    If you bought it from Amazon, they're usually pretty good about giving you a voucher or something to cover the difference.

    Yeah. I contacted them. I definitely would have bought it at that price so I guess I can't have buyer's remorse anymore.

    It's now about 60 euro cheaper in the UK than in Ireland.

    @JoelStinty i understand the point your making but that comes down to the developer really. On Xbox I would always play a game until I felt it was finished then try completing the achievements on subsequent play throughs. If a developer makes their list just a massive boring "kill monster x 300 times or 600 kills with a shovel then detracts from a games need to have them. It didn't ruin any of the fallout games for me.

    I completely disagree that it's a chore though And that nintendo actually think that. Its only a chore if u see it as one. And if u did see it as one surely you would just turn the notifications off and forget about them. All it would do is give gamers more choice for their 50.

    I got a 25.99 refund. It should have been just 20 as that 5.99 is extra VAT for Ireland. I'm not complaining though. Amazon has excellent customer service.

    Like the content from the 3rd parties that the switch is getting as well as the usual Nintendo brilliance. Think I might have to go for one with this price cut.

    I might get Skyrim on it when the price drops to a reasonable amount. I might actually finish the game at last. Playing Skyrim on the bus is a bit ridiculous.

    I've never scratched a single device in my life, my original Game Boy is still like brand new.

    I've friggin scratched my Switch. Docked it gently like always but it didn't feel quite right so pulled it out and there's now a faint scratch down the left side.

    Why didn't they make a dock like the Wii U?

    (can barely see the scratch and it's on the black bit so don't notice at all while playing but still annoying)

    I got my Switch today. It's absolutely tiny. Very nice piece of kit. I traded in my Wii U copy of Zelda and got the Switch version. I'll probably pick up Arms and wait for Mario.

    It looks lovely, but if I'm honest I'd prefer they hadn't added a chunk of tutorial in the middle of the Direct. More games please :p

    @MrFlay Doesn't look bad, does it? :) But oddly lumpen and last-gen looking compared to Zelda: BotW, which ironically was built with the assistance of Monolith.

    Doom is a surprise! Genuinely didn't see that coming. i think it's supposed to be quite good, according to people on EG, but I never got round to playing it myself.

    Holy shit, Doom and Wolfenstein II on Switch! Will be interesting to see how they look, as Doom has one of the most impressive engines of any game to-date.

    @DFawkes The new Doom is superb! Especially if you were ever into old school shooters back in the day. It's like them, but with everything cranked up to 11.

    Doom, Wolfenstein, Skyrim, Fifa, WWE2K, NBA - actual third party support on a Nintendo console?

    Switch has so much potential

    Bethesda are going all in. I guess pre-orders for Skyrim are good.

    My mind is currently set to boggled now. How the fuck have they crammed those games on the Switch? Shooting Nazis in the face on the train or on the toilet...this is the dream.

    Super Mario Odyssey looks like a bonafide classic and the most exciting Mario game since Mario 64! Really can't wait, but kind of want to wait until Christmas for it. Appears to be pure magic from everything we've seen.

    Almost certainly going to be another 10/10 (sorry, 'Essential') across the board, which will put Nintendo in the odd position of competition against itself for 'Game of the Year' in nearly all gaming publications.

    Mario looks incredible,love Uncle Amiibo :)
    I really liked the Square Enix JRPG, so refreshing to see something different done with pixel art.
    Xenoblade 2 looks great too.

    3D World was a classic but Odyssey looks even better.

    Breath of the Wild and Odyssey look worth buying a Switch for alone.
