If you have a Wii-U, not at the moment.

If you don't have a Wii-U, it might be a good investment since that's the system Nintendo and other devs are currently going to make games on.

Your choice really, lol.

Not just for Zelda, just saying investment-wise, if you like Nintendo products and like what they've showed thus far for their future games on the Switch, then go for it.

If not, and you have a Wii-U, just buy Zelda on that console if that's one of your motivations. It's the same game with differences being very negligible.

as someone who spends a sizable chunk of their waking hours on the toilet, yes

also BotW has been nothing short of jaw-droppingly amazing so far

Admittedly, I wanted to get the Switch when it launched, but there was no place in stock. Maybe this was a blessing in disguise, because maybe combo deals might happen for when I eventually do buy it.

That's another factor to consider I suppose if you're debating on getting it now or later.

Yeah, Zelda alone isn't worth $400 to me -- what other games coming up are worthwhile?

Worth it? Yes. Worth buying now? Not from what I've seen.

Will probably wait until they work out the kinks and stuff isn't constantly sold out. Not really a fan of the "lol dead pixels are okay!" explanation

BotW has so far been amazing to me, it's mindblowing that it's technically a handheld open world rpg at this point, so many small details and stuff that just makes it so good

It's not a good investment because there is a price cut to be expected. Just throwing that out there. I'll wait until 2018 at least for sure.

Careful, the Wii-U had been out 4 years without any noticeable price cut for the system itself. Combo deals on the other hand...

Most the time I only end up buying a console for just 1 or a few games. In my case, it's not worth it.

If you're unsure about purchasing it, you could wait a few months for the console to mature.

The fact they think its ok at all is a red flag.

Also, I'm really sad nintendo makes good games. It makes them harder to hate on.

inDheart's got the right attitude about it I think.

Consider it a bias piece, but the video below kind of struck me the wrong way. I mean sure, things can go wrong and will go wrong with certain people, but consistently across many? ehhhhhhhh. I'd rather stick with the WiiU for right now and see where things go in 6 months to a year.

Basically a compilation of everyone who has had something go wrong for them on the Nintendo Switch. Sources in video description.

Don't forget to take into account that it is a vocal/visible minority of people that are having problems. While I don't know the numbers, given that at least well over a million Switches have been purchased, there will of course a relative few outliers that will have problems. It's the case with any new product.

Default Re: Is the Switch worth it?

Also I haven't been so glued to a console on release, let alone on one game, since possibly the DS or the 360. It's a phenomenal console with a game changing idea.

For some anecdotal references:

I have taken my switch to class and played through it all day, honestly the battery life seems great for the quality of game it's running.

In BotW specifically, the only time I have experienced noteworthy frame rate drops is when I'm connected to a TV and I'm initially entering an area with a lot of tall grass.

The controllers are of course small, but they are actually very comfortable.

The 1 drawback/reservation I have right now, is that the "controller" thing that is supplied with the Switch doesn't have a connectable USB port to charge your joy-cons while playing, you have to buy another one separately.

But honestly I've had so much fun with this console, and you can literally feel the potential in it while using it.

Will agree that Nintendo themselves saying dead pixels is okay is pretty "lmao wat" material I've ever seen from a business.
