Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Console
Get the gaming system that lets you play the games you want, wherever you are, however you like.
Includes the Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch dock in black, with contrasting left and right Joy‑Con controllers—one red, one blue
Introducing Nintendo Switch, the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.
Home Gaming System
At home the main unit rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room.
Lift Nintendo Switch from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode for on-the-go gaming. By sharing Joy-Con, players can go head-to-head while away from home. You can also enjoy the same great games in tabletop mode by using the included stand to prop the system up.
New Play Styles
Remove the detachable Joy-Con from either side of Nintendo Switch for more play styles:
- One player can use a Joy-Con in each hand
- Two players can each take one
- Multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options (additional Joy-Con sold separately)
- Slip a set of Joy-Con into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
Bring together up to 8 Nintendo Switch systems for local face-to-face multiplayer.
Are Parental Controls available for the Nintendo Switch console?
Yes, a robust set of options is included to help both parents and kids have the best possible gaming experience.
Parents can set controls on the system, or use the free Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to set restrictions on games and purchases, monitor gaming time, and more.

My first impression of the console was, wow, this thing is little. The joy cons are actually tiny. I'm a full size adult. But I slid the joy cons onto the sides of the tablet portion of the console and powered it up, created a Nintendo account (on my phone), signed in and did an update to the console and controllers. Neither took long. I never once used the touch screen and it took all of a minute for me to acclimate to the size and shape of the controls. It feels good even with full size hands which was surprising.
Next I popped in the physical copy of Super Mario Odyssey that I preordered alongside my new console. I can't believe how tiny the game cards are, even smaller than 3DS cards. Anyways, the game was ready within a minute or 2, which is a huge relief from the long installs on a lot of PS4/Xbone games. The game fired up fast and runs great, and I played it for quite a while in portable mode before realizing, hey, I could be playing this on my TV.
That's a big point, because the portable mode feels almost completely natural with no restrictions. This is truly the game changing feature it's marketed as. Playing the game with the entire system in your hands makes the Switch's versatility a huge added benefit vs. other consoles. The screen looks fantastic and definitely not too small. Granted you're dealing with significantly less technical power than other consoles, but the Switch makes up for it with polish. Everything I've done so far has worked excellent, and I can't wait to explore more of the Switch library.
I never imagined that coming from gaming on the big screen to this would feel so good, but the Nintendo Switch is probably now the easiest recommendation I could make to anyone looking for a new game console.
The games that are out aren't really that great because most of them are really bad ports either from PC or other consoles. This is okay if you like limited battery life and crappy ports. The Switch itself is just a gaming console, there is no netflix, hulu, facebook etc.. I guess this is because they dont want to have any security exploits, but that really limits the use of the console. Online isn't free and that isn't a surprise nowadays and for $20 a year that isn't bad, but the fact that some of their biggest games don't support cloud saves is unacceptable. The online connection is also a pile because its P2P. The switch isn't for you if you take gaming seriously and what I mean is that if you only like to play a game every once in a while then this is for you, but if you competitively play games online then don't buy this.
Do yourself a favor and do not buy this product unless you are willing to spend about $70 on new joy-cons every 3 months. Nintendo gives only 3 months of warranty for the joy-cons probably because they know this is how long they can last with average usage. After 3 months my joy-con sticks started to drift. I cleaned them with diluted alcohol and that fixed the problem for a couple of days. Now they drift so badly and cleaning the sticks could not fix the problem. I would give this product 5 stars if the problem with joy-cons was solved. So disappointed!

Some background: I am a CS student who has to live in the college dorm as mandated. Student life can be hectic with projects, assigments and stuff and there isn't much one can do in a dorm-room with mediocre wifi and a lot of a other minor restrictions of keeping something for entertainment. I used to feel bored a lot and really had nothing else to do here.
I then found out about Nintendo Switch and decided to do some research into it. I was really intrigured by it as it brought back childhood memories of having a PSP (a handheld console like this for those who do not know). Plus, the additional factor of it having "MARIO" games in itself was nostalgic enough. Thus, I took a leap of faith (considering this has no warranty in India) and bought it on a whim. I also bought a 256gig microSD card as I planned to go digital (who has space for loads of those cartridge boxes in a tiny dorm room anyways. Also, they get lost and scratched so...). The moment I held it and played my first game (Smash Bros Ultimate), I knew I made the right choice. IT IS JUST SO MUCH FUN! Props to Nintendo for making this amazing console and making awesome new versions of the old classics (Zelda BOTW and Super Mario Bros being a few)! Its a perfect pick-it-up-and-play console which isn't "serious" or distracting enough to distract me from my studies (it can be if you buy beautiful and engaging RPGs like Zelda and Xenoblade but I didn't haha).
The UI of this console also gets a lot of appreciation from me being a budding front-end developer myself. Its slick, fast and did I say awesome? It is to the point and keeps the gaming aspect of it to the front with a bold square boxed array of your downloaded/current cartridge's games being the main menu. I am in love with just every aspect of it!
TL;DR This is an awesome console for any age group and with the amount of games it has (and has coming) will surely keep you entertained for ages!
Some general tips for Indian buyers:
0. No warranty (but you already know that don't you?) but the build quality is reliable enough that you probably won't be needing it anytime soon.
1. Indian PayPal accounts work with this console so use that (haven't tested credit/debit cards but I hear Axis/ICICI work).
2. I encourage you to buy digital games as they give you virtual coin credits which can take a few bucks off your next game purchase. Also, they are a bit cheaper than physical copies due to no regional pricing for them (physical copies) in India.
3. The charger that comes in the box is a flat-pin 110-240V brick but can be used as-is if any ports of your house has the flat-pin connector.
