So .... i went and got myself a Switch.

When i first seen the announcement and the presentation that accompanied it i was impressed by the uniqueness (similar to that of the Wii) but i didnt think it would catch on.

I kept an eye on it and seen more and more games getting announced and to be fair to nintendo they looked like they were on to something again......

.... and they were. The switch is obviously not a power, ultra hd graphics machine like what the xbox one x will be but it does play 1080p easily when docked and upto 900p so far (mario odyssey) in handheld mode.

The variety of gaming modes is phenomenal - docked tv mode, handheld mode and also on the kickstand with use of the joy cons - theres loads of ways to play and none of them seem to have a detrimental effect on the actual game play.

Some good third party stuff on there too like FIFA18, WWE2k18, NBA and already announced are DOOM, Wolfenstein and Resident Evil.

Does anyone else have one or have yous considered getting one?

They are well worth the money and ive even replaced my xbox one with this as the primary console.

I love buying accessories for things and there are an absolute shed load to go with the switch ... the only one they havent released yet is something to protect you from your misses when you beat her on mario kart!!!

Our family will eventually get one, but for now we are just waiting for more games to get released. We got the Wii-U when it first came out and ended up buying about half a dozen games. Not at all worth the price of the system IMO. We got well over a dozen games for the Wii and also the GameCube and easily 2 dozen or more games for the 3DS.

After getting burned on the Wii-U, I just want to wait until the switch is closer towards the end of its life cycle and then buy a bunch of games all at once.

Besides that, we were able to get The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii-U and it was AWESOME!

I never played the Wii U but ive read alot online about comparisons and the switch has already surpassed what the wii u achieved.

I think its the uniqueness factor - the same as what the wii had when that was released.

Whether or not it will last is another question but they are really struggling to meet demand which is always a good sign in terms of sales ... the third party games is also a real benefit - first fifa on a nintendo console i believe
