Does anyone else anticipate buying more digitally, or does the rumoured internal storage specs concern you, even with SD card storage?

Storage is a concern, and I like being able to resell--especially with Nintendo since their games hold value and I don't have to rush to beat them before the prices tank.

So I'd reserve digital there for things like Animal Crossing, Splatoon that are long-term, pick up and play games as those are great to not have to switch carts as you note.

Pretty much same as I do on other platforms, though there I also buy cheap digital games that are priced low enough that I don't care about not being able to resell, but that doesn't really happen often with Nintendo first party stuff or their major third party exclusives.

Don't bother clicking though, he said:

I think the pre-order limits are indicative of a larger problem with Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft's retail distribution chain as compared to say Apple's.

I can place an order for an iPhone at Apple.com as soon as pre-orders open and I know I'm locked in place and I can place the same order at a Verizon or AT&T store and know I dont have to keep following up to get the item. It will ship when my place in the virtual line comes up.

The video game companies dont do this and cap pre-orders at a rather low level and if the item is hot force customers to jump from store to store in hopes of finding one.

It wouldn't prevent scalping (look at the price of AirPods for example), but it would certainly be less annoying to have to have one retail transaction that results in a purchase even if someone has to wait for shipping.

Man, I had a dream about the new 3D Mario this past night. It was:

- Like a mix between Mario Galaxy (having some planetoid like parts) and Super Mario 64, as being more open ended in design.
- Looked Amazing. Like a more "painted" style in comparison to the segments shown in the Switch First Look.
- Several Characters were playable, each with their own abilities, required to progress through certain areas of the game.
- Music certainly had a Super Mario 64 vibe to it.
- It was like a mix between open world and level based. Imagine a Hub like Mario 64, Galaxy, or Sunshine, but much bigger and more varied, with several objectives. Each level is a subarea contained in this bigger hub, with no screen transition like in the aforementioned games.

It was amazing, and now I'll probably be a bit disappointed with the real thing :(

edit: Oh yeah, NateDrake made a video stating Gamestop will open their Pre-orders on Friday the 13th and will announce a trade-in promo for current gen consoles towards it.

Complain to me about misinformation instead of him if late.

I'll share what I heard today concerning GameStop pre-orders. Will be available once the stores open on Friday morning, allocations differs per-store, and a trade-in promo will be detailed this week - so if you are looking to unload your PS4, Xbox One, or Wii U for trade credit you'll hear about the promo this week. And GameStop will have a list for those who miss pre-orders but want to be emailed or called if extra pre-orders become available.

Which is reasonable considering the whole US would probably only get 600k-800k units out of a 2 million WW shipment from Nintendo.

There's also that there could be additional shipments in the last half of the month, so not all 2 million would be there day one.

What will feel like an eternity is when the clock strikes zero and the stream does not start and a message pops up on screen saying "The event will begin shortly". Sony used to be bad for this at E3 where would be waiting 10-15 minutes.
