Jesus Christ prankster101 Why the need for massive opinion post on a deal site!

The following comment is stolen from MasterFox (from N4G.com) with regards to Mario Odyssey pushing Switch to its limits... Can't say that I disagree.

"Super Mario Odyssey pushes Switch to its limits" <--- Switch barely 7 months out and already reaching its limits, wuhahaha yeah my 350 dlls or more perfectly justify with the Switch, right?, lol seriously people The Switch is selling because is a fad at the moment, but if you just stop for a second and think a bit about the Switch if really is worth the purchase you will realize is not, just look at the facts:

* Too expensive of what if offers
* only two good games in a period of seven months
* limited specs, overheating issues, battery issues, storage issues
* barely handles full HD games in docking, 720p image on handheld we are 2017 you know.
* Nintendo re-release last years games marketed as a reason to purchase a Switch
* Inferior multiplataform games priced same as the Superior versions
* Old multiplataform games re-releases marked full price, inferior version of course(Doom example)
* Switch games prices marked the same as console games, and most of them way inferior in quality.
* Pathetic multimedia options, I think it doesn't even play MP3 files
* Ridiculous overpriced accessories
* Mediocre online infrastructure, you need to plug your smartphone to chat online,lol
* Pathetic game library releases schedule for 2018 and beyond, this year was the same only two good games, all others range from average to mediocre.

Man I can go on and on , one of the main reasons all these negatives facts are present is because of the price is not justified, if it was lower all these negatives would be forgettable but is not, with that price you can buy a console with dozens of high quality games already out not to mention way cheaper, I mean buying Doom for 59.99 for the switch looking way inferior is just dumb, if the game ran on the Switch full HD / 60 fps, holy damn!!, I would definitely see the Switch with another eyes and consider buying it right away!, a reasonable price for the Switch because is a handheld I think is no more than 200 bucks, if it had this price I would definitely consider a possible purchase I think, and I'm saying possible cause the current game library just plain sucks!, and no I won't purchase a gaming device for just two damn good games released in a period of seven months!.

By the way, I voted "hot". But that's only because the base RRP is £280. Even if the Switch is too expensive for what it actually offers (imho).

I completely agree with you on most things. 720p handheld more isn't bad though. The screen is small enough and sharp enough. When I was playing Zelda in docked mode though there was quite a bit of slowdown when running through the grass. I think it was right at the beginning of the game when I noticed it. Not good if it's being pushed to its limits in the first few minutes of playing a game.

I find it hard to vote this anything other than cold (sorry), seeing just yesterday I paid £291.19 to Toys R Us for the Red Limited Edition Odyssey Bundle which is far nicer and more desirable than this deal. (see hotukdeals.com/dea…560)

Worth noting it does also include a £10 voucher to spend at TRU, can go towards a game, and there is always a £5 off a £30 spend code that works with games. TRU also ha better cashback values.

So much wrong with the above. Could pick it apart point by point but really not worth it. The only real valid point is that it's all a bit expensive. I know my wallet is hurting. But Apple have proved people will pay for quality.

Not sure why people and the industry internally get so worked up about the tech and specs.

1. Is the game(s) any good or not?
2. Does the game(s) compete and excel as a game compared to what else is out there? Are many games better than it?
3. Is it overall good value for money?

Surely the above is the most important aspects. As long as the tech is capable.... I can't really see any issue with the GFX of Switch games so far. I have not seen or heard of sprite issues, lag, or struggles to process anything either. If your going to get worked up about the tech spec of the Switch then you have to at least recognise it is the first home console that is truly portable, and has broken ground there. At least highlight the positives and have some balance?

I have not played Odyssey yet, but from the many videos and screenshots I have seen and the early reviews, it seems a safe bet to expect it to mop up many gaming awards.

If technical spec is the be all and end all to anyone, and what really matters, then home consoles are actually a waste of time for you and not a good fit. You really should be running a top spec PC for your gaming, and keeping it up to date with the latest hardware (as PC hardware in general improves so frequently and rapidly).

Erm, I kind of agree with your Nintendo argument...
...but Apple have not proved that "people will pay for quality". Apple have proved that you can create a luxury electronic brand loyalty, and use it to fleece consumers. Marketing excellence, not product excellence.

​Agreed, a bit pricey but it's quickly becoming my favourite console in a long time (had pretty much every console for the last 25 years, currently have PS3, ps4 pro, snes mini, xbone s, x preorder and PC). Nintendo have never been cheap but they make terrific games. I'll take gameplay over graphics any day.

I wanted to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild so I bought a Wii U for £89 used from GAME. I couldn't see the point in paying for the Switch for the little gained.

I think that Nintendo is famous for squeezing every bit of juice out of it's hardware - that's one of the advantages of being a software and hardware company. Honestly if you're not fussed about NIntendo exclusive titles and you have as much time as you want to sit in front of a PC or a TV to game, then Switch is not going to be your bag. I happen to love Nintendo games (I don't think there's anyone else that makes games quite like them) and as someone who works full time and has a family, my gaming time is always under pressure. Switch has been the perfect console for me personally and the family loves it too. I could take on all of the points offered in prankster101's post, but I can't really be bothered. It's all just a matter of opinion anyway isn't it?

*Is this a joke? iPads cost considerably more. Nvidia Shield is £180 without the joycons/screen. uk.pcmag.com/com…257 More proof of people trying to be armchair manufacturers.

* Only two? Zelda, Mario, Arms, Splatoon, Mario+Rabbids etc. The thing has had a better launch than the PS4/Xbox One had. Two are some of the highest rated this year.

* limited specs, overheating issues, battery issues, Storage issues are valid but limited specs? What like the PS4/Xbox One? Last time I checked, they used tablet CPUs and can’t be upgraded, so they’re just as “limited”. Overheating and battery issues? Rubbish.

* Barely handles full HD games? Have you ever looked at Digital Foundry’s face offs? The Xbox One barely handles Full HD. The PS4 doesn’t always achieve it too.

* Cough, cough, Uncharted Collection, Halo:MCC, Beyond Two Souls, Bulletstorm, GTA V, L.A Noire... Just saying.

* Inferior multiplatform games MORE expensive on all three compared to PC.

* Old multiplataform games re-releases marked full price, inferior version of course(Doom example) Valid complaint.

* Pretty sure this is a repeated point... either way, see above with PC titles. Same applies to Xbox One in comparison to PS4.

* Pathetic multimedia options, I think it doesn't even play MP3 files. Valid point.

* Ridiculous overpriced accessories - Xbox one/PS4 controllers costing £40-£50 for a single controller... Joycons costing £70 and can be used as 2 controllers... hmm

* Mediocre online infrastructure, you need to plug your smartphone to chat online,lol- Valid.

* Completely subjective opinion.

Don’t worry Prankster, I’m sure “the gang” of Chas and Kirsty will be along soon to help you continue to troll Switch deals which everyone sees you do. Also, N4G? Not the greatest of places to be finding widespread opinions on gaming. It’s a hive of 12 year olds fanboying.

You really should be running a top spec PC for your gaming, and keeping it up to date with the latest hardware (as PC hardware in general improves so frequently and rapidly).


Seems odd to question why people care about specs and then ask whether a device is good value for money. Specs are a big part of that. There HAVE been issues with performance, BotW had issues in some scenarios, bomberman was supposedly bad on release and has decided to lower its resolution, developers have mentioned that there are things they can't include that can take away from the experience, and games like doom, while nice to have the option to play it on the switch, does seem to be more limited than console and PC performance. I understand the appeal of the switch, but I do think that people treat it as a fad and over-hype it. I think there are a fair amount of criticisms over the limitations of the device which make me hold off from buying one, though as game prices have dropped and bundles are appearing I am getting more tempting. One of the big things I want is a better, and preferably removable battery so that I don't need to worry about the device not working well as a portable device as the battery degrades (plus it's not so long to begin with).

I haven't had a console for a long time, but as someone who does care about specs, I do think they are good devices. They're simple and cheap. You can get more performance from a PC, but you'd need to spend more too. I mean your argument is like saying if I don't like the performance of a £50 smartphone, then if I care about performance, I should really be paying £800+ for ones that can really perform. The switch is the best performing handheld there is, but there are definitely a lot of limitations that makes it not appeal to some. Especially after advertising the dock in a way that makes it seem more consonley rather than just something to hold the switch in place while it's attached to a TV. Even an ethernet port would be appreciated.

The lack of games has also been something I have originally argued, but there seems to now be a wider selection.

I don't know how I could have made it any clearer, my point clearly was if a console is good value for money is not all about the technical spec, and I was questioning why people get so obsessed and can't see past anything other than specs.

The technical spec of a Take That concert is very good, pyrotechnics and all. Madonna takes things to another level with her visuals, coordinated dance and electro music .Nothing against that music but I would rather go see Noel Gallagher, who just stands there and it is about the music. Same with gaming, what are the games actually like? How do they play?

If Nintendo was just entirely focused about technical spec with their home consoles, rather than focusing more energy into the other key areas which other consoles seem to give little awareness too, then I would not buy a Nintendo console. God help us if Nintendo consoles become nothing more than a mainstream console that is all about the latest Call Of Duty 27 game and its infinite generic shooter clones.

Sorry to nitpick but BOTW and Odyssey are actually two of the highest rated games of all time (according to game rankings) not just this year.

I have got switch bundled with physical copy of zelda and mario odyssey fro game for 340 pounds and got 6.99 voucher to spend instore. Not a brilliant price but I doubt that I will find it any cheaper closer to christmas. Mario scored perfect 10 and zelda is still super expensive.

No homework / housework has been done since this console entered the house in Thursday.

You say it like you can't have good game design on more relevant hardware.

@frish That might be one or your interpretation. I just have a more holistic view to gaming. You don't need a Tesla for a 100 mile road trip. Plenty other electric cars can do that trip just as well.

There is also other aspects like where else can my family and I play Mario themed games?

Which other consoles can one realistically play if they wish to avoid streams of generic mass shooter gaming, and have a more focused family orientated type of gaming experience?

That's a little rich... you remember the 2DS?

That's a little rich... you remember the 2DS?



Who could forget the 2DS. The newer folding units are an improvement, but those old rigid exposed large flat units with no hinges, tiny screens, crappy controls and no 3DS, which people don't realise is optional and easily disabled... Yeah they sucked, they still suck, and they will always suck.

That was proper retro tech at a marked up price. The Switch is groundbreaking, it improved on the Wii U, not just with the GFX, but there was no syncing with a large traditional console anymore, and it as portable as a 3DS now. Maybe it is the mainstream consoles that need to catch up with the Switch! But of course you don't take a holistic view and are pigeon holed into whatever argument fits to put down the latest Nintendo console.

It is called not being biased I am always happy to give Nintendo pelters if they deserve it. Just not supporting the Switch is crap view that some mainstream generic shooter console gamers have.

There are numereous ways to play and experience 3DS gaming. The original 2DS is frankly a very poor one. There is only one option for experiencing your Switch gaming, and there is nothing wrong with it tech wise if you listen to the sensible people. Although I would agree is a little bit pricey, but still I bought one, and loads of others have and are buying them too. You know you get a quality, varied and innovative gaming experience when you invest in Nintendo.
Edited by: "noahsdad" 29th Oct

I have a high end PC and a PS 4 pro, yet spend most of my gaming time recently on the switch, why? Because its convenient, its exclusives, all of which are great - I have 4 (both mario games, zelda and golf story), can't be bought for other platforms.

Sure its not as fast as the other consoles, but I dont care - the games are fantastic, the portability is as well. If I wanna drool at 4k graphics I wont be doing it on this handheld but then I never expected that. If all you care about is the highest quality graphics you shouldn't be looking at consoles at all. I also havent ran into this list of problems you have either, im very happy with it and im sure others are as well.

Who could forget the 2DS. The newer folding units are an improvement, but …Who could forget the 2DS. The newer folding units are an improvement, but those old rigid exposed large flat units with no hinges, tiny screens, crappy controls and no 3DS, which people don't realise is optional and easily disabled... Yeah they sucked, they still suck, and they will always suck.That was proper retro tech at a marked up price. The Switch is groundbreaking, it improved on the Wii U, not just with the GFX, but there was no syncing with a large traditional console anymore, and it as portable as a 3DS now. Maybe it is the mainstream consoles that need to catch up with the Switch! But of course you don't take a holistic view and are pigeon holed into whatever argument fits to put down the latest Nintendo console.It is called not being biased I am always happy to give Nintendo pelters if they deserve it. Just not supporting the Switch is crap view that some mainstream generic shooter console gamers have.There are numereous ways to play and experience 3DS gaming. The original 2DS is frankly a very poor one. There is only one option for experiencing your Switch gaming, and there is nothing wrong with it tech wise if you listen to the sensible people. Although I would agree is a little bit pricey, but still I bought one, and loads of others have and are buying them too. You know you get a quality, varied and innovative gaming experience when you invest in Nintendo.

I'm confused with how the Switch is now consistently beating both the Xbone and PS4 in the NPD sales and indeed in other regions too yet you're still spouting out your rabid contempt for 'mainstream' consoles, explain to us all how this works Noah Senior

...But Apple have proved people will pay for quality.


Indeed they have but what are Nintendo doing given that Switch has a distinct lack of quality?
