So I don't understand the logic of pre-ordering and then cancelling because you're disappointed with what's on offer suddenly.
I'm also going in quite pessimistic, I'm expecting another Wii U, but the positives are that it will be a Wii U in terms of being home to some amazing Nintendo games again and that's about it. But I'm ok with that. I can't wait for Zelda, Mario Kart and Splatoon.
I got my money's worth out of buying the Wii U on launch, and I'll get my moneys worth out of the switch too.
And if it is a success with a massive catalogue of games then I'll be even happier. I just can't lose.
Roll on March 3rd....
For me it was more just I placed a preorder out of old (and waning) loyalty to Nintendo and wanting to support them, rather than being truly interested in the hardware (I dislike it as a console/PS gamer who doesn't like or have much use for portables) or the games (not enough announced for year 1 so far for me).
So it's not that anything changed, just that I realized it was a dumb preorder for me personally as I'm clearly in a situation where I should wait until I'm actually excited to play a few games before buying, especially since I'm way more interested in PS4/PC games the next few months than Zelda or anything on Switch that's been announced. I also didn't really enjoy Wii, Wii U or 3DS, so I'd kind of like too take a break from Nintendo and decide if I still need them period to be honest.
Finances changed a bit too as we just booked a 10 day trip through Italy and into Athens so best not to spend the money on Switch as well right now. I thought about it for the flights, but I don't want to hassle with lugging around valueable electronics when trying to pack light and stay in hostels etc.
