    SNES Mini

    They have come back in stock. If you look at the recent stock history updates on http://m.stockinformer.co.uk/checker-super-nintendo-entertainment-system-snes it looks like Tesco are releasing them in batches every 20 minutes. So if you miss out this time, might be worth checking again from about ten past 9.

    Nintendo Switch

    Hi fellow Nintendo Switch beta testers. So I got my left Joy-Con repaired by Nintendo. It arrived back today. First impressions are good and they do seem to have fixed the issue. Performance now seems to be broadly on par with the right Joy-Con, in fact it might even be a little better, meaning that I can now play Zelda with my hands behind my back or from just outside the room or (more importantly) on the sofa with the Joy-Cons resting on my fleshy watery legs. Previously the connection was dropping out regularly unless I was sat right next to the Switch. So I'm pleased and can start giving Nintendo more of my money and my love again. They also enclosed a letter renewing my warranty and which bizarrely also says that the fault they identified was an "operating system problem" but that it has "now been rectified by adjusted". Maybe "adjusted" is one of their technicians. Thanks adjusted. They fixed it and returned it within a week of receipt which I was quite impressed by. Although you have to send it by Parcelforce, they return it by DPD so you get a delivery window plus options to reschedule delivery if you aren't going to be in. One thing to be aware of - the guy at Nintendo customer services who I booked the repair with did try to encourage me to return the console to the retailer first, but explaining that I would have to return the whole console and didn't want to lose my precious Zelda save was enough to get him to book the repair.

    Nintendo Switch

    The left Joy-Con problem has been quite severe for me. On my sofa I’m only 2m away from the TV / Switch and I am experiencing regular dropouts in the connection. I can more or less eliminate the problem by sitting right in front of the TV (about 1m away) but that’s hardly an ideal solution. No aquariums or microwaves under my TV but the wireless access point is there and I can’t move the Switch more than about 4 feet away from that, which doesn’t seem to be fixing the issue anyway. I think interference must be the problem because if I set the Switch up in tabletop mode away from any wifi / bluetooth devices then the controller response is massively improved. I can get 4 - 5m away before the left Joy-Con starts struggling. Really hope this can be fixed with a system update. I’m so glad I bought a pro controller in the meantime. It’s such a nice bit of hardware though and Zelda is just fantastic
  4. Me too I especially like the way they waited until the day before release to cancel the orders, the cheeky scamps. Thank god for Amazon Prime. Apparently 'electrical items' were excluded from the offer so I'm hoping my (discounted) order for the official carry case survives, because I'm taking the Switch on my travels at the weekend. The order is still showing as processing and says 'estimated delivery 03/03/17 - awaiting stock pick' in my account, but then so is the order for the pro controller... Are the delivery estimates on Zavvi's website reliable?
