to be 'proper' limited edition. It's just limited in the sense that this bundle isn't going to be made available in the millions.

Due to the portability, this is probably one console were it would be worthwhile to have digital games stacked and ready to go.

But, to me, I will always want physical. I like having games and can caress sensually from time to time.

Maybe because I want to play Zelda and Mario and maybe I want to play these games on the go

There're more than 5 must-play games just this year already.. Zelda: BotW, MK8D, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2, Mario Odyssey and hopefully western release of Monster Hunter.

Oh...and being able to play DIsgaea 5 on the go is such a satisfying experience

Between Switch and PS4 I only need about 3 a year before I get a backlog of games I never get around to playing and eventually sell.
