I haven't paid much attention but Cars 3 (digital only perhaps?) and Just Dance 2018 (physical) have been released. There is probably a lot more digital stuff come out too?
It's a great console, the tablet was a stupid idea but the games are awesome. There's some great dlc too, love the Mercedes and 200cc dlc for Mario kart 8
Yea probably digital indie type games but big AAA physical games are pretty much switch only now tho i agree still a great console with a bunch of great games.
Problem with the switch is it's way overpriced. The original Wii was £100 very quickly and the Wii U can be got for that used now. The switch is best part of three times that. For me personally just to have Mario kart and platforms like this in HD is all I want. I wish Nintendo would bring out a normal console, none of this tablet or switch crap. Just a console with regular controllers.
My youngest still plays on his Wii U and this really cheap! Re normal consoles I wish I hadn’t have “charity shopped” my husbands N64 a few years ago Though you cudnt Best the SNES! IMO anyway! With the gun and shooting the ducks etc!
Gah just paid £19 for Mario kart "used-very good" from amazon 😑

It can’t compete against “normal” console manufacturers so they make it with USP in mind to get sales from people who would not play a normal console.
I avoided the wiiu because I really didn’t like the Chucky tablet thingymabob but the switch is definitely on my list for future expenditures given that it is awesome however now the U has been out an age and it can picked relatively cheap with games I’m tempted to dive in an wait a year before getting the switch.. can someone justify this for me? I own 4wii’s, one in each room and still love that console but in respect to the U what have I missed out on? Can I use the U without the monster tab? What are the best games in your opinion? Do u think all U games will be ported on the switch? Etc etc

Thanks in advance.. merry Christmas folks!

We never use our monster tablet. We only need it for settings etc. We bought cheap 3rd pro controllers (about £12 each) that work as well as the genuine ones.

The main benefit for me over the Wii is it's HD. Mario kart looks incredible, my brother has the switch and the graphics are no better IMO.

The games are now so cheap its a great console.

The other cool thing is it plays Wii games so you don't need to keep the old Wii console.

All they needed to do was make the original Wii HD, it would have been half the price and hugely popular. The Wii U is great but the cost of adding the ridiculous tablet killed it.
Legendary. Have plenty of heat. Brilliant post
Recently picked up a Wii U off eBay with a few games for £130 and I believe that there is still plenty of life left in this console I mean kids absolutely love it and I play on it more than the snes mini I went to the end of the earth to own 😣

Well seeing as Nintendo stopped manufacturing the console almost a year ago and the very final first-party game (Breath Of The Wild) came out 9 months ago then its sure doing a very good impression is being a dead console. Having a Cars game and a Just Dance game is something at least for the youngsters that have the console but to all intents and purposes, it's stone cold dead, it is no more, it has ceased to be.

Interestingly enough, talking of dead consoles that hung in there on life support, did you know that the very last PS2 game (PES 2014) actually came out in November 2013, just a couple of weeks before the console's 'grandchild', the PS4, was launched. Crazy, eh?

I believe it is overpriced but in comparison its cheaper or same price than what the wii u premium was at launch and that was 5 years ago i believe so cant really compare the prices as im sure in 5 years time the switch will probably be around the £100 mark

Very true, I didn't buy the Wii U until black Friday 2015 when I got a Mario kart bundle for £159. If a similar switch deal comes in a year or two I'll bite.

And lots of generic shooter games for it too?
i have a wii u & freaking love it the tablet is the best idea EVER!!! as it means you can play a game while people are watching tv & thats just what il be doing the same with the switch when the price & bundles gets better (i know the switch is portable but il never take it out the house) so to me its just a nicer more fancy wii u which i love & adore
The Wii U sucked so much

Yeah I agree with that - I think they agree that the Wii U was not a success. However it does seem to work as a concept but as you said earlier the price (when it was new) was off putting. It’s the same with the switch.

The console never had big AAA physical games that's the reason it didn't take off.

I think another one of the reasons it didn't take off was that Nintendo was too stupid to to realise that it needed to bring its big guns to the Wii U (new Metroid, F-Zero, 1080, Pilotwings, Zelda). To launch a new console when you have that arsenal of beloved intellectual property at your disposal and not use it is just suicidal. The fact that out of those franchises to only one that made it to the Wii U with a new game was Zelda, which finally came as the last game by them on the system, released long after the horse has bolted, speaks volumes for the negligence and lack of understanding from those running Nintendo. Because if you put out say an exclusive Metroid game fairly early in the console's life you give people a real reason to actually buy the system.
