High prices for games, small launch catalog, relatively expensive price for what is essentially gaming tablet hardware, and poor performance when docked to the TV (which, in the end, has no real hardware in the dock)...

Currently finding it hard to see why you would want one of these unless you intended to travel around with it primarily and dock it to the TV secondary, and even then, the prices are insane.

Given the way Nintendo treats their fans, that alone means I refuse to touch anything Nintendo.

On top of a brand new online fee that includes a free NES or SNES ROM rental for 30 whole days,...yeah I have no interest in this thing.

The online thing is quite inexplicable given how few decent online titles Nintendo consoles tend to have...

I'm probably going to get one when it comes down in price, it does look fun to me.

I like the switch so far, only complaint is price of games (especially here in Australia). However, Nintendo games always seem to be expensive.
