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.

1) the screen has never gotten a scratch after hundreds of hours of use. Even with some fairly casual handling a couple of drops. Not a scratch. Maybe I’m lucky, but IMO, the plastic seems sufficiently durable.
2) The joy-con connectivity problem is well-sorted at this point.
3) Online play is cheap enough to not be a bother ($20/year) and I can’t make judgments until it goes live.
4) I don’t know if I’d call this console “cheap” anymore. For its price point, it is extremely sturdy and well-made.
5) The library is growing fast, with great content. A good library is an important point for a console.
6) Most importantly: It is my all-time favorite gaming system. I’m a Nintendo fan, for sure, but I’ve been primarily a PC gamer for the past few years. I hardly play PC games much right now.
I didn't really know much about it, so I wasn't really looking forward to spending $300 for it. We looked it up and learned that it's basically a giant upgrade to his 3DS, which made it more worth it to me because he *loves* his 3DS. He recently got the Wii U and when we were looking at games for the Nintendo Switch he was commenting on the newer games and upgrades and which ones were going to be the best one. He ranked them all in order of which he wants first so we started with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (http://amzn.to/2hdXjgb), then Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (http://amzn.to/2uOsrpP), then Splatoon 2 (http://amzn.to/2v9kgXM) and he loves them all. He is really looking forward to Pokken Tournament Dx (http://amzn.to/2v92vHO) coming out in September and wants to get 1-2 Switch (http://amzn.to/2hdXRCL).
In this video, he tells you all his favorite things about it, which mainly comes down to graphics and user interface. The battery lasts him about 2 days and he plays it regularly. He loves that you can create multiple user profiles so if someone wants to play his game they won't delete 'his' game but can create one on their profile on his Switch. It does only have 32gb but can upgrade it with a higher GB Mirco SD card (http://amzn.to/2he7Fg6), which makes me happy.
In the video, he calls the controller the Xbox 360 controller only because when he first opened it up he said it was almost just like that controller and he plays that system often so he was used to it already. You can play this system in a number of ways with multiple people. I love how universal it is. I think it was totally worth the money because of how much he will use it. If your kid (or you) is already a lover of 3DS then this is a no brainer purchase. Now that I understand more of what it is, I'd recommend it if someone was thinking about purchasing this for their kid. Personally, I'm not a gamer so it doesn't phase me but I cannot wait till they come out with Donkey Kong (there are rumors but nothing has been confirmed). When they come out with that, I may get one for myself.
Nintendo is also offering access to their web service for free until 2018 and then it is only $20 a year which is the cheapest I've yet to see it this low (comparing it to Xbox and PS4). Overall, we are all really happy with this purchase. I got it when Amazon lowered their price back to the ((normal)) of $299.00 I would ((not)) pay more than that. The games are between $50-$60 now and you can pre-order some on Prime and get them 20% off. So watch Amazon's prices and wait for them to lower. I joined CamelCamelCamel and got an email alert as soon as it went down. So worth it.
