your buying a game or multiple games that come with the cardboard models, not just cardboard, watch the video

Am going to start listing some of the amazon boxes I have on ebay and put in the title "compatible with nintendo switch".

Also same deal on Toy-Con 01 for £54.99.
This is all cardboard that price will come crashing down after a few months. Or there will be some cost effective third party solutions.
Gotta give it to Nintendo, they are very good at making money. £65 for some flipping cardboard is outrageous
Cardboard plus the game.
£5 under RRP
wait, this is a real thing! i thought it was a meme. lol

I think these look amazing! I showed it to my 8 year old and he definitely wants one.

You're paying for the software here, not the cardboard. Plus, without splitting hairs, it isn't just cardboard bundled as there are some other components needed to get the whole thing working. I agree though, others will get involved which is great.
How long until the cardboard rips or breaks i wonder.

You underestimate the power of a Nintendo fanboy!
It's not just cardboard you know. It's a pounds worth of cardboard and £64 of software. Which then of course makes this amazing value.
I think it does not matter how much this kit is priced for. What matters is how much they are going to sell the replacement cardboard boxes for.
Awesome! Thanks for this. Pre-ordered both toy-con versions. It *IS* over-priced for what it is tbh - twice the price of what it should be. But I think it's a great marriage between engineering and gaming - and I think it's the perfect way to introduce my children slowly to the world of gaming

Not sure this is worth 60 odd sheets

Given how strong folded cardboard can be, who knows?

Getting it wet might be a problem.

This is very clever engineering.
Even for the discount I wouldn't preorder this, ever. Everyone says it's all about the software, but if the game is just one minigame for each item, or a small world to explore or something, then it's not going to be worth it. You'll be spending £55/£65 for a bunch of cardboard and a game you can play with it for 10 minutes before getting bored. If it's full featured games, then it might be worth it, but absolutely don't preorder.

Another Nintendo gimmicky product that will be ovehyped and underwhelming. Thanks op preordered. Have some heat
I really like the look of this, might have to get a switch just to try it

Heat from me OP, get the feeling it’ll be a little bit cheaper by April though.
I had no idea the robot would be as much as the entire variety pack. I just assumed additional sets would be cheaper.

Can't really justify the price for 2 sets. It costs £125 for what Nintendo revealed in the trailer.
usa launch date format is 4/20 ... 420 is the usa police code for smoking marijuana ... this explains a lot about this whole idea

emperor's new clothes springs to mind

it's just pieces of cardboard for freaks sake linked to limited playability "games"

... beyond stupid but i'm sure loads of the cool trendy wow people will suck it up

They are publishing the templates online so you can print them off and cut out replacements yourself, thankfully!

P.S. I'm starting to stockpile all my amazon boxes as we speak

Isn't the software that comes with it just a mini game/s? If thats the case then Nintendo are charging AAA price for what is essentially 1-2 Switch Take 2 plus some cardboard.
Just heard of this, my daughter is getting a switch for her birthday - can some kind person please show me the link so I can see what this is all about please?

Here you are What is Nintendo Labo?
It's amazing how many people on here comment without actually knowing what it is or what it's market is.

It's for children.

My daughter saw it and said "that is awesome"

Safe to say, it's not pitched at middle aged CoD players.

My 5 year old can put a cardboard loo roll on his arm and say it's awesome. Doesnt mean loo rolls are worth 65 quid.
I cant see my 11 year old being much bothered to colour in cardboard!! Thing Nintendo should have done that bit to make it look a bit more interesting. Nice concept but worried about the cost and how long a piece of cardboard will last - how do you get replacements, cant afford to buy it twice just for a piece of cardboard?? If its not coming out till 24 April then I am going to miss her birthday anyway as that is 14 April. Maybe for next Xmas when some reviews are in from those who rush out to buy??

Most Nintendo games do not fall in price like that though. Not sure about cardboard though...

"middle aged CoD players" so 10-year olds, right?
