I was looking forward to this. Honestly the price puts me off Nearly £300 and over £300 with the accessories you'll more than likely want.

Not an amazing amount of games at launch and an Nvidia Shield tablet is just as powerful for half the cost.

Saying that, I want it to do well as the Wii U flopped horrendously.

I'm going over a friends tonight who has Playstation VR. A few of them have had a go and they feel sick after not much gaming so be interesting to try it for myself.

Ref the Switch and VR. Yes. It's in the pipeline and they want to support it. A Patent was filed for it and more recently they've said they will release VR for it when they work out how people can play it for longer periods of time.

At this point, I see VR as a gimmick.

I think this is Nintendo's last throw of the dice, I personally can't see them becoming number 1 anymore, Sony and Microsoft are too far ahead now.

They aren't aiming for the hardcore gamer though. They want people who bought the wii, gameboys and Nintendo DS's to buy the switch as it's basically an all in one device.

Games on the go and if you want to, games on the big TV too.

The PS Vita is dead. There is no other competition in that market place for 'REAL' games. I say real games as I don't consider mobile apps fully immersive gaming.

Way too expensive for me at £300.

If it fails they'll just drop it and move onto something else like they have with the Wii U

I'm undecided. I would like to get one when the price drops as I think some brand new, decent graphics nintendo favourites like mario etc would be really nice.

Is a bit of a bummer that not all games are going to support TV mode.

Usually always grab the Nintendo consoles purely for Zelda. Not sure on the switch though, almost another gimmick really and the power of it isn't impressive compared to the older PS4 and XB1.

If you have the wii U, the same Zelda game is coming out for that.
