Nintendo completely take the **** with their prices, the only saving grace is you'll recoup nearly as much on eBay

I utterly love every single thing about this game but i cannot accept that the a port of a 3-4 year old game can be released at full retail.

£40 puts this at the 6 or 7 nintendo first party game to pick up. Shame it should be £30 all day

its like 20 on wii u
The Switch should be called Wii U Remastered!

Yes the PS4/XB1 have their fair share of remastered games, but the Switch takes it to another level...and it's only a year old!
Each to their own but I cannot understand the love for this console. I've always loved Nintendo but in my opinion this is one of the worst consoles they have released. I purchased it on day one and just don't use it, port after port. I honestly feel the Wii U was so much better.

True - we've all been hoodwinked! a trickle of new releases but overwhelmingly ports from X year.

i got it for like 30 launch so no way am i paying 40 for it lol
AHH good old Nintendo, hates what most other companies do, yet realises there is good money in remakes and remasters, sad really that they don't get the fact that people won't pay full retail though, the switch has been nothing but portable Wii U so far, glad I didn't pick one up at launch, it's sad to see they still don't know what gamers actually want if they took the time to make a full retro library the switch would sell like hot cakes, I'm talking nes/SNES compendiums on a cartridge similar to the SNES mini and nes mini but for the switch, I'd be interested then, till then remastering titles I have already got makes no sense for me to buy a switch
Take note. Base.com don't deliver on release day.
Amazing game, worth full price all day long.

There has been more then just port after port. First year we had Zelda BOTW (technically a port, but came out the same time as the Wii U ver) Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2. 3 of the best games released last year. Then there has been Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario & Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, none of these are Ports.

Although this year there does seem to be more ports.
Love this game but 40£? Come on Nintendo...

Reasons to buy switch- super Mario odyssey and the legend of zelda breath of the wild! But valid points
Switch tax
Really liked tropical freeze but would have to be really cheap for me to get it again
Probably my favourite game of last gen, might pick it up again. Perfect amount of challenge and accomplishment. Not too hard as people say, just challenging
You kids complaining about 'port after port' are crazy. Do you have any idea how many ports/remasters have hit the ps4/xboxone?? Your God of war, Uncharted, bioshock, borderlands, collections. Your heavenly rain/beyond two souls, wipeout, darksiders, devil may cry, metro, collections. Your bulletstorm, sleeping dogs, skyrim, star oceon, dishonoured...

All games to name a few that hit PS3 first. A console that sold considerably more than the wiiU...and moaning the switch has nothing but ports? Because it has bayonetta, Mario kart, this (not out yet), skyrim/la noir (neither ever hit a Nintendo machine...both came to other consoles) and...? Im sure there's more but minds blank...and nothing compared to what's been rereleased on other platforms.

Switch has just had its first year and the strongest lineup that would arguably out match any consoles first year.

The price for this can be complained about though.
I had / have it on the wii u, could never get passed one of the boss levels!
I see what everyone is saying about ports but for me: I play on the switch way more because it’s portable, this means I missed out on a lot of decent wii u games. Secondly, poor sales of the wii u means a lot of people missed out on these games.
There's a reason why the switch has outsold every other console in its first year, including PS4 AND XBOX ONE..

Because it a great console... Bought it for my son and I play it more than he does... Only because of his screen time restriction...
Still own it for the Wii u and will definitely buy it for the switch but definitely needs to around £20 before I bite

Well one thing's for sure at least those ports/remasters actual remasters and not just straight ports where priced alot better than some of these switch ports. But I can't complain I've brought a few of these full priced switch ports just because they are portable
Gonna hold off for at least a £30 deal or below (although I will eventually buy it)

“I don’t like ports or remakes and I would only buy this console if they were to port more games over.”
Sorry but having worked in a game store from 2012-2016, the first few years of the PS4 and Xbox One were plagued with remasters, way more than we’ve got the Switch so far.

However yes yes I do agree that the price is too much, especially given that Nintendo recently added Tropical Freeze to their Nintendo Selects range and the game now goes for £20 retail.

Breath of wild and mario Odyssey are 2 reasons to buy a switch. They are incredible.
