    About the screen; maybe they went with plastic-with-possible-scratches rather than gorilla-glass-with-no-scratches-but-breaks-on-its-first-drop because they're after durability. As long as it's a portable, they know the chances of it being dropped is high. If this is why, I'd honestly rather this then. I don't want to deal with a broken screen and having to repair it for the same price of a new Switch. There are tempered glass screen protectors that are recommended for the Switch and they're affordable. Should be good solution for anti-scratch :)

    At least the left joycon issues have been identified and fixed for future production (SOURCE: Eurogamer).

    I hope there's an easy way to figure out if the console on the shelf comes with the newer revision. I vaguely remember you could do it with previous PlayStation revisions by looking for a certain product code on the box.

    More than anything I'm just glad that the problem has been acknowledged, I was (wrongly) convinced they'd sweep it under the carpet.

    I'm glad how wrong I was about this console. It has really taken off. Won't get one for now but I am keeping my eye open for deals or price drops.

    nintendo need to realise gimmicks get you nowhere after a few years- the wii stopped selling after 2009

    as well,the switch (and nintendo consoles generally) is easy to hack compared to its competitors and therefore easier to pirate on

    Nintendo act like they can push 3rd parties like a sack of horseshit and get away with it too

    And don't get me started on fan treatment... Its like they dont want promotion

    This thing will die by 2020. I hate Nintendo post-2005 tbh.

    On the verge on going for this. Anyone here have a UK online account? How do the free classic games work? Do they stay on the account after the release month, like psn plus games?

    I am actually most excited for this right now to revisit old classics, along with classic Nintendo games I never played.

    @Isslander 2 games are added each month and they stay on there. You just download the NES app and you find everything in there.

    Also, if you have Amazon Prime, there's an offer now where you can get 12 months of Switch online for free, through Twitch Prime.

    Oops, I just got one. Went into the online trial, checking out these old games which usually take about 30 seconds because I am so bad at them. Also got Outrun.
    So basically now I have a very expensive Outrun machine. Please recommend some games.

    I got Golf Story and Dead Cells, barely dipped a toe in both. So far though, no joke, my favourite game is Donkey Kong. The Nes game.

    What type of games are you into? Mario Odyssey, Zelda BOTW, Mario x Rabbits are all good games. Just depends what genre you like. Also Yoshi's crafted world came out recently. There are a few Wii U games that were remastered for Switch too, like, Mario kart and New super Mario Bros. If you're into third party games, there are few good ones on there two, Doom being one. There are a ton of Indies in the eshop too.

    Of the Nintendo originals, I think I might get New Super Mario Bros. Right now I am more interested in retro and indies. Added Baba is You and Donkey Kong Jr. to the library.
    DK jr. is so brutal, the very first level hard af. Mario is a real piece of shit in that game, a real Breaking Bad turn since Donkey Kong.

    My brain is no match for Baba is You but I still try.

    Heads up, and speaking of heads, Cuphead is coming to the Switch tomorrow. Can't wait to try it.
