Nintendo Switch


Recommended Posts

Just in case people didn’t know, if you have an Online sub, you can go into the JP eShop with your JP account, download the Famicom service, and play all the games in that with your normal account.

 

There’s JP versions of many of the same games as the UK service, but also JP only stuff like Fire Emblem and that Sumo wrestling game.

Just downloaded it, and watched someone win a chubby shiba inu plush...

 

Deleted it before I spent a fortune on it!

 

But you can win a vegetable chopper!

He wasn't being stupid. His issue is on point. Nintendo hardware and software are expensive and don't get priced down as much as Ps4 and Xbox. Is this a good thing for Nintendo? Their sales department need to analyse. 

 

I never said he was being stupid, I said he was trying to make a point in a stupid way.

 

Nintendo hard- and software doesn't get priced down too often because they don't need to price down - they are doing just fine on their current model without needed to get involved in Sony and Microsoft's never ending loss leading tech and sales wars.

 

On the flip side, seeing things marked down a few weeks or a month after release is hardly an inspiring sign of quality, even if it has now become an expectation. How often do we read 'I'll just wait a few weeks till it's less than £30'?

I checked with Nintendo’s sales department and they had this update:

Sure, the question is would it print even more money in case of lower prices? That's some speculation right here. More units sold at lower prices vs fewer/(current level of) units at current prices

Their sales are really healthy, they have no need to lower the prices, although they do have eshop sales from time to time.

I suspect they will roll out "Nintendo Selects" for Switch at some point in the next 12 months, that will get some like me who have not jumped yet get a switch. I find the high price of 3DS software a bit much to swallow but the selects range has some of the best games at a very decent price. 

 

I don't have a lot of spare money so the high prices of Nintendo irk me a bit, but it obviously makes business sense for them, and attaches a value to the software. It also adds to more stable sales forecasts for them, they have years of pricing models to work from.

It has, but it should be repeated on every page frankly because it looks so amazing.

 

I've never played this but keep seeing it lauded to the high heavens. What makes it so good, beyond nostalgia?

Tight, focused tracks; joyous handling; bright blue skies and weird collections of polygons that somewhat resemble people doing daft things in the background. 

 

Its an an absolute joy to play. 5 minutes of playtime you’ll want to repeat over and over again. Everything you’d hope for in a racing game.

Sounds good. I may check it out if the price is right.

What’s the best Switch bundle deal at the moment?

 

Friends kid wants to get one asap.

 

Nothing good really. Amazon are doing them for 279 on their own (in stock from the 28th), or Smyths doing them for 299 with Mari Kart or Yoshi .

It's Out Run but rewards you with more music at every checkpoint!

 

And keeps telling me to Time Warp (32X version)

From Nintendolife:

Update: We've spoken to a HonSon representative about the product listings in question, and have been told that the company has based these products on "secret" information and that it is waiting for Nintendo to officially confirm the system before putting these items into production; HonSon will then "adjust the model to ensure it can perfectly suit the console". The representative also confirmed that, based on the information it has received, the Switch Mini is (as the name suggests) "a little smaller" than the current version.

 

So they guessed and made it up.

I guess it would make sense to release a mini/extra portable and cheaper version of the Switch just in time for a new Pokémon game. Cheaper and more portable fits the classic series use cases of kids and trainers on the go.
