I’m looking to trade my Xbox One for a Switch. Found someone to trade with, just wanna know if it’s a smart idea. I already have a PS4, and I barely play my Xbox. Is it a good choice??

Such a scam it's just 2quaters of a Wii u game pad, a toaster, a tablet from 2017 and a little tiny piece of plastic to hold it up

The switch appeals to me because, during most of the year, I'm at home and can have it docked. However I spend at least 2-3 weeks out of the entire year on vacation
I am considering to buy the Switch. I never owned a single Nintendo console and I want to. Can someone tell me if the 3DS XL is also a good alternative.

I'm a somewhat Nintendo fan who owns an Xbox One. I've grown up with both of them which is what makes this choice so hard. I've been thinking seriously about selling my Xbox and buying a Switch for a while. My biggest issue is that there isn't a very big game library for it yet. That along with Halo Infinite as well as Spyro releasing soon REALLY makes me want to just wait. But thanks so much for the great video! Super helpful👍

You're right about the Zelda machine, only Breath Of The Wild knows Switch the best, so far. Others are awesome too like AOT 2, but not like Zelda awesome.

I would prefer the switch not be portable and beef up the graphics and fps. But they went the half and half route that makes it seem like its lacking as a console and more of a glorified portable.

Somebody likely has, but it needs to be pointed out that there (apparently) seems to be an issue with the dock, mostly because a moron was the designer of the thing. Docking it = the unit is almost completely sandwiched between 2 pieces of plastic, and the vents are blocked, both of those = heating increase & cooling decrease. Bad bad bad. Any PC gamer can tell you heat = death when it comes to these things, and there have been more than a couple cases of the device actually warping because of it.... To be clear, I meant warping in the way of physically bent or twisted out of shape, not warping in the FTL space-travel kind of way.....one of those is cool, the other is not.

I'm considering buying this tried the gamestop demo the joycons feel sturdy unlike the ps3 feeling like hollow plastic
Marije Hammel (25 days ago)
I just bought it and it's just so good. Everything works as promised and it's so beefy considering it's basically a tablet with some tiny (but lovely) controllers.
Ludwig Von Koopa (27 days ago)
Honestly Nintendo games look amazing on a nice big HD flat screen and they're without a doubt the most entertaining games out there so I'll never understand how so many ppl would rather play PS and X box those systems and games get so boring real easily

Hence why I waited this long to get my switch (still haven't bought in probably will get it in the coming weeks 😁)
Kyle Filbig (1 month ago)
Only my left hand works and I can't play all the games, 😥 but for the games I can play I really like the fact that the joy-con is smaller. Good job Nintendo. 👍
PetBros Ftw (1 month ago)
Well one year later I'm still spending lots of hours on mine. Games like Zelda, Mario odyssey, hollow knight, Mario karts, Rayman, overcooked etc etc etc it's the ones I can remember I spend hours on single player or multi with friends. Defo worth my £350 and I highly recommended. My brother, a very addicted pc gamer, got himself one jut cause of zelda and hollow knight and yet up to this moment he plays every day. Switch is not about graphics and 4K blah blah blah, it's about the enjoyable gameplay that keeps giving you hours and hours or pure gaming joy. Btw I'm not a nintendo fan boy and that's my first nintendo ever just to take that off the occasion

The dock is a big chunk of plastic you are right! Literally just one little circuit with a chunk of plastic for 120 Canadian dollars. What a rip off.
Alex Fannin (1 month ago)
being over a year in i love my switch. I was on the fence for a while and now whenever i think about it i say "why did i wait so long to buy this?" now the library of games has grown quite beautifully so id say deff bick one up

Watching in 2018. I am watching as many videos like this because I want to make sure that this is what I want
Nathalia Retana (18 days ago)
This vid doesn't really make it justice. I've had mine for a couple of weeks now and I have reported zero problems. Maybe the only thing is the Bluetooth thing, but I don't really like cordless headsets, so maybe tha¡s why I dont see it as a problem. Games as Doom, BoTW and Mario Kart have me pumped! And the line up of coming soon is great. I hope to buy Skyrim soon.

A beautiful Apple (1 month ago)
Am i the only one having minor problems with my switch? What i mean by that is that, the left joycon goes up and down slightly while attached to the mini screen as well as half of my right joycon going forward and backwards because the rail is a bit flimsy. The last problem is that the right upper side of the screen is a bit out but i don’t think i can push it down meaning its probably ok. I am just putting it out there to see if i should replace my switch but i don’t know if i can since the store i bought it from is a bit strict when it comes to exchanges and a bit risky since they try to repair my switch instead of giving me a new one and if only it is not repairable they then switch my switch.
TalenGio (1 month ago)
A beautiful Apple I feel you with the OCD, if the joycons move even the slightest, I go nuts. I usually just open the stand and use the joycons wireless.
A beautiful Apple (1 month ago)
TalenGio well its not back and forward exactly. Basically the rail is a bit messed up and when i have it on the grip for example i can push half of the joycon infront. Well its not really a problem though its just my OSD hehe. Thanks for reading dude really appreciate it
TalenGio (1 month ago)
The joycons are gonna move up and down SLIGHTLY....but back and forward? Not normal.

He’s a spoiled ass PC player complaining about 720p when my 3DS I used to play for thousands of hours had 480p and I was perfectly fine.
Myles432 (1 month ago)
Guys this is outdated. The Nintendo switch now is so much better. Definitely worth buying, as there’s an adequate amount of good games and they’ve update some things. I personally love my switch like crazy. I even purchased a pro controller and I thought it becomes better to use than the standard joycon grips once you get used to it.

I am interested in buying one and should be getting one and accessories by this fall/Christmas time. I am bummed that it doesn't have an internal memory like a PS or XBox. I wish it had an internal memory, at least 500gb or more. I am very excited about it though because of the games that are out for it, such as Donkey Kong, super mario kart, super smash, kirby, mario party, pokemon tournament, and the pokemon evee/ pikachu game, and splatoon. I love Nintendo, but I am a big fan of Playstation as well. Another main reason why I am very much interested in a switch is for game nights with friends. Although the switch has cool accessories, it really raises the price of getting a switch :/ I am looking forward for game nights with the switch.

The only issue i have is that the games are a bit pricy
Misiekzan (2 months ago)
yea its one downside but if you buy for example Zelda for 59 $ you can sell it for 45$ so start is expensive but if you'll focus on cartridge you can complite a game and sell it.

and now with it's high number of sales and how well it's doing anyone who says it'll only appeal to a small number of people are eating their words

Does anyone know if the USB cable is required to charge the switch while it’s docked, or is just plugging it in the wall okay?. I haven’t bought it yet, I’m really not sure about getting it. I only had the DS consoles and I’m not much of a gamer, but am to a point. I noticed a decline in DS games, so I figured the switch is the next best thing besides my PS4, since I love handhelds. Your review really helped me decide, but the cord is the only thing I’m not certain of =/
Misiekzan (2 months ago)
also switch using around 13 w but charger output is 16.
Misiekzan (2 months ago)
you get a charger with USB-c. You plug it in the wall then to dock and switch will charge and display a game.

How can you compare the switch to a pc....just playing the fucking games and stfu. When did gaming become all about power and specs and not about enjoying the game at hand?!
Tired Animations (2 months ago)
Since consoles needed more power and specs to so people can enjoy those games. We all have a preference for games and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Before CD's, there was no load time. So is there load time?
Michael Lucero (2 months ago)
Had a atari, don''t recall a load time and as for amiga, computers load information on disks of some kind. Hard drives, floppy... It takes time to spin disks to a specific rpm, and the the reading can begin. I want to know if this is sold state loading. Sorry for not being more technical with my question.
Misiekzan (2 months ago)
yea look at amiga and atari 15 minutes to load a game.
Bill McCready (2 months ago)
I love it! Over all 100% But what happens when more 4 player games come out? After playing more than an hour in handheld mode as a 31 year old gaming veteran. My hands are not what they used to be, or maybe I should buy the pro controller? or make the joystick arms maybe 1-3mm longer It would cause less stress in my hands? Only time will Tell, If the Nintendo switch has the capabilities to handle all controllers, in real time competitions! Keep me informed
TalenGio (1 month ago)

Looking at this a year from the post date, I do think the Nintendo switch is doing well and the small preferences are not causing a decrease in sales at all.
