TOO EXPENSIVE!

Although given that there are reportedly going to be stock shortages (ala NES Mini Classic), I reckon the £279.99 price might still work out to be pretty great for resellers.

Going live on Amazon at 7am today, keep an eye out!

I really don't think it's expensive considering the launch price for PS4 was £350 and X1 was £430.

People are comparing the price of the Switch to CURRENT prices of their competitors which is kind of pointless since most new gadgets that are released will be considerably higher than what's already on offer.

Where did u see 279.99?

Not confirmed Tegra X1, infact Nvidia said highly custom chip. May yet be Pascal based

While you're technically correct in a general sense based on Nvidia's vague statements, Digital Foundry is confident that it'll be using Tegra X1 and they usually get things right.

It's fine Going to have to stay up now! >.

Had the money to pre order on the assumption it would be £199.99, far too expensive considering its mid way between a Wii U and PS4.

I bought a PS4 and around 16 games for £400 recently. For the same price I'd likely get the Switch and 3 games.

I'm out, for now.

£279.99 when you can get a ps4 or xbox one for under £200 now, also don't forget that zelda breath of the wild is on wii u as well and most of the other good looking games for switch pretty much have no release date or very hazey ones.... heck there's not even alot of games confirmed right now.

I was going to. Woke at 4 to watch event but was so underwhelmed. Prob go back to bed and pick one up when Mario is released before Christmas. Can't spend over £300 to play Zelda

Neither can I, but Christmas is far away xD

The linked Tesco store page had me chuckling! Someone posted a product review FOUR MONTHS ago claiming to own Nintendo's not yet released new product! They called it "amazing" and awarded it a 5 star review rating! Those Nintendo fanboys are so funny!

Bit gutted I didn't get a pre order in with Gameseek for 198.50 now. That was purely due to people saying they were god awful on here though, and generally the people here have a bit of sense about them

Yeah might just play it on Wii U.

I expect they'll cancel hundreds of orders now. They're renowned for it.

I can get 1tb ps4 for £229.85 shopto and play persona 5 yakuza 0 instead. No deal Nintendo.

Too expensive. Dead on arrival

Banned

gameseek will cancel 1000000%. kudos if they dont. but cant see it not happening.

Banned

do game take payment on order or dispatch?

Game and Shopto have been taking preorders for months - I wouldn't preorder from these if you want one on release date.

No doubt Gameseek will cancel all the £198 preorders.

Amazon the best bet if you want 1 Day 1.
Edited by: "leebyron" 13th Jan

any pre order versions bundled with an actual game going to be available?

Wouldn't surprise me if the price planned was due to the recent Mini Nintendo outselling stock and scalpers raising the price.

Ah well I'll wait for Amazon and pre-order then sleep :P

Their page says 7 days before launch.

From GAME site:
Pre-order now and pay no deposit
You will be charged up to 7 days before the release date
Pay the lowest price with our Pre-order Price Guarantee

Also this:
PayPal pre-orders: If you select PayPal as your payment option to pre-order the Nintendo Switch, please be aware that PayPal will attempt to authorise the current £999.99 value, resulting in a pending transaction at that value until the launch date of the Nintendo Switch. This should not interfere with your use of your PayPal account and you will only pay the confirmed price on launch day. Please note that if you do not have sufficient funds available to your PayPal account when you place the pre-order, PayPal may decline to authorise the transaction which will prevent your pre-order from being confirmed.

It looks like it's gonna be a quality console for JRPG's, and a new mario game a la sunshine and 64? Count me in!

cheers guys!

Would have got one at launch if Mario was out but will now probably wait and just play Zelda on Wii U.

I pre ordered when it was £999, expecting it to be around £250, i can deal with an extra £30 and I'm sure demand will be high for this. If im not a fan, easy sell it on again for retail price.. This looks like what the Wii 2 (U) should of been. I can see it being a massive hit!

Wheres the blue and red version? I'm not preordering the boring grey version.

I agree. Looks like they learned some lessons from the Wii U judging by the presentation made it look great. Think it's gonna be popular for sure
