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??

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 !

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 :).

“Only going to appeal to a small group of gamers...” One year later, one of the fastest selling consoles of all time.
MusaAnarchy (20 days ago)
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 (20 days 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 (23 days 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 like the joy con grip but I might get the pro controller for that classic gaming feel

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 (1 month 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

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!

A Casselman (1 month ago)
Love my Switch but I understand the hesitation in buying it straight away. I bought it after both Zelda and Odyssey were released and I have no regrets. Both are masterpieces and they have hours upon hours of quality game play. They are the first games to buy. My reason for getting the Switch at this point is the mass release of games for 2018. I could not afford to buy a Switch and like 5 or 6 $80 games all around the same time. My biggest issue is the lack of Virtual Console at this stage. I really loved it on the WiiU and I desperately want to play the older Zelda games, especially the HD Windwaker and Twilight Princess on the Switch. I really, really want Nintendo to get on this. I mean if they can port Skyrim and other 3rd party games, they really should offer the same vintage library their older console provided. Hell, even the 3DS has the Switch beat on VC.

Skyrim, La Noire, and Minecraft are my top 3 I'll be playing when I get the switch hopefully in the next month or so! #Hyped #Not #Just #Hype

You have pretty valid points about this console. I have been thinking of buying this because I love Super Mario games and it would be really cool to share this game with my brothers. I guess I have wait. Thank you.

I bought one and I love it the games that Nintendo makes have always been my favorites and you can't get them on any other system!
Maple_Hobbit (2 months ago)
If Nintendo released an upgraded switch 2.0 which fixed at least most of the issues with the physical units I’d have no problem picking one up, but every one of my friends who has picked up a switch has had a ton of issues with their units. One of them even got one that had a defective battery, and the damn thing wouldn’t even start! It just doesn’t seem like it’s quite at that level of quality you’d expect from Microsoft, Sony, or even old Nintendo. Also, the tiny thumbsticks drive me nuts.
Sebastian Michaelis (2 months ago)
I like how you made a channel about before buying games and stuff.it really helps clear up any confusion or worries about buying games and consoles.especially when it's not exactly a cheap hobby.So this helps me decide whenever I wanna buy something new.So I decided to subscribe👍
ToastyMcStrudel (2 months ago)
I feel like with the dock you should be able to connect a gpu to it so pc players like me can have some quality back saying its trying to reach all types of gamers Ps. If there is a optimization issue with this tell me bc i just came up with this idea

LIMuscle89 (2 months ago)
I like how they didn't stray away from the good ol' fashion recipe of concentrating on making good games and a good, simple system. This is one of the cases where I honestly believe, less is more. The newest consoles have become too complicated IMHO. I want to just buy a game, pop it in and be able to start playing.
