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??

Nickelodeon games might be coming back, and I hope they get put on the Nintendo Switch!

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 =/

As a black man whos's pockets are deeper than, I guess, the average white man, I can, in fact, put my switch in my pocket And yes I paid for it.

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?!
Sleepy Animations (5 days 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?
Bill McCready (17 days 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

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.

here's my comment. i'm a sony fan since child. i was raised with the playstation from 1 to 4. i've never own a single nintendo console or handheld before. like you said, i thought at first i was going to hate it cos i was never a nintendo fan. i just bought it because i love the concept of playing games like fifa and nba 2k in portable mode. and yes i was right. it's awesome. but i hated all the nintendo games like mario.. the only game from nintendo that i like is the zelda. other than that, 3rd party titles works great. yes i do own a pc, and all the ps generations. but after seeing the ces18, im kinda disappointed.. i really wanted other third party titles in there like maybe a gta or witcher. i dont mind playing the games at mid or low setting at 30 fps as long as it's playable. but i dont think thats gonna happen anytime soon. sooo.. yeah.. the concept is great. if you dont own a portable device right now, get the switch. its great. but if you want good games on the go, i prefer the vita..

SuperMarioMC98 (26 days ago)
the vita has a software recovery by going to safe mode but if the switch glitches you just throw it and thats not cool at all i highly recommend not buying this and for a compare with the ps vita it (ps vita) has a lot more software included and a welcome park if you cant find a game that supports ALL FEATURES ! the vita also has a music and video and A BROWSER app and all the psn stuff that cant be found anywhere else like near ! its just the best with all those wonderful games especially japanese games and killzone and MINECRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAFT !

Lava Yuki (29 days ago)
I'm kind of wondering, does the Switch replace the 3DS or the Wii? It seems to fit somewhere in between, but I much prefer Sony when it comes to home consoles and also for better the online capability and trophies. Nintendo never really had any games that interested me besides Pokemon which I lost interest in after AS/OR.

I‘m a Nintendo Fan but i‘m even more a Zelda Lover! I played every game released for the DS/3DS and now I‘d love to play the new game BotW. Is it worth buying the new device just because of one game (maybe also the next Pokemon as well)? Are there other good games yet?

I am planing to buy the htc vive and i was talking to my friends about it, they disliked my idea to buy it and said it is bad and i knew they did not have any idea what they were talking about. So that made me remember the time i argued with a friend who bought the switch, i told him its boring and so on and now that i hear my hipocracy i am doing reserch so can people tell me what the hype is about, tnx :).

I realized about a year ago that having quality games is just so much better than playing at 4K and having the best graphics. Some people just take longer than I did to realize.

I never play it docked. If your looking for a home console buy a PlayStation for the same price but for something you can use socially at your friends or even playing Skyrim in bed then buy a switch.
DarkSeeker117 (1 month ago)
As a first Nintendo console owner I just recently bought one for my breaks at work and a few things really disappointed me no Bluetooth audio support, music storage, Netflix or Spotify as a portable gaming device it’s fun with a cool concept but with the next gen devices out there this console is still behind in major ways, doom, LA Noire, Skyrim, are all downgrades from what I’m used to hopefully some new releases or exclusives will help me change my decision but right now I feel like I’m kicking myself for not doing much research on it

Bought the switch a week ago and I love the experience i've had with it. The only issue I have ran into the JoyCon's is ONE time i did not fully click the joycon into place and it interrupted my game once or twice until I finally figured it out. But I love the switch so far.

why don't we just be grateful for what Nintendo gave us. It could be there last console for all we know. And I don't want to hear about the debatable topics with what I said. I just wish people would be more grateful. like Nintendo has been going longer then Xbox so.....

Is it a good console because I might get it and is it gonna discontinue thats what I'm worried about. If you guy know the answers please reply.
Omega-Xis (1 month ago)
Zaakir the Gamer You need updated info. The Switch sold millions, passing the WiiU sales numbers by a landslide in the first week. Don’t listen to this video. Almost all the problems have been solved either by accessories or simple software upgrades. When I saw your comment about it being discontinued, LMAO! Being under a rock is harder than I thought.

I bought the Switch a year after it’s release to give the console time to update and get some more games. I’ve had it for 6 months now, haven’t broken anything, my screen on the handheld isn’t scratched up. I’m very careful with it of course. I have four joy-cons. The classic Red and Blue and then the Splatoon Green and Pink. I plan on getting the nice black ones sometime soon. I never was a fan of the pro controller and I have a travel case for it. I believe the console is a good 9/10

What is it with Nintendo and lack of bluetooth?
Mr Memelord (2 months ago)
Bro I only bought it because of Zelda breath of the wild best damn Zelda game I’ve ever played plus it’s portable if you get the black one it’s more sturdy and if you have some nice headphones you can get some pretty good sound out of it too there are a lot of pros and cons about it but overall this was probably the pinnacle of Nintendo
small one (2 months ago)
As a broke gamer, I'm still currently saving up all the money I can for the Switch, and it looks 100% worth it. I've only played what little I have in the store on the demo cart, but even then I'm excited about the quality of not only the hardware, but the games themselves!!! I haven't been this excited in a long time, and I know that even if I have to wait another year that it'll be a great console to have!
